Changes. . .

Our little yellow house, the one we have so lovingly remodeled, and put so much time into - is for sale. I'm sad, mostly because I love this house! It fits our family perfectly and we have loved putting our own personal stamp on it. But it seems as thought God has other plans for us right now. And those plans do not include Nebraska.

We have made the decision to move to North Carolina this summer. Tim will continue working with the same company, it's essentially just a job transfer. He will hold the same position as he does currently, along with several other plant managers, since the new plant is much larger.

We are happy with our decision, although at times it's hard to think about uprooting the family and starting all over again. We are looking for a house to rent, thankfully we have a great Realtor in NC, who is working really hard to find us a great place to live.

I'm happy that we'll be a lot closer to both of our families, at least within driving distance. And when Brianna heard that Disney World was only a 6 hr. drive she was really excited! I am so thankful that Brianna is so easy-going, she's taken the news in stride and hasn't seemed upset at all. That is, until she saw last year's snow boots in the "to-sell-box". When she asked why they were in there & my response was that we won't be needing them in NC, the water-works started! She then informed me, (between sobs) that snow is her favorite season! And she's right, she is one tough little girl, as long as she's bundled up & warm, she will stay out in the winter cold for hours! So, even though I utterly despise the cold & snow, I have a feeling this Mama might just be praying for a few snow flakes to fall in our neighborhood this winter!

And the 1st thing on the schedule after we get settled in?
I'm thinking that a subscription to Southern Living is totally in order!

Belated Birthday Fun

It's no secret that our girl loves her some birthdays. Since we had to be away on her actual birthday we planned a party for the weekend after. She was thrilled, happy to play with all of her friends, & had a great time. The pinata was a hit,(literally!) & there was more than enough candy to go around. All in all, a successful party, everyone had fun.

Its nice at times. We all know that our families love us, but it's still nice to hear. We know that our spouses are thankful for the "magic" drawer that is always full of clean clothes, for the hot suppers that (most of the time) are on the table after a day at work, & for the floor that vacuums itself, ( I wish) multiple times a day. We know our hard work is appreciated, but little notes like this: from a sweet daughter, makes life so much more enjoyable!

Happy 6th Birthday, Brianna!

These are a little late, she actually turned 6 two days ago but since we were out of town this past weekend we will celebrate this weekend with a party for the birthday girl. She was so excited about turning six, not necessarily about the number itself, just that it was her birthday! This girl is all about birthdays, it doesn't really matter whose it is. Of course the fact that she got to open presents made it all the better! Here's hoping this next year brings just as much happiness and fun as this past year has! We love you, Brianna!

Wordless Wednesday - from my flower garden

It's here

I knew it would happen one of these days. I just wasn't prepared for it to happen so soon. I kinda brought it upon myself. One day as we were heading out the door to church, I very innocently asked my little girl if she wanted a quick spritz of perfume. She was a little hesitant at first but finally agreed. And now? She is hooked. I'm not sure how many 'spritzes' she uses, but occasionally she will walk past me during the day & a 'wave' of perfume rushes by as she goes on her way. Yes, her face may be smudged with dirt from playing outside & her flip-flop wearing toes might be incredibly grungy,
but by all that is right & good, she smells good!
