Happy birthday Abigael!!

Abigael anne just had her very first birthday party! It was so fun, and to all of you who joined us fam- thank you for coming. She is a sassy little thing. We are going to have our hands full!! I told everybody outside toys because if I leave the door open, she will try to find her way out. So why fight it?

Anyhoo- for those of you who have been praying for Taylor and I, thank you. It's been a difficult, but also encouraging few weeks. Taylor has a few interviews we are praying about- we will keep you all updated. My dad's father passed away last week, so we have been trying to love on our fam. God in all of this has been so gracious to us and has provided exactly what we need when we need it. I'm looking forward to the spring because I get to spend most of my time outside! And that always makes everything better (or at least it seems like it does). SO as of right now, we are preparing for soem milestones. Coming up in May: Taylor graduates from seminary (FINALLY!!!!!!) my bro graduates from high school, Taylor's from college, and my other bro is getting married. We will have a few months before the next birth milestone...

4 months later!!!!!!!!!!

Ok so... Abigael is not still 8 months old, but in fact turning one in less than a week!!! For those of you dear friends and family who have been so patient with me and my "not togetherness"- thank you. For those of you who don't check this, I don't blame you- obviuosly I have not either. Because I forgot. BUT- We do have so many updates!!

First of all, Abigael has taken her first steps! She is trying so hard to walk around. I think she might be the happiest baby ever. She laughs at anything we do. She loves being outside and eating dirt. I mean- just kidding, I don't let her. I will try to put up some more pics after her first b-day. But.. Taylor and I are really excited about the church we are at- Journey Fellowship, and GOd has blessed us with precious friends and support. Speaking of blessings- we are expecting another one come mid September. The answer is no. It was not planned. But we rejoice! We might not know what we are doing- but at least GOd does!! And..... Chad is getting married! My little brother. Oh how time flies. (do I sound old now) Abigael is sleeping and i have to go to work to teach, so I must scoot, but I promise to try a little harder at making this work. Love you all!
