Webcam Shenanigans

James and I recently had a great decision to make. Our old PC was on it's way out and it was time for the dreaded computer purchase.

My sister had recently bought a MAC and told us that it was amazing. At a staggering $1200 for the least expensive desktop, we had some serious considering to do. I went into the Apple Store loaded with questions, and came out dead set that I wanted to own one.

It has been SO much fun! I can't even begin to tell you all of the amazing features that it possesses, but my most favorite is the iPhoto and all of the editing I can do with it.
I have been dreaming of doing some more photo editing with all the pictures I have, and a while back I had gotten a trial version of Photoshop; only to realize there was no way I would be able to learn it all without a class.

But the MAC makes it so easy to do some fun edits. Here's a few of my favs from editing

~Our Wedding~

~My sister's beautiful family~

~Josiah's Makeup Skills~

But the most fun aspect of it all is that it comes with a webcam. I'll be honest and admit that webcams have always freaked me out. But the boys are CRAZY about it. I'm mean really crazy about it. We've taken a million of these....

"Help Me!"

~Brotherly Love~

~Yep...Embracing the Camera for sure!~

Anyway...I think we'd make a pretty good looking alien family.
Don't you?

Linking up with Emily today!

I love how kids just can't resist photobooth! The best part is coming back to the computer to find pictures they took themselves. :D

and my boys love our webcam too! we have so many pictures of them playing together & i love it.

Adorable pic of your boys kissing your daughter. And I love the funny one at the end. Thanks for your comment on my embrace the camera post. Wanted to say..the hat is from Osh hardware store (in the garden section..they have lots of colors) They're usually 20-25 dollars...and have and spf of 25. I only wear them because I was diagnosed with lupus two years ago and I have to. But I've learned to embrace my hats and accept that this is just something I have to do to stay healthy. :) Hope you're having a great weekend.
