The new Camera

So Danny and I aren't really with it when it comes to electronics. We have a 6 year old TV (no flat screens here) we don't have any smart phones and no video games of any sort. But there is one thing we have talked about for a long time that we could both enjoy and it was a nice camera. So I didn't know we were getting one and Danny surprised me for Christmas and I was super excited!!!

At first I didn't know how much of a difference it would make but it totally does!! the color and lighting is soo much better and the pictures are so much more clear and crisp looking. Absolutely love it! Danny has done exstensive research about which one to get. He even got an app for his ipod that tells him how to use it. He knew how to use the camera and which buttons to push to do what before the camera even came. This is more of a gift for him to start a new hobby....but i'm definitly benefitting from it :) be prepared for lots of pics.

She just got caught getting into things she shouldn't have....uh oh is what she's sayin right now.

I love the faces this girl pulls. and I love I can finally get some of them on camera. Don't mind the constant crazy hair thought....She has sooo much!! and these were taken right after nap

Christ mas

Danny had to work Christmas Day this year :( So we decided to celebrate Christmas Eve and Christmas Day on Friday and Saturday. It worked out great. After loading all these pictures I'm bummed our nice camera didn't come till after Christmas becuase these pictures would have turned out a whole lot better! but you get the idea....For Christmas Eve dinner we had rolls, baked potatoes, steamed veggies and some marinated/grilled sitka blacktail deer that Danny had killed while in Alaska. It was deeelish! Blacktail tastes much better than mule deer.

Opening our Christmas Eve presents...

On Christmas Day Ashlynn first opened a little stuffed kitten and after she got that she didn't want to open anything else. She was so happy with that kitten her day was made. But after some coaxing by mom she opened her toy stroller and was even more excited. She loves to push it everywhere around the house and put her toys in it and push it around.

So she has a step aunt who makes those flower bows. Well she totally went crazy and gave Ashlynn a TON of flower bows. I don't even know what to do with them all. So i decided to put them all in at once. It kind of looked like on of those flowering sancronized swimming caps. It made me laugh :)

Sweaters for mom! yay. don't mind the wet hair....

Ashlynns head of flowers. so funny

Oh what fun...

Here are a few pics of what we've been up to that last few weeks. I finally figured out how to use picasa so here are some collages for your enjoyment :).

We went hunting....but didn't get anything

We got a reeeallly tall Christmas tree. It was quite the process getting this guy. It had snowed about 3 feet a few days earlier so lets just say it wasn't easy......and I definitly was not prepared with my clothes. As you can see my jeans are soaked up to my thighs and i didn't wear any long johns underneath... can you say numb legs??

We traveled up to Heber for an early christmas with the inlaws.

Opened some early presents

Met Santa for the first time. Danny has an Uncle who seriously looks just like him...he grows out his beard and everything all year so he can play santa. Then he goes around circleville and Junction and goes to every single house to say Merry Christmas. Ashlynn did well. She wasn't too scared, just weirded out probably becuase she had been playing with Toby (Santa) before he had gotten all dressed up. And I just realized I have the same picture twice...but i'm not going to fix it.
