This year Cory and I decided to give each other a new camera for Christmas. We went on and ordered it around Thanksgiving so that we could use it for Christmas pictures this year and not feel completely clueless as to how to operate it. So we've had it for about a week now and we love it!! Of course, we are still learning how to use it but so far we think it takes great pics! Please notice the "blurred background" in these pictures. I've been trying to achieve that look with my point and shoot for over a year!
