Maybe You Can Go Back Again...

 Many years (and babies ago), a little blue house came into the family. First Auntie & Uncle lived there with baby cousins. It was a magical place!
Then, this family moved in with 3 little hunks and one in the 'oven'! The sky goes on forever and ever, stars abound in the millions, and the snowflakes fall like fairy dust. Along came a Chicklet too. 
Magical days.

Then, life goes on, kids get bigger, parents need help, so this family moved to the desert. Almost 10 years ago! This house was sold to a sweet couple with a little girl. Their life was turned upside down and they had to sell it and move on.  They sold it to a young couple who  were did some nice remodeling. But they gave their lives to the world and they didn't last in this little house. Over the years, this family has seen the price of the house skyrocket, then nosedive. It came down soooo amazingly low, that this family talked & decided to investigate! Grandma made an offer, the bank accepted, and McGyver and I, along w/ Hunk #4 and Chicklet drove out to the mountains to  check out the little blue house. 

The poor little blue house has seen some hard times. It needs lots of love and attention. We are praying about if we can give it the love and attention it needs. It certainly needs this McGyver! 

The picture below is the view out the kitchen window.

This is the house Auntie & Uncle built themselves. It's magical too!

Tonight we sat outback in the hot tub and stared at the gazillion bazillion stars!  It makes us realize how little we are and how BIG our GOD is!
