Non-stop action over here!

I'm definitely ready for a breather! We got past Easter and AJ's small little birthday, but this weekend is the big shingdig. The Farm Party!! The kids have been off the wall with excitement this week as Saturday appraoches. I still have oodles of stuff to get done. As of right now, I have 24 kids and 50+ adults! UGH! I know everyone's gonna have a great time, but the preparation to make sure it turns out great is lots! I can't wait till Saturday though. Not only will I be taking lots of pictures (and of course, video) of the little ones with the ponies, feeding the quarter horse and at the petting zoo, but the package we got included a professional photographer who will take between 150-200 pictures! Woohooo!!!

Scott asked me why don't I just enjoy the party then and forget about taking pictures myself. Well, anyone that knows me well knows I can't part from my camera. :)

Speaking of cameras, guess who's buying me a brand new Canon Rebel XTi? George Bush!!! Woohoo! You know that rebate that we're all getting back to stimulate the economy? Well, the Bombardiers are making sure that they stimulate the economy. Scott said that he's tired of me whining about my plain 'ole camera, so-o-o-o-o we could get the camera that I have dreamed about! I know...nothing big for some people, but I just love the pictures that I see taken with it. I might even go as far as taking a photography class on Saturdays. I'm so excited!!! We should definitely have it before we go on our vacation! (For those of you out there that have this camera, I'd love to hear your thoughts on it and how difficult/easy it is to take great pics with it.)

Ok! So, I've totally digressed. Back to the party. The kids are thrilled and can't wait, neither can we!

Moving on now, guess where my sweetie is taking me on Sunday night? (THANK YOU ADAM FOR BABYSITTING!!!!!!!!!)

We have awesome seats to go see ::DRUMROLL PLEASE::

DEF LEPPARD with special guests: Reo Speedwagon (whose lead singer, Kevin Cronin, happened to be on Don't Forget the Lyrics tonight), and Styxx. Yes, I know. I'm old....they're old. But I love all 3 bands! I'm so excited! I was in high school when these bands were big. Let's not even try and count how many years ago that was!

And lastly, I have some huge praise reports and major milestones to share about Anna Grace!!! But, that definitely deserves it's own post, so check back soon!!!

2nd We went to see Def Leppard last year...They rock hard. GO Tommy Shaw. Do we have to tell people when they were big?haha My babysitter had no idea who they were. UGH!!!!
Have a great time

Ohilda - a Cannon? Just promise me you'll look at the Nikon D40 or D60 before you buy - I just LOVE my D50, shoots fast even at full auto and has more than enough settings to keep me happy! But I'm a real Nikon fan and have been for going on 30 years!

As for music - try www.wgrr.com and listen on line - I'm guessing we're about the same age - it's REAL music!

Great joy - have a ball tomorrow and hug both the birthday kids for us (never mind - just hug everybody!)
