Cake Craziness

The week before we put the house on the market I had 2 cake orders to fill. If you ever wondered what my kitchen looks like when I do cakes....now you know. (btw...I am still doing cakes from the Island...it's not too much farther!)



(This was not the finished product!!!)


LOVED all the colors



Fun. Fun.

Attempt to Catch Up...

Well...it's been about 3 or 4 months since I sat down at my computer and wrote a blogpost! SO much has changed since I sat down and blogged. SO. MUCH.!!! 

This is the biggest change for us...

After much prayer and discussion we listed our home to sell on November 8th (I think). The Lord laid it on my heart through a Bible Study I did September - October. Once I shared it with Brian, and we prayer about it, God totally took it out of our hands and things moved FAST. The slowest part was the actual sale... We had exactly or just over 20 showings of the house in 8 weeks. Keep in mind, Thanksgiving AND Christmas were in there too. I didn't realize how tense keeping the house always ready for a showing really affected me until I started packing and making a mess everywhere. We were so excited to be under contract, but the mess the followed so quickly was crazy. PRAISE GOD the house sold EXACTLY the week we needed it to. Literally! It was SO God. His Timing is always perfect -- never a second early, OR late. Sunday Night December 28th, we sat as a 4-some family and cried out to God to sell the house that week or very quickly if it was His will. We had a showing set up for 9 o'clock the next morning, along with other throughout that next Monday. The person who came at 9 o'clock came back Wednesday afternoon with family to scope it out more, and by Friday night we had a good offer! It was Amazing to see God work. Everything went smoothly, and we closed on February 5th. Praise God!!! (Thank you to all who knew and prayed us through all that!!)

So... Because the house was on the market, showings, Holidays, etc... I did not have time to escape away to find internet and blog. BUT!!! We have wifi at home now (PTL/yay!!), so hopefully I can get back and have regular postings of our daily minutes for ya'll to enjoy. 


I'm sure you're wondering... "Where did they move to?!" We are now officially Islanders with Mom Moreno! :D Various things led us to this arrangement, and we are thrilled to continue to see God's hand in it. Yay!


This picture was the Wednesday afternoon Showing before we received the offer on Friday. We didn't typically pick up stuff, but there were a couple times we did. Praise God for gift Cards that get saved more less on accident! French Fries and Lemonade made this afternoon MUCH more enjoyable. 

We officially moved on Jan. 21st. I think I can say we're settled in now. I still have books, decor and a only a couple misc. boxes to unpack. Perhaps I'll get those done this week... in-between daily Mommy/wife tasks, being on-call as a doula, and the 100-serving cake order to fill for this weekend. ;)

Ice Cream!!!

We like ice cream in this family. And it has been awhile since we purchased any for our house. The girls were thrilled, and we enjoyed it as a family.

Water...

There's a story that goes with these pictures....but, I'll spare you. Bottom line -- Brian said I was grumpy, and I decided to prove to him I wasn't by dumping the pot with water in it (That I was currently washing) on him...he tried to get me wet too...but didn't succeed to much. ;) The girls greatly enjoyed playing in the puddle of water on the floor. 

We don't typically do that. But, He didn't think I'd do it...and it made a memory. So, why not?!




One way to get the floor mopped. ;)

Cousins!!

Our girls LOVE P & H! In Oct, we were tag-teaming with Mom McDonald to watch them so C & B could have a little getaway. It was SO fun spending time with them. The Girls LOVED it. :) I wish I'd gotten more pictures, but grateful I got this one.


Love you boys!!

E's 1st Haircut

E has fine, curly hair. I love it -- there just hasn't been much of it until here recently. I finally had someone around the house to take pictures, so I could trim it. Her hair was getting all icky from just never being cut before. 







Can't really see much -- but it does look MUCH better.
