Part 6 of our love story will be coming soon. I’m in the middle of scrounging up matching outfits for all of us for family pictures. It’s hard enough getting two people to match, and now there are five of us! I don’t think we have one single picture yet with all of us in it, so I’m looking forward to getting some taken. Well, actually, I’m looking forward to having the finished pictures in my hand. Not so much the assembling of matching outfits, getting everybody dressed and groomed, attempting to make it to the studio without anybody deliberately jumping accidentally falling into a mud puddle, etc.
T is off work tomorrow (yay!). We were hoping that the twin beds we ordered for the kids would have come by now, so T could pick them up and assemble them tomorrow, but they’re not in yet, which is fine, because there are plenty of other odd jobs to do around here (including taking the air conditioner unit out of our bedroom window–now that it’s mid-October, I don’t think we’ll be needing it any more this year).
It’s actually really neat how God provided money for us to get twin beds for the kids (D.L.F. and Cupcake). They each currently sleep in a little kid tent with plenty of blankets for padding, but they are outgrowing those, so we’ve been wanting to buy beds for them. The roundabout way that we were able to buy them is that I recently won a 52″ LCD television in a sweepstakes. The sweepstakes company had the t.v. shipped to us from Wal-Mart. We decided we didn’t really need a t.v., especially one that big, so we were going to try to sell it on Craigslist, but T had the idea to take it to Wal-Mart and see if they would accept it as a return. They did–not for cash, but they gave us a gift card for the full value of the t.v.! So we were able to buy beds for the kids, mattresses, comforter and sheet sets, some curtains, some fall clothes, and other needed odds and ends.
Once again I am overwhelmed by the kindness of God as He takes care of our family.
