After four kids, ten moves and nearly two decades, we are still blissfully in love (most of the time) and I found myself back in the state I was born and raised in. It has definitely been a journey. In fact, on our 18th anniversary we pulled the last of our stuff up over the pass and into Montana, leaving our surprise love, Idaho, behind. But Montana is a great place. The last best place according to some. And we fully intend to explore as much of it as we can! Join us on our continued adventure through life, love and other stuff that comes with it.

New Camera in the house!

Seems that every time I'm fixin' to have a baby, my camera decides that it just can't live another day.  This baby is no exception.  And while I admit that I mourn at the death of my old camera, getting a new camera is always kind of fun.  And one more step closer to being ready for a baby to come.

But, it's also stressful because I'm always on a budget and with a baby coming any day, I'm feeling some pressure to make a decisions. 

Plus, what if I buy from one of those places that takes your money and sends you a piece of crap or nothing at all??? 

And I certainly didn't have the time or the energy to drive TO town (over an hour) and then all over town looking for the best deal while nine months pregnant with three kids in tow.  No, I won't take the husband because that just makes it even more stressful.  Yes, I love him.  And that's why he can't come.
I did eventually buy this one online.  And from a place recommended by a couple of friends who are much more into the whole photography thing than I am.  You know the folks who aren't "professional" but have those big fancy cameras with a bunch of bells and whistles and they at least seem to know what they are doing. 

Me, I'm a point and shoot girl.  And this time my camera is pink.  So, I give you here a few of the very first pictures taken with my new camera--which by the way is also "refurbished" which means that I saved some bucks there, too. 

I think she's cute, in spite of her hair.  Yes, her hair always looks like that.  No matter what I do.  Wash, condition, brush, cute little rubber bands or bows.  She just doesn't go for it.  And neither does her hair.

And her sisters would have been included in this post if they had been in the house.  Not outside doing manual labor by order of their father after a little lying episode last night.  Hauling wood might just do them in in the whole lying department.  Hauling wood in the heat of the day no less.  It's times like this that I think that wood heat is the way to go.  But I digress. 

In short, I am liking my camera--even though I've only taken five pictures with it.  My little Canon PowerShot A1100IS is just what I think I need.  And bonus that it was a deal AND pink. 

Probably means we're having a boy.  And maybe this also means I'll never need a new camera again. 

It's a good theory.

Heidi, I'm glad to be a follower of your new blog. I enjoyed your old one and I like this one, too. I like your style of writing--sincere yet humorous. I like following along with what's happening in your life.

I am very relieved that you are not moving, just moving your blog. Even I do not want to go through another move with you!

Blessings to you and your family,
Carol Krajcar
