A Family Home Evening to Remember

Opening Song:

Lesson: money management

Activity: driving to a car dealership in Bloomington to pick up the newest member of our family. (And cutting the biggest check of my life, so far... fun!)

Treat: It's official, we're a minivan family! (2005 Sienna Ltd... thanks to Brian's crafty haggling). It's been a loooong time in coming, and it's quite the step up from our 2-door Celica convertible that has seen better days. Our little car has served us well, but I am thrilled beyond measure not to have to toss my kids into their child seats anymore, to have a place to set my purse, and not to have my knees next to my ears when I'm in the passenger seat.


Bring on the road trips!!!!!!!!

Oh, and the baby!

I love the swagger wagon! I am seriously so impressed you guys stuck with that itty bitty car for so long! Enjoy your luxurious space :)

I must say you had me going a second about the new family member who sleeps in the garage. I thought could it be??? Has Laura succumbed to social pressure & bought a...DOG??? Shoulda known better!

Yay!!! I am very happy for you! And for the example you've set for me!
