Weekly Winners - December 28, 2008 - January 3, 2009

I am loving my new camera, as evidenced by the 250+ photos I took this past week of every move my family made. Here are the week's best.

The next two were taken with our Canon point-and-shoot on the date night hubs and I enjoyed on Friday. Actually, date day...his Mom took the boys in the morning and we picked them up Saturday. We went to lunch, then to a movie and met some friends for dinner and drinks. Glorious!

The place had a sixties feel to it - was a GREAT place!

Glad to see you putting that new camera to good use. Only 250 pictures though? Do you need a bigger memory card? :) Excellent work, and I really like the self-portrait of your hands in the ornament.
