Four years ago....

She was born on Thursday, June 29, 2006.  She weighed 8 lbs., 10 oz., and was 20 inches long.

She found her thumb at four months old.  She still has it, even though she's four today.  :)

She. loves. sweets.  The cliche "Sweet as sugar" definitely applies in her case.

She loves to smile and laugh.

Her curls can be a bit unruly at times.

She has a keen fashion sense.

She is our one and only princess in a house full of princes and we love her with all our hearts!

Happy fourth birthday, Chloe!

Words of Wisdom

"If the ultimate, the hardest, cannot be asked of me; if my fellows hesitate to ask it and turn to someone else, then I know nothing of Calvary love."  ~ Amy Carmichael

A Letter to DirecTV

Dear DirecTV,

It's been four months now without you and we are doing just fine.  We didn't even have withdrawals from you like we thought we would!  The only thing we've missed a little bit is Fox News, and that's usually depressing anyway, so we're still okay.  And the extra fifty bucks in our bank account is super sweet.

So please tell your customer service people to stop calling us.  Tell them to believe us when we say we haven't switched to another provider.  That we discontinued our service with you because we simply don't want television service in our home.  I'm pretty sure that one lady swallowed her gum when I told her that.  Oops.  She sort of choked up and started laughing rather hysterically if you ask me. Apparently she doesn't hear that often.

To be honest, we are just plain tired of your cursing, your vulgar language, immodesty and nudity, your dysfunctional families, your homosexuality promoting, God-hating programs.

Please believe us when we say we want more time for our family, for our marriage, and for God.  Please don't try to entice us with free service or premium channels like HBO and Showtime.  They have more filthiness than the other stuff, so why would we want that?

I know it sounds crazy to not have television service, but we're crazy like that. Rebels, living life on the edge.  The edge without TV. 

Again, I repeat, please stop calling us.  You've called three times now and each time you've received the same answer.  We are satisfied without you.  You are wasting your time.  Kindof like we were wasting ours.


A now satisfied use-to-be customer
