A couple of questions:
1. What type of digital camera were you using (brand, model, etc)?
2. What setting did you have the camera on?
3. Does the camera have manual settings or can you put it in "Night Landscape" mode? You'll want to either use a tripod or place the camera on a sturdy, level surface when you use this setting because it will use the longest shutterspeed the camera has (anywhere from 2-8 seconds, most likely). Use the camera's timer if it has one so you don't accidentally shake the camera by pushing the button.
And just for FYI, your pictures have a lot of noise in them. That's the red, green, and blue pixels that are really apparent on the house. That's normal for most digital cameras. Try using the free version of Neat Image to clean up the noise. You'll notice a big difference in the picture quality.
