Our first pets-Chomper, Fancy, and Rosie. Our wonderful neighbors and dear friends, the Sniders, gave us their aquarium. We had fun getting it set up and picking out goldfish. The kids are doing great learning the responsibility of having a pet.

"Some friends hear what you say
True friends listen to what you say
Best friends listen to what you don't say"
That's the kind of friend Stephanie is. She moved far far away to Idaho this summer.
How blessed I am to have such a friendship that made it so hard to say good-bye! Here's us sharing a fun dinner at BD's Mongolian BBQ.

School Days

Our neighbors-different neighbors (we have GREAT neighbors) gave Abby some hand-me-downs which included these American Girl PJ's. She was so excited because she already had the doll PJ's to match!

Carl and Caleb painting the floor in the Garage. And yes- the garage usually does looks this organized.

1. Love the music!
2. I am coveting Abby's cool socks.
3. Love the beautiful cowgirl look - you would be very "hip" here, girlfriend!
4. One could eat off the floor of that garage! WOW!
5. Why are we matching in that picture? Great minds think alike, you know! Pink is HOT and we know it. Obviously. Style oozes from our pores...but I digress...
6. Tears in my eyes - that you for that goodbye tribute! Still listening, you know, even from here.
7. Here's to OCTOBER GNO!

Love you!

Janie, Just wanted to tell you that I was thinking about and praying for you and family today. You are all a blessing in my life. I am praying that God is abundantly blessing you and your family! God is good!!!! He knows just what we need and when we need it. It is hard to fathom just how much He loves us and the blessings that He bestows upon us is just amazing!! I hope your week has been great!
