It was a Merry one!

Clint and I spent Christmas Eve and Christmas day with his family this year. After a morning full of present opening we stuffed ourselves with a wonderful meal. It was great! (Especially getting to play with our sweet little Ryann!) I missed being in Jackson and spending the day with my family there. But, we will be seeing my mom's family this weekend. I know I say this often, but we are truly so blessed to have such a wonderful family.

I wanted to share with everyone my Christmas gift from Clint. I'm still very excited about my new digital Nikon D40 camera. He also got me an extra lens, carrying case and photo printer. I was so shocked because even though I asked for a new camera (I just wanted a simple SLR) I had no idea he would get this nice of one for me and all the extras! Of course he stumbled on a great deal b/c you know we aren't that frivilous!! Ha! The blogging world will also benefit from this gift because as soon as I load the software I will be posting pictures I have taken with it!
I'm also including a picture of his gift from me: Boss twin pedal looping station...and unless you are a musician you probably have no clue what this is, I know I didn't! But it's a really cool machine that allows him to record a sound (vocal or instrumental) and it continues to play it over and over again (loop) while he plays over it. I like to think of it as a "one man band." I heard Howie Day in concert using one of these and it was very neat.
Love it!!
Simple machine but so cool!
Another favorite: GPS system from Joe and Lo--no more internet directions for us!
