home, sweet home

Well, we said goodbye to our precious home this week. We packed up the remainder of our things on Tuesday. As the movers carried out the last of our furniture, I cried at the empty rooms left behind. Even writing this now, brings tears to my eyes. I can still remember the ice-cream party that we had the weekend we moved in. And I can picture little Samson trying his best to jump the ledge that led to our back porch. It seems like just yesterday, I found that perfect chandelier for Addi's new nursery. It was such a good house to us. I laugh when I think about all the complaining that I've done over the years. How I hated the fact that the washer and dryer were in the garage. And that the closets and bathrooms were WAY too small. Sharing our bathroom on Sunday morning always led to an interesting conversation on the way to church. Now I sit back and think about how much the Lord blessed us in that house. The precious memories we have of where our family first began. I'm so happy and so sad at the same time. Here are some snapshots from over the years...
July, 2004: Our "hired" help on moving day. The Brewer's and Cox's.
Spring of 2005: Our little buddy's routine bath. Man, I miss him!
Spring of 2006: The new landscape. The handy work of Mr. Danner.
Christmas 2007: Just 2 days before Addison's debut.
January 08: The week we brought Addi home. Ben was a natural.
Dec 08: Our snow day. Just 2 weeks before moving to College Station.

fun with the fridge

Here's another typical night at the Wall's.
Who needs toys when you have an ice maker?

baseball buddies

We went to the A&M baseball game tonight. It was their season opener and the Ags are ranked #1 in the Nation so it was pretty exciting.
The game was sold out, so we stood with the students in left field, which was fine with Addi. She had plenty of room to run around and be her independent self. She was a trooper, considering the cold wether. We made it through 5 innings before calling it a night.

hide & seek

Addi loves it when Ben gets home from work. They go for walks, read books & play hide & seek. They were having fun tonight!

change is addicting

So, I chopped my hair off!! I've been wanting to do it for years, but just now built up the courage. I guess with all of the changes we've been going through these last few months, it just felt like the right thing to do. I also had to get new glasses last week. Poor Ben came home from California to a new woman! He told me yesterday in church that the new look is growing on him. Thank you Lord! :)
