I'm so so absolutely sick in my stomach right now. I can not even talk about this on the phone without breaking into tears. My new laptop was majorly disfunctioning so Dell had me do a system restore on my computer. It was basically to completely wipe out my computer and start from scratch. The rep talked me through how to backup all my pictures and documents onto a DVD. Well as you can probably guess by now it DID NOT back up. I have NO pictures developed since Christmas. Yes this includes Marshall's pictures. The ONLY upside is I did upload 89 of Marshall's hospital pictures to Ofoto shortly after he was born. Other than that, it's all I have!!! I lost all of my mom's group files which is massive but not nearly as precious as my pictures. I can recreate files but I can not retake pictures.

So this is my plead!!!! If anyone has ANY pictures of my boys will you PLEASE save them to a disk or email them to me??????? Even if I emailed you pictures of them and you still have them saved will you forward them back to me? I'm begging!!! Once I get them I'm printing them right away.

Thank you so much and seriously please pray I do not have bad dreams about this tonight. Have I ever said I hate technology?

Quick One!

I have not blogged in well over a week so I wanted to jump on and post a quick update. We are doing good. Now with me working it's hard for me to find spare time to sit at the computer. I should be in bed right now preparing for wake up time with the boys.

Tonight I finished up a border swap I have been working on for about 2 weeks. It was really time consuming but I did enjoy doing it. It just used more supplies than I was expecting. I can't wait to get the other ladies creations back and see what they did.

Today we went to a family members retirement party. I was able to get some great outdoor pictures of Mitch. He is so fun and full of life. Marshall is now 3 months old and sweet as can be. He is smiling, cooing, and really focusing on objects. He definitly knows his mommys voice.

Well off to bed I go!! Thanks for checking in and I promise I'll make time to post more later. I have a funny Mitch story to tell so remind me!!

Outside the Box!!

Well I decided to step outside of the box this week. I normally only scrapbook and do not dabble much with stamping. I blame it on being a sloppy stamper. However my friend April lives in Germany and her husband is deployed right now in Iraq. She is doing cards for troops who do not receive mail. This touched my heart and I thought I would give it a shot. I created 2 different designs of cards. I do not like the one at all so I'm not going to share it. I'm debating redoing it (if I can find the time.) The second one I thought turned out pretty cute. I also worked on a baby boy page last night but I think I need to add more to it. I'm still debating!! Once I decide I'll share the page with you because it's turning out cute.

I used MME paper, Stampin Up and Provo Craft Stamps. The ribbon is by American Crafts that I purchased at AC Moore. The white paper is just a basic card stock.

On a family note: Mitchell is a ham! We got his hair cut over the weekend. I LOVED it long but poor little guy was so hot. We have had some hot, humid days here in PA. Marshall is sweet as ever! This Thursday he'll be 10 weeks old. Hard to believe. Here are some pictures of my boys. I can never get a good picture of the two of them together.

Back to work I go!

Well tomorrow I start my first day of work at the Sportman's Association. I'll be working part time as their office manager. It will be nice to have some working hours out of the house and to have hubby home more often.

We had a wonderful baby dedication weekend with Marshall. It was so great to see our family and friends. Their support is awesome! We had an after dedication part at mom's pool. It was a perfect day.

I worked on a few projects in the past couple days. More just completing ones I already started. My in-laws were here until yesterday so I tried not to bore them while I worked on swap projects.

Here are some pictures for you to see!!

Rough Day!

My poor little Marshall had his 2 month shots yesterday. It was horrible!! His little legs were in so much pain. Then he did not have an appetite so the combination of being hungery and in pain just about broke mommy down. He screamed for 3 hours with about 10-15 minute breaks. Once he fell asleep he was out but it was just getting to that point. He is now weighing in at 9lbs 14oz and 20" long. He's growing but he's still my little peanut. His little waist is starting to thicken up a little.

The other night I worked on a girl swap for one of my swaps. Thought I would share it with you. I really had a blast with it and took my time on it because I don't get to do girl pages.

Today we went to the Deli for an outside lunch and for the boys to play at the play ground. We always have to finish our visit to the deli with ice cream. I could not pass up these awsome pictures.

Down Time!

Well I have a little bit of down time today. Both boys are down for a nap but I know it's a matter of minutes before Marshall wakes. I'm working on a "busy bees" page with bumble bees on it. My Cricut is having to be replaced due to a malfunction so it sorta has me on hold for a few days until it arrives. I got all the pieces pretty much cut out for it so my next step once I receive my Cricut is to assemble. I'll take a picture of it to share with you cuz it's turning out so super cute. It might just be one of my favs.

This Sunday the 8th we are having Marshall's baby dedication. Our family is coming in from NC. I'm looking forward to the company. Larkin is gone till Wednesday night.

Tomorrow is Marshall's 2 month check up. I can not wait to see his weight and length. The down side is he has to get a shot. Darn things!! This will be his first since birth.

Well I'm going to kick my feet up for a few minutes until it's feeding time with Marshall. Have a great Sunday!
