Well, the weatherman was right. We woke up to this yesterday a.m. :) I am happy, but the rest of the family is not too thrilled. Winter is here until April. I can handle it. :) The squirrels are getting so fuzzy and fat. Tonight is HOUSE night. Wahoo. Hope you all are having a splendid day!

Baby is 15

Yesterday was Halloween, but in our house it was something way more special. It was Baby's 15th birthday!! 15 years ago we went out just to "look at" vans to replace our little Ford Festiva. We had one precious little girl and another baby was on the way. We needed something bigger. I REALLY, REALLY wanted a Dodge Caravan. I had driven them, loved the way they drove, the way they looked and the room inside. Travis was reading the newspaper and saw that a Ford dealer in Portland had a few Aerostars on sale. I told him that I would "look and drive", but I wanted a Caravan. We drove down and took a test drive and went in to buy our new Baby. I LOVED the size, the color, how high up I felt when I was in her.......I WANTED THIS VAN! We drove away in our new van, leaving our little faithful Festiva for someone else to cherish.

Today Baby has 198,500 miles on her. She's been to CA, OR, WA, ID, MT, WY, MN, WI, IL, SD, and ND. She's helped moved friend's households. She's carted kids to soccer games, horse lessons, violin lessons, school, shopping. She is our faithful, old girl and I still love her. I will drive her til her wheels literally fall off. I know, I'm strange, but you all pretty much knew that already. :) tee hee
