1 Day before we left for our trip to Colorado, we received an exciting package in the mail. A new camera. It shouldn't be that exciting since I purchased it and had it overnighted and knew that it was going to be arriving, but as soon as it arrived on our doorstep I ripped it open. For the past 3 months we have been living without a DSLR camera because ours bit the dust. We still aren't exactly sure what happened to it, but we do know that we are well past the 100,000 pictures it is rated for. That camera has been well loved. So after I realized that our summer had hardly been documented, I bit the bullet and shelled out the money for a new camera. Of course I would wait till right before a vacation, and have to pay an additional $40 to have it overnighted.... but if you saw our Colorado pictures then I would say it was worth it.
But back to the day I tore the camera out of the package... As soon as I had it in my hands I knew I wanted to try it out. I snapped on the macro lens (which I haven't used in about 2 years) and started snapping away. Both kids were sound asleep, so I figured I would take some pictures of our home.
It wasn't until then that fog cleared my eyes and I realized our house was a disaster. It was 3pm, and our house was a total wreck. Funny I didn't even realize I was living in a pig pen till I wanted some pictures....
So instead of tidying the house I figured I would take pictures of the disaster in it's full glory. Because more often then not, this is what our house looks like on a daily basis. My mother would be appalled... sorry mom!
So here it. Our beautiful mess.

And as I was snapping the final pictures, the two littles both started stirring. As I pulled Harrison out of his crib I realized he still had chocolate on his face from lunch. Whoops. And of course "grandma jan's" blankie had to be photographed too.
