San An

Well- we arrived in SA on Friday the 13th with bumps, but no huge gashes. :) We are thankful to be settled. The day started out with a traffic ticket, delayed closing on our house, and a loss of money- but we made it down here with the help of our friends Tim and Sarah. We are moved in and ready for anyone who wants to join the parteee!!

Abigael is teething now and drooling enough to fill the Grand Canyon. But she evens it out with an occasional taste of a laugh that would make Uncle Scrooge smile. We are thankful for our new home- Taylor has been working really hard on getting it ready. He looks like a rancher on the tractor. I love it.

We're pretty tired, but we actually got our entire house unpacked and moved in- we're pretty stinkin proud of ourselves. (And we had help.. thanks fam) Uncle Chad and Uncle Chris put in their duty time as well. Chad taught her the difference between up and down. Chris taught her how to spit. Genious brothers.
We are looking forward to our visitors this summer (our home will be filled with girls- poor thing. guys he might need a get away every now and then...)
Abigael says good morning... and I'm trying out video....

Farewell Waco... but not goodbye

Well at last- by the grace of God we have sold our house!! Our official move date to San Antonio is Friday the 13th... :) Know that at ANY time, you are all welcome to come stay, visit, play, eat. We will try to keep everyone updated as much as possible, but thankfully it's not very far away. Taylor is currently looking in San Antonio for a job, with a few leads. Please pray for taylor's family as they are working through a divorce right now. Though definitely not without some heartaches along the way, we are also so thankful for the blessings we have been given, and mercies that have been shown. I will be teaching at a small art studio by our house starting in the fall and am excited about opportunities to be creative. We are anxious to begin serving and doing ministry somewhere, yet still not sure what we will be doing. My family is excited to help us move in and to be closer.
This last weekend we traveled to see Zach (taylor's bro) graduate. Congrats Uncle Zach!! We were thankful to spend time with family.
On another lighter note---
Abigael is learning SOOO much lately!! She found her thumb yesterday morning rather than trying to shove her entire fist into her mouth (which was becoming rather frustrating as she is getting bigger) She has a doll, which we now call Dolly (we are very creative namers...) that has become was captures her attention anytime it is in site. It's amazing how attentive she has become to what is around her. She is rolling over now, one more step closer to moving on her own- which taylor and I believe is her ultimate goal at the moment. Little independent woman....
We love love love love you all. If you are in Waco- PLEASE stop by so we can give hugs.
