New Camera!!

My parents gave each of their 5 children a brand new camera for Christmas. Mine came on Tuesday and I was SOOOO EXCITED when I opened it!!! We didn't all get the exact same camera but we all got very nice ones. My camera is a Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi. My old camera had 2.4 megapixels, my new one has 10.10 and WOW what a difference! I have been so busy the past two days though that I haven't had a chance to really play with it. Today is a different story. I've been taking pictures of everything trying out all the features and I've been having a blast!! Below is a close-up picture of some ornaments on our tree and then some pics of my two new nativity sets for this year. You can see some of my other nativity sets here and here.

This picture just shows some of the nativity set that Joseph's sister and mother painted. Aren't they just precious? His mom and sister made 7 sets of these, one for each married sibling, and one to keep. That's a lot of work!
This nativity was given to me by some dear friends back in Fallon. They came up last Saturday to visit us and see Ira. We hadn't seen them for over a year and it was so nice to sit and visit and relax after our hectic morning with Sara's birthday party. They remembered that I collect nativity sets and so brought this one for me.
