Made it to Georgia

Thanks for praying for us! We made it to Snellville, Georgia approximately 8:55 p.m. We left Selma, Indiana at 5:30 in the morning and it took us a looooong time to get here because of the kids... well also because we needed to stop for breakfast, lunch and for gas.

I think I have a good wi-fi signal here. I'm looking forward to updating a lot on my blog. I'll try posting pictures soon, just to test it out. Here's to hoping!

Leaving Indiana for Georgia

It's that time again. We'll be hitting the road tomorrow. We did as much as we can here but now it's time to head to another building project in Georgia. We've been here 4 months. I must say that I really enjoyed meeting the people here! The church has been such a tremendous blessing to my family and I. We are very grateful to have the opportunity to get to know several wonderful families and make new friends. The Lord has been so good to us! Pastor Keppel is a wonderful man of God. I am grateful to know that there are still godly preachers out there. Don't get me wrong, I still miss my beloved pastor but praise God we'll see each other again!

Yesterday, we ate out (one last time) with the Pastor and his beautiful family, the assistant Pastor and his lovely wife, Tom and Robert, and of course us. Joanna got her early birthday present from the Keppels (Pastor's family) and they even got Peter a little something too. Joanna played with her gift (ponies) for a good two hours before it was time to leave. Thanks Sis. Meagan! She loves her new birthday toys! She's one spoiled girl.

I'm hoping that we'll have good wi-fi in Georgia. That way I can update you with my most recent pictures and videos I've been taking. I will be posting the building project we've done here in Indiana and will be posting pictures of my family. I also want to try and do something different... like post pictures of recipes I'll be trying and even share recipes with you here! My blog background needs some changes too. I want to match the theme of the holidays. You'll know it when you see it.

Peter has been taking a few steps already. I've watched him took 2 steps without support (then he fell). But still! It looks like he'll be walking before he turns one! He's only 9 months. Crazy, right?!

Well I have to go now... I need to clean and get some stuff packed up tonight. We are leaving early in the morning. Please keep us in prayers as we travel. I'll be in touch as soon as we arrive in Georgia. Hugs!

I miss Texas

Okay so there are days that I just want to go home. I miss my family (besides my own, you know what I mean). My mom, in-laws, grandpa, aunt and extended loved ones. Oh and I miss my home church too!  Is it just me? I believe this can apply to everyone at some point in their life... at least once, right?  Come on!  You know it's true.

Anyway, I am so looking forward to spending time with my family.  I miss them and love them all dearly. I'm sure once in a while they're thinking about us too.  I just know.  I have this vibe-like-feeling-feely-thingy.  Okay okay it's whatever you want to call it.  Hee hee  Also, I know for a fact that it's all about my children. Ahhh, it's okay!!  (wink wink)  I know it's not about me anymore. (just want some self pity to make me feel important *laughs* it's a joke!) All joking aside, I know I'm still loved.  At least, I hope. ;)  

Besides my family, I've often wondered how my church is doing. Last I've heard is that they took another vote for a possible pastor.  All I can do is pray that God's will be done in finding a pastor for our church. You are thought of often and are like family to us. We love, miss and are looking forward to visiting with you all again!

December, hurry up!  

Only 3 more months!  Yessssss!!!
