"Maddie" was our latest pet turtle. Katie and Melissa pooled their money for her and mom bought the food and heat lamp. So, we had our turtle, a Mississippi Mud turtle, for about 12 days, when it decided to jump(it had to have jumped to get out of the big bucket we had it in) and get away. We posted signs around the neighborhood for "lost turtle Maddie" but haven't seen her return. Melissa prayed for her safety tonight--she's been gone since Thursday. We are sad but moving on over here. I don't even have a picture because I hadn't even taken one yet! OOOPS! Turtles can return to their home and God is bigger than anything, so we have hope still, even if she doesn't come back--we will serve the Lord and enjoy Alex, our fish that can't go anywhere!

Well, we celebrated Mark's b-day in Houston a week before it happen, but Mimer's camera has all of those pictures, b/c I forgot my camera! So, you can see half of the b-day celebration. We celebrated on his b-day-October 8th and he was sooooo happy all day that it was his birthday! Even when he wasn't opening presents, he felt pretty special. It was fun to watch! Mark loves Thomas(his Houston cake) and Cars(his Plano cake)! We decorated it with the cars that he loves. His sisters bought(with their own moola!) the Chic car that Mark wanted so much, so we let him open that one in the morning, so we could use it on the cake!
