At least for me it is. Thanks to my kind hubby, I was able to get the pics from the broken camera to our computer. . . and voila! Here is a bit of what has been happening the last few months. I am not sure why the pics are different sizes. It could be due to the trauma they received when the camera was killed. :-) Enjoy a pictorial journey of the events where I remembered and used the camera. Many times I was too busy saying my adieus. Sniff. Sniff. For your sanity, I refrained from including millions of pics of boxes, boxes, and more boxes.
All good things must come to an end
, but in the South, we were not bid "farewell
." Not a chance. It was "farwell
." I had a good laugh over this!!!! A true Southerner was decorating that cake. For all of the Vera fans out there, the cake's colors were inspired by my Vera Bradley Java Blue purse.
Ahhhhh, yes, another
one of my projects. Above is the lovely piece after I had started changing its face. This armoire was purchased from Craigslist for only $100, but I could not handle the color! Might fit in someone else's house, but it was a major clash with my distressed furniture.
I slapped some paint on that oak finish, and it now fits perfectly
!!!!! :-) Great style of furniture when you have kids. They take a chunk out of it, and it looks like it belongs there. This close-up of a door gives a better idea.
Pre-poly state of being.
South Carolina summers call for cold treats!
Passing the time in our temporary housing. As you can see, Silas was thrilled
to stop for a picture! Yes, that is the new church steeple in the background. We really don't collect them.
We were able to visit our spot in GA one more time
! Josh also spent part of the time with us and added to our fun. I loooove eating on this porch!
It is surrounded by trees and mountain views, and I couldn't be much happier.
Vacation? Fun and
memorable. In fact, some of us laughed until we cried!
And some people really love their jeans
Afternoon hike spot. Any takers?! Perfect trail for kids. It isn't too difficult, beautiful view, lake in the middle, creek streaming into it, nature. . .
My little hiking buddy! He is a trooper.
!!!! How did that
get in here?! ;-)
Even Vera Bradley went on the hike. (Love those backsacks.)
This place calls my name
No move is complete without all of those last minute excursions with friends! Here is the Jolly Green Giant with a friend.
I soon discovered that movies make gun slinging look much easier than it is. Watch out, "bad guys!" My shot was a bit more accurate at the end of the day!
Seth was living
for this evening of shooting. In fact, he told me that he really hoped Jesus wouldn't come back before he had a chance to shoot a gun. :-)
And what would we be without some drama
?! I have no nasty arm pictures of me to post, but I just might blog one of the scar later. (I know you all are just wanting to see that one, right
?!) Ethan almost needed stitches in his head. Sigh
. . .I am not sure if my heart can handle all of his antics!
"It was the first day (clap) in the First Grade. (Clap. Clap.)"
You have to be a Veggie fan to get that one. We launched another year while waiting to move.
Our treat from the Easley Church Board! Whew! What a meal
The day finally came. It. Was. Time. Strange how attached you get to people/places in three years!
Our little caravan of worldy possessions and family left SC on August 19th. It was bittersweet as we had to leave, yet exciting as we headed into the last phase of schooling for Troy. During the moving trip I was enjoying some wonderful time of solitude in the car when I decided to ask God for a rainbow. I needed some reassurance for some fears and worries I had been experiencing. In a few moments . . .it was there! We had just pulled over for a stop, and to make sure it was my rainbow, I asked God to have it gone by the time I got out of the restroom. It was. :-) Some call it a coinicidence, but I choose to believe it really was mine.
Oh the joys that empty moving trucks and ramps bring to little boys!
First meal (I think.) together in the new house. Food at its finest. (Gag!)
We were fortunate that a group of guys from our new church helped us unload. The only snag we really ran into was there was no fridge. That got old after a few days! Sears rewarded us with the gift of a room sized fridge and a $50 gift certificate. For that, I can handle five days in a cooler!
Ugh! Not sure why I am griping since I really didn't have to do much of that.
"Uncle Tracy" was a huge help, and you know he is a good uncle as well when he agrees to play Play Doh with a little boy. :-)
Soon to come:
new house pictures.
(If I get my act together! :-)
