We are still here and so blessed!!!

Hey y'all! Yep! We are still here and I am still having to update this via my cell phone. Its been a bit crazy here! We have been renovating our youth building, the lighthouse. That has been a huge project that has consumed our lives for the past month. We have had a ton of help though! We have been overwhelmed with people who are excited about the changes that we are making! I can't wait to see it finished!

Our kiddos are good. Anna Claire starts her preschool in the morning. Since she can't go back to kindergarten until next year since her birthday is in November, we decided to put her in a half day program so she would still have a routine. So, it'll be Paxton and me in the mornings... Except Tuesday's when he will go too. Michael is my boss on Tuesday's lol.

They are making friends and they are being loved on. It makes my heart smile that my kids are happy. And they are being spoiled rotten :).

Oh and we had a run in with Isaac last week. Our first time preparing for a hurricane. We did ok for our first one down here. We were so blessed that we only lost electricity for about 24 hours. We know several people who had serious damage to their homes. I am definitely glad that he has gone far away from here.

We are blessed and doing great here! God has placed some wonderful people in our lives that has overwhelmed us with love and support.

Here are a few pictures from the last month. Have a great week!!!!

Guess who is TWO!!!!

Paxton turned 2 on July 16th! My baby isn't much of a baby anymore.

We are still here!

Its been forever since my last post, I know! We have been so busy this past month. And I am having to write via my phone since we don't have internet yet.

God has blessed us so much! The kids are settling nicely and Michael is winding down after two weeks back to back of camps.

I am adjusting to being a stay at home mom. I love being with my kids everyday but I gotta say that it isn't easy. There has definitely been times that I have missed working, but the good outweighs the bad! Anyway, our life in pictures....

Getting all situated

We have all of our "stuff" unpacked in our new home, and now we are working on getting ourselves unpacked. Trying to get acquainted with our new town. I have located the closest Wal-Mart (because that is a priority) and we have found shopping. You really don't realize all the things you have to find when you move. I have been trying to find Anna Claire a school for the fall and Paxton a place to go a couple of mornings a week so he can have other kids to play with. As of today, I can mark that one off my list. Next, I need to find the kids a new pediatrician, ourselves a primary physician, and a dentist. Everytime I feel overwhelmed, I stop and remember that God will unpack us. He has us here for a purpose and He will take care of all of our needs.... Even our petty needs like realizing that our bank doesn't have a branch in Louisiana. Overall, enjoying our new home. I won't lie and say that I don't miss our old church, my friends, or my job. I do. I miss all of those things. BUT I can tell you that God is way bigger than my emotions when it comes to that. I will visit in a couple of weeks and I am looking forward to it.

On another note.... Meet Beast. Our new puppy. He loves to play with the kids. He especially likes Paxton's diapers. I am always prying his mouth of them lol.

We went on our last trip with our church last week! What an awesome way to say goodbye to a great group of kids! We went to Atlanta Fest at Stone Mountain. My babies went too and had a blast. A few memories from our trip: maxi dresses, waffle house, free college shirts, autographed bubbles, two dollar icee refills, overly cramped vans, braided hair, gas, bernie Mac, and free bread!!!!lol.
