These were taken with my new camera! They were the perfect subject for getting some still shots in - my new camera is the Canon 40D, and it does some amazing things - now I just have to learn how to use it. I imagine most of todays entry will be showing you some pics I have taken with it.
For those of you that hadn't guessed from the fact that I got flowers and a new camera - it was my birthday last week. Michelle & I were both spoilt rotten with some lovely gifts and being taken out for dinner....thanks guys....we enjoyed it! Here is a pic of the both of us with mum. I had to include mum cause she is after all the one who carried us for 7 months (we were 2 months prem), pushed us out (and found out after delivering me that she was having twins), and then raised us (to be two beautiful, gorgeous women - just like her!) ....hehehe...self praise - don't you love it!?
Ok - enough about that! Here are some pics I took of the kids the other day....
Wow - these new pics are taking ages to download....the first is of Tori screaming for her soo soo (short for soother in Canada, which is a dummy for my Aussie veiwers!). The second is of Tori about 30 seconds after screaming for her soo soo! The third is of Tori running to Matthew after she got in trouble for hitting me (no I will not tolerate being hit by my kids!). The fourth is an edited version of the third, that I like! The fifth is Matthew deciding he wanted to get in the way of the camera which I think is a great photo. The 6th is a typical Sunday morning at our place, Matthew on the playstation, Tori in the back ground playing and watching him playing.....don't you just love the blurred effect?
Well - I was going to add a bit more, but have to have the computer off in 10 minutes as earth hour starts then! This page will probably take ages to download now. Will try to get back on tomorrow to put on some pics of what Ray did yesterday - I imagine that alot of the big boys WILL be envious.
Hope I haven't bored you all too much. Karen a big hello and Happy Birthday to you, hope you had a great day!
Hugs all round...
