Can't be TOO ready!

I just boiled pacifiers to sanitize them. Pretty sure I'll laugh at myself that I did that in 6 months or so!

Prayer Request-House!!

Hello Friends and Family!!

A PRAYER REQUEST! We have a CASH offer in for our house! We're going to be submitting paper work to the Bank this weekend, so here's how you can pray specifically:

-The bank accepts the new offer

-The buyer (who is a Christian and knows some of our story this past year) will continue to go through with the purchase

-Everything goes smoothly and the house is out of our hands by the end of this month!

We're so thankful for our prayer warriors out there and all of you who have been on this "exciting" journey with us. I'm trying to not be cynical or jaded about any past offers or how we've had our hopes up numerous times. I believe God is doing all this in HIS PERFECT TIMING.

"Answer me when I call to you, O my righteous God. Give me relief from my distress; be merciful to me and hear my prayer."-Psalm 4.1

We love you guys,

A Blizzard in 2011 and I'm not talking about Dairy Queen.

Our 1st BIG Blizzard happened in Iowa City! It snowed all day yesterday with tons of wind to go with it. *This morning I was supposed to work at 6am and I ended up back in bed by 6:10 because I attempted to drive to work and I guess I beat the plows for day. *I slept in cause I'm trying to kick a cold I've had for a week.*I went for my walk and the following is what I saw...

tiny paths to follow

pretty trees
the snow was past my knees!
thats our place behind all that snow

8 degrees never looked so pretty to me.

Another perk of living in the Midwest...

One of my BFF's from
College lives 'close'!

My bf from college called me to see if I could 'meet' her in Minneapolis (Fargo, where she lives is 3 hours and I'm about 5 hours...totally do-able!) this past weekend and I was able to! Her and Blake (her husband) were going to be there visiting some other friends so her and I got together at this cute cafe Saturday morning in White Bear Lake, MN. I unfortunately had a HORRIBLE cold (and I don't take anything being pregnant) so I felt like it was all a dream! But I'm SO thankful for our time together friend!

This is A picture of Keys Cafe. From google images. In the summer. Ha! It wasn't this sunny in Minnesota! I'll get this "take-a-picture-of-everything-for-your-blog thing down!

Half way there!

Baby T at 20 weeks! Our little thinker. Oh, and check out that bicep. ;)

Happy New Year!

Jeff and I had a couple open days around New Years so we took a 'quick' spontaneous trip to Lincoln Nebraska! We stopped over at the Kirk's house before their new years party and felt like we had a party with their daughters, Amani & Finley. Jeff and Troy have been friends since high school and it' always SO nice to see him, his wife Chelsey, and their adorable family.

We had a dance performance.
We made this trip to see 'off' the Harmons who were leaving for Madrid, Spain for 5 years. They are church planters through Avant and we're so sad they have left but we're so excited for all they are going to be doing! Hasta Harmons!

Snapshots of Christmas in Iowa

Our Couples Connection Group 'Ugly Christmas Sweater Party'! We've had such a great time getting to know these people!
A more serious "decent" one. :)

Weckerly Christmas here in Iowa! More pictures to come from Mom's camera!

Jeff in awe of all baby's gifts!
One would think, I've been REALLY good this year, but truth be told, a lot of those are Baby T's gifts. :)
Baby's 1st UND shirt (University of North Dakota)! Sorry Angela, I know you're cringing! Uncle Jordan's started baby's wardrobe off!
