Happy Father's Day

When the dad in your family has everything you should buy him a newer truck, so that is what we did. We decided he needed one with a few less miles and few less melted parts. So, on Saturday we drove to Lubbock and picked up a 2005 F250 for him to enjoy. It has to park on the street for now since our other truck (we have lovingly named it "The Truck with Crust") is still in the driveway waiting for the insurance adjuster! Hope each of you had a fun and less eventful father's day weekend!!

Well, Friday evening Bryan, Timothy, and I ran a few errands and then we decided to eat dinner at Applebees. As we arrived home we were surprised to find a police car blocking the intersection to our block. We slowed down, and then noticed a fire truck in front of the house. As we turned to see what was going we see that the fire was in our driveway. Bryan's truck had caught fire while we were gone.

We are still in shock about the entire event, but we know that God was watching out for us. There was no damage to the house and my Expedition (which we bought last Friday) was not sitting beside the truck and therefore was not damaged. We are also relieved that we weren't driving the truck. I can't even imagine trying to get a family of 5 out of a burning vehicle. The neighbor took pictures while it was burning, so I may have more to share in the next few days.

Mother's Day

We spent a lovely weekend at home for Mother's Day. The kids and my wonderful husband cleaned the entire house and my children agreed to sit nicely and smile for a few pictures. It was all a mother could hope for! :)
