Goodbye party

Some of our sweet friends from church threw us a goodbye party. Problem is I can't seem to remember to take more than just a few pictures. Here are 2 but I promise there were a lot more people at the party. Thanks so much Veritas Class. Thank you Trey and Elizabeth for hosting. We had a great time and we will miss you so much!!! Lori and me
Matt and I with Keith and Tonya.

The skies are His handiwork

This was the scene out of my backdoor Saturday night. Awesome!!!

Our House - The 6 Oaks Ranch

Just wanted to give an update on our move. We have a contract on our house (pictured below for those who have never seen it) and will be closing on April 29th. We are so thankful for this because the housing market is terrible here and houses sit on the market forever. So we are so very thankful. We have been blessed to have lived in this house for 3 years and have loved it. Mostly I think we will miss the yard and trees. It is just beautiful, especially this time of the year. But sadly we must leave it. The movers are coming to pack us up on the 30th and load on the 31st. We will drive to Wichita on June 1st and close on the house we have a contract one there on the 2nd. We will also unload on the same day. Please continue to pray for us. There is no wiggle room in our schedule so pray for things to go smoothly. Also just pray as we make this huge transition.

EC finishes K4

Emma Caroline finished up her K4 with an end of the year program. They do the same one every year so we had seen it last year also but it is cute none the less. She had a line this year and when it was her turn she wasn't paying attention. She stood there looking around then gave a great big yawn before someone got her attention to step up to the microphone. What can I say, it makes for a funnier video than if she had just done it right. But the kids all did good singing their patriotic songs. And still in the car from time to time she will bust out with "My country tis of thee. Sweet land of 'liverty' of thee I sing." Gotta love it. My parents came for a visit so they also got to go to the program. It was a great time.

Happy Mother's Day to me

It was a good Mother's Day. I didn't have to fix lunch (Matt did a pizza). And I got to take a nap!!! It was one of those great naps when you sleep so hard you wake up and you don't know where you are or what day it is. AHHHH!!! Plus my kids were NOT sick. Matt was but he let me take a nap anyway. I love Mother's Day.

they snuck one by us

So the whole family, including Matt, goes grocery shopping with me on Thursday. Now that I am a mom I hate the checking out process because the space is narrow and there is candy and sometimes toys all around. I'm trying to get stuff on the belt for the cashier and they are grabbing all around them. This particular trip Matt was doing the unloading onto the belt and I was flipping through a magazine and swatting hands grabbing things. Well, we got home and were unloading when we came across this container of Nutter Butter bites. At first we were a bit puzzled but then we had to laugh as we realized they had snuck one by us.

Happy Birthday EC

EC is 5 and proud of it. We had a fun day celebrating her birthday. We started off the day opening presents. Her big present was this doll house. So far it has been worth every penny because she is actually playing with it. YEAH!!!!
OK so I am no cake decorator. I can put icing in a ziplock and pipe with it but I couldn't find the can of pink so I bought something different. It was too hard to write with so I just did an EC and threw on some sprinkles and she was fine with it.

For those who have known us for long or have been reading this blog a while you know that for us no holiday or birthday is complete without some sickness. This time EC had pink eye in both eyes. Go figure.
