No Holiday Pictures

Im looking for a super computer geek to fix my holiday blues. Yeah, I know the holidays are over but Im still blue. Some how our holiday pictures got corrupted and now they won't even open. So all 100 + pictures we took of the girls are DONE!! Not a one could be saved. Im super bummed because it was our first Christmas on Guam and Kaylena's very first Christmas. I still have hope that some really smart person out there will know what to do and save my pictures. In the mean time, you will all just have to settle for a run down of our holiday.

Agustine had to work on Christmas Eve so the girls and I went to Ypao beach. We played in the sand, ate some snacks and swam till Agustine got off work around 6pm. We were ready to go home, since we'd been there for hours!! I think we got there at like 2pm. Christmas morning was quiet. Just us and the kids. Then we headed over to our good friend's house in Macheche for Christmas lunch and dinner. Chris and Joleen Montanano invited us over to celebrate with their family and extended family. We had so much fun. The kids played, Agustine played cards with the die hard card playing crew, while Kaylena and I ate and ate and ate. It was so much fun. We loved every minute of it. We are so thankful to our friends for having us over and sharing their family with us. The next day we headed over to the Outrigger Hotel with the Montananos to swim at the hotel pool. The kids had so much fun and Kaylena swam for the longest time.

Agustine had to work again on New Years Eve. The girls and I baked goodies and watched movies. Eva fell asleep before her dad got home. Maysa managed to stay awake till around 9:30 pm but then fell asleep. We tried to keep her awake so we can go over to Tumon to watch the fireworks but that didn't happen. At midnight the streets came alive, as people ran out with their pots and pans. Music was turned up high and people got their party on! There were lots of illegal fireworks so we didn't feel left out of the firework show. On Friday Agustine had the day off so we took the girls to stay at the Onward Beach Resort. We played at the pool and the waterpark all day Friday and Saturday. Here are a few pictures that we were able to salvage from our corrupted memory card.

Oh it JUST click! Can you still view from your cam your pics? If so, just attach with your wire while it is still in the cam and upload that way. My card died also, so I just had to upload through the usb attachment cord thinger mabob. Good Luck!

L, tried that and unfortunately we had already moved the pictures out of the card and onto a folder in our computer. I got an idea from a photographer who took Kaylena's passport pictures today. He said to try a program callled JPEG recovery. So we'll see what happens. Im praying because Im so bummed about the Christmas pictures!!

Soo jealous of your weather out there. THe water park looks so fun and all the swimming, my kids would be in heaven!! I wish that was us...I hated the snow and freezing cold this winter. Maybe Jeff and I SHOULD move back to Guam..he did love it!!! Btw, that happened to my memory card before it said it was corrupted and I don't think I ever got the pics back, but I didn't have a professional try, so you might still be in luck!!!

Hey Line~ Happy New Year! Sucks about the photos but at leat you still had a great time with good friends over the holidays. Yeah, my kids are so jealous of the swimming your girls get to do in the middle of january! We ended up at my parents for new years due to my constant puking at Siope's house on new years eve, so we missed out on their fun party. Hopefully no one will be sick next year so we can go to a fun party! Good to see you guys doing well!

Hey Line, sorry about your pics! I totally know where you're coming from as I take tons of pictures. I bought an external hard drive bcuz before I would save all my pics on my comp and it would crash and I'd lose them all. So now with the hard drive I save all my files on there so if my computer ever gets messed up I can always access my pics as long as I have another comp to plug my drive to. I have a 500gb drive I bought from Walmart for about $100. Good luck! :)
