Happy Mother's Day! (a little late)

Or as Kellie says "Happy Mudder's Day!"

I hope you had a great weekend. I surely did! Dearest Love gave me a new camera...

It's a digital SLR Canon EOS Rebel XTI with some xtra lenses (EF 75 - 300mm, EF 50mm, and EF-S 60mm), and a tripod. Jason gave me a digital photo frame and Molly gave me a camera case! Wow! What a day!

Kellie and Ryan gave me tulips that are really pretty. (I love tulips)

So I was playing around with the camera -- need to read the book I bought from Barnes & Noble so that I can understand this thing!

Today I'm going to work on this little picture.
I'm doing a series Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter. So far I've only finished Winter. This will be Spring. I "painted" the base fabric with blue and green water soluble crayons. Now I'm trying to decide if I want her dress to be felt or fabric. I also have to do school work today because I completely blew it off for the entire weekend so now I have to cram.

Ryan is feeling much, much better...

All the swelling is gone and most of the Poison Ivy is gone. Mark on the other hand looks like a leper!

On another note, Chris, I hope you and your family (and friends) are okay with all that bad weather! I'm thinking of you today.

Oh surely you didn't mean little old me!!? You're so kind. We all made it through ok, although a lot of stuff got blown around. My neighbor's trampoline, for instance. :)

And CONGRATS on the new camera. It's FUN FUN. Enjoy figuring it out. I still have no idea what I'm doing. xo
