where to begin

Sorry, we haven't posted anything in a while. Its been a crazy month. Where to begin...

We had an interesting Christmas as we didn't get to make most of our get togethers because of weather, roads, and the flu. Then, the Milmonster family was around for about 1 1/2 weeks. We pretty much spent all day with the family and then came home to sleep. It was great fun to get to see Lil'Mil, Nano, MiniB, and family for so long. Rose started to walk and is already an expert. She also has 8 teeth, 9 and a 10 on the way.

Then, life started again and decided to head to Lincoln to house hunt. Before we left we wanted to leave Rose here with grandma and that meant getting her use to the bottle. She wouldn't have anything to do with it so we made reservations at a hotel and grandma was coming with. Then, Rose decided to wean herself so everyone came to Lincoln and we had great fun. We looked at 26 houses and found about 2 that we really liked. Made an offer on 1, then 2, and number 2 it is. We just heard today that they accepted our offer! I'm so excited that everything is falling into place. It seemed like 6 months ago we weren't sure what we were doing and where the Lord wanted us. I guess faith and patience are true principles of the Gospel:)
There are so many pictures I want to post but I will try and keep it short. Great Aunt Beth from Atlanta
Rose trying to get into the swing with MiniB.
Our little girl is the biggest moocher. Food is the surest way to make Rose your best friend.

Man! Send some of that "new direction" our way! We're still in the "not knowing what the Lord wants us to do" phase. :-) Little Rose is getting so big!! I hope we can meet her before you guys disappear to Nebraska! But at least I'll know her through the blog. :-)

Thanks for FINALLY posting :) Man, it really bums me out when people go months without updating.

CONGRATS on the camera! It's almost as sweet as your house ;)

Congratulations on the house, what a fun new adventure. I can't wait to hear what happens next for your lovely family.

Mark & Jess said...

Yeah! That is awesome! Congratulations! It does get hard not knowing if you are doing what the Lord wants you to be doing. Even harder when you know what the Lord wants you to do but you are scared to do it. Awesome pictures and congrats again!

Congrats on the house! How fun for you guys! I so wish we could live closer to you...I have a feeling that we could really enjoy our time together. I'm struggling to find people that I really relate to here in AR. Anyway, your little Rose is so sweet. Take care!
