Sylvia Has Been Ordered!

Yep! That's her name! 
I think she is going to be a beauty!

And she will give us plenty of room!

We look forward to many driving vacations in Sylvia the silver sprinter!

Poor dear, will have to weather the storms outside because she is not going to fit inside the garage.

It was a month ago that we ordered her and we still haven't been notified that they have started production. She is supposed to arrive in 2 more months!?!

Can't wait to start making memories with Sylvia!

This means we will soon have to say goodbye to Vanna Wh*te.

She has been wonderful and we will miss her!

It has been a joy filling her up with blessings each day!

She does well in the snow with her snow tires!

We are planning to trade her in when we pick up Sylvia.

if you are interested in buying her in November/December, please email me!

She has many upgrades and safety features!

Front and side airbags, snow tires, antilock brakes, clasps for carseats, back up camera!

Leather interior, 3 Tv's, Heat and cool driver and passenger seats, upgraded side mirrors, side step, sliding door, upgraded wheels and tires.

And super low mileage! 

She is a 2011!

We have never sold a car outright, we usually trade them in.
If you think you might be interested in her after November/December we can tell you where to find her! We would love for her to go to a good home!

We love, love, love our Sprinter. We have had her a year now- she's silver too!

Wish we could! Our kids kept asking us why in the world we got an 8-passenger van, when it obviously wouldn't be big enough for long. I guess we'll see!! Hoping that they're right about that one.

Jean can you contact me at: and let me know how much you would take for Vanna outright. We are looking. Thanks!

How many seats does Vanna have? I know someone who might be interested.

And . . . how many seats does Beautiful Sylvia have?

Love the names! We used to have Clifford the Big Red Van (with a stuffed Clifford as our mascot). We still miss Clifford.

:) :) :)

We might be in need of one..What will you be asking? My email is

Leah Spring said...

I'm local to you. How much are you asking for Vanna? You can email me at deanleah at

Sarah said...

Hi Jean,
Your car names are just perfect! Vanna certainly looks dreamy. We have to take 2 cars every where. I leave in 2 weeks to bring another precious CHD boy home and this will be #10 for us.
You can email me at jhrisleyatgeemaildotcom to let me know how many seats and the price.
Thanks so much,

Janet said...

Your names crack me up=), so fun. Mine is black, and we just call it the van, I guess we're boring.

Sylvia is a beaut!!!! Xoxo

I made almost the exact same blogpost in October of last year. We bought a Nissan NV and our Sylvia has been such a blessing. We won't be going over 10 children and that is the limit of seating in the back and that suits us quite nicely.

Here's the link to my blogpost about our Sylvia 11 months ago.

I'm drooling over Sylvia, and Vanna doesn't look so bad, herself! Kind of wish we lived near you!

Sally said...

Curious if you have sold vanna yet? My email is

Sally said...

Sorry...its actually :)

Unknown said...

Do you still have Vanna?! If so could you please email me the details? We have some friends who are looking and it made me think of you! :) Thank you!
