Getting Settled In..

We are starting to get settled into to our new home. The last 2 months have been full of many different emotions for my family. We've experienced death and now a new life is coming into our family. With the news that my youngest daughter is expecting, came many emotions for me...first disappointment and then I realized that God has a reason and purpose for everything, including this new baby that is coming into our lives. Thanksgiving has been given a very new meaning for our family. We are very thankful for our new home, family, friends, and basically just being able to be here...I personally am so thankful for the friends and prayers that have went up on my family's behalf. I am looking forward to spending tomorrow with our families. I hope that all of you have a Wonderful and Blessed Thanksgiving!!

We've Moved!!

The last few weeks have been crazy! We made the decision to move from our home that we were leasing to buying our own home. It is an older home and needs work, but it is ours!! It is in a much quieter and safer neighborhood. We are exhausted but are starting to get settled in. We still have painting and some fixing up to do, but the boxes are starting to dwindle. I have been determined to not have boxes for Thanksgiving. I have also been downsizing. I seem to be somewhat of a hoarder..I have decided I just can't keep everything. The kids have done a lot of throwing out too. We have a lot happening with our family right now and would appreciate everyone keeping us in their prayers. That's all for now...
