1st the Camera. I didn't get what I really wanted, a Canon Rebel Xsi. 1) because we didn't have the money anymore after Joe totaled his car and 2) I had a zoom lens from a previous camera (a camera I bought when I wanted to be a photographer back in the day but realized you needed some talent) It was a 35mm Minolta. Joe's co-worker told us our zoom lens was compatible with the Sony model so we bought the Sony Alpha will save us a few hundred dollars on buying a good zoom lens since we already had here is the camera we bought:

Now onto my bug. Olivia. She is getting so big and mature...she is so much fun to hang out with. She comes up with such good ideas. The other day she suggested we make paper dolls. So today we went to AC Moore and walked around picking out paper and yarn. Olivia proceeds to tell me "No more stopping, we need to go right home and make our dolls"....she knows me so well, LOL! So we drove home and got to work. Here is our finished product:

Olivia is also doing really well with writing her name. She started off writing her letters all different sizes and all over the paper but has since started writing much better on the lines and in proportion to each other. Here is a recent writing:

She is such a cutie! I had so much fun with her the other day. Her imagination is wild! She took my map out and gave me directions on how to get back to work. She told me that Will had a whistle directing the trucks at the big hole. I also could not take the other road because of all the ants and spiders.
