We've Moved!!!!!

 So, as most of you know, WE'VE MOVED!!!!  And we are ABSOLUTELY THRILLED and overwhelmed with joy of the huge blessing we have in our new home!  As thankful as we were for our little two bedroom apartment, being in a 3 bedroom home has made all the difference!  I know some of you have been asking for pictures so here you go!  We've still got a little unpacking, organizing and decluttering to do, but for the most part we are done (can I get an Amen?!?)!

The living room!  (View from the entry way below).  The little play kitchen will be replaced sometime in the future with a refinished piece of my family's furniture, a beautiful old pull down secretary desk!

 The dining room just off the living room
 view of the kitchen from the dining room
 an entire utility room (woo hoo)!!! There's also a 2nd pantry in there too!
 huge breakfast bar (and cabinets with HIDEOUS knobs that will soon be replaced)!
 The only room that there are no other pictures of is the office.  This is because it's still our dumping grounds for everything that needs to still be decluttered, unpacked, organized and have a home found for it.  I will post pictures once it's all finished!
 The long hallway that has two huge closets (and leads to all the bedrooms/bathrooms)
 another view of the dining room

 The kitchen view with the pantry, door that leads to the 2 car garage and our wonderful FULL SIZE fridge (no more apartment refrigerators!!!)

 Master Bath
 Master Closet that is bigger than any other we've had!
 Master Bedroom
 The boys room (FINALLY DONE!!!)

 Boys/Guest bathroom

So, there you have it, for all of our out of town family that has been begging for pictures!  We would LOVE to have you come visit us (now that there is room for you to actually stay with us)!!  Let us know when you're coming!!!
Be Blessed and Encouraged!

Memorial Day Fun!

For Memorial Day this year we invited some sweet friends over for some water time and BBQ, of course!  We had such a blast watching all six kids play together in our baby pool, as well as with our bubble machine, and all while Aaron was busy working on the Egg, our Master Grill Man!  We enjoyed burgers, dogs, beans, homemade mac & cheese and more than anything else, the fellowship!  We were so busy that I didn't get any other shots than these few action ones, but they came out great!

Be Blessed and Encouraged!

20 Months

Asher, as with Caleb, this past month is a bit of a blur, but I do know you are growing because you've moved up a size in diapers (well that or I have been buying the wrong size for a while!)!  You are such a little honey with a spicy side to life when you don't get what you want.  But overall, you are such a joy to have and I absolutely LOVE watching your little brain develop and how it plays out in our everyday activities!  I love you precious little man of mine!

 3rd haircut already!  SOOOOO crazy!

 Both you boys LOVE riding in these carts at the store!  It's so cute!

I love you little man so very much!!!

Be Blessed and Encouraged!

40 Months

Caleb, you are 40 months old now.  Wow.  We are getting ready to move, so I don't have many photos of you for this post, but boy oh boy are you growing!  A lot of the month is a blur since I've started packing for our move, but a couple things I have very fond memories of are celebrating Easter with some resurrection rolls for the first time which turned out YUMMY, and we went and saw Thomas the Train in person, and actually got to ride on him as well!  I am so grateful for you buddy and love you so very much!!  Love, momma!

 Since you've semi given up your naps, every once in a while you will take a short snooze in the car if we are out running errands in the afternoon.  I LOVE watching you sleep back there, it's so cute!
 Your first drawing of a train, and not too shabby for a 3 year old!  it's James, the red engine from Thomas!
You LOVED this kiddie roller coaster ride at the mall!  it moved you all around like a real one!
 Of course, you love it when daddy wraps you up in your towel after bath time.  It's so cute, but makes you look way too grown up!!!

Love you sweet boy!

Be Blessed and Encouraged!
