We're on the Move

Remember when I made a post about my home?  

Remember how I wrote about how much I loved living here 
how I think I might want to buy the home? 

I now come to say that we are moving from this abode.
moving makes such a mess...

Yep...making a move about 40 minutes south from my current city.  
This is such a bitter sweet feeling.

  Honestly....I've shed my share of tears. 
I've felt overwhelmed.... 
I've felt sad... 
I've felt all sort of things.
And I have also felt very excited about this whole new journey we are going to take. 

Are you wondering what happened?

Well lots....  
I've shared in the past about my husband launching his business
how we have somewhat struggled with finances?

 how awesome God has been to meet our needs....remember all of this?  

My brother-in-law came to help out with the move

have been discussing the possibility of us moving to help save money...
 All in hopes my husband's business starts to make a climb.  

For all of you who have started businesses or struggled with finances you know there are seasons when you have to do what you have to do. 

Most of the time it's a huge sacrifice and a little tiny bit tough. 
These are things we are storing away in a storage unit in town

we are going to be moving in with Donnie's parents for about 3-6 months. 

I really don't know how long this whole journey will take.  
It depends on how Donnie's business takes off and how much money we can save. 

it is a rather huge leap of faith.

Hard workin girls
For one....
I am so very thankful for wonderful in-laws who are willing to let all ten of us move in.
This was taken at the park a few weeks back....enjoying a late picnic for dinner
The kids are all very excited that they will be living with Mema and Pops.  
They are sad to leave their neighborhood friends.
The neighborhood boys we will miss
One of my boys was in tears when we told them we were making the move.  
I, of course, shed tears again...right in front of them all.  

Today we went down to check out our new place and to figure what of our belongings we are going to put in storage and what we will bring with us.
I am all about living simple and the less we bring the better for me. 

I am actually rather excited about it all.
As I type this post, I'm feeling much better about this whole move.  

I am excited to have my mother-in-law to chat with in the evenings...
 living out in the country.....
to have Donnie home more
(he'll be working out of the house) 
and helping me with the schooling.  
So that's exciting...
In posts to come I will share pictures of my new "place"
and how it will all work out. 

  All I know right now....
I am going to make this a time memorable.......days to treasure.
I'm excited!!!!



Wow! That was fast! I'm so sorry you have to move. What a blessing that you have such wonderful in-laws that would help you in your time of need.

God is good. I'll pray for you.

oh wow Chris!! And so the adventure in Him continues...

I just got all goose-bumpie when I read this. I do believe it is the Lord leading and guiding you. I know it will be hard for the children to say good-bye to their friends, but you never know there could be new friends just waiting to be met.

I am looking forward to sharing your journey with you, through the pages of your blog.

I pray you all get settled nice and quickly. It will be wonderful to be around the grandparents for a season... all I can say is, they must have a BIG house! lol.
You guys are really moving fast! I'm so proud of you for looking at this like an adventure! I can't wait to hear more about your new place! Your mother-in-law must really love you and your children! That's so wonderful!

i do remember your post about your home. How ironic this is all happening now. I hope your new journey will be a wonderful one. Years ago when we only have 5 children we made the same journey. Only across the country from CO to WI to live with my inlaws. We had 7 of us, (at the time) and they still had 6 kids of their own at home. It was an adventure. We lived with them for 6 months. Lots of prayers for your exciting future.

How exciting this adventure the Lord is taking you on. Good, bad or ugly the Lord will use this time to help you all grow closer to him. And who can argue with that?

So happy for you~ Cinnamon

Hi Chris,

I've been thinking of you. I know it must be very hard to leave your beautiful home. I'm sure you will love what the Lord will do for you and each family member through this move.

God bless you friend

Love, Rosemi

She is Here!! Welcome Ana Karisa!!

Just a quick update to let you know we had the baby!!  Yay!!!! :D Here name:  Ana Karisa (pronounced  A-nah  Ka-ree-sah  ) Born: January 30 at 9:15 PM Weight:  7'2 oz  19 inches  Beautiful little girl.   Here are some pictures and when I start feeling normal and not so much like a milk cow, then I will post the details of what took place on Delivery day. ( Ana about 5 minutes old) (Here she after her check up--about 30 minutes old)   (Coming home!!  1 1/2 days old) We came home yesterday late afternoon, and I am lacking much sleep.  I really haven't slept since last Saturday.   She is nursing a lot right now to bring down my milk.  I've been nursing around the clock.  Almost every hour.  I am doing this because she has been hungry and I need my milk to come in as soon as possible.  I am showing signs today of it coming in.  She is not so fussy and more content.   It is so easy to forget about those newborn days.  It doesn't matter how many babies you have h

A day away....

Life had become so overwhelming for me when Donnie was away with the older two  children.  It seemed we hardly ever had time to really talk about life anymore I started to feel disconnected with him I really don't like this feeling I am not a surface type of person and when "problems" in life begin to brew..... look out!!   I will do what it takes to make things better.... Even if we have to make an emergency get-a-way... I wanted just one day... one whole day alone with him. Sooooo.... Donnie asked his sweet mom to watch the children for us while we took a little drive on over to the beach... ahhhhhh I think the beach has become one of my favorite places to be.... There is something that takes place deep in my heart when I come face to face with the massive ocean and the waves.... The breeze blows and there I find some comfort and peace... We had such a great time reflecting and revamping some of our vision, plans, and goals for  the

Meet Sweet Kara Faith

My sweet friend Nancy from Mom Just Like You , delivered sweet Kara Faith on January 8, 2010 at around 6:45 AM. Nancy's husband Stu calls me around 5:30 AM to let me know Nancy's contractions never let up and she was going to be delivering their long awaited miracle baby Kara. It has been an emotional battle these past 4 to 5 months for Nancy and Stu. Kara was diagnosed with Alobar HPE on the same day they found out they were having a baby girl, their 8th child, third daughter. Their heart was broken not knowing what the future held for them. Nancy leaned on the only source she had in her life: The Lord. I have been friends with Nancy for 5 plus years now (we met on MOMYS). When I found out Nancy was going to have a special baby, immediately my mommy heart was aching for my sweet friend. I went into deep prayer and intercession for them. I was grieving along with them, but deep down in my heart I knew God was and is Faithful. As I prayed one evening at worship nigh
