Kodak Camera

Alright, so here's the long and short of it. If you're looking to buy a digital camera, avoid Kodak brand. Go with something reliable like a Cannon or Nikon. Seriously, they've been jerking my chain hard. I bought a camera of theirs last summer and no less than five months later it malfunctioned for no reason. Okay, so I'm missing all the holidays with my kids on film before they finally send me what I thought was a new camera (This is after three long customer service calls, 14$ of my own money to ship it out, and having it shipped back and forth three times). So, this last month I started having problems again, out of the blue, and guess what? I start looking closer at the camera and there's a sticker on it that says "refurbished." Are you kidding me? So THIS camera lasted a little longer, but come on. It just doesn't have any guts. Well, the company almost put me off saying that it had been a year since we purchased the original camera and that it was out of warranty. I didn't take no for an answer. So instead of giving me a "BRAND NEW" camera, or even reimbursing me for the product (like I would've preferred, so I could spend it on a different brand) they are AGAIN having me send them the camera. Errrr! I've wasted so much time on trying to make this situation better. I pretty much know the UPS store employee's by name. Anyway, it's just frustrating, and I don't feel that I'm being treated fairly as a paying customer. The least I can do is warn others against spending their $ on one of these money, time, and lost memory wasters. Oh, and thanks for letting me vent : )

I Look at Magna-Doodle People

Hayden drew his first person March 24, 2010
We hadn't even practiced drawing them together.
He's such a smart boy!

This "guy" was drawn May 10, 2010.
I can't stand how cute he is!
Preston also wanted a picture of his drawing
March 24, 2010.
His people have recently included arms.
Sometimes more than two.

Banana Thief

Hayden, what's in your mouth?

A banana? Where did you get that?

That's where it is now, but where did you get it?
Hayden Joseph, that's a big (muffled laugh) no no.
Okay? No. No.

Hayden likes bananas more than pickles.

I Got A Pickle

Hayden loves, and I mean LOVES dill pickles.

This happened right after Hayden asked me
if I liked sea food. I can't believe I fell for it!

Spider Boy

I remember doing this when I was a kid.
Yeah, I'm a little impressed.

Random Pictures

My three handsome boys.
I like big shirts and I cannot lie,
You other mothers can't deny . . .
I really don't know the rest,
and we can thank Shrek for that!

If you've got it, flaunt it!
(These are my black high heels by the way)
After one of our dates,
Casey and I stopped to pick the boys up from Peggy and Ken's.
This is how they were. My heart could literally burst.
Missionary hair. Totally slick. And righteous.
This pretty much says it all.
Preston loves to make Hayden laugh.
He also likes to make a mess while he mixes.
Especially when my back is turned.
My two little angels. Wait, what was I saying a second ago?

Peter Pan's secret identity revealed.
That or Peter Pan was actually reincarnated as my son.
We may never know . . .

Just watching t.v. on a pack of toilet paper.
What could be more natural? or comfy?
The thing I love most about Hayden being asleep
is that I can kiss him as much as I want
without being pushed away, as is often the case.
The thing I love most about Preston being asleep is
that nothing can be destroyed or climbed on,
and I finally have a minute without my shadow.
He's practically perfect at this moment.

Best Buddies. Heart Melters.

Fitzgerald Family Campout

What a handsome, rugged, intelligent, stylish man.
Preston's chipmunk face.
Another silly face by Presto.

Preston didn't let anyone sit in "his chair"
Casey casually told him it was his, but he
took it very literally. It was pretty funny.
Dinner time.
Grammy collecting rocks for Hayden to throw in the stream.
I want to squish that bug with my bare finger. I have no fear.
Blue is my color isn't it?
I'm training to join the circus

Peggy, Kendra, Taylor, Carly, as well as Casey, Preston, Hayden, and I had a fun little camp out up in the canyons. It was nice to go on a camping trip and not be pregnant (like I was the first two summers). The boys were old enough to have a good time getting dirty and wet. That's what the outdoors are all about! Very fun overnighter!
