We're back...and better than ever!

(A huge thanks to Zinser Photography for our AMAZING pictures)

We are finally back to blogging again and I'm not sure where to start! I guess start with the biggest news-Mattea Kaye, our beautiful baby born on January 8th. She is absolutely wonderful. She is happy and cuddly and all the precious things a new baby should be. Both Carson and Mailee and infatuated with her and are very protective. We are so blessed to have her.

January 9th

Three months old

In February we sold our house in Gooding and even made a profit off of it. It was such a HUGE blessing. Then we were able to purchase a new home just a week or two later. It is an older brick home, but completely remodeled inside-new carpet, kitchen, retextured walls-it is beautiful. Brent's favorite part is that it is on
1.88 acres. We are going to have a huge garden, an orchard and raise some turkeys! Farm livin' is the life for us! We have some work to do outside, but the inside is perfect. It is 3 bedrooms 1 1/2 bath with a huge kitchen and family room. My kids are so excited to have room again after our tiny rental. Currently, we are still in the process of unpacking and deciding where to put everything.

Our new house

That's our life in a 8 months we've done a lot, but if I kept going this blog would be eight pages long!!

I'm so glad you are back! Wow you have had a busy eight months....but it is so awesome to see how the Lord has blessed your family! Congrats on your newest addition. I wish we could sit in a car and talk for hours about our crazy lives like we used to...we'd have a lot to talk about! I'm excited to hear all about raising turkeys and to see your garden! Love you.
