Are we SURE it's February?!?!?

These temps are just crazy!!!







Don't get me wrong, I LOVE this weather!! Not humid, beautiful breeze. But it's February!! The skies are so breathtaking:





I'm just worried with this weather so early we're going to get hammered with snow and cold weather!! Ahh well, just enjoy each and every day!

I finally broke down and "splurged" on a good camera for myself. I am such a picture junkie and even though my phone takes decent pics, I wanted a good digital camera. There was a camera I had been wanting for quite awhile, the Canon SX530. I know there are lots of better cameras out there, but i'm still learning with taking pictures and didn't want anything to "fancy". lol  I almost put the camera I wanted on layaway this past Christmas but with money tight I wanted to obviously focus on the boys and not something frivolous for myself. Heck, i'm still talking about the shoes I finally broke down and got and as Tyler keeps reminding me, "They were only $15 mom, you DESERVE them and more!!!" (love that boy beyond words) But, i've now rambled. Last month I did a google search and saw the camera I wanted for more than half off!! Granted it is refurbished, but it came with a warranty and was coming from Canon so I bit the bullet. I can not put into words how much I LOVE this camera!!!!!!!! I mean true, deep down love!!!! I still have SO much to learn, but it is amazing!!! The 50x zoom just blows me away. I've always had the small point and shoot cameras, which I loved, but this is just....WOW!!! I've gotten so many amazing photos with that zoom. And I know there are tons of camera out there that zoom way more than 50, but this is perfect for me! Here are a few moon shots......








I can't wait to learn more about this camera and take even better photos!!!!!  photo Smiley-takingpicture.gifc200_zps4hp156f5.gif
