"O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!" She chortled in her joy...

I have no idea why I say that when I'm happy, but I frequently do. (yes, you can say it, I don't mind, I already know I'm on the weird side of normal)

Why am I so happy?

I'm just getting acquainted with it, but so far I'm madly in love with it. It does this strange thing called "taking pictures that are actually in focus when the flash is used."
Crazy, right?
Here's Lilli! She looks totally disgruntled at the brightness of my flash while she's trying to take a bath, but look! She's totally clear!
Look at Elizabeth! Look at the individual strands of partially wet hair!

And look! You can totally see what she had for dinner tonight, almost to the detail of each tiny leaf on the broccoli trees! I realize in retrospect that in this picture she looks like she's about to throw up if we make her eat her broccoli, but she really does love it, and these pieces went right down the hatch 30 seconds later. I picked this picture to post tonight simply to demonstrate that this camera has the red eye removal built in. All three ladies of the house have demon eyes when a flash is involved and this will save me quite a bit of time on Snapfish!

I know, that for those of you who have been blessed with cameras that capture your little darlings the way you want them captured for years, this is no big deal. But I'm sure if you went back through my archives you could see just how long I've been complaining about mine. Too many moments lost to blur or a cruddy flash or slow shutter speed or lack of clarity. But not any more!

I promise that I didn't kill my camera on purpose, but is it wrong of me to be kind of glad it's dead?

I just keep remembering Alice in Wonderland. "Callooh, callay, come run away, we're cabbages and kings!"
Nice pictures with that gorgeous camera!
