New Camera and a Visit to Lights of Life

Today David surprised me with an early Christmas gift.
It's a Canon EOS T5i! So I was pretty happy!
I have a lot to learn with this camera. It can do much more, and I want to be able to take great photos.

The following photos are from our visit to Lights of Life at Life College with the new camera.

Juju absolutely loved the bunny. So cute.

A little nibble on my shirt. Don't mind if I do!

Matthew happy to hold the rooster.
I made a friend!

Pony ride!
Matthew is such a big boy!

Lovely lights.
Little elves.
Mmmm. Snowmen doughnuts.

Seeing Santa!

David's Parents' church hosted a breakfast with Santa this morning.
This year really was so much fun with the kids.
They are really getting into the fun, and it is so cute to see them excited!
We got there early, and ate breakfast with the grandparents.
Then we started the festivities.
They can be soo cute sometimes!

Waiting in line for Santa, and getting really excited!

Trying hard to be patient!

Christmas Decor 2013

I finally got around to decorating, AND taking pictures of our Christmas decor.
I never have a particular plan when putting it all out, so every year is a little different.

Goodwill Goodies

I had seen somewhere that a near-by Goodwill had some really great stuff.
I don't typically shop Goodwill, but thought I would try it out.
So once I picked up the kids from preschool we headed out to the Perimeter Mall Goodwill location.
If I didn't have the kids with me, I could have been more thorough in my search.
Everyone who worked there was nice, and everything was well organized.
Here are a few of the finds.
All of the kids clothes are just under 3 bucks.
Not bad!

Janie and Jack polo for my nephew. Gap jeans, Lacoste polo, and Gap PJ's.

Crewcuts shirt, Lilly Pulitzer shirt, 2 Gymboree shirts, and a Ralph Lauren skort.
I think the kids got some good stuff. I will have to go back!
