Stupid camera....

Well, I had some new things to show you, but my camera totally freaked out and won't upload anything to my computer. Not sure what is wrong with it. And hubby is still not feeling well so he's in bed and can't help me. :( He stayed the night at the hospital Friday for his sleep test-he has sleep apnea. I am hoping that the machine they are giving him will make him stop snoring!! Anyway, I hopefully will be able to show you some of my work soon! Finished a few layouts of Aaron, plus I did Alex's ultrasound photo! I'm hoping to do a few layouts from Easter today, but we will see.

I hit up the first yard sales of the season yesterday!! SO EXCITING! I went out looking for clothes for both boys, a jumperoo, maternity clothes, an outside swing for Aaron, and any other odds and ends for Aaron and Alex. We ended up going to 6 yard sales, and only 2 of them were any good. One had a huge sign that said "GIANT YARD SALE" on it, and when we got there she had one table of junk set up. Seriously, her sign was just as big as her whole yard sale, lol. But I did end up finding a Jumperoo! I was so excited! I've slowly been registering for things online for Alex's shower, and when I looked at the Jumperoos, they were $60-$90. So I knew that was something I wanted to find at a yard sale this year. I paid $15 for it. It is in great condition and much larger than I expected. We had the doorway jumper for Aaron, and I hated it. Didn't feel secure about it, plus it was always in the way, and it had Aaron in a really weird place. He couldn't see me or watch TV or anything. So I'm still happy about my find today! The lady that I got that from also gave me some maternity clothes! We have been talking on the freecycle board, and was just coincidence that she had a yard sale! I also picked up 10 pieces of clothes for the boys and paid $2! The guy was practically giving things away because his family was moving. And he had some great stuff. A lot of the bigger things we already had, or else I would've bought a lot more from him! But I got Aaron 3 pairs of shorts and 4 shirts (including a Curious George one that he carried around half the night), and I got Alex a shirt, an outfit, and a really cute hat. I love yard sales. :)

Well, that's about all for now. Missed church this morning because I had one of those Braxton Hicks contractions for about an hour. Hurt so bad I just laid on the couch. Aaron kept coming over and saying "Mommy crying?". I told him no, my belly just hurt. He's so sweet. I hope you all had a great weekend, and here's wishing you a wonderful upcoming week! Thanks for stopping by!

I LOVE garage sales! I can't wait for them to start up around here! It's the thrill of the hunt for me! I got my sewing machine at a sale last year for $15. I had been looking for one for years, but they were always too expensive or too dirty, etc. I haven't really had a chance to use it too much, but I'm thrilled to have it. It's one of the BIG ones in a table top cabinet, and the lady had the instruction manual! Score! Sounds like you got some GREAT stuff! I hope you're feeling better! Take care!
