Lost Documentation

I wanted to recap Christmas with some photos, but alas, my memory card seems to be corrupted and I can't get the images or video from it. I took video of Bella running out to her stocking and exclaiming 'He came!' as well as pictures of her enjoying her toys in unorthodox ways, and Timm and I enjoying our new gifts. They seem to be lost forever in the abyss of digital images that now exist only in theory, rather than on my pc or better yet, printed or posted to my blog. When I got out an old memory card to use instead I checked it for existing pictures and it contained a bunch from the hospital when we had Fiona.
I took this one from the hospital bed as we waited for the amnio test results to come back. Apparently I have a lot of freckles in the summer!
Bella enjoyed a good Christmas, and I think Timm and I (er, I mean, Santa...) hit upon a good balance this year. I only bought her a few items from the Dollar Spot for her stocking because she received such generous gifts from other family and we had presents we'd reserved from last Christmas when I was afraid she was getting too many things! We saved them through the last year and used them this Christmas, making for an affordable and reasonable Christmas. Her main gift (from us) was a train set, which she is thoroughly enjoying in the usual and unusual ways, as you might imagine. For the last 3 days Timm and I have played at least one game a day of one of our favorite gifts, Ticket to Ride, which we received from Timm's parents. (Anyone who is a fan of Settlers of Catan will probably enjoy this as well.) Timm had played it with Hannah and Linc before, but it was brand new to me. Over the next few days I will highlight some of our gifts as we enjoy them. We are very blessed and have received many wonderful things from many people that we would otherwise never enjoy, as well as several amazing handmade things, which are probably my favorite items.

You look way cute in that picture and not pregnant faced at all (you know, the pregnant face swollen look? Am I the only one that has that the last month?) I wish I had freckles...

I think it is awesome that you could save presents for an entire year! I started working on something today for next Christmas and I am already antsy. I need a lesson in patience!

Glad to have the report, but I am sooooooooo sad that we can't see the ones that are lost in space!

Sounds like you had a great day and I'll be waiting to hear more reports on Bella's creative play with new objects! Michelle and I have been musing about that very thing.....no such happenings around here!

Oh no, say it isn't so! I hope you can figure out what's wrong with your memory card or take it to be looked at by a professional or something, it's just too sad to think of those pictures being lost.

I think it's great that you guys didn't feel like you needed to buy a lot for Bella. I think kids get overwhelmed when there's too much stuff. It's crazy that we go all year not buying them toys and then on their birthdays and Christmas then get a ton, it's illogical really.

So sorry to hear about you lost photos...was really anxious to see pictures of Christmas morning!!
I have a program that will retrieve lost/erased images....but DON"T take more pictures on that card, or they will be lost forever.

Oh, I hope you can retrieve your lost photos with Dad's help!

I'm so so sad that I didn't think to take video on Christmas Day. Seriously.

We got Ticket to Ride, too! But we haven't played it yet.

Just the thought of Bella running around screaming, "HE CAME! HE CAME!" is a delight. Let's hope Sneelock can come to your rescue!
