It is a good investment, as long as it is ALWAYS out of reach of the kids....otherwise it's a very, VERY expensive flying object...that probably wouldn't fare well on the landings!!

It really is true......good things come to good people . You certainly do deserve this trip. I am sure it is to hard for both you and husband to get away at same time . I am very excited for you both . I do believe I am as excited about the new camera as your husband. I am sure we are all going to be blessed with exciting Christmas pictures of Disneyland during the most wonderful time of the year. If I am correct Daughter bought that same camera -- well probably the one released just before this one .........iT IS A GREAT CAMERA. She does the year book for grandson's school ... well that was her excuse for getting this camera. I think if you ever forget the camera it would get itself to Disneyland and take pictures by itself. Going to give my age away again , but 40 something years ago I worked in the photo lab at Weyerhaeuser Co. We had a walk in developing room -- NO DOOR. You entered and left via a half circle with a panel in the middle -- it was painted all black of course. (-- sort of like this but half circle longer on both sides and the dashes would be connected. Revoluntionary for its day. We even had a color drum -- again something only a few private corps owned. I would think Weyer. would be considered large. I really liked working in the photo lab but-------- working in black and white lab was fine but when I had to roll color film-- since it had to be done in 0 light I would fall asleep after 30 mins or so. Good thing is I never got caught as before anyone entered they had to knock and make sure I was done with rolling or developing the color film. I am amazed with how far cameras and printing of the shots taken has come. Big question now is R U in need of someone to carry your bags, get your food, be in charge of traffice control getting from one attraction to another, a girl Saturday? I could be any day of the week girl Friday, Tuesday, Sunday what ever it takes to get back to Disneyland . Kidding aside I am looking forward to the planning, the trip and then the trip report . Your reports make me feel like I am the one traveling . Ok on with the show.

Yea, having read several independant reviews I decided this would be a great camera for all uses and would take portrait quality picture of ALL my children whether at home or at my wife's second (and preferred) home to the south. I had a rather nice darkroom right after high school with a large color enlarger (though I didn't do much color due to the narrow temperature window with color) and owned an Olympus OM-1 (the original) with several lenses. I left the camera with my parents and my brother "borrowed" the lenses to use with his Olympus D-SLR. Again, several of the Nikon's features hooked me and made me want it over either Olympus or Canon. Now to become proficient with it before our spring trip.

The IRS had better not disappoint you this time. I wonder if they have to pay you interest on the claim from time of first filing? Wouldn't that be nice . A wonderful please forgive me gift from the IRS . The do pay great interest to .

I have been here -- just lurking.

I like the PPH better then DLH.

I just thought ......You are going to be so busy before your Holiday trip. Moving is such a pain. I have lived in this house for 24 years and then 10 years in house before. I hope you find the perfect home and get moved super fast.

Dad to 7: being just out of high school and having your own photo lab is very impressive. It is wonderful how the cameras now are print ready---well the shots are . Funny how in the old days you would take such a long time getting lighting perfect for maybe 3-5 shots. Now you can take 100 and pick the one you like best, no muss no fuss.

I will be reading and enjoying all the planning.

We are getting interest!! When I called to find out when we were getting the check, the guy told me it was being mailed out on the 21st (yesterday)......so it just made me nervous when I received a letter on the 21st saying to expect the check in 2-3 wks!! I hope that guy read the computer screen right......we're totally depending on it showing up Monday......the utilities are tired of "dealing" with me.....heavy sigh

I LVE the PPH!!!! I thought it was so cheery & the staff was amazing.....more so than the other 2 hotels.

Patty meet my hubby Mike......Mike meet Patty!!

Ahh yes, old time photography, a good light meter and exposure bracketing then waiting until you developed the film to see if you suceeded. If not...too bad. and i had two occasions were the film failed to advance in my camera so no pics at all (and no way to replace them). With digital we see what we get as soon as we take it and can re-shoot as needed. Plus on our trip last summer (2010) we took over 4000 pics of DLR. That would have been like 200 rolls of film, ugh. I wish I had a digital when we went to Hawai'i in 2003. We got soom good pics but would have loved to just shoot without worrying about running out of film. Laurie takes amazing pics with her little point and shoot Canon (check her TPs ) so hope to really wow folks with the spring trip. We'll let Laurie get back to her trip planning now

Mike/Laurie LOVE the camera. I have had a bunch of different point and shoot digitals over the last 10 or so years and while they are nice and convenient I was finding I just wasn't able to get the shots I wanted like pics of the kids at school performances, you always had to be right up on them or it wouldn't work, or esp sporting events. With my kids in several sports my pics were always sub par. So for me it was also an investment because I felt like having great pics of these events was SO worth it!

I couldn't afford one like you are getting but I get a Nikon D3000. I LOVE it. It doesn't do quite everything I hope like esp the multi shots. For sports that is pretty important and I "thought" it would do that and didn't discover that it didn't till after I bought it

But I have really enjoyed it and it takes GREAT photos. Just wish I had the time to learn more about it cuz I am sure it does more than what I am used to. One thing I have figured out though for low light or pics like firworks you need a tripod to avoid shakes. Perhaps yours will have a setting that avoids this but I know with mine if I try to take one at night or in dark settings they are almost always blurry.

So excited for you guys!

Can't wait to start hearing details and of course seeing your pics when you return!

Still so bummed I am going to miss everyone by a day.

But for us we have to go over a weekend because the girls are already missing 2 days of school.

I REALLY wanted to go over their xmas break but the deals on SW were only till the 14th and good thing that we did it that way because shane's AP expires on the 15th. And yes he is going. We will still do some "family" trips together. He wants to be able to go with the girls so we have agreed as long as we are "getting along" lol that that would be ok.

Hope today goes ok and ((hugs)) and can't wait to hear more!
