I Survived!!

Everything went well and I made it through the week! It was actually quite quiet and I got some work done that has been lying around for a while.

Larry and I have been looking at cars the last few weeks trying to decide if we wanted to buy new or used. A while ago I posted that we had been looking at the Ponti@c V!be and fell in love with it; so we went to test drive one and kinda’ liked it but wanted to look at some other options as well. While at another dealership Larry saw a nice looking vehicle and wanted to test-drive it … so we did … and we LOVED IT!!!! The sales man (Steven) let us bring it home for the weekend to test it out.

Here is a peek at it:

(I will post more pictures if we seal the deal!)

We just got home from taking it back to the dealership and we have one more think to check before we make out final decision … INSURANCE, YUCK, but hopefully it won’t be too bad and we will have a nice “new” Chrysler PAC!F!CA in our driveway later this week!!!

I would love to have comments from anyone that owns one or knows someone that owns one, just to know their opinion of the vehicle after having it for a while.

Have a great week all!

Below is a video of a song Steven had written it is called "Cinderella". This is a song that was written about his 2 youngest girls. After the song Steven Curtis Chapman shares the inspiration behind the lyrics of this song.

My heart has been so broken since hearing the news, Such a horible tragedy. I pray that God will comfort the Chapman family during this difficult time. Our greatest sympathy is extended to the Chapmans.

Secret Revealed

Last week we received our secret pal gift in the mail, it was so well worth the wait! What an amazing package of gifts we received! In the picture you can see the cutest pair of ladybug jammies and a stuffed ladybug too. I have decided that the stuffed ladybug deserves a spot on my desk at work so I can see it every day. Larry absolutely loved, loved, loved the Footprints plaque. The books are super and we were very happy to add them to our ever-growing collection.

Our secret pal revealed herself this time and I was so excited to see that Norma was my secret pal! Norma was the secret pal that we bought for in our very first exchange. Thank you so very much for all the thought and time you spent buying us just the perfect gift each and every exchange. I appreciated all the small details of personalized handmade cards and lovely wrapping paper. It was certainly a pleasure getting to know you during this exchange and I hope we will stay in contact.

Norma, I know you are dealing with some very difficult things right now. You are in my thoughts often and I pray that you can find peace as time passes. Take care and keep in touch.

Introducing Tempelton!

Saturday Larry & I went to our full day of PRIDE training. This session was especially interesting and I felt like I am definitely on the right track with all of my reading and research about attachment and bonding. Right from the very start of this adoption process we were told to read and learn as much as we could get our hands on about this topic. We only have 4 more evening sessions left and then we will be all finished the PRIDE training.

Yesterday was a beautiful sunny day. Larry cleaned our cars while I did garden/yard work. I love getting all the summer furniture and decorations back out, it just seems to bring our yard back to life. We also refilled all of our hummingbird feeders but as of today I still haven’t caught sight of any. While I was working in the garden I had a visitor hop by so of course I had to get my camera and snap a picture of him.
