New Camera!

Yesterday I got a new camera. I am really excited to learn how to use it. It is quite complicated (for me anyway). I bought a book to explain it better and I have been reading it. Back in college I bought a really nice Minolta camera and took classes on photography and even learned to develop film in a dark room. It is nice that we don't have to do that anymore. Hopefully I can start posting some of my pictures. This is a picture of my new camera with me behind it. I had a bad migraine yesterday so I am glad that we can't see details of my hair and face.

Amy just left for Catilion (the senior dance for the year). Today they had a day activity date where they had a video scavenger hunt.After she went to the Fran Brown Beauty College (only it has a different name now) and had her hair done. It is up in the back with lots of curls. I thought I would post a couple of picture.

Sharla is having twins

Sharla finally made it to the doctor for her first appointment and they found a big surprise: twins! What are the chances of two of your daughters having twins their first time? Daren and I were discussing it last night and wondering why none of their cousins have had twins when we realized that twins run in both of our families. Daren's great grandmother Edna Bingham was a twin and my great grandmother had twins. Maybe with both of us together it increases the chance. Well, we are excited for Sharla and Ben!

My New Blog!

Christie came over to help me set up this blog! We had a great Christmas vacation and everyone is back in school. Scott went back last week. He was able to earn some money helping Dave and Christie frame their basement--Thanks Dave and Christie for making this work! My favorite part of the Christmas season was Christmas Eve. We had the entire family there for pictures in the morning and in the evening we all opened homemade (by me) red pajamas and put them on and took more pictures.
