12 Days of Christmas Blog Challenge- Day 3



Again we're just totally blown away with the response we're getting with this blog challenge, You gals are amazing!

Now we're on to day 3 of the challenge: Most meaningful gift/best gift you've received. This one is pretty easy for me, my camera! I decided last year that I wanted to start saving up for a new camera for myself. I didn't want to just use the money from our account, I thought Gerrad wouldn't appreciate that much, ha! I would save money, and then I'd end up spending it on the girls (story of my life). My dad decided for Christmas that he was just going to purchase the camera for me because he knew I would never do it myself (he obviously knows me too well). I absolutely LOVE having  a semi-professional grade camera to be able to take photos of my girls. Its nice to save a few hundred dollars a few times a year and take their photos myself! No sitting/session fee, no expensive photo prints, I just take the girls out and snap to my little hearts content!

I have a lot of meaningful gifts that I've received from Gerrad as well. He goes in stages of buying me jewelry which I love. Last year for mothers day he bought me an 'open heart' charm/Tiffany's style bracelet that I absolutely LOVE. I rarely take it off, it has definitely become one of my favorite pieces of jewelry.

**** NO BLOG CHALLENGE ON Thanksgiving! ****
Day 4 will pick back up on November 26th!!

Speaking of photos... I'll post some photos from our Christmas card photo shoot later today :)

I asked for a camera for Christmas this year! It's really all I want! I loooove photo taking ... but I never upload them because the quality sucks! Hopefully if I get one, that will change!

I am especially thankful for the gift of you and our friendship this year. Never in a million years would I have imagines, or thought possible that you could become close and wonderful friends with someone you met 'on the internet.' But BS to that! I adore you and value you more than you know! Have a happy and blessed Thanksgiving with your family. :)

You have good taste in your camera. I work in the Photo Lab at Wal-Mart and I want that camera also. I have always had a deep LOVE for photos even ones that are not ones I took. Take my word for it but every shot you take will be a treasure later on so keep your camera with you always and shoot away. This is from an older grandma known at work as Momma Lyn. I don't have a blog yet, but I am in the challenge by posting in Following The Footsteps comment area. THANKS FOR THE IDEAS. HAVE A GRATE THANKSGIVING and CHRISTMAS.
