I LOVED our special Valentine's Date on Saturday evening. It was a much needed break...and although we hate to leave little jaxson, it is simply a must from time to time:)
Jaxson had a blast playing catch and getting spoiled at Jill's house while we enjoyed a night out on the town! We ate a yummy dinner topped off with Cheesecake Factory Cheesecake...YUMMY! (Adams Peanut Butter Fudge Ripple Cheesecake to be exact!) We then enjoyed walking around the little specialty shops at the Old Market. I'm not a fan of getting my picture taken alone...so these are the only two of the evening...UNTIL we picked up little jaxson that is!
This picture is in front of a little modern home decor shop called "Niche".....it had SO SO SO much cute stuff. Jarom, of course, thought it was wierd....ridiculously ugly...and over-priced.....yet he still patiently followed as I walked around and pointed out the lamps, rugs and paintings I would totally buy if I had any money at all! Ha!
The BEST PART of the evening was when Jarom surprised me with my Gift. I have been talking about and begging for and researching like crazy these two different camera's! I wanted a nice camera with Photoshop worse than anything! The Cannon Rebel XTI or the Nikon D40x.....that was the question??? I wasn't sure which I wanted....and I figured that I had a few months to decide because the plan was to save up and get one for my B-day in May.
WELL........He surprised me and wrote me the sweetest letter I have ever hear AND gave me a silver Rebel XTI for Valentine's.....HOLY CRAP WAS I EXCITED! I still am. Mainly because I don't have to stew over which one to get anymore....AND because this camera Rocks! I have taken 250 pictures today alone. Of course, I have no idea how to really run it yet....but I can't wait to learn. I also have no idea how to run any of the Photoshop CS3, In-design, Illustrator, or Adobe Pro software yet...(and I'm pretty sure it will take years for me to learn)....BUT I AM THRILLED to say the least. It was the best gift ever.
I have spent a few hours this afternoon playing around with it....and thought I would share some cute photos of my boys wrestling and little jaxson playing around today! ENJOY~
I HAD NO IDEA PHOTOSHOP HAD SO MANY OPTIONS!
Jaxson giggles and squirms like crazy when Jarom tries to kiss his neck! I think it's ticklish for him!!! I loved these pictures....
I thought this was so cool. I was playing around with the texture options and it makes the photo look like a painting or poster. So fun!
Playing in his crib.....
I love those big eyes.....he has me wrapped around his finger. It's sickening, I promise!
Big boy.....When I see my baby wearing a tie and all ready for church....it sinks in that he is really almost 1. I hate it. But doesn't his little mini tie make your heart melt???
