Is that a new iPad2 ?

Why yes, yes it is!  :)

After months (separately) and weeks (together) of discussing the purchase of an iPad2, Karen and I "bit the bullet" and bought one today.  The true wisdom or silliness of our purchase remains to be seen, but this much I can tell you so far ... we're both digging the AngryBirds and PhotoBooth!  :)

A little backstory here:
About three months ago I got the idea to begin saving money to surprise Karen with an iPad for Christmas.  I knew they run between $500 - $800, so it was going to take a tremendous effort (and some fortunate "bonus(es)" at work to make this dream a reality.  But I wanted to do this for her because she deserves it and I know I'd get some use out of it too.
Little did I know that, around the same time, Karen was plotting something similar for me.  She knew how I had talked about the iPad that my friend (Mark M) at work has and how excited I was when I told her just a few of the things it can do.  So she began saving money and planned to get me one for my birthday.

So on my birthday our mutual "secrets" came out and we both laughed at how similar our minds were/are.  We agreed that we would let our budget get us an iPad as an early Christmas present (coupled with a little money from what each of us had saved towards its purchase).

I'm sure I'll write more about it later, especially once Mark and my sister Jaimee and anyone else with an iPad teaches us about all the really cool apps we can get and use.  Until then, here's a few pictures that really show you nothing of the new iPad ... but Karen's having fun with it.  :)

You can't really tell, but the cover is blue.  It's so tiny too !!!  :) 

Obviously Karen was looking for a VERY
challenging Disney game!  Ha ha!
