A Day To Remember

We've lived in the same house for just shy of 7 years now.  Wow, how time flies!  We never planned to stay here this long.  But that is changing...

PRAISE GOD FOR HE IS GOOD!!!!  WE BOUGHT OUR FIRST HOUSE TODAY!!!!  It's so perfect!  A very cute country ranch on 4 acres.  We are so excited!  There is a barn out back.  It's pretty shabby, but totally has potential.  SOMEDAY my horse will retire in our backyard.  It's so awesome to see your dreams coming true!


We had a champagne toast (or a few)!  We even had a little dance to our song.  Then we unloaded all the paint for tomorrow.  Mom and Dad paid us a visit and had the grand tour.  Poor Keith had very little sleep as he worked last night.  He's gone to work this evening pretty well exhausted.  I'm exhausted too, but not nearly as bad as he is.   

Tomorrow we have friends coming to help paint and clean.  I'm planning to make coffee and pancakes.  Not sure when the big move will be, but we have until the end of the year to clear out of our current place. We are very happy homeowners!!!  I cannot wait to see what plans the Lord has for it!!!  Let the moving process begin... a little at a time.  We are so blessed!!!  Yay!!!

Turkey Day

Mom has the turkey pictures on her blog. Recap... Uncle Charlie raised the bird. P3 and Daniel helped butcher it. Amanda had to buy a new pan that just barely fit in the oven. It was FORTY POUNDS!!!! The legs hung over the edge of the pan. It took two people to get it in and out of the oven. I pealed the meat off in large pieces. Wow it had thick skin maybe a half inch thick! It kind of fell off the bone. Paul sliced it with an electric knife. The remainder of the day was spent playing games and watching Duck Dynasty.

A great time and full belly was had by all.

Recent Recap

We've been to NC to celebrate Dad n Rach's 25th Anniversary. So sorry we are missing the big party but it was nice to miss the drama of the whole family and have their attention all to ourselves. The highlight of the trip... Rachel bought she and I matching Jammie's!!!

We were blessed with a most beautiful sky as we traveled there. There was a spot of rainbow right in the middle of it.
