First pics with the Canon!

I got my new camera in today! Yippee!! 

Merry belated Christmas to me! Haha! 

I bought this with Christmas money & part of my Christmas bonus. Which is why i say, Merry Christmas to me! Haha. I ordered it around 12/28 & it said it would be in between 12/30 & 1/5. I was supposed to receive an email that it shipped, but i never did. So, yesterday, i checked the actual website & found that it had been SHIPPED! Days ago! & was on schedule to arrive on Tuesday! Which kinda felt like i really didn't have to wait that long. I guess since i thought they hadn't even shipped it yet! 

We had it delivered to Brad's parents because we knew his dad would be home & could sign for it. Tonight we went to Brad's parents for dinner & there it was! I was so excited!!

I fixed my plate & started reading the manual. Ha! Soon as i was done eating, i got the basics down (you know, the real basics. Like putting in the battery & turning it on... haha). And i started snapping away. 

I didn't have a lot of subjects. Jaimie & Mrs Cheryl were in no mood to be photographed, jaimie having just showered & Mrs. Cheryl in her gown, but i did snap some of Brad & the dog! Ha! And other random things around the house...just playing!

Obviously, i don't know what i'm doing yet & all that. Just have patience with me! It may be awhile before i know what i'm doing! And that's okay!

First pics with my Canon Rebel xs. 

random pics at my in-laws...

 Hehe - i love that!

pics of their dog Fani - a rhodesian ridgeback - isn't she beautiful?!

 She wouldn't look at me!

 She was unhappy about not being allowed in the kitchen...

 HUGE DOG! Haha.

She's beautiful!

And pics of the hubby...

 I was figuring out that you can snap one pic after another (duh - SLR - i knew it would do that but it was just fun to actually get to do it!) while he was trying to eat! Ha!

 love his blue eyes!

My handsome hubby!

Okay, that's all for now. I'm tired!


  1. Congrats on your new camera!! :-D We JUST got one this weekend too. I've been thinking about that camera when I eat, sleep, work... it's crazy! Soooo much to learn! Have fun :-)

  2. YAY for the new camera!! :)

  3. Yay for the new camera. I told my hubby I want one for my birthday...which is in March.

  4. I have the exact same camera, and I've had it since about September of 09, and it still feels as good in my hands as it did when I first got it. It's a great investment and really easy to learn! :) Congrats!

  5. so random, but pretty sure my mom had a duck figure like that when I was growing up, AND she used to buy those painted slates for people (the lady that makes them in BTR lives in my grandma's neighborhood).

  6. oh, and... YAY for having an SLR. Welcome to the addiction that is photography :) haha!

  7. I just got one too, Canon t2i...lots to learn! LOL
