Good Friends.... Great Friends....NO BEST FRIENDS...

Harrison and Olivia are best buddies (and their Mommies are too) Only Harrison could find a "girlfriend" that LOVES Thomas the train too. Over the last year we have grown very close to this sweet family. Enjoying meals, road trips, play dates, and LOTS of Thomas the train (at home, bookstores, toy stores, train stores, and Train attractions), Yes they disagree at times but they LOVE each other, and wake up asking if they are going to get to play that day.

But tomorrow Olivia is moving 12 hours away from us, and we are so SAD. We Know God has great plans for this this family but we will miss them dearly. The kids know that they move is coming but they really have no idea what is going to happen tomorrow. I know how hard it is to leave friends so I am not looking forward to losing a great friend just down the road. When you move to a place that you know NO ONE it takes a long time to find the friend that you can stop in on at anytime, that you can laugh with, cry with, and enjoy a bad day together. We have been blessed to find that type of friend here. Now we just have to learn to meet in the middle or get on an airplane to visit. And we DO HAVE PLANS :) I am sure there will be LOTS of texts, phone calls, and emails to come.

They are about he cutest little things every. And Olivia has a little brother that is usually trailing just behind the "big kids" he is just as cute too.

Friday we took them to Build a Bear to make a stuffed animal for each other and they really enjoyed it. Harrison ended up with a Buzz Light Year Bunny and Olivia got a Hello Kitty with a Cinderella dress.

It takes a real man to put the Cinderella Crown on a Hello Kitty in public.

They had a blast.

and as you can tell they LOVE their new buddies to hopefully make the move a bit better. They even got to record messages to one another in their animals . So as Harrison goes to bed from now on we know we will be hearing Olivia's voice saying "I LOVE YOU HARRISON" and at Olivia's house they will be hearing "Liva its me, Harrison. I LOVE YOU , good bye" until the battery dies.

Awww, that is too sweet! I love Harrison's message to Olivia and I'm sure it's was sweeter to hear it in person!
