So, anyone got an android phone that wants to tell me how cool it is? Or anyone have any new scoop about androids and verizon!?!
Not much longer... Not much longer... Until then I'll keep watching, hoping, and waiting!

Well, anyway, this is about Charity's trip. She had a fun time! Grandpa fed her lots of icecream. She decided her new favorite color was orange (due to the orange creamsicles) but that didn't last long because then Grandpa introduced her to rootbeer icecream, and while her favorite color isn't brown, it's her new favorite flavor of icecream!
Tuesday morning she had to call Mommy to say Good Morning... and that's about all she said! She's not really a phone talker so she'll get on for about 30secs and then be done but it was cute that she specifically wanted to call me and say good morning :)
They took her to the park one night and sent me a bunch of pictures of her playing :) She decided Sasha wasn't too big (their German Sheperd) and she'd go outside and pet Sasha all by herself (Great Dane here we come! lol). Mom had a doctor's appointment one day and there was a basket of treats and she got a rice crispie treat, so at a doctor's appointment the next day (different doctor) she wanted to know where the treats were! lol, we might be in trouble next time we take her to the doctor!
She enjoyed calling and saying hi to daddy in the evenings when he got home from work. Though, even then it was for 30secs BUT mom and dad had to make sure they called the right phone cuz without the right picture on there she'd get mad and wouldn't talk or wouldn't believe who she was talking to! Don't you love cell phones? She's so funny sometimes. I have to do the same thing when she wants to call them, it HAS to be the right picture.
They didn't take Angel with them cuz they didn't want to deal with another dog (I thought it was a big mistake cuz Charity is so attached to Angel) but they didn't have any problems. She went to bed just fine and everything. Though, one night she did con them into letting her sleep with them :) Though, as soon as she saw Angel when she got back she had to run up and maul her :) Poor Dog, though I think Angel missed Charity more than Charity missed Angel. It was very cute.
Danielle enjoyed her alone time with Mommy and Daddy but she was still excited to see Charity when Charity got home. They didn't get here until 9:30 or so, so the excitement made it a late night for us! But we didn't mind. It was nice to have a short break and she certainly enjoyed her time away but it's nice to have her home again too!

Since I've been wanting to paint the Girl's room since we moved in, I insisted we do that room first because I knew we wouldn't do it in the end. Well, their room turned out so cute! So, here is their room!
It turned out sooo cute! And now they have a girly room! Next onto the living room and the kitchen/dining room. We're almost done with the living room so those pictures will be coming soon!
My Pot Pie
1 can corn
1 can peas/carrots
1 big can of diced potatos or 2 standard sizes (ofcourse you're welcome to cut up your own, not sure how many maybe 5?)
2 cans cream of chicken or 1 large can
1 can cream of something else
1lb of chicken cut, and cooked
4 pre-made pie crusts (makes 2 pies) or you can make your own crust
herbs to taste (I add a combo of all or some of these: basil, oregano, cajun, salt and spice, season all salt, garlic, and yeah, you get the picture :) Whatever herbs you like)
Combine all ingredients (except pie crusts of course) in a big mixing bowl. Then add to pie crusts, slit top crust. cook at 350 for about an hour. May need to broil for up to 5 mins to brown the top.

In addition to the fun bowling party, Dennis' mom needed her trees trimmed and so he decided to help her out and do it for her. Well, the neighbor saw Dennis up in the tree using the chain saw and he offered to let us use his lift. It made it a lot easier, but made a lot more work since a lot more trees could be reached! Grandpa came over to help as well. Me, I got stuck making sure the kids didn't get into any trouble. But such is the life of the Mom, right?
The First Limb to Fall (from using the lift)
A big pile of branches on the ground.
Dennis said the next day muscles hurt he didn't even know he had :) It was a lot of work but he was happy to help his mom!
