I Write in Tears

So, obviously it has been a long time since I have posted. The reason is bc I really do not like to post without a pictures if it is about the kids. I have not been able to put the pictures on the computer bc my computer is full. For the record, I did get an external harddrive and tried to set it up, but it was one of the only ones not compatible with a mac (I was assured over and over again in the store that it was compatible). So I have been saving up pictures on my camera and we have had some major milestones. Miller turned four months, Ella's birthday party, our beach trip, Miller rolled over for the first time and I am sure I am forgetting other things. Last night Ella somehow had gotten the camera which I did not really think much about bc it looked like she had only turned the camera on. This morning I walked in the living room and Ella had gotten into my make up and had lipstick all over her face. Of course she got in trouble first bc we have gone over and over not getting in Mommy's purse. But then I thought it would be a cute picture and a cute blog. When I took the picture I realized the shutter speed was way wrong. Not really knowing much about my camera I tried to figure it out and somehow I erased all of my pictures!!!! I am very upset right now, but I guess there is not really anything to do about it (unless one of you is a cannon expert and knows how to recover lost pictures). I am just sick about it, this is the second time I have lost something very precious because of my stupid harddrive being full. Lesson: If you have a laptop and not a lot of storage, get an external harddrive way before you think you need one! You definitely do not want to be sitting in my position right now!

  5. I think there are programs that you can download from the internet that recover deleted pictures from a memory card. I had a friend that accidentally deleted a memory card, and they called the company and got some type of software to restore the pictures. I have never used it personally so not sure if it is always works. I think you can find some by looking on google or possibly by calling the camera company. Hope you can get them back!
