And ... we're back!

Our camera from Costco arrived today! We were going to wait for the day after Thanksgiving sales, but with Lily growing so fast ... we couldn't help ourselves. I never knew how picture crazy I was until we didn't have a camera! Johnny and I were thrilled when the little package arrived. However, as you can see from the picture above, someone else was not so thrilled. She thought the package was for her!

We christened the new camera at Coldstone as you can see in the picture below.


Our camera from Costco arrived today! We were going to wait for the day after Thanksgiving sales, but with Lily growing so fast ... we couldn't help ourselves. I never knew how picture crazy I was until we didn't have a camera!

Here's the latest updates in our lives:

  • Lily's weekly trips to the Little Gym appear to be paying off. While she is playing around the house I occasionally see her doing little dance moves that she learned in class. Pictures to come! She also climbs ANYTHING. She would spend all day on top of the kitchen table if I let her.
  • Lily's vocabulary is also expanding. Her latest words are hat and hot. The best part is that she pronounces hat and hot with a British accent. Sometime long, long ago I recall watching Teletubbies and hoping that someday I would have British children or children with British accents. Dreams do come true.
  • My brother Conner is in the MTC and, in fact, only has a week left in the MTC before he is off to Califonia.
  • Johnny and I saw Into the Woods at Hale Center Theatre last night. Amazing. Loved it. Especially since a friend I knew from high school as in it. I always enjoy seeing people I know doing things they are passionate about. For example, every month when I open the Ensign I always look for my friend Melissa's name first. It reminds me that I need to be stretching myself and working toward my dreams. I remember talking to Hilary and Ashlee earlier this year about how it's important to keep doing things you enjoy and learning new things. I don't suppose Signing Time counts? Anyways - long story short. I am eager to take back up some old hobbies and start a few new ones. Thanks for the inspiration everyone!

Yeah! I'm so happy for you guys that you got a camera! My parents fortunately bought us a new camera as well (early Christmas present), so we can take pictures as well. I was also sad when my camera died. I too am picture crazy. It's hard not to be with little ones growing & running around, wouldn't you agree?
