I just love this...don't really know why this is one of my fav's but it is...
Love this pic but wish I had waited a second longer...
So much fun...so excited for the grandparents to be able to see some of the games through pics as they don't live close enough to get to be there. I am just so thankful that we were able to purchase this camera and for this blog that allows family and friends to be able to keep up with what's going on in our neck of the woods.

So today, I packed all my fun stuff up and drove to Norman, thinking I would play around on campus and see if I could put some of this brain cramming into practice...only to get there...drag everything out and snap my first pic. Anticipating a great skyline including the football stadium pressbox...what I saw was the words "no card" displayed across my lcd screen. Nice... Where oh where you might ask was my memory card ...plugged in all nice and cozy in the laptop...at home. Way to be prepared!! Well I guess from now on I will make sure that I actually have my card with the rest of the stuff I am dragging all over the countryside in order to not do this again. Sometimes these little learning experiences are beneficial on down the road. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!! :o)

Fast forward many years later! Digital cameras are the only way to be in this technological era and my poor Canon Rebel has pined away in a dusty cabinet while a cheap point and shoot digital camera has taken it's place. Main reasons being 1) well its not digital 2) the amount of money that was spent on the original camera and lenses made me so sick that I just couldn't go through the process again and 3) I just hadn't taken the time to research...
One of my friends was just blogging about photography and having envy over seeing others' lenses...I hear you sister and I am so with you!! They are so expensive but so wonderful to have which is one of the biggest reasons why I have ademently refused to look at buying a new camera...and thus feeling cheated since I couldn't buy all of it at once. (Cheated...since even the most basic DSLR would be leaps and bounds above my point and shoot...I don't know how my mind reasons stuff out but somehow it gets to these beliefs in which upon later reflection I have no clue...anywho)
...all this of course precludes finding out one tiny little fact that has just changed my whole perspective overnight!! And the sad thing is, many of you probably already knew it...but for me...I just missed the boat completely! All of my canon lenses that I scrimped and saved for work with the new digital cameras!!!! WHAT DID YOU SAY??? Oh yes! It is true and I have been living underground in a cave for the past how many years??!!
So since I just happen to have two amazon gift cards given to us at Christmas and with my husband most graciously donating his half to the cause, we just purchased a "body only" (since all my lenses still work)new Canon Rebel digital camera and it will be shipping by Jan 7th or 8th!!
Can I just tell you that I feel like a kid waiting for Christmas? I can't hardly wait...it's seriously gonna kill me!! I am so excited to be able to take basketball pictures in a gym and actually have them be light enough to see faces and catch actions...okay well...I have to stop because I can just go on and on but just be warned that pictures are to come and add to that the whole deal of learning Photoshop...well there just simply is no words! Well there are...but I promise I'll stop!! It's the excitement!!!
