PostSubject: A nice start to the week   Mon Nov 10, 2008 2:45 pm

I was doing some sorting this morning, and trying to slowly catch up on some of the stuff that I've fallen behind in, having been sick. So, as I was sorting, I found a disc that wasn't labelled. I put it in my laptop, and found dozens and dozens of old pictures of my precious children. Pictures that I thought were lost forever! What a wonderful, wonderful gift! Love Love Love Love


Here's one of Caleb, pretending to be a puppy:



And one of Jeremiah and Rachel the day that Mikey came home from the hospital:



One of Rachel all bundled up to play in the snow:




Just tons of wonderful memories. *sniff* I'm so thankful to have found that disc! It sure helped to make the week start out right. Especially after having woke up to a very rude e-mail this morning. (Not from anyone here, by the way.) But between the lovely messages you all posted, and this wonderful find. . . .the week is starting out beautifully after all. Love

I am so happy that you found the disc with the kids on it. Seeing those pictures would brighten anyone's day, and especially you knowing how precious those children are to you. I'm glad you are having a nice start to the week. You certainly deserve it!

Thank you, everyone! I love it that we can all share in one another's excitement!

This is Caleby, snuggling up to fall asleep on his Uncle Aaron. The children love him so much. Seriously, every one of the children said "Aaron" as their first word! With Caleb, it came out more like "Airn". grinsmiley And Caleb SO has my lips in this picture! (I wonder if I should ask for them back? Wink )

The irony of this Savannah, you are NOT going to believe. I missed this post yesterday! Um, JUST this weekend I mentioned to my mom that I was missing 3 video tapes of Brendan when he was a baby...I told her how upset I was that I must have put them somewhere and they're lost somewhere in a black hole of this house!! To which my MOM replied, rather nonchalantly in fact, "Oh, you know, I think I might have those. It seems like you let me borrow them once." :faint2: I went right over there and FOUND them buried in the back of her entertainment center!! It was like finding a $100 bill or something, I kid you not!! There is just NOTHING more precious than memories of our children, nothing, especially visual ones. So I know how you feel Savannah, and I am just so surprised that you and I were blessed almost to the day with a similar gift! Wink

Darling pics by that way...And I do believe those little lips on Caleb are the cutest I've ever seen---they look like "doll" lips, don't they?!? So sweet.

Amy!! I'm so thrilled for you! You're right, I couldn't have been happier if I'd have found $100. I'm still looking through the pictures, enjoying reliving all of those beautiful moments. Love

It's funny, Caleb, my brother Charles and I all have the same kind of lips. Everyone else in the family has more thin, elegant looking lips. What can I say? I notice odd things. batEyes

Caleb's little lips are cuter, though. Love You're right, they do look like doll lips. *smooch*

Thanks Savannah. I have only gotten through one of the tapes so far...the first one was when he was about 4 months old! OhMy I'm video-taping him as I'm walking into his nursery, and he is just lifting his head up slightly to see over the bumper pad of the crib! *SIGH*, and he gives this giant smile...he doesn't know what to make of the (HUGE) video camera, but he hears my familiar coo-ing voice and that makes him feel safe. Love Gosh, I love my 18 year old, but goodness, it's times like these I really wish I could go back, even for a day. Wink

And here ya go Savannah---I thought this was approriate:

That's great that you found the picture disc, Savannah, and that you got your video tapes back, Amy.

Thanks Lori & Susie! Yep, relieved it right Susie!! I have had some 'video-tape' horror stories actually....my dad actually taped a football game over the video of Brendan's newborn tape, of him coming home from the hospital. It was our fault for not punching out the little 'tab' thingy that prevents someone from recording over, AND it was so new that we hadn't even labled it yet, but we had left it at my parents. We saw it only once, and I'm thankful I at least got that one time. My dad felt horrible, that's for sure! On top of that, I am missing my 'newborn' video tape of Nick too...don't ask me how such important things get lost!! :think: You'd think after the first incident we would have kept the second baby's video in a vault! :sad5:

When I was a little girl, I was always the only girl with full lips. AND, my lips tended to look like I was wearing lipstick. So the teachers would tell me that I was too little to wear lipstick, so to go wash it off. :haha:

I hope that you find your tape of Nick as a newborn! That must have been heartbreaking to have had Brendan's tape "footballed"!

Thanks, Carol, Susie & Lori! Wave

Aw, never Savannah....you know me better than that. batEyes

And yep, I cried as if someone had DIED when the tape was taped over with a football game! It actually DID feel like a 'loss'---I still can't believe I let it happen again with Nick's! Ugh.

Great pics, Savannah! I'm happy for you!
It gives me hope that I'll find my lost video!
Oh, and full lips are in right now- not thin ones like mine!
I've resisted the lip plumpers that are on the market though!

Oh boy, I know your pain, Amy. Back in the mid-'80s, my Mom's three brothers and their wives came for a visit. The family is spread out all over the country, and this was one of the few times over the years that they'd all been together. I made a really nice video of the occasion. I thought it would be a wonderful keepsake - it turned out to be the last time they were ever all together - and I vowed to keep it forever. Which I did... right up until a few months later when I taped an episode of Newhart over it.
:faint2:

I never did tell my Mom, and I think she's forgotten that the video ever existed, because she's never mentioned it. But I live in fear that some day she'll go searching for it, plug it into the VCR expecting to relive warm family memories, and instead... "Hi, I'm Larry, this is my brother Darryl, and this is my other brother Darryl..."
