We had a Monster Truck party for Kaden's 4th birthday. I forgot to take pictures until it was time to open gifts. We did a pin the wheels on the monster truck game and had a pinata and I made chocolate cupcakes with green and purple frosting for the Grave Digger colors.

Backup your data!

This is a reminder to keep your important files backed up such as pictures, music, documents etc.  Hard drives are fairly cheap for a good size and will be worth the investment to get one.  Over time hard drives will fail, so you need a plan in place to keep from losing very important data.  One of our drives started having issues in our server and I did not think too much about it until yesterday.  It stopped showing up in windows and I could no longer gain access to the drive. This drive had our music, pictures, programs, personal files and phone apps / games.  I had luckily made a backup of our personal files and pictures back in March, so any pictures since then are now gone forever.  I am very happy that I at least made the backup back in March, but should have kept up to date on the backup so we didnt have to lose as much.  None of my music was backed up so it is now all gone. 

I do not want this same thing to happen to anyone else especially if you do not have ANY backups at all.  If you can pull together an extra $100 or so to get a backup drive and possibly some blank dvd's then please do so ASAP and ask me if you need help backing up your information.  Its a good idea to backup your information on a seperate drive, but also make some dvd backups.

I used to upload my camera on my laptop. It was having issues so Ty transfered everything over to his computer. Not long after, the pictures all disappeared from my lap top. Now I put all my pictures on his computer and a hard drive.
What would you do with 1 million dollars?

So lately I have been working on SOOO many websites, trying to create something that will get big and bring in lots of money.  I am not sure how many of you know all the sites i've got going on but there is http://SpiffyNetwork.com,,,,, (Having a hard time getting this one going, so for now it links to allies site),,, and

Lately I have been adding new features on Allies crochet site such as a coupon system and party registration and trying to finish Swarm Inform.  The Swarm Inform website is the one in my eye to bring in some money because i'm working on it with some guy at my work that does SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and he is going to help market and promote the site. It will be a social tool to help handle and maintain your social networks like twitter and facebook.  I am sure lots of companies will be interested in it and we have a nice layout and theme going with it.

Anyway, with our recent car purchase, our budget has been tight and I always think to myself what it would be like to get a million dollars from my websites.  This is what I would do.... Pay off all our bills and house mortage and pay back anyone that we owe money to, then I'd go out and buy $1,000 in groceries for each of my sisters and my brother and maybe $2,000 for my parents :), after that I would take my family out somewhere fun to eat like Chuck E Cheeses and go on a trip to Disney Land or Disney World.  I would then take all my friends out to eat somewhere nice, go bowling and then to a movie.  Whatever was left after that would go in our bank account.

I am interested to see what others would do, so if you happen to read this and it gets you thinking, please post in the comments what you would do with 1 million dollars.

That's funny I think about it ALMOST every night...I would Buy Jed a new Truck and Me a nice SUV. Then pay off the house. (All without anyone knowing, even Jed) I would put a big bow on Jed's truck and put it in the garage, Then I would take mom, dad, you, Jamie, and Jason to a very expensive steak house. I would then give everyone an envelop with a large sum of cash ($1000-$2000) I would go to Hawaii and pay for mom and dad to come. I would get a fence and invest in some forms and other items for Jed's concrete business, I would also finish my basement, put money in my kids account, and some in our savings. Maybe even build Jed a shop!!! Haha like I said I think about it A LOT!!!

Wow wouldn't that be great!! I would pay off my house. Put money in each of my kids savings accounts, give my siblings money and my parents and have all of us go to Disneyland for a week!! Then put the rest in savings.

If we had that much money I'd also pay off all of our bills and do some home repair, set some aside for our kids for college and whatever else. Then give other family members a share to do whatever they wanted with it. I don't know how much would be left after that, but I'd like to have a fun family vacation and whatever's left would go into saving.
