Twins update and the search for a vehicle

We had another checkup/doctor appointment last week to check on Crystal and the girls. Everything looked great and the girls are right where they are supposed to be at this time. Each of them weighs about one pound a piece now! It amazes me how fast they grow. The babies already have everything! All they are doing now is getting bigger..... :)

We also sold the Jeep last week. Obviously with Samuel still in a car seat and two more coming a Jeep Wrangler is not big enough for three kids all in car seats so we knew we were gonna need a bigger vehicle. I had the Jeep posted on the internet for sale for a few weeks but never did get any emails or calls about it. A couple of weekends ago we went riding and looking for another vehicle and while out we decided to stop by Carmax just to see what they would offer us for the Jeep. They offered us a decent price and we decided to take it. So now we're down to one vehicle but, fortunately, we were able to borrow a vehicle from my father-in-law. Thanks to the help of my father it looks like he may have found us a car that should work nicely for our expanding family, there are just a few kinks that need to be worked out for the deal to close. Hopefully before too much longer we will have our next ride and be able to haul everyone around comfortably in it!
