Great News!

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!

Snow Days

As most of you know, we had blizzard conditions in Oklahoma yesterday. They canceled classes for Chris, and my work was canceled as well. We got a lot of snow, and it has been very, very cold. Here are some pictures from the last two days!

Our snow covered backyard.


Jayden wanted to go outside so badly yesterday, but it was just too cold. The wind chill was -20 degrees!

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

Adding jewels to the Valentines.

They turned out so well!
We were finally able to get out of the house today, so we went to my parents house and went sledding. Jayden had a blast! Here are some pictures of our afternoon!
Jayden had so much fun sledding down Nana and Papa's hill!

The three of us. It was so bitterly cold!

Sweet boy...all bundled up!

Mommy going down the hill. It was so much fun!

Jayden and Daddy walking back up the hill.

Jayden walking back up the hill determined to sled down again.

He had so much fun and couldn't get enough even though he was freezing.

All bundled up!

A very happy little boy after coming in from sledding. Look at those rosey cheeks!
