Movin' on Up!

Our new abode 
(Yes, it's currently purple.  KSU fans- I tell ya what.)

The big weekend has finally arrived!  On Saturday, we are actually moving into our new home (which we have owned since January 7).  Let's just say some major updating needed to be done.  I can assure you that the wallpaper and carpet seen below are resting peacefully in the Manhattan dump.  I seriously can't wait to post about a bajillion before and after photos!

 A MILLION thanks go to our parents, Chad's brother, Young Life leaders, and all of the friends/babysitters who have kept my kids over the past few weeks.  We could not have done this without any of you!  There is still some SERIOUS work to be done on our 101 year old baby, but we couldn't be happier about moving day.

Give Credit Where Credit Is Due

Well you may have noticed our fancy new family photo at the top of the blog.  I must give credit to my fabulous friend, Jen Dillender!  I've mentioned Jen before, but I thought that you guys needed to know about her new website.  She is not only a super-talented photog, but she is a lovely friend, fellow YL spouse, and all around cool person.  Her husband JD is not too shabby either.

Anyhow, I thought I would include a few more shots that she captured on a FREEZING day in Stillwater, OK.  Enjoy and go see more pics of our funny kids at!

Beware- these children will melt your heart!

New Year

Wow, it is 2011.  What a wild ride the past year has been.  In case you didn't know, I went back to work this fall.  I am teaching 7th grade Language Arts and loving every minute of it.  Unfortunately, blogging has fallen by the wayside!  I have set a few goals (not resolutions) for myself for 2011.  As cheesy as it may seem, blogging more is one of my goals.  Of course, I don't have the time or energy to update you on ALL that you've missed since the summer.  We've had birthdays, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas happen.  I'll just have to gradually give you a few peeks.

Anyhow, I'll (of course) leave you with a few photos.  I look forward to seeing you more in 2011!
