We're Here!

We're in the middle of our second week in our new home! The house needed a lot of cleaning, but things are definitely coming together now.

I feel much more relaxed now that every room in the house doesn't look like this:
Caleb has really enjoyed all the activity. Both kids have thoroughly enjoyed re-discovering their toys after not seeing them for 4 1/2 months.

But boy is this moving stuff hard work!
I am working on getting some pictures of the rooms as they are finished. Stay tuned!

Caleb Can Walk

Last Thursday, someone switched a button in Caleb and he just started walking. He wasted no time to try out dancing too. His little legs are just the cutest thing. But I don't really have to say any him yourself!

Mmmm, Breakfast

I probably don't need to mention that he needed a bath after this particular meal.

This Is It

This quaint little 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom house will be our home for the next year! God provided in an incredible way and gave us more than we could have hoped! The whole yard is fenced in, which will be great for Sadie! And I think the best part of all is that there's a tiny, walk-in closet sized room that's going to be my craft room!!!! Whoopee!

Things are going to move pretty quickly. The house is available now and since Chris can start his new job whenever he gets down there, we're going to move in on July 18th and his first day at work will be the following Monday. We are so thankful to God for blessing us in this way and providing us with more than we asked. God is good all the time!

4th Of July Weekend

What a busy weekend we have had! Jerry and Ellen were able to come down Thursday through Monday and we had a great time while they were here. Thursday evening we took the kids to the beach after Chris got home from work. The storm clouds kind of chased us away after a while, but we had fun while we were there.
My sister, Sheri, came along too!

I don't remember what Caleb was looking at here. Seagulls, maybe?

Oh yeah, in case you didn't know, we frost Caleb's hair. Okay, not really, but it looks that way since he had a couple months worth of blond hair. It's now changing back to brown, so his hair is looking pretty darn cool these days.

Chris' sandcastle with a gorgeous sky behind:
Friday we all took a road trip to the Altamonte Springs, Sanford area to look at a few homes for Chris and I. (More details on that soon)

The kids enjoyed playing with my feet.

Saturday, we went to my parent's house for lots of swimming and food and fun!

This was so cute. Caleb was "tickling" Anna's feet and even making the sound "deedle-eedle-eedle". We all drove to Orange Park to watch the fireworks. It was the first show I've seen (in person) since having kids! It was awesome, too. Caleb was a little frightened at first, and clinging to me, but he eventually relaxed and sat in my lap to watch the show. Laura Anne, on the other hand, thought they were funny and cracked up for the first several minutes. She was laughing at the ones that looked like a fountain. How funny!

Sunday evening was spent at the beach again! I didn't take as many pictures this time. Laura Anne didn't really want her picture taken so I had to sneak them. She just loves the beach. I think she could stay there all day if we let her. She kept saying, "let's go in the sea!"

Caleb enjoyed playing with a bucket of water and a shovel. He did get to go in the water a little bit, and we donated his pacifier to the ocean. Both kids were covered in sand from head to toe by the time we left.

I didn't get many pictures of the adults, unfortunately, but I put a bunch more photos from the weekend on Facebook. You can click HERE to see them.

Lots Of Fun

That's what we've been having around here. I've got a lot of pictures to go through, so be patient and I'll get them up as soon as I can!
