Old vs New

Old house stats: 3 bedroom
2 bath
1 living area
1 dining room, made study, made playroom
quickly out growing this sweet little house!!
The new house stats: 4 bedrooms
2 baths
2 living areas
1 dining room- just for a table and nothing else :)
and a HUGE, Glorious kitchen.


Yes, we have sold our house!! It sold in about 6 weeks and we had planned on moving into my parents house, but God had other plans for us!! I told Paul to go look at houses with our wonderful realtor Brenda- since Paul is the picky one, it was easier to have him go look first. So, here is our timeline:
Tuesday- we got an offer on our house- we counter-offered
Wednesday- they counter offered- we accepted
Friday- Paul & Brenda look at houses.
Saturday- Our family of 4 went back to look a few of the houses.
Sunday- we take the parents to look at the houses.
Monday- we looked one more time and we ended up signing the paper work!!

I am not gonna go into all the details, but I know God's hand is in all of this and we are just so very excited!!!! We close the day before Thanksgiving and will be moving over Thanksgiving weekend. Wish us luck!!

Trunkfest- Happy Halloween

This year for Trunkfest (our church's version of trick or treating) we hosted a trunk. We decorated it with MAVS colors and had Hudson's little basketball goal out there for some interaction. We started at 5:15 with decorating and preparing for our trunk-a-treaters and finally closed it down around 8:45. It was a long night (over 10,000 people came), but tons of fun.

Pumpkin Patch 2008

It is crazy how much changes in a year. The kids have grown like weeds and luckily we haven't. We didn't do our annual trip to the pumpkin patch with our SS class this year, so we made plans to go with the Eisenhour family. The boys played and ran until they got in tired. It was fun with Ella being a little older this year. 2008 Family pic 2007 Family pic....oh how a year changes us all- remember Ella was only a few weeks old last year.

Fall Festival 2008

This year we had our annual SS fall get together at the Eisenhour house instead of the Pumpkin Patch. It was a lot of fun and the kids got to run and play to their hearts desire. It was fun to see all the kids dressed up in their costumes.

Hudson our little prize fighter and Ella our little cheerleader.

Isn't he just too cute in his 'mittens'?

Ella was so partied out, she cuddled up with Dejah on the couch....how cute it that?

Thank you Eisenhour's for hosting us for a fabulous fall festival!! We had a great time and the kids enjoyed it too!!
