First Day as Homeowners back in Arkansas!

It will be better when there is furniture to do work on!

Thankful for these blessings in my life!

These girls will make lots of memories behind these doors.  

Welcome Home!  I cannot wait to have all of our stuff out of storage and for us to be in our own beds!  Stay tuned for pictures of the process!  Painting begins tomorrow!

Our New House!

We are no longer "homeless".  We closed on our house today.  Painting, carpet and minor work to be completed and we will move in and make it our home.  Here are the "before we invade" pictures.

Drop Area, a must have for all of our stuff!

We named this the Christmas Cookie Island!  I can't wait until this is filled with cookies!

Scott has claimed this balcony as "his".  He likes to announce he is the KING of the land from this platform!  We let him live the fairytale!

We are so excited for this space to become our home!   Move in is scheduled for

The Signs are Removed

Yesterday, the girls gathered the signs from the yard because we closed on our NEW HOME TODAY!!!!

Student Council 2016

Mia working on give-aways.

Family effort as Ansley prepares to run for 5th grade Student Council. 

Writing her speech.  Daddy helped with the delivery!

Doing her "winning leg kick"!   We are so proud of her stepping out of her comfort zone, asking adults for recommendation letters, writing and essay of "why" she would be a good candidate and finally convincing her class that she would make a good representative.    

Little Reader!

Mia spending some time outside reading!

5th Grade School Picture Day!

Spiral Curls!

The only thing in our lives that is not chaotic or in transition is school!  Ansley had her school pictures last week.  We got up EARLY and curled her L-O-N-G hair.  The dress was a gift from Gpa and Kim during her visit to IL this summer.  Our baby is growing up to be a beautiful young lady.
