BIG NEWS

It's official... we're moving! Yup you read that right... we are moving.

We are leaving our little town in Okalahoma and heading to the bright lights of Texas! I think I'm still in shock. When Adam and I first moved to Oklahoma 5 years ago, we were just a few months out of college and we never thought we would be here this long. Not that his job wasn't good, we just thought he would do this job for a couple years then move back home to Texas. But that wasn't what God had in store... Adam earned a couple promotions along the way, I was able to stay home with Grace and we really started to like here. However, due to several changes and a growing family we started to think about moving home again. It's really hard to be away from family when you have little ones. We have been so blessed to have found so many wonderful friends here that will truly miss... hopefully they will come visit us.

After several months of searching for the right job and many many interviews later, Adam has accepted a position. We couldn't be more excited!! Our house here in OK goes on the market today. Hopefully it will be sold fast, but the average length of time a house in the market here is 120 days... so it could be a while. I also have no clue where this baby girl in my tummy will be born. Maybe the house will sell this week and we wont have to worry ourselves with that.

Anyway, I've been dying to tell everyone, but had to keep things quiet until it was official. So help us in praying for a smooth transition, move and new start in Texas!!!

Lu said...

Ha! Ha! When I read your comment, I had to come by...Yes! You are crazy! But I am SOOO glad for you. I don't know what I would do without my family, especially my parents! They help me so much with Bubbie...like nights out. We've NEVER had to pay for a baby sitter! I know you have got to be so happy, excited, anxious, and emotional! So So So happy for you! I will definitely put your house on my prayer list!

Well welcome back to Texas!! I do hope you guys have a smooth transition with this move and the new baby on the way! My girls were the first ones on my side of the family to be born in Texas. Maybe you'll have a little Texan girl too!

OH! How exciting! I agree about being closer to family! I'm so happy for you guys! Life changes after baby #2 comes, and I only wish my parents lived closer!

Grace is such a cutie! You should enter her in some contest for the most beautiful eyes or something...they are just amazing!!!

Jen said...

YEA! I'm excited for you guys..and for Grace and baby sister - it's so nice to be near the grandparents (I'm assuming that you're moving back here...I'm not sure where Adam grew up). We'll have to get the girls together once you guys get all settled in and everything. Good luck with everything w/ the house selling/moving and all that. It can be stressful - especially w/ a baby on the way...but just keep in mind that God has a plan and it will all work out.
