The Smoke Has Cleared, I Think...

Well, we started moving on Friday. Tough stuff. Believe me, if you've never moved before, that's good. Period. Here's how the days were like in my mind:

Day 1 - Whoo!!!!!!!! Let's do this thing!!!!!! I could move five million boxes today!!! I could move an elephant, or a car, or a house!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I've been trying to be tougher, and now is my chance. I can help Mommy and Daddy. I can do anything!!!!!! We're gonna be the best movers, EVER!!

Day 2 - Wow, where'd all the people go that were helping us. Do I have to get up at 6:00? Oh man, well, I guess I'll help. Uggh!

Day 3 -Yes!!! We're almost done. Please, my arms and back are telling me to stop moving boxes. They told me they wouldn't like me anymore.

Day 4 -One more day of moving, and I think I'll die. Do we have to set up beds today? Uggggggggghhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I HATE moving!!!!!

Day 5 - Where's that one box, with the porcelain dolls in it. Do you know where the people put the box of legos. Man, why can't that person read? This box says: Girl's Room, and they put it in the Study. Oh wait, I think that was me.... Umm, I mean, That poor person, some one gave them the wrong label.... WHERE'd everything GO! I can't find ANYTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, that was our week. You can tell, we had a wonderful week! :)

Man's Best Friend

For all you dog-lovers:

Man's Best Friend

Author: Timothy P Vreeland

My friend is loyal and eager to please
I'd sit in my chair, his head on my knees
I'd stroke his back and pat him on the side
The things he would do filled my heart with pride
He watched my house and my family too
He was always there to look over you
Never my house did I have to lock
A bark and a growl at the very first knock

Unconditional love is what he gave to me
From the look in his eye it was all you could see
Sometimes I'd yell "be quiet, lay down"
He'd lay in the corner and not make a sound
As he grew old and couldn't get around
I forgot how he'd greet me with a leap and a bound

Soon came the time he could no longer stand on his own
I picked him up and carried him to see God's home
On the way there I remembered all the good years
I looked at my friend through all of my tears

I told him I loved him
Soon the pain would be gone
I did the hardest thing
I ever have done

I went the last mile
I was there to the end
I know now why they called him
"Man's Best Friend"

What is your favorite breed?

We're A-movin'

Well, the Sisters 4 are a bit sad to say that our family is moving. We're moving from a wonderful house that we've lived in for 14 years to another soon-to-be wonderful house that we will hopefully be able to build many more special and precious memories in. Here are some pictures that we shot of a few of the precious memories we've shared. Tell us what you think:

God has definitely blessed us with a wonderful place to live, hasn't He?
