It’s amazing what a good night’s sleep, oodles of wonderful blog comments, and just some good old fashioned common sense will do for a gal.
Today was an absolutely wonderful day. Nothing horrible happened. In fact it was downright pleasant and I even took a nap.
I’m 90% hopeful that somehow, someway we will be able to recover all our pictures. It might take a little time, some money, but hope is on our side right now. Prince Erik scoured our other files on the computer and was able to find quite a few. Still no baby ones of Hope but she’s our youngest so I know we will have a better chance of finding some more of her. I then realized that even though we have six years of digital files on the computer. I didn’t covert to digital until 3 ½ years ago so I still have those dreaded shoeboxes stacked in a closet that contain the majority of Princess’s baby pictures. Can’t believe I forgot that yesterday. Being that I’m the main picture taker, you would have thought I’d remember. I guess I’ve been so converted to digital that I forgot about all the film pictures. It seems like more than 3 ½ years ago since I’ve used one of those cameras.
So again, thanks for your positive feedback. You guys are awesome. Sorry I was such a whiner.
Tonight was our Church’s Christmas Party. I stayed home with two sickies and while hubby was out with the older kids, a Christmas Elf stopped by.
I’m torn about this elf because I don’t want whoever it is to feel sorry for us or think us needy, but at the same time our kids are tickled red and green and I’m deeply grateful for such caring gesture. Such a clever fellow he or she was, I’ve just got to share their adorable poem. Maybe I can shamelessly copy the ideas and pass along the wonderful thoughts to someone else next year. With the poem came a darling Christmas tree night light.
Twas the first day of Christmas and all through your house,
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
‘Cept suddenly one little soul did appear,
It’s your Christmas friend bringing you holiday cheer!
Tonight calls for a partridge for your pear tree with reason,
But partridges are tough catches and pears aren’t in season.
So how ‘bout a tree that when plugged in brings light,
Certainly this will make you squeal with delight!
Tonight the first night we hope you will be glad
To realize that eleven more nights are still to be had.
So from now until Christmas Eve pay attention yourself,
Each night will bring a secret from your own little Elf!
Now beware of this warning – that your friend will be here,
But you better not look, or we’ll quickly disappear!
And then all your gifts that were so carefully planned,
On some other porch they will surprisingly land!
So to our secret Christmas Elf and to all the sweet blog commentors - A Huge Thank you because Y'all made my day today!
