our house

Well we're pretty much unpacked! It feels so good to have our home set's really starting to feel like home. Here's a few pictures of our place.

we're not quite sure what to do with this piece of "art"...apparently it was an art project of hers...we think it's quite atrocious.

it only took us (them :) an hour to load our stuff into the truck! I was ordered to stay in the green chair.

don't worry, we didn't fill this huge truck all the way! Maybe next time.

Dan the man

The night we got there, we stayed at Ryan & Amanda's - a couple about our age who go to the church. This was waiting for us in our room when we got there. How sweet!

The exciting moment of going into our house for the first time!!

girls from the youth group helping clean the kitchen. 

The church people collected food to stock our empty cupboards. Isn't this amazing!? This isn't even all the food - there's probably another bunch 3/4 the size of this that they gave us the day before and I didn't think to take a picture before I put it away.  This is a huge blessing to us!

painting!!! Last night we got started with mission "bye-bye blue". It should be completed by tonight.

Well that's all for now. I will post more pictures once we get all unpacked!

fun with the kids

We have this fun feature on our computer that distorts how you look when it takes your picture. As you can see our nieces and nephews thought this was great.

what a hunk!


...and a nice one :) 

We're sure going to miss them!!!

32 week shot

here's me and my big belly at 32 weeks.

I'm still feeling pretty good generally, other than the aches and pains that come with the last part of pregnancy. Some mornings I wake up and can hardly get my legs out of bed because my hip bones or pelvic bone or something in that area feels like it's locked and sore, but some mornings I don't have that. I've also had some sciatica problems but thankfully it comes and goes - it doesn't stick around like it does for some people.
