I can't wait to post new pics of our house, but I haven't taken any yet. But what I DID do, is put up a new link on the right side of my blog. I am walking to cure Cystic Fibrosis in memory of our friend Jeff. Please consider donating. Every dollar counts! If you would rather, and are in the area, please join our team! Click on my link and you can find all the info! Now I'm back to movie night with my little sweeties! I don't remember The Land Before Time being THIS SAD!!!!

PS, I just read back over my post and wanted to make it perfectly clear that I did not do ALL of that stuff ALONE! I had so many helpers! Big Daddy, his momma, my parents, Jarad, Ashley, Steph, Scot, John, Robbie, Bill, Millie and of course all the little ones!

Hey girl, I did not try today however, I think that the lady at
your old house was like "SHE DOES NOT LIVE HERE AND THE PHONES ARE MESSED UP" try her cell phone for crying out loud if you know her that well tone.....
We had baby girl at for strep no less...
I felt horrible not being able to help.
The only # I have at work is your home #.
I knew your mom was going out of town for a well deserved mini vaca
so I wouldnt bother.
LUV YOU and if I can do anything SORRRRRRRRY

I'm so very proud of my family! (Yes that means the Phillips family, too!). During these very sad times, we are ALL pulling together to help each other. Your Uncle Gary's family has been amazing, too! We are all in this together, along with our Lord, and we will continue to be family and TRUST! I love you, Chrissy!
