Joy Ride

Ok, so  I am just a TEENY bit excited over here!  For starters, Henry's fever broke last night after MUCH prayer!  Good thing God is in the healing and restoring business, spiritually and physically.  :-)

This is what 'Hank' looks like on a normal, healthy day.  He is such a goof and I was SO happy that he woke up this morning looking for food and a truck.  BOTH VERY GOOD signs!!!   lol

Notice how one gun just isn't enough...I think I see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6!!!  guns!  :-) 

Remember how I told you that we weren't able to go to the library on Saturday?   Well, today is the day for me to keep  my end of the bargain.  The kids DEFINITELY did not forget my promise!  lol
Not only am I excited to get some fresh air, but our trips to the library, thrift store, and piano lessons are definitely going to be considered a Joy Ride!  
Guess what???  

On Friday we got a VAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm SO excited, can you tell?!?!

Our family has been praying for MONTHS now about getting a larger vehicle.  Let me rewind...last year some dear people GAVE us a car.  It was amazing!  We didn't have a car at that point and didn't see one in the near future, barring a miracle.  Bottom line...we really needed transportation.  One evening, we got a phone call from some awesome people saying that God had told them(the husband) to call us and see if we would be interested in a car they had.  WHY, yes!  It was really exciting to us to see God use them to bless us and it was even more of a blessing knowing that they were willing to heed His command.  Totally inspiring!
Anyway, we still have the car and always will(until it dies).  It is a GREAT car and has special meaning as well, however, we  really felt like it was important to have something that would fit our family(of six) LEGALLY and the need had come up for a second vehicle due to my husband travelling for a job.  Enter...GOD!  The details are all so amazing about how it came about, but we ended up browsing selections of vans online within our budget.  We knew what we could afford and didn't want something fancy.  We test drove three and picked the second one.  It was PERFECT(for us)!

Now I(we) am the VERY proud owner of a 2002 Honda Odyssey!!!

Nice and clean...just the way I like things!(Don't worry, it won't last long!)
It's like the saying, "I can only please one person a day...."  Yeah...I can only handle my OCD so much....my house stays clean, but unfortunately my cars suffer!  lol
I am going to try MY HARDEST though.  

It even has a DVD player!  The kids were SO excited!  :-) 
Totally NOT why we bought this one!  Just a bonus.

Look at all those seats!  Just envision happy, smiling faces bobbing in the back.   Ahhhhhhh....PLENTY of space!

I hope no one thinks that this is a 'bragging' post!  I just think that it is really fun to count your blessings and share them, too!   Off to our Joy Ride!
