Driving myself crazy

I don't know why I let things overwhelm me so easily. I think part of it is that I'm a perfectionist, so if i don't do something well I don't like to do it. Hence the lack of blogs! I'm playing catch up, though. I've now got all my February and March pictures posted. April is still a work in progress.

Charlie Turns One!!!

Elsie made a birthday card for him, and Aaron bought him a monster bone. I think he was happy!

March Weekend with Q

Q got to spend the weekend with us while Ang went down to Utah for a wedding. She was an angel!! We had so much fun, and Elsie loved having her around all the time. They got along so well!

She arrived on St. Patrick's Day while Elsie had Hailey over for a playdate. Q came up with this pose all on her own!

Elsie had to copy it!

I was super obnoxious and kept taking tons of pictures of the girls all weekend.

Here's the Pillow Pet we bought for Elsie. We ended up taking it back and she switched to the unicorn.

Every time I tried to get a picture of both of them with their pillows, Q just kept going crazy and wrestling around. Elsie decided to join in on the pillow fight!

All the girls at the party!

I love that Q is so easy to have around and just gets along with everyone. She loves to be around people and made herself right at home wherever she was. We just love that girl!

March Fun with Friends

Elsie loves playing with friends. She asks me every day who she gets to play with that day. I guess I am pretty much her personal assistant.

Brooklyn came over and the girls painted.
Pam hosted a group of girls at her house for a "Tangled" viewing party. I hung around for that one. They had to much fun and were totally into the movie.

Elsie, Lauren, Taylor, Hailey

We also spend a day at Jabbers with a bunch of friends during Spring Break.


In February we got to go down to Utah for Ashley's farewell.

The last night we were there, we got together with Jeff, Nicole, Ashley, and Alexis to play games. Always fun!!! We were so glad to get some good bonding time in before she left to New Mexico.

Rook gets a little crazy!

We are now proud owners of...

...a new computer. Just wanted to explain my major lack of blogging this month. And to answer the question about what it's not a mac. #1) We don't have mac money #2) We don't know how to work a mac We got a very basic computer. We hardly spent any money it. It will get us by for a while (hopefully a long while). Does that make this news not as exciting? I know you're disappointed, Jared!!

Do you know anything about computers?

I need help! My computer is freaking out on me. We have an HP notebook. It is only a few years old. Yesterday while I was using the computer, I realized the volume wasn't working. When I clicked on the little megaphone on the taskbar, it said "No audio output device is installed." I don't know what that means, and it's especially odd to me because Aaron had just been watching a video a not long before that. Anyway, my sister gave me the idea to do a system restore to a previous date. I did that, and it seemed to work. Then today, it happened again. I tried that again with no luck. I've been reading all sorts of information and ideas from the HP website. I've tried downloading drivers, some sort of BIOS stuff...pretty much all sorts of stuff that hasn't worked and makes no sense to me. I'm so clueless!! So, do you know anything about this stuff?? Do you know someone who might?? I feel like I should just go buy a new computer because I don't want to spend a bunch of money to have someone tell me I need to fix something. (This happened to me last summer when we had to replace the video card thingy...$200 later. I should've just bought a new computer then!!!) Anyway, maybe someone out there knows a little something about what I'm talking about. If you do, you know where to find me!
