My Christmas Gift

My husband got me a camera for Christmas! This year we are going to New York for Christmas so he wanted me to have time to play with it before hand. Took some shots today, not too bad...I think I am getting the hang of it.

Wow you are already a pro at taking pictures! I need more practice Lovely pix of your fids and dogs. So cute seeing your bird peeking out from hair. Have fun in New York and snow! Be safe I used your idea of putting up material with birds on it on the wall with the bird cages. Great idea.

I just got some cloud decals for the area behind Oliver's cage. Is it crazy that I am so excited about them, lol!? They'll show up in some pics soon

Canon elph 330 hs, it allows for you to wirelessly transfer pics/videos from camera to phone (best feature in my opinion).

Not crazy at all!! Clouds, cool idea. The bird material is for me to enjoy as well as protect the wall. I'm going to paint pictures to put up above the material. The room is so cheerful I love it so I bet the birds do too.

There was some deal at best buy when he picked it up but I don't know the price. Less than $175 for sure.

Sorry about the double post above. Forum was being weird.
