Wednesday, I turned 32 years old. It's been a good year that's challenged me and brought us growth. I thought about writing something like I did last year, about my life in general, but I'm just not feeling in a writing mood right now.

So instead, can I just tell you how excited I am about my combination birthday and Christmas present? It's an awesome digital SLR with two lenses, a nifty case, and tons of cool features I haven't figured out how to work yet. I have had a few moments to play with it, however, and I love that even basic snapshots are turning out SO much better.

It does great in low light situations, where my old camera's flash would ruin the picture:

It does great outdoors:

It takes pictures right away with no lag time, so I can capture fun moments like this:

I'm so excited to learn more about it!

(edited to add: This evening, it even helped me take some pictures of our elusive neighbors:)

Happy Birthday!! - I'm a couple days behind you. Tomorrow's the primary program, so I get a husband sitting in the same pew as me for a birthday present. Yeah!! Somehow, having 5 kids makes turning 32 feel pretty young! (I bet 7 feels even better!)
