Merry Christmas

I'm off having celebrating Christmas Eve at my mother-in-law's house.  I'm looking forward to the big dinner and exchanging presents with her.  We'll celebrate Christmas Day with my extended family, but we already enjoyed our holiday cheer with my parents and brother.  We combined his 28th birthday with it, last Sunday. 

ER had a wonderful day, she loved seeing the my brother's childhood train set up in their living room.  She also got really spoiled with a full stocking and lots of princess themed goodies, games, puzzles, play clothes, and a big new Littlest Pet Shop Cozy Care Adoption Center. 

My Dad and brother who are gadget fans both got Blue Ray players, now they can finally watch the Blue Ray movies they've already started collecting!  We gave my mom a cute pair of earrings she picked out way back when we went out for her birthday last summer.  Everyone got a new photo calendar, my favorites are from Shutterfly for photo quality and design choices.  We also gave my mom and brother photo mugs to drink their morning coffee out of.

Everyone managed to keep a secret from me and boy was I shocked to get a new camera!  I wondered what they had up their sleeves when no one asked for any ideas and everyone said they were all done shopping for me.  The Nikon Coolpix P80 is a huge step up from my Olympus.  It's got 10.1 mega pixels versus 4.0 and has 18X zoom so I can get in really close.  I can't wait to play with my new toy more!  My mom also knitted me the cute pink cosmetic bag, I'm holding below.
Digital Credits: All the digital frames are from Design's by Dani's blog Girl Talk.  They had a fabulous 12 Days of Christmas promotion, with new freebies each day and these cluster frames were part of it.  Aren't the cute?  I had fun practicing my PS Elements skills, as I added my pictures.

Merry Christmas! We had to get a died in October...we finally decided on a canon powershot sx120...great camera, great price and a consumer report best buy. But it would have been more fun to be surprised! I'm glad they found exactly what you would love.

I forgot to say that the coolpix p80 was one I really liked too.
