2008 Holiday Photos

Most of you know that I always send out photo cards for Christmas. I've done it since our first Christmas as a married couple and I will continue to do it forever! I just love photo cards!! Well, this year a friend of my sister in law's in Oklahoma who is a photographer took our pics in downtown Ardmore. They turned out amazing! The new pic at the top of my page is one of the ones she took! I can't post too many or you won't be surprised when you get your card! But if anyone in Oklahoma is looking for a great photographer I'd be happy to refer her!

Prayers Please!

Hey friends! Well, we got a bit of bad news regarding the house buying today and we could use a few prayers. Basically, we were told it was no problem to get our home loan with my employment contract instead of paycheck stubs since obviously I've been in school and don't start until Jan. Well, today all of the sudden our lender tells us that a contract won't work anymore and they also need a copy of my state PA license and proof of graduation OR a full 30 days of paycheck stubs for proof of my employment. NEWS FLASH: I don't have either. I don't graduate until 5 days after we are supposed to close and I won't have my license until after I take my certification exam and get my scores which won't be until the 1st of the year. So.....our lender is trying to figure out something else. Pray that they will get this figured out so we don't lose the house AND pray for my sanity as all of this really stresses me out.

Lost in the moment!

Today while I was running my iPod played a song by Big & Rich that I haven't heard in a while and it almost brought me to tears (happy tears that is). The chorus goes like this:

Lost in this moment with you
I am completely consumed
My feelings so absolute, there's no doubt
Sealing our love with a kiss
Waitin' my whole life for this
Watching all my dreams come true
Lost in this moment with you
This is really how I feel at this point in my life! Josh and I have been together for almost 12 years, married 4 1/2 and I love him more today that I ever have! We are moving into such a wonderful time in our life....me graduating PA school and starting a wonderful new job, buying our first home together and thinking about starting a family in the next year. It is so much of what I have always dreamed for my life with Josh and its all happening! We are soooooo blessed! I am reminded of God's love for us each and every day and I am so amazed at His plan! HE and HE alone deserves all the praise!!!!

Our 1st Home!

Hi everyone! Well, we're in a contract on a house! After lots of going back and forth, we finally agreed and are about to be homeowners! (As long as the inspection, appraisal, and all that stuff go as planned)

Here are a few pics! Sorry, I don't have more. These pics are with the current owner's furnishings, so look past that! Its 3 bedroom 2 bathrooms with formal living, formal dining, den and a HUGE backyard! AND...its just around the corner from our amazing family (Marc & Tiffany). The kitchen is my favorite!!! Keep us in your prayers that all the minor things continue to work out perfectly and if so, we close the middle of December!
