Sick Sick Sick!

As many of you now know I am in fact pregnant with #2! I know that many of you think that I am CRAZY, but this is actually a great thing for my family. We are soon to move to Altus OK where there will be nothing to do and my husband will, for probably the only time in his career, be working regular hours and coming home every night. We are taking full atvantage of the OK as family time. Meanwhile we are still in South Carolina I had my last day of work on Easter Sunday and I have spent every day this week lying on the couch with a bowl next to my head. The morning sickness, or rather all day sickness, has stormed in like a wrecking ball and I am still trying to catch my breath! Today is the first day I have felt like getting out of the house and was actually hungry, hungry for a big juicy hamburger
and my sweet sweet husband got me one! I am feeling happy and full!
Please keep us in your prayers as we know of several couples who have had miscarriages lately. We know that everything is in God's hands and we trust in Him completely, the power of prayer is amazing and God can do great things with it! Have a great night!

Happy Easter

Hope that you all had an Excellent Easter! Of course Easter being my busiest time of year and Jesse having to work a 12 hour shift meant that DJ had to spend 12 hours Easter Sunday at church!! Thank goodness he loves it there! The children's ministry staff got together for a potluck Easter Lunch in between services while DJ got a good long nap in the nursery. We had an amazing turn out of nearly 1500 children learining about the ressurection of Jesus at Seacoast Church, what an incredible blessing to be a part of something so BIG for the kingdom of God. Easter was not all work, we also had a good time hunting for Easter eggs with our playgroup on Tuesday! I think DJ might one day really get on me that I put him in blue bunny ears, but have you ever seen a cuter bunny?

Goodbye South Carolina

Well as the family gets ready to pack up and leave South Carolina we decided to start a blog so that we can keep in touch with the AMAZING friends that we have made out here. Seacoast Church has blessed us with more than friends we have found family there. I found the passion in my life, children's ministry, there. And our first child was dedicated to the Lord there. And the wives! I have found friends that I can share life with for the next 20 years! No matter where we go or what we do an Air Force wife will always understand what I am going through! Thank you so much to all of you that have taken care of me when I was sick, for taking care of DJ when I needed a break, for coming to the hospital every time I had a pregnant scare, for babysitting and refusing to take payment, for inviting me and my family to your houses for every single holiday, for running random errands for me when I was unable, for loving my son like he was your own, for celebrating my husbands return from a long deployment like he was your brother. Thank you for the prayers, the encouraging words, the compliments, the smiles, and the incredible love that we have felt here in South Carolina!! This is such a special place to us, we will always come back here to remember that this is where we got engaged, where we had our first house, our first baby, my first real "big girl" job, and our first opportunity to know what it is like to have a family made up of people who aren't even related to you. Goodbye South Carolina we will miss you terribly but we promise to come back to visit!!
