Christmas Time

Do you remember how excited you were as a child for Charlie Brown to come on, it's not quite the same for our kids they have the movies on DVD. I have tried for over a week to get the kids to watch Prancer with me to no avail.... (Prancer is my favorite) I think the older I get the faster the whole Christmas season flies by! I no more than get the tree up than its time to take it back down again. This year we are in such a small house it has been really hard to get excited. Our old home has yet to sell and we are still living in the small house we bought to use as a rental. I searched our storage unit for our Christmas decor and found 8 large boxes and appently that was not all of it, I never found the Christmas star so I made a bow. I never found the nativity so this year we don't have one, that really stinks because well it is all about Jesus!

Tonight we are having a Christmas program at church, the kids are so excited and I am enjoying each minute of watching them grow into such fun personalities! We have baked 5 kinds of cookies, that part they love!

Just wanted to stop in and say hello and Merry Christmas bloggy world! From the Happy Mommy Family

We are still on the move

We moved yet again in July, only 6 months from our first big move we made another big move. We are now somewhat closer to our old home, we are now back in the same state just several hours from our friends.
We are really really happy here, this is a small country town with southern charm to say the least. We are becoming active in our new church and the kids have jumped into football and dance classes and are really loving it here.
Still no baby in our future as of now, but I will say as time continues to pass we are more at peace. We are really in no position to have a baby with 2 mortgages as we wait for hour old home to sell. Just recently we moved my mother and grandmother to this small town to live closer to us, they also love it here.

Things have been looking up

We moved....
HD's company moved us to a neighboring state. I really hated it at first, to be honest I felt like God was just not listening to me anymore, after two years of begging, pleading and crying for a baby still God was saying wait or maybe NO and I was not hearing very clearly. Then we were moved away from our comfort zone. From all of our friends, from our beautiful home.
Have you ever felt like GOD where are you? Boy I have felt like that more in the last few months of my life than any other time. Yet he is right here. He never pulls away, we do, He never leaves when we don't do what He want's us to, Yet when He doesn't do what we want we pull away, He never stops loving us.
I have started to make some friends here and it is not the worst place in the world to live, it is colder which if you have ever read this blog you know there are two things I hate more than anything else, Rain and snow... But even with that I am adjusting
We are renting a small house in the city, talk about big change from a 12 acre mini farm with our own chickens to the city with a bus stop right in front of our house! CRAZY! The kids like it, it only takes 5 minutes to get anywhere. There are great restaurants on every corner, that is nice too!
We have a basement to play in, a walk up attic to hide in, and they have made the best of it. HD and I have really relied on each other for friendship which I had never realized had shifted, we had so many friends back in our old town that we didn't need to talk as much. Here we only have each other, it has been nice to get back to ourselves and the relationship we value so much.
This area is not a churched community, that is a big difference from our old city which had one of the biggest Christian Colleges in the country. I know God wants us here, I know our story will help more people here, I know I don't always get what I want.... I also know God loves me even when He tells me no....
