Big News!

Well, it's been a while since my last post. Things have been crazy around here lately. We had a house showing last wed., then got a phone call on Sat. the person who saw it wanted to return to look again on Sun. So after a lovely date Sat. night with my hubs, we went home and cleaned. It worked out great, because Sk was spending the night away at nana and pops (her first time), so now she has officially spent the night with both sets of grandparents, and we all did wonderfully! She had a great time and didn't want the fun to end, and mommy and daddy had some nice down time too. Back to the showing---So Sun. we left for church with the house clean and headed to get Sk and go to church. She has been occasionally been complaining of an upset tummy but still was playing fine and acting like she is fine for the most part, so with that we headed to church, but then decided not to keep her around anyone later in the day, as she started to complain again of an upset tummy *We were supposed to go to friends to swim and grill out after church. We were supposed to leave our house for this person to look from 4-5. So, we returned to our house at about 5:05 and she was still there with the realtor. We drove around till they finally leave at about 5:25. The next morning, we get the phone call! We had an offer. After one counter, she accepted! last night, our realtor came over and we signed the papers, now she will sign them and we will be officially under contract. We are in complete shock and amazement of God and how he is working things out. She does not have a house to sell herself, just some other details to work out, so hopefully (and PRAYERFULLY) things will go smooth and we will close on July 14th.
So there is that story! in short...We are so excited, anxious, scared (at least i am a bit). We are excited to see where God will lead us, and we are praying for Him to continue leading us, shutting doors where they neeed to be shut, and openning where He wants them openned.
It is hart to think about leaving the only house Michael and I have lived in and started our family in together. We have so many memories here. Sarah Kate's nursery is here....maybe i am silly, i know i probably am, and i know we will make a home wherever God leads us. It isnt the walls, its that my baby girl and husband will be there. We are excited and can't wait to see how the next year unfolds. If you are still reading this long post, please pray for guidance for us. Pray God would slam doors shut if we aren't supposed to go anywhere, if we are supposed to stay here, we pray God would clearly show us! We are so thankful for our friends and their prayers, and know we are being lifted up by many friends and family during this time. I cherish this and truly am thankful.
On another note, I will have updates soon on Sk, she is turning 2 in a couple of weeks! CRAZY! I also hope to have pics of Sk soon from her aunt lala's wedding that was May 28th (last fri). She was the flowergirl and did a wonderful job and danced the night away with everyone! Her dress was AMAZING!
I think that is all i will say for now. Off to go purge a closet :)

  1. Praying continually! And loving ya'll so very much... I want think about the possibility of a long distance move yet. We will just trust the Lord! But, the Lord will have to help us, and and give us the grace at the time we need it... if He takes ya'll to another state for a few years. We will wait on the Lord, and trust in His sovereign will.
    I love you kids so much, Mom/Nana
