We made it!

Well folks, we have finally gotten moved in...YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!! This has definitely been the most stressful move we have ever made...and you know that we are moving pros! I don't know if it was because of the lack of organization that the movers had, the fact that it was Christmas time, because we have all had terrible colds/allergies/crud (welcome home!), the 1000 miles!!!!!!, or a combination of all the above. Anyway with all that, we still made it. We are by no means organized yet, but we are getting there. I can not wait for the kids to go to school next week (without me going YIPEEEEEEEEE) to see what I can accomplish. Also I am dying to catch up with all my stay at home friends that I have missed dearly for the past year!

On to church news. The people here are wonderful!!!!! They absolutely outdone themselves. They had painted the entire house for us, including all the wood trim white! They set up a real Christmas tree for us and everybody in the congregation bought ornaments to "introduce themselves". They put bows and garland on all the windows and candy canes on all the cabinet knobs. They even had a wreath on the front door and an Alabama flag for Brad in the front yard (well nobody's perfect!). Brad preached Sunday for the first time and had 2 baptisms Sunday night, how awesome is that! Tonight we have our New Year's get together with games and finger foods followed by fireworks at midnight. I will hopefully get some pictures up soon, but first I need to find my camera :)! Hope everyone has a happy and safe New Year's!

Sorry it's been so long.

Let me start out by saying that I cannot wait until Friday aka...MOVING DAY!!!!!!!!!!!
Now that that is out of my system let me first apologize for being so far behind on updating my blog. Just to let you know how crazy my life has been, I just uploaded Thanksgiving pictures today only because I have to make room on my camera for Christmas. I am so anxious to move and go back to my former life as a stay at home mom. I am ready to once again cook supper every night, have all the cleaning done BEFORE the kids get home from school, not minding helping my kiddos with homework because I won't have done it ALL day long, an get to the million crafty projects I have been dying to try. Did I mention I got myself a sewing machine for Christmas that I can't wait to learn how to use! Also we will be living in the preacher's home which is in need of some decorating TLC. I can't wait to get started, but first I must get in gear here. I keep saying I have so much to do, but have no clue where to get started, maybe my inspiration will come soon.
Here are some of the pictures that was taken during Thanksgiving at MawMaw's.
We decided to play football after lunch.
Here are me, Brandon, and Jamie. Notice how short I am and I have heels on!
