We're All Packed Up!!

Well, after two LONG days of packing and cleaning the house is empty and we're on our way to Tennessee. Thank you so much Mom and Dad for all your help! You worked so hard for us! We can always count on you guys coming over to help us move and do the hard stuff. Just couldn't get you over to hang and do the fun stuff! But, it's ok. We love you so much and can't wait to see you in Tennessee! Thank you Sandy for coming over to hang with us and Andon in the hospital and helping us move. We're gonna miss you and Abby coming over for the weekends! Thank you so much Josh for ALL your hard work! You helped Jared get all those big heavy things out of the house that I could never do! And thank you so much Brittani for coming over and being so willing to do whatever we needed. You made it very fun for Andon on packing day and I appreciate that so much. I love you friend and I will miss you terribly. To everyone else who stopped by and helped in any way, thank you so much!!! We might have an empty house but we definately have a full heart thanks to all of our friends and family members.

I know this picture shows my mom laying here doing nothing but she worked SO HARD and was laying on our air mattress taking a quick break. :) I love you so much mom!!

If you look closely you can see Andon laying in between the boxes.

Here's our U-Haul all packed and car hooked up. We're ready to go. Well, as ready as we can be. :) I'll update more soon! ~Jen

Camping In

This past week Andon kept asking to go camping. We have never even taken him but he knows all about it! He has a little red tent that we set up in the house every once in a while for him to play in. So we decided to make a night of it!

Friday night when daddy got home we started our camp in. :) We were gonna grill hamburgers and hot dogs and do smores on the fire but unfortunately it was pouring outside so we did BLT'S, chips and watermelon inside.

Then for dessert we still made the smores just did them in the microwave! So good, and messy! Andon liked playing with them more than eating them.

After dessert we headed over to the tent, turned on his lantern and hung out. It was so fun to just hang home and feel like we were doing something differant. Once it was time for bed though Andon wanted to go to his bedroom. We had the tent set up downstairs and his room is up so I had an idea this would happen. ;) Oh well. It was such a fun Friday night that would have otherwise been the same old thing! ~Jen

So Much Going On....

I've been meaning to blog but can't find the time to do it. I have so much going on and keep finding myself walking in circles around the house! We are moving in three weeks. I just started to pack but find myself starting in one area, leaving and going into another before I was even done in the first. So my house feels like a big mess. Andon is having some dental work done in two weeks. He just had his tubes taken out of his ears this week so no swimming for 2 weeks. That's a long time for a boy who LOVES to go to the pool! He has a physical scheduled next Friday. I am getting my sister's kids for the weekend. Jared and I are going to Nashville next week to find a house and visit Andon's school. And that's a whole other story.. He's going to preschool!!! If you know me you know how big of a deal that is. He is very excited! I can't believe he will be 5 in November. He is getting so big. So, with all of this crazy stuff going on at the same time I keep remining myself of Pastor Jon's message this week to chill out and not worry. Matthew 6:25-34 27"Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?" 34"Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own." I know that everything will work out the way it's supposed to. I just have to get through it all and remain calm. ~Jen

Here are a few pics of my little guy looking all grown up. We were heading out for the dentist so he had to bring his sunglasses.

This is actually a pair of Jared's old sunglasses so they look a little big but he prefers them over any kids glasses.
