It's Official...We're Moving

So sorry for the delay! I have been meaning to post pictures of Christmas and Aiden's 1st birthday but things have gotten a little busy around here. We are moving to Kokomo, Indiana in 4 weeks. It's all happening quite quickly so you can imagine there is lots to do and very little time to do it in. Kreg is returning home to be a part of his family's business.....farming (hogs and crops). The whole farm is really pretty cool. I don't quite understand how everything works but I know its much different than the way farms use to run. For those of you who don't know where Kokomo is it's about an hour north of Indianapolis and for you Taylor peeps its about 45 mins west of Taylor. That should give you some idea. We actually signed paper work on a house up there on Wednesday evening. It's a cute little ranch with 4 bedrms and 2 bthrms. It has good decorating potential so I'm excited for that.

We feel all kinds of emotions about moving. We are both excited about what God may have in store for us as far as ministry opportunities goes and Kreg is excited to try his hand at farming and work with his dad and uncles (so of course I am exicted for him to try it as well). However we are also sad in many ways. We have really made a home for ourselves here the past two years. We are moving out of a house we absolutely LOVE, in a neighborhood we LOVE, away from my parents, brother, sister-in-law, and nephew, the many friend's we've made, our church, our young adults class, etc... This is my stomping grounds and it's sometimes hard to think that it can no longer be home (even though in a way it always will be). I'm sure I will be back down quite often to see many of you.

Now for a few pictures of Christmas:

Aiden loved opening presents. And he was actually pretty good at it too. He was unwrapping his new bike! (see next pic)

wooohooo look at that bike! You may not be able to tell from this picture but he LOVES this bike. We have made probably a 100 laps around the house already and its not even been a month yet. I love it because I don't have to break my back pushing him anymore!

Aiden and Luke got books from my mom that are personalized to each of their names.

We had a wonderful Christmas with both sides of the family. We were thankful to be able to be together with Kreg's family as well on Christmas and here at our house too. My poor inlaws had to bring all the presents down here for their 8 kids and 2 grandbabies! But I'm glad they did...turned out to be a very fun day.
