Since it has been so long since I have posted anything and a lot has happened in 5 months I should probably update you guys.

We got new family photos taken by Sweet Things.

You have to check out her site. She did an amazing job!
She took a ton more but I have a lot to update you on.

I'm going in chronological order but I feel that this is the biggest update of all!!!!

****My Hubby is now Community Pastor at our Church****

We prayed so long and worked so hard at this that we so ecstatic about it. Because we were so excited we don't have any pictures of him being on stage and them announcing it in front of the congregation. It was an amazing day. A day I will never forget.

Next up...

Boogs is the one in the bandanna. He was a Cowboy! So cute.
He would walk up to houses and say,
"Trick or Treat, or Put'em up!"

Hubby and I celebrated 5 years of Marriage.

This was the cabin that we got to stay in for 2 nights (no where near long enough). It was so relaxing and totally what we needed to be able to handle what would be coming up. We also renewed our vows and I gave Hubby a new ring (since his broke in half about 6 months prior).

This was a fun Christmas because Boogs was way more involved with everything.

It was also an extremely hard Christmas because the day before Christmas Eve we had to bury my Hubby's Grandmother. She was the sweetest lady and loved our family very much. She thought so highly of my Hubby and was so proud of him being a pastor that she asked him to preform the funeral. It was hard on him but he was very honored to be able to do that for her.

 I told you there was a lot to catch you up on....

Hubby and I spent most of the month of December sharing one car (which at times was great and sometimes very frustrating). After many trips to dealers and so many thankless hours from my Hubby on websites, we finally found the perfect car for us. We were patient, listened for the guidelines that God told us and waited for the perfect combination. Finally... We got it!
Please note: Not a Brand New Car, just new to us.

This year's New Year's was different than it had been for the past 4. Normally we go to Louisville, KY with friends that we don't get to see to often and have an amazing time. It is always really great catching up with all of them. This year we didn't have the babysitting for us to go that far away so we went out with other Pastor's and their wives(like our second family) to Downtown Cincinnati. It was a great time. Different than we were used to but still a really awesome time to spend with everyone.
And of course I will take advantage of any date I can get with my Hubby.

The last big thing to post about is about Boogs.....
My baby is now 4!!!

I can't believe it. So amazing and so sad. I remember so many details about the day that he was born, it is hard to believe that he is so big. He will be going to Preschool this year (that's another subject for another day). I am just so grateful and thankful for him and how wonderful he is and how everyone tells me that too.

Well that is just 5 months of big things to catch up on.
I wonder what this year is going to hold.

P.S. I will be getting back to the craft thing tomorrow.



  1. It has been quite the journey, hasn't it? God is so good! Love this post, sweetheart!

    1. Yes it has baby but worth every moment. God is Good. Thank you for being the leader of our home.
