Another One Bites the Dust

Well, a few weeks ago hubby was in a wreck. He's completely fine, but it totalled the car. He was the third car of a four car pile-up. So, we found ourselves, yet again looking for a new car. Can you believe it?

We went from this:


Can you tell the difference? Yeah, me neither. Actually, we had a 2002 Honda Accord Coupe and now we have a 2007. That's the difference. Our's is a dark grey, fyi.

All in all, it worked out. It kinda sucks having to shell out money that we weren't planning on spending, but it could have been so much worse, that we feel really blessed!

We ended up taking advice from Greg, Rochelle's hubby, and looking on eBay for the car. We found a GREAT deal, but the car was in Houston. My husband had no more time off this year, and they were closed the coming Thanksgiving weekend. So, my parents and I took the little one while a friend watched the other two. Boy, was that a disaster! Baby screamed the whole way there, practically the whole time we were in Houston and the whole way back. She was so loud, that I didn't even really notice the sweet ride we had just purchased! (Which didn't go over so well when hubby kept calling to ask about the car.) So, that is why hubby bought me the beautiful pink roses for a thank-you. I've taught him well.

My Camera's Fixed! Yippee!!!!

Ok, after months, and months, and months of having a broken camera, and putting off getting it fixed, and bugging friends to get copies, and hoping that people were capturing crucial moments of my children's lives, I finally have a camera that works! Yea! But here's the awful part: we were just using the wrong batteries! Can you believe it? Apparently, the cheap kind don't cut it. (Boy, do I have to invest in rechargables!) Bummer!
Happy, happy kids on the way home with the camera! They missed it as much as I did!

But, the good news is that I've been going crazy taking pictures like I've never taken pictures before! So, here's some pics from Thanksgiving. The centerpiece turned out a little more wedding-y than fall-like, but it was still fun. Hubby bought me the roses as a thank-you gift. (Hmm...maybe I should post about that, as well!)

It snowed for about ten minutes and the kids had a blast!

And this is the baby shutting the door on all us crazy people out in the snow!

And here's just a cute little charm that I picked-up. It says, "Moody Chick". Pretty perfect, huh? Tee hee. See, told ya I was picture-crazy!

This Blogger's Been Experiencing Emotional Difficulties

So, it's been a hard few weeks. I won't get into all of it (ok, maybe someday I will), but let's just say that I've been narrowing my field of activities so that I can emotionally cope. Blogging went by the wayside, as it probably always will when I'm trying to avoid my responisibilites by avoiding emails! :O (Now you all know my secret! ;) )

But, we had a great Halloween! We went Trunk or Treating with my Mom while my Dad stayed at our place to pass out candy. Here's some pics:

Here's the back of my oldest daughter's cape, which I made. I have to say that I'm pretty proud of it. (Pat, pat, pat)

And here's a couple just cause they're so darn cute!

Thanks, Julianne, for all the great pics!
