How sad

Every time I hear this it brings tears to my eyes....

We have a signed contract on a house!  Woohoo!!  Our next step is to get the inspection done.  We are just so excited at the thoughts of finally settling into a home and unpacking after 2 years :)  As things progress, we will post pictures of the new place.  It is a nice home on a beautiful 38 acre plot.  Oh, how we look forward to all the possibilities.....we are so giddy!!  The Lord is good!

So much can change in just one week.  Our family has experienced such a great loss with the passing of hubby's dad.  We rejoice for him that he is now with his Savior and has a new body with no pain!  We shed tears for ourselves as we will miss him tremendously here on earth.  I could not have hoped for a better father-in-law and grandpa to our children.  There will be a huge void without him in our lives.  He was loved so very much!!
A friend of ours also lost their precious baby girl at 35 weeks in pregnancy.  I can not imagine the ache of empty arms that desire to rock their daughter.  Please keep our family and theirs in your prayers over the next weeks and months ahead.
We also have finally found a house and land that we are excited about and are putting in an offer.  We pray for the Lord's wisdom and guidance during the negotiation process and that if it is His will, we will have open doors through the entire process.
The kids are doing well, baby is growing and getting chunkier every day!  We thank God for His goodness to us and His love for us.

5 weeks

Baby girl is now 5 weeks old.  She is growing and gaining and becoming more alert.  She loves to cuddle and is not happy when put in her bed.  She would much rather be in mommy's arms!  This makes doing things around the house a little bit harder when my hands are always full :)  She is starting to smile when she hears my cute!
I really need to take some videos as well.  Our almost 2yr old is becoming quite the little gal.  She is such a smart cookie...loves to 'chat'....has quite the vocabulary...loves to sing....and can be such a comedian.  She calls her siblings by name now and it is so sweet to hear.
Other than that, we patiently wait for the warmer weather to come so we can get out of the house more and enjoy some sunshine.  Today was freezing rain and snow....I'm ready for winter to be over!
