Greatest thing since sliced bread!

Much to my shock and amazement, I bought a digital camera last night. Diana and I were at Target at 8:30, and I wondered past the camera display case. We were very much lagging behind everyone else and their digital cameras. I don't really know how we have lived this long without one. Especially since I have starting keeping this blog more faithfully, I have really wanted a digital camera. So there in the case was a great camera on clearance. Originally it cost $229, but it was marked down to $114. I asked about it, but was told they didn't have any more. So then I offered to buy the display one and was told that it would be an additional 30% markdown because it didn't come with any of the cords or manuals. Bottom line, I got an 8 pixel camera with video options for $86. I love a good deal and am beyond excited about this development. And the even more exciting part is that my computer has a port that I can put my memory card right into and so I don't even need the cables. Hopefully future posts will be full of wonderful pictures. Here is Diana posing with some of our halloween decorations.

Yes, Lisa that is disapointing. Maybe I can scan in the results when I get them. :P

Jess, the only reason we have any decorations is because we had no school last friday and I needed something to entertain Diana. It was great even Marion was here to get the stuff down from the attic.

My poor Megan and her old mommy. She begs to get decorations down for whatever holiday is next, no matter how far away it is. I'm an old tired fuddy-duddy, and she's an energetic child. I need to remember that and not squelch her creative spirit.
