Well, it was a little over 3 years ago that I started blogging and we were in the midst of moving out of Lakeland. It's pretty ironic that now I am sitting here blogging, in the midst of moving back to Lakeland! Yup, that's our plan for now. It's exciting and sad and still a little unbelievable all at once! It has been exactly 3 weeks and 2 days since Jonathan was laid off and so this is moving fast, really FAST! Jonathan has some better prospects down south, like getting back with Publix, so that's why we're heading out of Tally. We're moving ahead of our initial schedule, since he needs to be back there for an interview next week. We're thankful for all of God's blessings - big and small - through these past few weeks. He's shown us that He answers our prayers, He provides for all of our needs (no matter how impossible they seem to us), and He always gives us the strength and courage to get through whatever we are facing. Even the really tough stuff - that even to think about, makes you want to puke! So we still have many unanswered questions and really don't know how everything will work out just yet, but we are so thankful for the direction God has given us so far. And especially for the possibility of work for Jonathan, even if it is only part time to start. And of course, we're always thankful for our friends and families' love, prayers, and support!

So, here are just a few pictures of life the past few days...
William's really getting good on the tricycle! He's finally caught on to pedaling! Abbey likes to catch a ride too, although he can't pedal and pull her on the carpet!
Our girl loves to dress up and pull my clean clothes out and drape them over her shoulders! We've given her scarves for this sort of thing, but she prefers things that come out of hampers or dresser drawers! :)
I found her asleep like this yesterday - just thought it was cute.
Jonathan gave her bangs a trim last night in the bath. He forgot that hair gets even shorter after it dries! Oh well, it will grow! And here is what the house looks like with 5 days to go. Basically the only things not in a box, are the things we can't go 5 days without!
