The Past Few Months

Wow!  So much has happened. The kids are growing everyday, especially Timothy.  This little guy learned to sit up, clap, say Da Da, and sprouted 4 new teeth, all in the past month!  Nicholas is learning about dinosaurs in school and had a blast at the zoo this past weekend.  However, he was kinda disappointed we didn't see any dinosaurs there.  

I guess the biggest news is that we are moving again.  Jonathan got a new job with Halliburton in Houston.  We are so happy to be back close to our parents and sisters after 6 years.  We will be living in the Katy area and are super excited about the awesome schools, church prospects, and fun activities close by! 

I have to say we are a bit sad to leave Duncan.  We have had an amazing year here.  We've met some really amazing Christian friends and had a lot of fun memories exploring all the surrounding Oklahoma towns. And of course, we are really really sad to leave our Smith and White grandparents.  Nicholas has become especially attached to his Granny, Papaw, and Papaw Smith.  But, I see many Oklahoma trips in our future and know that God has a plan for our lives.

No matter where the Lord takes us, Jonathan and I always feel blessed for the time we have and honored to serve him along the way!

Snow Days

Just Staying Warm!

The past two days have been fun for this Texan family!  An Oklahoma blizzard dropped quite a few inches of snow at our house.  Yesterday, Jonathan and I took turns taking Nicholas out to play in the snow. He..wait..I mean "We" had a blast.  Today it has been way too cold to venture out (about 9 degrees) and Nicholas has developed a yucky asthmatic cough.  But is was fun while it lasted!

Things have been going pretty good around here.  Timothy is changing everyday!  Nicholas is doing great and learning lots of things in preschool.  I think he knows how to spell every basic color now!  He's still into Cars, Toy Story, Handy Manny, and now monster trucks (Jonathan took him to a monster truck show last weekend).  

We miss everyone and hope you all stay warm and toasty as winter comes to a close.
