I have actually been dreading this post because so much has happened since the last time I blogged, and I knew it would take forever to post about everything that we have been doing. So...I am going to post some pictures for you of a few random moments over the last few months, and then I am going to do some posts in the next week to get caught up. So, for your viewing enjoyment, here are some pictures of our life since May!

On a different note, our extended family has been plagued with so much illness in the past few months. We have had three family members diagnosed with cancer since February. They are continuing to get better, but please keep them in your prayers.
Until next time...

My sister had her baby last Monday, May 2 at 9:21 pm. They did not find out the sex of the baby, so it was a great surprise when Daniel came out and announced it was a girl! Her name is Addison Marie, and I love her! She was 19 inches long and weighed 6 lbs 14 oz.

We purchased a house in Round Rock this past weekend! Sorry that I don't have a better picture of it, but I don't have my camera with me to upload the pictures we took, and this was the picture online. This was taken back in January, so the grass is much greener now! We are so excited! This is a great house that is in a great neighborhood. We close on June 17! We'll post more pictures later. :)

Oh my goodness! We close on our house in less than two weeks! I cannot believe it! I know I posted a few weeks ago saying that we had a contract on our house, but I have not wanted to say that it had definitely sold, just in case something fell through. Well...it looks like everything is clicking right along, and we will be closing on Friday, March 18th! We had some obstacles to overcome, (like getting a new roof-thank goodness we have great insurance, and had total replacement on our roof!), but we have now passed all inspections and the appraisal. (Insert sigh of relief...)
We are now in the process of boxing everything up, so every free moment we have is spent packing. Jayden is not very happy about this, as he does not understand what is going on. His little world is about to change drastically, and I feel so bad for him, as he is so upset all of the time. Please pray for our little guy, as this is so difficult for him.
We will be moving in with my parents in a week. This should be interesting! I haven't lived at home since I was 18 years old, so this is going to be a big adjustment for all of us! We truly appreciate them letting us move in with them though, as we don't know what we had done otherwise. We hope to go down to Austin in April/May and look for a house. We are so excited about this!
My blogging is going to be almost non-existent for the next few months, as my parents don't have wireless Internet like we are used to. I will try to keep everyone updated though as much as possible!

I am happy to say that after only 12 days of our house being on the market, we received an offer, and are now under contract! We will now be going through the inspection process, but we should know for sure in the next couple of weeks if we have definitely sold our house! So far, everything has gone very smoothly, so we are hopeful that we will get to tell you that we have definitely sold our house very soon. We feel so blessed that we have a contract, as there are many people who have had their home on the market for many months, and have not had anything happen. Many prayers have been answered, and we feel certain that this is yet another step that God has allowed to happen so that we may continue on this new journey in our lives. If everything continues to progress, the buyer has asked to close on our house on March 18, so everything is going to move VERY quickly. Basically, that means that we have less than five weeks left to live here. It makes us sad, but this is really what needed to happen. We will be renting a storage unit for our possessions, and will be moving in with my parents until Chris graduates and we can close on a house in Austin. Please continue to pray that things go smoothly and that this contract will work out!

Jayden made Valentines all by himself! All I did was put the glue on the paper, and he did everything else!
