A Day On The Ranch (August 7, 2010)

Catching Up! **4th of July 2010**

Wowzas! It sure has been a long long time! After taking a years sabbatical I have a lot of catching up to do. Much has happened in a years time and with our newest addition Charles Jude McDowell arriving in less than 3 months I better get to it.

Last 4th of July we spent the day in Atlanta doing things All American. Our 1st stop was the American Girl Store and then off to the ball park for a Braves game. That day was such a blast; I would love to do the exact thing this year!

Goodbye My Sweet Home

For years I could not wait until we moved from this house. When we bought this house it was perfect for just me and Richie, but soon became way too cramped for our growing family. With two cats, a dog and a toddler running around the walls felt as if they were closing in!

What were we complaining about? That was the most perfect house ever! Minus the train outside our backdoor of course. The images of the day we moved in and the day we brought Caroline home from the hospital flash in my mind. I miss that house and apparently so does Caroline. She likes to tell me at least once a week that she misses her old house and wants to go back. I have to say I am a bit home sick too. I wonder if the doctor has a medication for my sickness?

The thing I miss most about our sweet old home is actually not a thing, but a person. Christian was our neighbor across the street. I think about him every day and I am just heart broken he is not just a street away. I love and miss him dearly! Everyone loves and misses him very very much!!!!

Saying Goodbye To The Baby Furniture

Wow!!!! Have you guys missed me? It has been a wild three months. Where in the world do I begin and how can a catch up on all my posts? I have my work cut out for me that is for sure.

So this post really saddens me. To be honest I had completely forgotten about this picture until I started flipping through the countless pictures we have taken in the past three months. I don't know whether to boo hoo or kick myself for selling the baby furniture. Oh well..Whats done is done. We had a great three year run and I will miss you dearly.

New Addition

Our new addition to Caroline's room is here! Hope you like your new home. Don't worry little chair; it will start looking a whole lot better in that room soon. Covered head board and custom bedding will be home soon to keep you company. I will be picking up your new friend "bedside table" Friday at the Greyhound station.

Pray For Sweet Molly!!!!

Please keep sweet Molly in your prayers. Molly's previous mommy neglected this sweet angel for years. Poor Molly lost her leg many years ago and was left to suffer, limp and live life as a gimp. Finally after years of neglect she was adopted by a new mommy and was immediately admitted into the American Doll Hospital. As we speak Molly is undergoing a procedure that will help her to be a little girl again. She will no longer be ridiculed and live in shame. This shows that miracles do come true and good is really out there. Maury, the love you are showing Molly is unconditional. You should have a street or holiday named after you!!! Hope you two are very happy with each other.
