If you give a kid a camera...

For her birthday the Peep got a couple of the If You Give a ... books. You know the ones- If You Give a Mouse a Cookie and the like.

I would now demonstrate what happens if you give a 5 year old your new camera...

She will take pictures of the Jelly Bellys that Slick received from one of his vendors.

She will like the colors so much, she will go around looking for other things colorful to take pictures of.

She will find a bowl of random ornaments and take their picture too.

This will remind her that it is Christmas time and there are many things around the house decorating.

She will go on a spree taking pictures of those as well.

The next thing you know there are 20 or so pictures from all different angels of the downstairs of the house, including several unflattering ones of you and the family which must be deleted immediately!
