So much to blog about!

So much to report!

It's been so long since I have blogged, so grab a cup of coffee and settle in for a big post about what's been going in our lives for the past month.

We have moved into our new house! We love it so much and we feel so blessed to be living in this house! Moving day went so smoothly thanks for wonderful family and friends. It was a really long day, but we managed to work hard and have some good laughs in the meantime! Thanks to Jaylin, Boy Alex, Mom, Papa, Mom McCown, Dad, Tyler & all of our kids who worked so hard to make sure that our move was successful! We love you all very much!

Here are some pictures from moving day!

Our hardworking crew!! Thanks everyone!

Bill is such a hard worker! I love him!!

Thanks for everything Alex!

Matt worked so hard! (When he wasn't texting or on the phone with his girlfriend)! Ha ha....

Mom McCown made a wonderful lunch for our working crew while we were moving!
It was so wonderful. Thanks MOM!!

About a week after we moved into our new house, it was time for Allie to unpack and repack her things so that we could take her down to college at Southern Oregon University in Ashland. We had some friends and family over for some ice cream and wish Allie GOOD LUCK at college.

Larissa, Jalen, Allie, Taylor, Courtney, Kaela & Carly

Nice eyes Jalen & Courtney! Ha ha ha Silly Girls!

It was a whirlwind trip. Thanks to Dad for letting us use the truck to move her down.

Our college girl.....**SIGH**

Allie's dorm room is really cute! We spent Thursday and Friday putting it all together and organizing her things. Of course, there was a trip to Walmart on Friday.

We went out to dinner with Allie and Alex on Friday night to a great little Italian Restaurant called Pasta Piatti. Seriously....Really great food.

Saturday came along and it was time to say goodbye. I knew that it was going to be hard to leave her, but it was harder than I thought it was. I cried on the way home from Ashland to Eugene. I even had to turn off the radio because all of the stupid songs were making me cry. Bill was wonderful and supportive and even laughed at me a few times, which I really needed! It is really difficult to cry and laugh at the same time. :o)

Here are the pictures from our trip to Ashland.



Bill, Allie & Angie....Sitting on her bed in her dorm!

And if that wasn't enough excitement in our lives, we had a wonderful birthday dinner over at Wayne & Jaylin's house on Tuesday night. It was such a nice evening and I wanted to say a big "Thank you!" to Wayne and Jay for hosting a birthday dinner for us. We had such a nice time! We love you both very much!


I love this picture! Taylor's face is priceless! Thanks for your help Courtney! Matthew, Kaela and Larissa and just smiling from cheek to cheek!

Matthew & Taylor worked on some worship songs

Thanks for coming Kelli! It was great to see you and it really meant ALOT to us that you were there to help us celebrate!

One of many birthday songs from my children! Too funny!

Well, that about sums up our life over the past month or so. We are getting settled now and we are still unpacking boxes, but it's coming along. We thank God everyday for our family and friends that have helped us and supported us during this transition in our lives. We feel blessed beyond compare!
