New pics

You know you're tired when you fall asleep standing up- or leaning! *This was too funny! Princess had been up rummaging through her backpack and tearing papers out of her notebook. Then, she must have tried to crawl back into bed but never made it all the way in. I had a hard time not laughing hysterically (out loud)...

The story behind this one is so cute! Our 6 year old would eye up this "monster truck" every time we drove past it. It's on the main road so we passed it a lot.... he would always tell me that when he gets big he wants a monster truck- maybe even that truck. It disappeared off the lot for awhile and he was so sad that someone else bought his monster truck. Then, one day, it reappeared again! I thought he was going to jump out of his seat when he saw it. So, last Sunday we stopped after church to get a picture with his monster truck. That way, he can always remember it and maybe, just maybe, buy one that looks just like it (when he's big)!

New family pic! Everyone is growing and changing so much- I figured we better get one before some (or all) of the kids grow taller than us! Don't you think they're just all so cute???

HOUSE FOR SALE! This decision was a big one. After living here 4 1/2 years, we are ready to move back 'home.' We love, love, love it here but all of our family is up north. The kids just don't have their grandmas, grandpas, cousins, aunts and uncles all around them. It takes us so long to save enough money and shut our business down for a short vacation to visit. We feel like we're missing so much and so are the kids...the home sickness has gotten to much for us. So, we just put our house on the market and we're trying to do 'something' with our business. So, please help to pray us home. I don't know when it will be, how it will happen, or what the details will look like (how do you move this many people 1000+ miles?). Thinking about it is a little overwhelming but we've made the first step. God has done the impossible for us before, not even this is too big for Him...

The chorus to this song has really been running through my mind lately. This is an emotional time but we know it's the best for everyone in the long run. Family is family, nothing trumps that.

Well I'm going home,
Back to the place where I belong,
And where your love has always been enough for me.
I'm not running from.
No, I think you got me all wrong.
I don't regret this life I chose for me.
But these places and these faces are getting old,
So I'm going home.
