I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas...

This is what has been happening here for the last several days...

I just got a new lens for my camera. I wanted a good portrait lens, so I got a 50mm/1.8. I'm not quite used to it yet. So the snow pictures didn't turn out quite like I wanted them to.

My son is loving it. I kinda miss him having school. I'm having a terrible time getting things done with him home. Good thing I already love him so much.

I would have taken more shots, but I was cold and didn't have shoes on. This is as far out as I got. It's our still not shoveled front porch.

I have been keeping myself busy getting ready for our new baby.

Yes! We are getting a baby girl. She is due 1-5-09, but will probably arrive early. The best part, okay the best is that we are actually getting a daughter, but the second best part is that we get to go to Arizona in the middle of winter to get her. You can't beat that.

As with any adoption it isn't certain until the judge signs that she is ours, but it's looking pretty good. Keep checking back because I'll post pictures here as soon as I can.

I'm so late in catching up on blogs but I just read here that you also got the 50mm 1.8 lens! Yippee! That is the lens that stays on my camera ALL the time now. I love how I can take more pictures inside without using the dreaded flash! I have a learned a few things (just through experience on a few shoots) about how to work that lens over the past couple of months so next MOPS we should share some of our tips!
