I'm exploding with excitement

I can't believe it's happening to me but for my birthday my husband, sons, sister and her husband, my parents and brother and my in-laws all got together and got me my digital camera. I received my Canon Rebel XS tonight instead of tomorrow on my actual birthday. My mother blew it and I figured that something was up. Poor hubby worked so hard to keep it from me. I must hand it to him as I had no idea until my mother said that she gave Steve the rest of my gift which was money. I thought what the heck is he up to then it hit me like a ton of bricks. It must be my camera. Well, as he got into the car I asked him if he knew anything about my mother giving him money. He said he didn't and I came right out and asked him if he got they all got me my camera and he started laughing a fake nervous laugh. I knew I had hit the nail on the head. So of course I was going to drive him nuts until I got it. So he buckled and I opened my card and when I read that I would "snap" over my gift I knew it was what I had figured out (with the help of mum of course). I opened it in record time and cried since this is truly what I wanted a better camera to take pictures of my family and friends.

Here's a picture of the camera body. I also got the 18-55mm lens.

Thank you to my wonderful husband, my boys, my parents, my sister and Jay and my in-laws. For you all have made my 32nd birthday a very special one. Now to start buying toys for my camera. A shopping I will go.......see you tomorrow.
