The kids are sick with different illnesses today. That makes extra work for me. But I'm still thankful today. You know why? I'm still not sick. And I know my babies will heal with time. I got to snuggle both of them a little extra today....and I loved it. :) Plus, Miss Magdalen was sick enough that she took 2 amazingly long naps (for her) and I got a little break. She needed that rest.
In the meantime, we saw this...
What a beautiful add-on to an otherwise FREEZING, cooped-up, cabin fever day. We didn't go outside, but it was great to watch it from our sunroom through all the windows.
OH! I almost forgot to write about the special delivery from today.
Chad received a package in the mail and it was the shoes from DSW that he ordered!!! Yeah!!!! That UPS man doesn't let the snow stop him.
Okay, I'm just kidding. I mean, yes, the shoes arrived but with that package was another box with MY name on it. Here is one of the things in it...
WOOHOO!!!!!!!! I have been wanting one of these for a really, really long time. Since I mainly take pictures for my own personal use I had told myself that it wasn't necessary, my Canon Powershot G4 was still working quite nicely. But, I got an extra special belated Christmas present from my Chad. He said I could go ahead and get it if my heart desired. I think I got a great deal. Yes, I got it (Canon EOS XS) on eBay. Yes, it's brand new. Yes, I got the Tamron 28-80mm lens (and 2 others that I have barely had time to look at). And folks, for the obsessive-about-photos-amateur-photographer like me: it's perfect.
Thank you, honey! You know I will use it. In fact, I have a feeling you might get tired of me using it. And that's okay, because I've got the kids to practice on. :)
