Andrew and me finalizing the deal on my new Expedition!
Andrew has a bumpy ride back to Abilene in my old Mazda!
New porch at Meem's
The insulated roof is supposed to make it cooler in the summer!
Ty and I at a UT baseball game. Hook 'em horns!

So, I'm still getting used to this blogging thing and sometimes forget to update it!!! Just so yall know, our move date got pushed back to March 15th, so the movers didn't come on Feb 28th. It's kinda nice b/c now I have more time to pack and sort through things. It's fun going through all of our photo albums and childhood keepsakes. I've looked through Learning to Lead and Kadesh photos and notes (which is fun cause there are pics of lots of yall in elementary school, etc).

So the latest in our lives is that we got a new car! Well, actually it feels like a huge ship to me! I went from a small Mazda 626 to a HUGE Ford Expedition! I'm still getting used to parking the thing! I'm getting lots of exercise by parking at the back of the parking lot. I've posted pics of my brother (the car salesman) when he drove to Lampassas to do the whole car exchange. For those of you in Abilene, he is working at the Chrystler/Jeep lot on South 1st. Go look him up if you want a new car! He won't try to sell you something you don't want/ can't afford! Congrats to him as he just got a promotion and will be the assistant manager at a new lot opening up in Abilene!!

Also, Ty's grandma (Meem) got a new patio cover put on her lake house in Marble Falls. I posted a pic for the family so you can see the new improvement! Are the Bubbies and wives still up for Labor Day (perhaps in Marble Falls) this year??

Hey Charis and Ty,

I really like the new car. Charis, the next time you go for a ride, please turn on the seat warmer for me!

I really enjoyed your visit at Sing Song- I wish we could do it some more before you leave, but I guess blogging will have to do. Check out my blog- I finally updated it.

Love, Beth Purcell

Hey Charis & Ty!! This is Tracey (Harper). Congratulations on the baby-on-the-way! That is so exciting!! And also on the move to Tampa. Brian and I lived in Tampa for about 2 1/2 years, and I would love to send you guys an email with any info you might need to get plugged in. Shoot me an email at

I totally know how it is to move around AND be pregnant. We've done it twice!! Good luck with the move - Charis, make the movers do everything for you!!! No lifting anything heavy!!!
