Recently we have made some purchases and some changes. I feel so blessed to have the life I do. Of course it is rough at times but you have to take the good with the bad and make it the best possible. We bought a new vehicle, FINALLY! We were driving around just browsing, which we have been doing for almost 2 years now, and we saw a Lincoln Aviator. It was the first vehicle Eric and I actually BOTH loved! We went to the car lot the next day and there were 2 of them and they both had sold, so we were a day late. :( We kept our eyes open for the next few days and finally we found another one at a nearby lot. Dh went right away and test drove it and bought it. A week later we got to pick it up! we love all the extra space with the kids and they love not being cramped.
Also we went yesterday and got the kids a new set of bunk beds, with the staircase and built in dresser, new mattresses, and new bedding. They love it! Poor Presley hated her daybed and would end up sleeping on the floor every night, so we decided they need to move up from crib mattresses and toddler beds and into a "big kid" bed. Landon got Thomas the train bedding on the top bunk and Presley picked out Tinker Bell (she calls it her princesses) bedding for the bottom. They did awesome last night, for their first night, and slept so great!
