Yes it is true.....

we were robbed today. The lady that cleans our house called me at about 11:15 to tell me that she thought our house had been broken into. When she got here to clean the garage door was open as well as our door going into our house. They took our tv in our living room (and were so kind as to not disturb my garland as they removed it from above the fireplace.) They took lots of random things but saddest for me was they took all my jewelry. I had some diamond earrings that I got for college graduation and a diamond necklace. The diamond in the necklace was my grandfathers and since I was his only granddaughter he left it to me. My parents had it put it into a necklace for me to wear on my wedding day. I also lost my braclet that Brad gave me after I had Evan. I know that insurance will cover some of these but I know in my heart that the diamond that I got from my grandfather can never be replaced. (I now have one pair of earrings and my engagement/wedding rings which will help with easy decision making in the mornings!) They took other stuff such as my mom's cricut machine so I hope they do some lovely scrapbooking with that!!

We are very thankful that we were home or came home while they were here. It was hard to come in and see what they did to our house and know they had gone through all of our things. I hate the fact that took the safety and security we felt here away from us. I know that one day we will feel normal here again but right now that is hard for me to not have an uneasy feeling in my stomache.

I just wanted those who have heard our latest bad news to know that we are doing okay and we appreciate you thinking of us! I plan on posting some Thanksgiving pics here soon. We had a great day that day!

Goodness! You must have felt so violated. So sorry you have lost so many meaningful items. You never know, maybe the jewelry will turn up in a pawn shop soon. My house was broken into when I was a child and we never thought we'd see my grandmother's jewerly again, but the police caught the guy pawning it!

Goodness! I am so sorry. I know EXACTLY how you feel, as we were robbed in March 2007 when we lived in "safe" Benton. We felt so violated... and certainly missed the heirloom jewelry and big TV. It just sucked, plain and simple.

We will NEVER be without an alarm again. You can bank on that!
