i have uploaded all of my old photo cd's to the computer
the are saved
ready for use
goodness that was a lot of cd's
kind of strange having three years of your life literally flash before you
funny story...one of the cd's i uploaded had a huge amount of photos on it...like 300...when i opened the pics, they were not ours! for some reason i must not have opened this cd when we ordered it years ago. we got to see a bunch of rowdy young people enjoying a trip to ireland. (was that wrong of us to look???) boy i bet they were disappointed when they opened up our cd to find pictures of two little girls in princess dresses running around! i really hope they somehow got their photos back...that would have really stunk!!
one of the things i have always wanted to do was have a bunch of our old and new favorite photos playing on our desktop slide show. i am proud to say that slide show is now up and running. it really is impossible to walk by the computer without pausing for just a moment.
whenever we are in the kitchen (inevitably trying to cook or prepare something) we keep hearing "mom/dad...look!" . it's fun and it makes for great dinner conversation as we sit there and watch the photos flash by. i think aubrey likes seeing her sisters as babies the most.
speaking of big bucks, we finally heard back from the company we sent our old mangled hard drive to. we found out how much it will be to "try" and retrieve our data. want to even try and guess.....$1500!!!!!!! needless to say we are seeking a second opinion and considering a photo only retrieval. moral of the story again...back up people...back up!! i am now in the process of looking into printing all the photos that are stored in my google web albums. (the ones that are on my blog) anyone have any experience with that?
on another note, my sweet little janey is now sick.
i guess that's the way it works in a house full of girls who love to kiss and hug
we spent another day snuggling in front of the tv
i am so thankful my older girls are totally ok with watching toddler/preschool television
it makes my heart happy that they are still innocent like that
goodness this one cracks me up!!
hope everyone is well in your home,
have a happy day,
