I just wanted to inform the blog world that we are moving this weekend. Sunday after church we will begin the trek from Levelland to Naples, TX. Naples is in North East Texas close to Mt. Pleasent, Texarkana, Longview, etc. I will be back with pics and such sometime late next week. We would greatly appreciate your prayers as we make this move and being serving at a new church.
I just wanted to share this image from yesterdays sonogram of Jack. They said he looks great and he is already getting big. He already weighs 3 lbs 7 oz and we have 10 1/2 weeks to go! I am betting on a 9 pounder this time. We are so thankful for all of your prayers for us as Jack grows and as we are getting ready for our move. We load the truck on Saturday and move on Sunday and Monday. Michal Kate is really starting to feel the anxiety of moving, so pray for her and for us as we try to help her make this transition as smooth as possible for our kids!
Our Easter weekend began with a wonderful layer of white fluffy snow. We took the kids out and let them hunt some Easter eggs in the snow. They weren't sure what to think of the combination of Easter eggs and the snow but they had fun all the same. Sunday morning before church the kids got their Easter baskets from the Easter bunny and the nicely posed for a cute picture.
We decided to take advantage of the beautiful stained glass windows at church for a family picture, and yet another picture of the kiddos together. Later that afternoon the church held an Easter egg hunt for all the kids. Unfortunately only 6 kids showed up which was kinda sad. Though the kids loved the fact that there were 375 eggs for only 6 kids to find. Noah loved climbing under the pews to find the dozens of eggs on the floor. Michal Kate had her fair share of time under the pews as well. Praise God for sending His son to die for us and be raised. Though there are a lot of fun things about Easter that are fun and make believe, the TRUTH is the best part of it all.
These are my 6 month or 24 week pictures of my pregnancy with baby Jack, yes, I am posting these about 4 weeks late being that Sunday is my day to take pictures again. Michal Kate wanted to be in the picture and she did a good job of posing. As you can see she already loves to kiss on baby Jack and give him a hug. If Jack had been a girl then his name would have been MacKenzie Lynn and Michal Kate asks us often what God did with MacKenzie? We try to explain to her that God wanted us to have baby Jack but she isn't buying it as an answer. I hope she want be too disappointed come late June early July. At almost 26 weeks I had to go to labor and delivery due to some pressure. Everything turned out to be fine. I am already dilated and he is starting to descend but they aren't worried. They did an ultrasound just to double check everything about Jack and we got a pretty good picture of his face that I thought I would share! (His face is on the right and is sideways) We can't wait to meet this precious gift!
I have been married to the love of my life for 10 years, and we have six beautiful children; our angel, Jackson Connor who would be 8, Michal Kate who is 7, Noah Paul who is 6,Jack Gordon who is 4,Emorie Elizabeth who is 2, and Elijah Richard who is 1.
