Photography (DSLR Advice)

Hi Folks,

So I finally broke down and bought a DSLR on Blackfriday - I ended up getting a Canon T3i with the 18-55 lens kit and then purchased the "nifty fifty" 50mm prime lense as well.

Is anyone on here in to photography? I'm pretty new to it, but got tired of my old P&S (should be POS) giving terrible low light pictures, missing photos with the kids, etc. I'll mainly be doing pictures of my kids indoors, some portraits, some outside pictures (landscape) some sports, etc. Nothing too crazy, but pretty across the board.

Any recommendations for other good budget lenses for Canon? I'm looking at a telephoto lens now - not sure if anyone has any good recommendations on that (Sigma, Canon, etc).

What about other must have accessories? Filters, bags, flashes, etc. I'm open for any and all advice.

TIA.
Rich
