I was wrong earlier when I said my new camera was my best present ever. It is nice but I guess since it is still so new I forgot what my best present was. The best ever was last year and it was my house. I found this house right after Thanksgiving and the BF agreed to buy it. We made the offer on Dec 15th and THAT has to be my best present ever.
