Expanding Our Family

After years of consideration and deliberation, we have decided to expand our little family. Meet our newest family member...

His name is "Guido" (GWEE-do) :)

Moving Day

MLK weekend was celebrated by us moving to Flowery Branch, GA.  The weekend was made EXTRA exciting (sarcasm sign being held up) by Mother Nature dumping ~8 inches of snow on North Georgia.  We weren't sure if we were going to be able to move at all, but through wind and rain, snow and ice, the moving truck must move on!  Oh yeah, did I mention Tim got  a flat tire?  Moving was made MUCH easier (no sarcasm here) by our awesome friends and family who helped us.  We could not thank them enough for their love, support, and for walking up 3 flights of stairs with moving boxes.  Thank you with all of our hearts: Chris, Penny, Austin, Sarah, Davey, my Dad, Liz, Michael, and Jeremy, and to all those who wanted to help but were unable.  Enjoy these pics from the weekend!

Austin...working so hard ;)

Penny, Sarah, Liz, and me taking a pic - excuse to stop going up and down the stairs for a moment
The day ended with Austin, Liz, Tim, and I trying to enjoy our hot tub, but alas, it was chained shut :(. Red solo cups and sticking our feet into our big bath tub was somewhat of a consolation.

Crazy days are reminders of Blessings

As I sit here waiting for Amy's MRI to wrap up and waiting for my flat tire to get fixed and thinking about packing the moving truck this afternoon, I thought now would be a good time to reflect on all the blessings I have in my life right now.

1) a loving wife
2) technology that can keep us well
3) a car and a job to drive to every day
4) friends to help with life's heavy lifting
5) A God who loves me enough to provide 1-4 and too many other blessings to count. (Ok so I should have listed Him #1).
