It's About Time.....

...For this roller coaster of a week to finally be over! So, I have to put in a few updates real fast. I went five days trying to figure out how to get money to get gas and formula and the things that my little family needs, since my wallet had disappeared on Monday. I thought I finally had it figured out. I was going to call Walmart and see if they would cash a check for me, or even put it on a gift card, since they knew the whole story and I didn't have any ID yet. So, Friday morning, I got up and showered and called in to talk to a manager. As soon as I asked, the manager goes, well this is your lucky day (which I found a little ironic being Friday the 13th, but hey.....), someone found your wallet around one this morning and turned it in. WOO HOO! The cash was missing, but everything else is there. I figure someone else needed the $40 more than I did, and I'm just grateful to have my ID's, my social security card and my temple recommend back. I guess it was out on the ground in a cart corral near a trash can. I started crying when I got it back, and thanked my Father in Heaven more times than I could count. It is still a bit of a pain since I had cancelled my debit cards and stuff, but oh well. I'm just SO thankful that someone found it and turned it in.
So Friday, my friend Erica and I headed up to Dayton to go to the Air Force base (mostly just because I can) and to a mall to do a little shopping. It was so nice to be in a place with something besides a Walmart. We had lots of fun in Dayton, and some yummy food too. We LOVE Steak 'n' Shake!

Then, today I went down to Cincinnatie and saw my friend Janelle. We met in German class at Sycamore High School. She has a little boy now, Kyle, that is almost one. He is so cute. We took the three kids and went down the the new chidren's museum at the old Union Terminal. There are SO many fun things for them to do and play with. The girls had a blast, especially at the water works part of the exhibit where they got to play in lots of water. It was so much fun!

I realize this has been a lot of pictures, but the last several posts haven't had any so it was about time for an update. I hope you have enjoyed my cute girls as much as I do. Oh yeah, then to top off the rest of the week, I was sitting in the Wendy's drive thru tonight and thought I had put the car in park to make Alyssa a bottle, since she was screaming in the back seat. Anyway, apparently it wasn't in park and I rolled forward into the car in front of me. ARG! It didn't do any damage to their car, it was a Suburban...unfortunately their trailer hitch punched a small hole in my front bumper, but I'm just glad again that no one was hurt. I will finish this off with a few more pictures of the girls. My friend that I'm staying with, Erica, babysat a puppy the other night and my girls had a hayday, especially Hailey, so that is when these were taken. Take care and have a great day!

I'm so glad you found your wallet! Even with the loss of $40. It could have been much worse!

Alyssa is so big - she doesn't look like her sister to me for some reason! But of course she is still so stinkin' adorable.

I'm jealous about the Children's Museum. I guess they FINALLY had the grand opening of the one here in Phoenix but I'm waiting to here some reports on how it is before I check it out.

That's awesome that someone found your wallet & turned it in. That's a HUGE blessing for you, even though you already cancelled your cards. What a good way to take the $40 bucks that were taken...someone else just needed it more, apparently.

OK, so now how do I hook my blog to yours?

I miss Cincinnati! My Parents moved to Colorado, so I haven't been back in almost two years!
