Get with it Dixon!

Yeah after a title like that and what JUST happened, I really do have to get with it! ARGH!!!!!!!! I was this close the pressing 'post' and with some slight of my finger (NO idea what) I was able to delete my entire post and not even have it in the draft section! Don't ask me...

Today's title has to do with the fact that it has been so long since I last blogged, and when I saw that I mumbled to myself "You better get with it Dixon!" You see, I still am Christina Dixon in my head! You think the Boschmann part would sink in eventually, I mean it's been 4 1/2 years!! Nonetheless, I am me and that's what I mumbled, so...here I am...attempting to get with it!!

Basically this post will be picture-based in hopes to display a sampling of works courtesy of our new camera!!!! Yes, that's right, we finally have a camera from the 21st century!! You see, our other camera was previously my uncles and he purchased it when digital camera first came out, and we got it after he had used it for our wedding, so in techie-years that thing was a dinosaur!! Being that that camera was the only reference I had of digital cameras, I was under the impression that all other digitals (other than SLR's) had a 5-10 second delay once pushing the take-a-picture button (there's gotta be a more technical term for that!) How on earth is a mother supposed to catch any spur-of-the-moment shots with a hindrance like that one?! Anyhow, needless to say, our new beauty has little to no delay and is nicely satisfying our picture-taking pleasures... and then some! This puppy has options coming out of every orifice of its plastic being... many more than I will ever learn about! Even if I do eventually get through the novel that accompanied it!! Man... do those 'how-to' books know how to make me feel like I'm reading Chinese...


So here's a few pictures taken from the keener camera (referred to as such because I feel like a loser-student again, back in SFU when I had to take that dreaded math course! Honestly... reading this camera's hand-book is, to me, like looking in a math text! My eyes glaze over and this haunting voice in my head starts to whisper "HA...you...get this?!" - sorry... total tangent, but that's a sore spot for me, I hate feeling stupid!) Back to the pics...
Kool Kat Kare-bear with her new fairy shades!


Smiley Pants enjoying some rays!


Karys...proudly showing off the fact that she can jump with her hands in her pocket and hold her baby - three things at a time!!


Miss Avery's favourite way to hold her feet!


And... when I finally found the time to take these creative pictures I was extra excited to have our new camera to take them with!! I had the same creative urge with Karys around this same age...so I was glad to be able to do it with Avery too!!

Holding onto Mummy!

Looking this cute sure is tiring!!

And my personal favourite...


So that's it for now!! I have to go and figure out how I am going to deal with our Little Miss who figures it's okay to tell her Daddy to "Go away!" hmmmmm...the joys of girls:D I know her spunk will prove to be admirable as she grows up. Right know we're just trying to figure out how to steer it in the right direction!


:*)--Humbly, I admit that my 'lost' post was found...once I scrolled down the page... did I mention I hate feeling stupid...

Well, you were a Dixon longer than you've been a Boschmann, and we all make mistakes, so take it easy :)

LOVE the pictures. i'm sure that even while you are still 'new' to the camera, it is such a great, no? :)

can't wait to see more and more pics.

Great pics, especially the last ones in black and white. And, ahem... you're not the only one who hates reading camera manuals and has "lost" a thing or two on the computer ;-)
