So this summer has flown by and I realized I have been neglecting my blog only because I don't have a decent camera! Many of you have been able to see some pictures thanks to my sisters camera, but all of the blurry ones are from a camera/video camera combo. So here is a little history on the cameras in our family:

-Reggie bought me my first digital pocket camera when we were dating in December of '04. Since Maggie has been born.. the camera has gone to crap because Reggie used it for work. We were able to replace it but it takes like 5 years to take a picture, so by the time the picture is actually taken its blurry cuz the kids have moved, and it just doesnt work any more.
-Camera 2 was purchased by Reggie again (another point and shoot.) A red one to be exact. That camera has also been used for work. And that camera still is a piece of crap.
-For my birthday on '08 Reggie purchased a video camera. It works GREAT for video taping, but the pictures are crap. Its not even worth posting a picture cuz you cant even tell who is in it.
-I for sure though Christmas of '08 was my year to get an awesome camera.. dont care what brand, just as long as it was a big and nice one and when you clicked to take the picture it would immediately take it. When Christmas morning came I watched Reggie open presents and I didnt open a single present (don't worry, reggie has gotten enough crap for that Christmas, valentines, and Mothers day. Lets hope he has learned his lesson.) So later Christmas morning Reggie proceeds to tell me that store did not have to camera and it is being shipped so it should be here in the next week. Well I hate to tell you Reggie, but you either lied or the post office lost it! Still aint here!!!!!!!!

Well of course when I bug Reggie about getting a camera, he blames ME for all the camera problems.

Will you PLEASE tell him that a video camera is not a camera? And the RED camera was purchased for work??? I think I will have a much cuter blog and everyone will be able to see my 2 beautiful girls!!! Maybe ill even digi scrap!

Mine's just a point and shoot, but I REALLY like it. It's a sony...cybershot I think?? I noticed Kate Gosselin has the same one =). Not too pricey (under $200) and so easy to work with. There's a setting where it takes pics quicker than usual.

we bought our camera at costco, its a casio exilim, it does pictures AND video and I love love love it!!
We also just bought nice nice camera, a Nikon, but thats for like heavy duty stuff (it was like $1000) so we returned it and got something inbetween, a Sony cyber shot...i LOVE it so much.
Look into them :) (but ours wasn't under $200, it was about $500 but we got the newest one...its the DSC-HX1 ???

Seriously the best cameras are Nikons or Canons. You don't need their expensive fancy ones, their low models are awesome! I loved the ease of use when I picked up the Nikon 60D. I have a Canon 40D, and it is way too much camera for me. So I would start with a lower model and you can always by better lenses later. You will never be sorry if you buy a dSLR camera. There is so much you can do with it besides point and shoot! Tell your husband you are missing so many memories of your children's early years.

Definitely need to see more pictures of those cute girls! My camera takes about 10 seconds to take a picture too, and a long for a nice one to fulfill my photography skills! And don't feel bad... two years ago for my birthday I asked for Kyle to install cabinets and a counter top in my laundry room, I got dinner... still waiting on the laundry room, maybe I will get it when you get your camera, then you can take a picture of it :)
