I think your first decisions are; 'how much you want to spend' and 'how big or how small of a camera do you want'?

Absolutely! I wouldn't recommend buying a DSLR if you just want to take a few snapshots of the kids or if you want something that is easy to stick in your pocket or purse. But don't buy just by price -- check the reviews on the site I recommended, on Amazon, Consumer Reports, Popular Photography, CNET, etc.

That said, my daughter was very dissatisfied with the quality of the photos of her kids she was getting from her older point-and-shoot digital camera. The shutter lag (the delay between the time you press the button and the time the camera actually takes the photo) was a huge problem when trying to capture squirming 3- and 5-year-olds, and the auto focus and exposure were less than ideal. She's been much happier on all counts with her photos since she got a Canon EOS Digital Rebel XSI. But that's about $700 and it's quite large, as big as a 35mm film SLR.

Great photos, VB. I'm really impressed with what that little (relatively inexpensive) camera can produce.
