Camera ?

Well, my camera starting giving me problems a few months back with it's flash. Now it has begun to be very moody and somedays I can snap pictures and other days it won't snap a single shot. Being a mother of 5 beautiful children who do very entertaining things, who look extrememly cute and who create many moments that NEED to be captured I can not live with a camera like this.

So, I have a few choices that Kyle has enough State Farm points to buy. And I am hoping some of my camera savy sister in laws will give me an opinion.

Should I stick with one similar to my own who gives me great quality shots, offers me much to learn (that I keep thinking I will take classes to do someday but never find the time for) or should I switch to a smaller, no learning needed type camera with great zooming capabilities w/out having to buy another lense? The truth is I am having such a hard time learning anything trying to read on them. I need to take a class. I LOVE taking pictures and hope someday to grow in this area not just for the sake of my family but to bless others with family pictures like what Jill has done for so many of us. I also am trying to be realistic about my life as a homeschooling mom that leaves me about no extra time on a regular basis. I'm afraid I will be disappointed with the quality of the images I get on a small camera. Okay, I can vent all day on my confusion but I will leave you with some pics of the choices I have w/in the State Farm Point Catalog options.

Nikon D3000 or D5000

Canon EOS Digital Rebel 10MP

Canon Powershot G11 10.3MP
Nikon Coolpix P100 10.3MP

Please give me some honest feedback... I'm LOST!
