Ice on barn roof yesterday..... still too dark today to see it today...

My granddaughter, Alex, has just become the Sports Editor for Gabrielino High's school paper ... Congratulations Jelly Bean!!!!♥♥ I love and am so proud of you!!!
She was also caught on film being her mom's chauffeur!
.... and Jack is our "Little Drummer Boy" for Gabrielino's band...♥♥  Love you and so proud or you too, Doodle Bug!!!

Here is my new camera... Brian got it for me.
It feels twice as heavy as my other Canon Rebel XT... but after weighing them both the new one is only ¾ of a pound heavier. My old one is 2¾ pounds and the new one is 3½ pounds. But soooooo awesome taking pictures in low light~!

The viewing screen on the back is twice the size of my old one.

I still have a lot more to learn about it. I ordered and extra battery yesterday from Amazon. Cheaper than from Canon.


Dinner last night was quick. Had some thawed out ground beef in the fridge, added to it lots of garlic/onion/red pepper... a jar of my marinara sauce, and some baby spinach. When all done, stirred in cooked angel hair. OMGood!!!

Thanks Bri, this camera takes MUCH BETTER pictures!!!!
