Be careful what you wish for....

Look at Caitlin and Ian driving off in his brand new truck.

It really has not been that long since they were sitting in a stroller together.

While we are on the subject of cars,

just have a look at mine

Molly, Caitlin,Leah and Kelsey came running up to the house, all excited!

"Come look! Close your eyes! We have a surprise for you!"

It seems that they had decorated a friends'car for a football game a while back...

and I said, "How cool, I wish someone would decorate my car"

Apparantly I should have said, "How cool, I wish someone would paint my kitchen"

It reminds me of the time when Mariah was bitty and I said, "What is this colored all over my bedroom wall?"

"I did it,"she exclaimed proudly, "It says, I love you, Mommy."

I painted around it.

I drove around town proudly with my decorated car, too.

It would have been okay if they'd also filled up the gas tank!
