Merry Christmas, Seasons Greetings, Happy Hannukah, Happy Kwanzaa, Happy Holidays...etc.
However you celebrate! I hope everyone is having a wonderful one! :)

So, I think Santa got tired of all my whining and complaining about my camera over this past year... because holy smokes, he spoiled the bananas out of me :o
I almost fell over when I opened up a box and found a Nikon D5000 staring back at me. (!!!)
I certainly wasn't expecting that, for sure. I'm a very lucky girl to have such a wonderful 'Santa'. ♥

Anyway, the reason I bring this up.... Because now I can take PICTURES!!! Yayayaya!
I'm still learning the camera as I go along, so they aren't perfect. But wow! What an improvement from the little things I do know. I'm seriously in love with it.
Which is good news for this blog! Better camera = Better Pictures = MORE Pictures :D

So to start things off... Here are 'a few' of my practice pictures. I'm in Eastern Ontario for Christmas, and the following characters are residents of my family.

This happy boxcat is my Mom's youngest, Gerry.
What a character this little (ahem, I mean ENORMOUS) kitty is.
I brought him home from the adoption centre about four years ago for my Mom's birthday (much to her surprise ;)), and he's a real funny guy. He's sooo big and sweet and funny. I love him! :)

This butterball is Cleo.
You'll never find a nicer cat than this one. Even though the pictures don't quite do her justice here (trust me, I'll get some more), she is such a sweetcake. And by FAR, the softest fur you have ever touched. She feels like she's part bunny. She's a cuddler and lover... always in the mood for snuggles. :)

This fluffy Persian, Buddy, is my Uncle's kitty.
He's a sweet tempered and loving kitty ...... hehe ;)
Okay, you got me, he's not really a Persian kitty. :P
He's an American Eskimo puppy dog.  But he really is probably the best behaved and sweet dog I've ever known. I'm (obviously) not as much a dog person as I am a cat person (I love ALL animals though, of course.. I just mean as a pet 'owner'), but I would easily have a dog in my home if I was guaranteed that it was as wonderful as this guy.
Oh.. and the FLUFF! He looks like a big dog, but it's just the HAIR! He's awesomely fluffified! :D
He also doubles as a terrific vacuum cleaner for Christmas dinner ;)

And just for fun, more Gerry.
We have an freezing rain storm today and he's in the window watching the icicles dripping.
Love those whiskers.

Aww ♥
Cleo came to join him. Such love :)

That's all for now. I'm thinking I'll finally get out of my jammies and take a walk outside to play with my new camera a bit more. Hope everyone is having a safe, wonderful holiday :) Back soon!
