My precious

So yesterday was Mother's Day as some of you may have heard. And I spent yesterday and today reading all your posts about breakfast in bed, a day free from children, family picnics, husband's doing dishes, handmade cards, etc. My day contained not one of those things. No flowers, no card, nada. My husband left the house at 8 a.m. yesterday for work and should be arriving home in about 30 minutes. Poor guy had to work all day, sleep in his truck (its a 24/7 type job), and work all day today so I will give him some credit on that. All to make extra cash so I can stay home with my darling toddler.

I did take Bear to church and then drove myself through Jack in the Box for my big Mother's Day meal. But today my husband redeemed himself. He got me (well I picked it out and paid for it) the greatest Mother's Day gift I could have asked for. The Sony Alpha DSLRA300X 10.2MP Digital SLR Camera.

SQUEE!!!!!!!!!


(I stole the picture from the Amazon website because the camera won't be here till Wednesday or Thursday)

I am so excited. I appreciate all your suggestion which I took into consideration and it was a tough call between the Sony Alpha and the Cannon Rebel but after reading Amalah's review as an owner of both cameras I decided to go with the Sony. I am so excited. My husband is now totally redeemed. This is the greatest Mother's Day/Anniversary gift EVAH!

Am drooling with envy over that gift of yours...

Awesome. I looked at those when we were looking for our new camera, but decided I didn't have the time to learn to use it properly...if only I had an extra 5 or 6 hours in the day...I'd probably fill it and then want another 5 or 6 hours.
