Goodbyes

Well, yesterday we said adios to our beloved car of the last seven plus years. Despite the fact that our girls were enamored with the thought of a new vehicle when I was pregnant with Genna, they were bothered to drive off in a new one last night. And I admit that I was a bit sad to say goodbye, as well. We got our Impala when Shanan was 10 months old, and she will be eight in another month! Lots of memories! As we cleaned out our car last night, you would've thought we'd been living in it for the last while...treasures everywhere! Shanan lamented the fact that it's difficult to say goodbye to a car; they're difficult to hug & kiss. ;) Nonetheless, they both kissed their seats, Steve took a final picture, and we transferred the junk to the new family car, a Chevy Traverse. Many new memories lurk on the horizon, and I'm pretty sure we won't outgrow this vehicle! As I told Alyssa, we can have six kids & still fit, lol, although I'm pretty sure that won't be happening unless there's triplets in our future!

Congratulations! I think you guys are more sentimental about your car than anyone I know.

I miss your blogging -- especially on a blog so well designed. Surely you've had stuff happening since January (hint hint!)
