My new-to-me (read: refurbished) Nikon D90 finally arrived last Saturday! I haven’t had a ton of chances to play with it yet. But during the limited amount of time we’ve spent together, it’s very clear that it’s a match made in heaven! I’m so loving having auto-focus on my 50mm 1.8! I keep forgetting it’s there, and I start to reach to focus, then remember, and fall in love all over again! Where have you been all my life, D90?


Anyway, Beth’s challenge to us was to find circles. I found some Christmas ornaments that may or may not have been laying in the front hall waiting for me to take them down to the basement.


Then at dinner, Noah noticed the moon, and we discovered it was a full moon tonight. It’s one of our few nights lately without any clouds.

And finally, our popcorn tubs. I found out at work today that it’s National Popcorn Day! The kitchen was sending bags of popcorn along on patients’ trays today. So I decided it should be added to our dinner plans tonight. We had chili and popcorn. YUM!

(I felt like the retro Mickey pictures called for some retro processing.)

I’m hoping the new camera will help me get back into my groove of taking pictures again. I’ve realized I have very few pictures of the boys this month, which will be problematic come December when I want to make our annual calendar and have no pictures for the month of January!
