I've been good!

I must have been a very good girl this past year,
cause Santa was very good to me!
First of all, as you all know I got a new computer!
I was very excited about that
and thought that was my Christmas gift!
No, he wasn't finished yet!
Then he surprised me with a new camera!
I've only had camera envy for about 3 years now!
I got a Nikon D3100 with a 18-55 lens.
There was an added bonus of a 55-300 zoom lens!
I couldn't believe my eyes!
Then instant fear set in,
what if I can't even figure out how to use this thing!
You know just like the computer! LOL!
It's hard to teach an OLD dog new tricks!
But wait, that's not all,
I got a huge bottle of Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel!
Mind you this is step up from what I usually get from
Craigsmith, which is nothing!
He did say this would include my Birthday as well,
but that's perfectly fine with me!

So! I've been playing around with my new camera!
So far I love it!
I've only taken pictures in Auto mode,
but my mother in-law ordered me a book for dummies!

The clarity of this camera is amazing!

These first two doll pictures are a little blurry.
But the next two look a little better!
I had taken so many pictures my arms started to get weak
and it was very hard to keep the camera from shaking! 

I'm linking up to
Get on over there and check out all the wonderful blogs!

MERRY CHRISTMAS to you Theresa....WOW was your Santa GENEROUS.... :o) !!

You're gonna have so much fun learning how to use your camera....Mind you, the pics you've taken so far are so crisp.... ** sigh ** ....I'm STILL suffering from camera envy though, just the other day I started experimenting with my Sony point & shoot & am likin' the results so I guess I can get through another year....hahahahaha....!!

Cheers for now from Oz,
