A little of this and a little of that...

1. The Ryder Cup was AWESOME!! It was the most fun sporting event I have ever been to! We had such a good time with Brian's grandparents. I now have a new "little crush" on Paul Azinger! Ha Ha! His wife gave me a high-five as they were passing by in the golf cart. I was on Sport's Center several times!

2. Merry Christmas to us! Brian bought our Christmas present to each other on Monday night...A Canon Rebel! It is awesome. I have had such a good time taking pictures of Ellie and Charley. I have already been scolded because I haven't read the new book...Exposure...Develop your digital photography talent by Jeff Wignall. Ellie had a terrible afternoon yesterday. (She SCREAMED for 3 1/2 hours straight!!) Brian really wanted to do Chapter 1 in this book and couldn't understand why this wasn't interesting to me! (example: I photographed these lobster floats on a wharf in Maine on a slightly overcast day with very even lighting. Taken with a compact digital camera and exposed for 1/70 second at f/6.7, ISO 200, on a tripod.) All I wanted to do was stare at the television and not think about a thing! I guess I better get off this computer and work through Chapter 2. I would hate for the camera to be taken away from me after just two days! Thanks Brian for such an awesome present!

3. The White's are coming this weekend! I can't wait to see Amanda, Calvin and Addie this weekend. Ellie and Addie like to duke it out....so it should be tons of fun. I am sure I will have lots of pictures to post on Sunday!

Hello,

Well, now you can consider yourself scolded by the author of the book too :) Google name searches don't miss anything! The most important thing you should get from the book: take pictures that are *your* pictures--that show the world the way you see it!
