Meeting Minnie!!

As shocking as it is, since we are notoriously cheap, we bought a new car!!!!!!!!  Well, new to us anyway.  The Sorento was just falling apart, and last week when we were driving the kids for a special fun trip to ride the train at the airport, she just stopped working while we were going 75 on the beltway.  Disturbing to say the least.  So we decided to suck it up and just buy something!!

So, a mere 24 hours later, the kids were having their first ride in our new vehicle, Minnie!!  You know we like to name all of our cars, and the name should really just be a variation of the model of the car.  Josh's motorcycle was Yammy, the civic was Civvie, the Sorento was Soary, and now our new minivan is Minnie!!  Wyatt was in LOOOOOOOOVE with the name, cause he is a little bit obsessed with Mickey and Minnie right now.  We got a year old Toyota Sienna, and I am pretty much in love with it.  The kids love it too, especially the doors that open all all by themselves.  Of course, now they fight over who gets to push the button and/or pull the handle!!!  It will be so nice to bring Annie home in it!  But the poor boys are heartbroken that Annie will not be sitting between the two of them.  We had really been prepping them to have her in the middle when we thought we were keeping Soary.  I think they will get over it the first trip we take where she cries! :)

And Wyatt is especially in love with the car, cause now he gets to sit in a big boy booster seat.  He thinks he is so grown up!  So thankful for my dear sweet hubby who works so hard so we can have such a fantastic car!  Thanks honey!!!
