The one where I figure out how to get pictures off my new camera

I got a new camera for Christmas.
A camera which is capable of many things. 
Things which are still a great mystery to me. 

But guess what! After I located FULL AUTO mode (took only about 25 minutes to find, amongst the many buttons and gizmo-doodads), I took some medium-good pictures. 
Well, good for me.  
Which mama likes. 

And then yesterday, Jake pulled the card outta the camera and plugged it into the Mac, and after that, iphoto just sucked them up. SLLLUURRP! And now, blogger can suck them right outta iphoto, lickety split(ish).

So now, I present you with...

Everything I remembered to take pictures of since Christmas!

Except Vegas. Cause the kids will be home in 14 minutes. 
And there just isn't time.

Christmas morn: big kids with new electric scooters

Little kids. Electric, too. But slower.

After Christmas, we went up to our cabin in Payson. We thought maybe our small desert-dwellers might like a trip to the snow.

We were wrong.

They lasted about 15 minutes, and then they began to wail. We stripped then down to their cold, damp undies, turn the heat on high, and drove down off the Mogollon Rim, back to the cabin.

 Where they did enjoy their trip to the jacuzzi tub.

Uncle Ryan got a cool arcade video game thingy for Christmas. Tom likes it.

We spent a marathon day at the park with my cousins, second cousins, and launched some rockets.

Uncle Rick stopped by to take Tom for a ride on his Harley.

And Grandma Verna Taylor turned 98 on January 9th!

That first picture cracks me up cuz it looks like a summer day...and it's Christmas! I'm jealous of your camera and all the slurping.

My birthday is the 9th, too! But I turned 34. AND my maiden name is Taylor.
Cool camera.

MAN, I want to be grandma Verna and be 98, How awesome is that. Think of all the years yet I'd have to pester my kids!!! Neat camera. Technology overwhelms me though. I got a new (much simpler) camera a few months ago and my son had to show me how to use it. He's starting to tell me about pixels and such----(he is a genius nerd of sorts) and I just said, dude, just "how do I turn it on, and off and take a dang photo" Pixels, What?? Pixels.

I need to get my ruddy camera fixed. My baby's 10 months old now and there's hardly any pictures of her. I console myself that she kinda looks like my first daughter, so if she asks for baby photos in the future, I may just fob her off with the abundance of number one baby pics.

Looks like you had a great time. And Your gran looks pretty good for... 98? Bet she uses Jack LaLanne's juicer.
