Wordless Wednesday....


On the first day, God created the dog and said, "Sit all day by the door of your house and bark atanyone who comes in or walks past. For this, I will give youalife spanof twenty years."The dog said, "That's a long time to be barking. How aboutonly ten years and I'll give you back the other ten?"So God agreed......On the second day, God created the monkey and said,"Entertain people, do tricks, and make them laugh. Forthis, I'll give you a twenty-year life span." Themonkey said, "Monkey tricks for twenty years? That's apretty long time to perform. How about I give you back ten likethe dog did?"And God agreed...... Onthe third day, God created the cow and said, "You must gointo the field with the farmer all day long and suffer underthe sun, have calves and give milk to support the farmer'sfamily. For this, I will give you a life span of sixtyyears."The cow said, "That's kind of a tough life you want me tolive for sixty years. How about twenty and I'll give back theother forty?"And God agreed again...... On the fourth day, God created humans and said, "Eat,sleep, play, marry and enjoy your life. For this, I'll give youtwenty years."But the human said, "Only twenty years? Could you possiblygive me my twenty, the forty the cow gave back, the ten themonkey gave back, and the ten the dog gave back; that makeseighty, okay?""Okay," said God. "You asked for it."So that is why for our first twenty years, we eat, sleep, playand enjoy ourselves. For the next forty years, we slave in thesun to support our family. For the next ten years, we do monkeytricks to entertain the grandchildren. And for the last tenyears, we sit on the front porch and bark at everyone.

Life has now been explained to you.

Whirlwind of updates....

I have not posted anything in a while because things have been pretty crazy around the Wilson house! I thought after all of these weddings were over things would slow down and Fall would begin with the calmness of the season as usual, but things are as hectic as usual, which is fine, we are young and it keeps us on our toes. I feel closer to Luke than ever with a number of things we have been going through together... We have experienced some very hard things within the first year and a half of our marriage and for that I am grateful, It made me realize that we are stronger than I know and nothing can break us,nothing.
Well the Cards let us down again this year... We made it to the play offs but in our first series against the Dodgers we lost the first THREE games, we were especially disappointed because we had game four tickets! :( Bummer!
This weekend we are having some friends over for a makeshift late housewarming party.... more or less an excuse to get together, have a bonfire and hang out. We are really excited to see some good friends, I am making some yummy food, and just to relax with everyone!
Last year Luke and I decided we would get an ornament each year that meant something to us and something we have went thru together that year, Last year at Cabelas I found these super cute Smores ornaments, (if you know Luke and I you know we both LOVE smores, we have them as desert made in the microwave on a regular basis) The ornaments are so cute and they are all dressed up differently, well last year I got us the bride and groom one. Today my friend Leslie sent me an email and it had this picture in it. She knows me so well, it put a huge smile on my face, So I had to post!
Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend, and maybe if we are all lucky it will stop raining for a couple days! I know quite a few kiddos that have been anxiously waiting to get to that pumpkin patch!

Investment Property for Sale

Hello everyone!

I wanted to spread the word that Luke and I have an investment property that we are currently looking to sell. It is a 2 family unit, that is currently filled and the monthly rent payments on it are $550 and $500. With both units filled you will start to make money right away. The electric, plumbing, water heaters, heat, and a/c have all been updated. Luke and I have paperwork that can help you with contracts, tenants, etc. It is located at Potomac 63118. We have it listed at 106,000, but this is negotiable, along with negotiating closing costs and things like that. If you or anyone you may know might be interested, please give me a call.
If you could spread the word, and forward along to your colleagues and friends, it would be much appreciated.
