It would be wrong of me to call these my "favorite" gifts because I should be thankful for healthy children, a loving family, and a job in this troubled economy. Don't get me wrong; I am thankful for all of those things and many others. But... I LOVE THESE GIFTS, TOO!
Brent bought me a little Canon camera so I could carry it in my purse on excursions with the kids so I can snap pictures without lugging our Nikon around. I had hinted about it for months but decided if he didn't buy it for me, I'd buy one for myself after Christmas. I love how small it is and the neat features like color enhancement and image stabilization. I also love that it is small enough for purse or diaper bag. In fact, I've been carrying it there ever since I got it. The picture quality is pretty good, especially for what I'll use it for.
I have secretly wanted an ipod for a while now but never voiced it out loud until recently. I happened to mention to my sister that I would kinda like to have one but it wasn't a necessity blah, blah, blah. She told "Santa" aka my parents and so I got a big surprise at Christmas this year. I discovered that it makes menial tasks like folding laundry and taking down the Christmas tree much more interesting when I have music right at my fingertips. I think I'll try an audiobook next; I have never been one to listen to books in the car but my limited time these days might make that a better option for "reading" books.
Wow I am a terrible blogger, but read this!
