Bren tried to surprise me with a new camera, the Nikon D70; my new digital SLR. It’s something totally new to me. I’ve been a point and shoot girl all my life, but I was getting bored/frustrated with that.

Brendan, in case you were wondering, is not very good at surprises. He gets so excited that he just can’t keep it in — especially a good one. The other night we were at the store and he spent a little too much time fawning over the DSLRs. He had me hold them and look at them and what not. Then, a couple days later, told me that there would be something coming for me. Kinda gave that one away. He doesn’t like it when I try and surprise him either. I’ve just about given up trying to get him good birthday/Christmas gifts. He can’t stand to wait.

Brendan joined the party on January 2, 2004. He's cool now.

Jessica has never been cool. She is OK with that.
