Out With The Old, In With The New

As we celebrated the completion of 2012 and welcomed 2013, we decided to do it with style. 

Say hello to the newest member of our family.  We are now the proud owners of a 2007 Ford Freestyle.  We are so glad to have it.  Buying a new car is always a complicated process, but being in a wheelchair seems to make it even harder.  Not only did we need to find a car that would be big enough to fit our growing family, but we had to make sure it wasn't too high for me to get in and out of comfortably.  This car is the perfect solution.  It's called a crossover vehicle, so it's about as low as a station wagon but it seats 6, which means that it will still work for our family if we have another child after this one.

Of course, it wouldn't be fitting if we didn't mention this wonderful car.

Our trusty Chevy Tracker.  Bill and I bought this about a month after our marriage, and it's been with us ever since.  It's seen us through 2 children, 3 pregnancies, a cross-country move, several trips back West, temple trips, and many other wonderful memories.  We were all very sad to have to say goodbye, but we hope that its new owner will be as happy as we were, and we are looking forward to making new memories with our new car.

A car is almost like a member of the family and some people name their cars. Looks like it will work well for you all. Can't wait for the day when you all will drive up to our driveway to pay a visit.

I got on here to see if there were any pictures of little Sarah Lynn...but since I will have to wait I am happy to see your new car! Fun! And sounds like your Christmas was great! You are so good to start some traditions...I am still working on figuring out some good ones!

Congratulations on your new car! I know it’s quite hard to let go of the car that has been part of the family for many years. But when one thing has to go, something new will come, right? I hope this 2007 Ford Freestyle will serve you longer and better than the Chevy Tracker did. ->Arlyne Nelms
