What is Love

So I got sick of packing and I decided to read my E-mail. A friend of mine sent me one in which people had asked little kids what they thought love was. And I wanted to share a few with you.
'When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn't bend over and paint her toenails anymore. So my grandfather does it for her all the time, even when his hands got arthritis too. That's love.' age8
'When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different.You just know that your name is safe in their mouth.' age4
'Love is what makes you smile when you're tired.' age4
'Love is like a little old woman and a little old man who are still friends even after they know each other so well.' age6
'Love is when Mommy gives Daddy the best piece of chicken.' age5
'I know my older sister loves me because she gives me all her old clothes and has to go out and buy new ones.' age4
'When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down and little stars come out of you.' age7
'Love is when Mommy sees Daddy on the toilet and she doesn't think it's gross.' age6
And this last one is love through a childs perspective.....
A four year old child whose next door neighbor was an elderly gentleman. His wife had recently passed away. Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old gentleman's yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there. When his Mother asked what he had said to the neighbor, the little boy said,'Nothing, I just helped him cry'

Moving Update

First off I have to congradulate my wonderful little Gavin boy on getting his first tooth!!! YAY Gavin! (pictures to come later today...or late tonight)

Now on to the moving stuff. So we had a 16ft rental truck reserved for $500 most places it was six hundred somthin so we thought that was a pretty good deal. And we'd just get rid of whatever we didn't need. Then today I got onto the sight again and I found the bigest truck for $159!!!!! So I got it reserved. 5 min later I decided to go back to the sight just to see what the price was...and it had jumped to $680!?!?! But I did change the drop off spot...I don't know if that had anything to do with it, but I'm sure glad I reserved that truck!

So as far as we know, we pick up the 26ft truck here in KC on the 17th a 7:30. Load it all day then head straight down to Springfield. Stay the night at my parents house and leave our car and the kids. Go to TX get our new ward to help us unload. Stay the night in our new home, and head to springfield the next day to drop off the truck and pick up our kids. OH boy. Thats one heck of a week!

TX picture

So this is what I dredged up from google maps...only when I typed in my address I was all the way down the street. I had to use the virtual arrows to find my actuall house. Oh well they tell you the address are aproximate anyway. Anyhow...don't ask about the sidewalk....I have no idea...and neither do our neighbors who have lived on that street for 40years. When we actually get there, I'll take some pictures of the house so you can see the inside. The only thing thats different now, is the flagpole is no longer there, and the cars in the driveway aren't there either. Other than that it looks a lot like it's picture. I can't wait to give you all a virtual tour in a few weeks!!!
