Thought you might like to see our attempt at a sweet, calm family photo.
Inside thoughts: "Stop goofing, girls!
Through gritting teeth, "Alright, seriously, settle down and I mean it!"
"I give up. Guess I'll join em."
Ok, so maybe skip the crazy kiddos and just take a picture with the baby. People love baby shots, am I right?
Side Note: Am I crazy, or does my mister get more handsome every year? I have much to be thankful for this year, not just becouse I am married to a stud. But seriously, those dimples are killing me!
I think we will have to pause and readdress the whole family photo thing at a later date.
Another Note: It has been an insane couple of months, my friends. Insane in a good, hold-on-to-your-hats-and-just-keep-steppin kinda way. I know some of my pals have been asking for updates on everything going on. Here is the basic run down:
The mister is in VA searching for a house. The Lord led him to a great church family (this was the number one priority), so now we can start looking for a home somewhere between church and work. So far, he has seen several homes that might fit our family.
Mom and I are in Indiana visiting friends and family, and staying at my in-law's home throughout the holidays (thank you again, Bob and Jere). It has been a wonderful time catching up with everyone here in the Midwest. The girls had their first snow fall a couple weeks ago and have been praying for more ever since. We've had some valuable and much needed cousin-time and will continue to make awesome memories here.
I get discouraged sometimes being away from my best friend. But, I see the Lord's hand in it all and am so excited about moving to Virginia.
Virginia. That has got to be the prettiest sounding state in the union. I like saying it out loud with a strong Southern accent. House number four, get ready! I am dying to paint a room, rip out some walls, and hang a chair or two.
Much love to you all!
