The Latest

Yesterday was crazy and very emotional, so I will update with some GOOD news...pictures of my babies!
My dear friend Ashley sent Landry this outfit and I thought it looked too cute on her! Ashley has been a good friend of mine for about 11 years and lives in Atlanta. We got the chance to meet up last summer when we were in Atlanta for my cousin's wedding. She and Jason were "wedding crashers" and came to the reception. We had a really good time!
Jake loves Landry's bows and will undoubtedly be the class clown with this face:)
This is Landry this morning when she woke up....I love the sweetness


Now onto our drama! I will preface this story by telling you we had taken our house off the market 2 months ago because Mark(Matt's brother) told us he wanted to buy our house. We put it on the market in October because we needed something bigger. Lots of our neighbors have their house for sell for various reasons, some due to job transfers, etc. But it makes selling a house difficult when there are 25 houses for sell in 1 neighborhood. So we were thrilled when Mark said he would buy it(plus that meant I didn't have to keep the house clean ALL THE TIME and leave on a minutes notice so someone could see it!)Well yesterday he told us he couldn't afford it. I have cried many tears because we are in a tough position here. Do we stay here and Matt commute or do we come to Ruston and hope to sell the house soon? I am also in the process of getting my certification complete in special education and that means I am taking 6 hours this fall at Tech, coaching cross country and that will tie me up 2 nights a week, plus Matt commuting to Ruston., plus taking care of my main priorities...2 babies!! And women are so emotional anyway...I suppose I had dealt with the realization that yes we are moving back and had been so excited once I found a job that yesterday was a HUGE letdown. So after not sleeping for 2 nights and countless prayers, I think we are going to move and rent something until we can sell our house in Benton. I told Matt it might sell once we get all these toys out of here(who knew you could accumulate SO much with babies!!). That is where we are right now. No buying a house and truthfully I really would like a 1 story house. Mom, PLEASE TURN YOUR CELL PHONE ON AND CALL ME IF YOU READ THIS:).Today, Matt has been wonderful enough to drive to Dallas to pick some of my runners up from camp, so I am here with the babies and hopefully we will get some rest. This past week has been draining:). Thanks for checking on us!

I'm sorry your week has been such a roller coaster. But, Congrats on finding a job...I think that the best thing you can do is move forward. God will work out the details, even if His timing is not what you hope. The babies are too cute! I know they must be a lot of fun, though exhausting!

Angie and I are excited that yall are moving to Ruston. Yall are more than welcome to attend our Sunday School class at Temple. We love it. There are also several other classes that are really good. Temple is a really good church with great people. Sorry to hear about your house situation. It will all work out. We look forward to hanging out and learning parenting tips from the two of you.
