House on the Market!

Not much time to write lately. I have been SUPER busy getting our house ready and doing a million and one things around the house. We officially put our house on the market Thursday! We are staying in the Louisville area, but want a bigger house, closer to work and church, and also to take advantage of great interest rates that are out there.

We are praying for a quick sale, wouldn't it be wonderful to be writing from a different home this Christmas!?!

Keep us in your prayers. We pray the right buyer would come along! The crazy clean freak is coming out in me! Before we leave the house, or I sit down for that matter, I try to make sure it is worthy of a showing at any moment! Whew! :) We do have our first showing tomorrow. I am trying with ALL MY MIGHT not to get my hopes up.

I'll post news when it happens.

GG's Birthday and My Matching Boys

We celebrated GG's birthday while we were in Jax. (We also celebrated Josh's Mom's birthday but somehow we don't have pictures of that!) Here are Hannah and Andrew with GG. :)

GG had extra help blowing out all the candles. Hannah helped me put on the candles and insisted of one kind and color of each candle going on the cake! :)

Before church the other week. Both my boys in their matching polo shirts and tan shorts! :) Micah still wasn't really awake. hee hee

Cruise Pictures

I had to include just one picture of all the wonderfully amazing food we had on the cruise! :)

We had a blast and I am so glad Josh planned this cruise for our vacation/anniversary! :)
