Well it's been a long day....well it's been a long, been a long, been a looong day

Yes, I know it's another naked or "neked" picture of Kember, but this one amuses me because when we got back from Utah (after 3 weeks) this is the first thing Kember did. She stripped, found her dance skirt and slippers and ran around with the horse. Yes, she does have a dance leotard to go with it, but did that make it on? Nope. She just likes to be neked.

On to other news in my oh so exciting life...the computer guys called us today with the results of our hard drive. For those of you who don't know, our computer died right before we went out to Utah for Christmas break. When we got home we decided to see if anything was recoverable. I really only cared about our, we did not back them up like we should have, so yes, I was rather distraught about that. But, not to worry, I thought, they are sure to be able to recover some of our pictures. Alas, this was not the case. Apparently when your hard drive dies a horrible death like ours did, there isn't anything that can be saved. We did have the option of sending it some place, but the starting fee was $1500.00 and well, even though I think my pictures are priceless, our bank account just couldn't afford that type of hit to it, so...this is a general plea going out to anyone who may have any pictures of us at all...anything, really...please send them to me. We are trying to get everything we can back from family, so if you think we might be remotely interested in a picture, send it my way and you will be blessed and become my new favorite person named ... whatever your name is.

Well, my Primary meeting is over and done with. It didn't quite have the inspirational "I'm so excited and can't wait to start on these goals" type feel that I had planned in my head for it to have. The girls were all really good about it, but I wonder if they just felt it was a waste of time. However, I'm not too distraught because they are really great at what they do and are good to think about the kids and their needs, and how can that be bad? It can't! So, we are okay as a presidency, and I'll just leave the goal setting to Dan cause that is what he's good at.

Speaking of Dan...I should probably go pay him some attention.

I love her grin. How can you not feel some kinship with such innocence. All I can say is keep trying with both keeping clothes on and eating. Just don't promise sweets for good stuff. In her state I don't think she will eat either.

Almost looks like she's got a graduation hat on with that black thing behind her. :) Isn't it fun that kids can do the simplest thing to bring a smile to our faces.

I love the little nekkid ballerina. Such a cutie. I'm so sorry about your pictures! We've lost one CD with pictures of me with Slaughter and our entire Hawaii trip. I can totally understand the devastation.

Your kids are cutie-pies, I can't believe how big Kember is! That picture is priceless!
I know your pain on the death of a computer and loss of all pictures. I'm sorry. That happened to us, and immediately we went out and got external hard drives to put all our future pictures on. Strangely enough, we kept the dead computer around and a couple months after it died, we tried to turn it on, and it worked. We didn't push our luck so we transferred all the important stuff immediately before it could die again for good. Maybe something magical like that will happen for you guys?
