Last week, Greg, Becky, Jaxon and the soon-to-be-born baby moved to San Antonio, Texas. We're more than brokenhearted, but we are excited for the Young's to find some new opportunities in the land of the southern drawl.

Every day, Maddox asks if Jaxon is coming over to play, and I remind him that Jaxon lives in Texas now. So every day, Maddox asks if today is the day we are going on the airplane to Texas. Unfortunately, no.

So, the boys have been talking to each other on the phone recently and this morning, I helped Maddox write a letter to his best buddy...

Stolen Goods

Since the double whammy of a lost camera and a crashed hard drive, I have no recent photos to share. So, I did what every desperate blogger would do. I stole some.

I pilfered these pictures from Amanda's blog. They were taken at our most recent church playgroup meeting. Notice the prized Christmas gift on Maddox's feet. We're getting a lot of use out of those puppies!

When It Rains, It Pours

I hate technology. (Yes, I recognize the irony of that statement as it's posted on my Internet scrapbook.)

Technology lulls me into a false sense of security, as if everything that has ever been stored is retrievable. But it's not. Exhibit A: my laptop hard drive. You know, the hard drive I stored all my photos on for the last year. Crashed. Gone. Blank.

One might suggest that I invest in an online backup tool like Carbonite. I do have an online backup service! On my desktop. Oops.

The technology gods must really be angry with me because I also lost my camera. I realize that can't really be blamed on technology in general, but it makes me feel better to heap the culpability on something other than myself.

So, first things first. If you have any relatively recent photos of my family, please send me a copy. Don't worry. Maddox's baby photos are safe and sound. Secondly, Maddox's 4th birthday is coming up! And since I just bought a new camera, I'll have photos to share soon!
