Christmas Pictures

Anthony made out like a bandit with the Christmas gifts. The most annoying part was that everyone seemed to pick out better gifts for him than I did. He hardly plays with the ones I got him, he's too busy playing with the more fun gifts everyone else got him.


He really seems to like cousin Kristen's cat too. Luckily the cat is a good sport about it.
Tony was so happy, he didn't care if he had gifts or not.
I made a slide show with more pictures, but can't seem to get it onto the blog, but if you want to see more, you can go HERE to see it.

Today we were walking downtown past this old brick building and I thought it would make a good spot to try out my new Nikon D90 I got for Christmas. It was nice that the weather was warm enough to not need a coat. After weeks of snow and ice it got up to 61 degrees today. It almost felt like Spring.

While they aren't as good as professional pictures, I still really like them. My goal is to learn how to take pictures that are as good as professional ones, and then I will save myself a ton of money.

Those pictures are adorable! What a cute hat! I like it when his ears stick out the best. Reminds me of an old fashioned little rascal.

I love those pictures too! Were they in Chicago or here?

Tony looks like he had a great Christmas! And I am jealous, that is a nice camera. I have been playing with my D40X for a few months, and I have come to the conclusion that I will never be a professional photographer. But it is fun to try!

Lori, you are going to have to take a LOT of pictures (in lieu of professional) to save any money. You got a REALLY nice camera. I'm so jealous. I really want one too now, but I might have to settle for a little bit subpar one.

I really love the up close pic with Tony wearing the hat! So cute! I love my Nikon... they didn't have the 90 out when I got mine! Rob bought mine with the understanding that I would take the pics instead of a professional... I'm ok with that! Max poses better for me than a stranger!

Wow, he's all set! I LOVE his green striped pajamas!

Great pictures! I love looking at your blog, it makes me use your tools on mine. I hope you don't mind. How do you like the camera? We bought ourselves the Canon equivalent of your NIkon one and so far it is great. Quite complex compared to what we did have.
