A receptionist job at LifeChurch.tv opened up about a month ago. I didn't think much of it at the time, but after a few weeks and a walk up the hill one day to the main building, I felt God saying to me, "Go for the job". So I did and I got it! I start on Monday and I'm really excited about it. I have been praying for some way to be able to spend more time with the Chris and the kids, clean, cook, and do all those fun things around the house! And with the receiptionist job I will be able to. I will be working Monday-Thursday 8-3, and Friday's 8-5, so the kids and I will get home around 3:30 instead of 5:30! Love it!!! I'm sad to leave this job and those on the Media Design team, but I will still get to see them so that is good!
Chris' new job:
Chris starts a new position within First Fidelity Bank on Nov. 3. His position will be one of the eOperations Representative in the Deposit Operations department at the Corporate office, which means he will be working with the ATM cards dealing with applications, issues, and I'm not really sure what else. He is ready to do something different and learn a new aspect of the banking business. He won't have to work any more Saturdays or wear the black pants, blue shirt and tie on a daily basis. Back to business casual for him, the only bad thing is he got rid of all his business casual attire when they went to the uniforms. Oh well - small price to pay for a bigger and better job!
Please pray for us as we transition into our new positions. And of course I will keep you updated!

Isaiah has been on my heart and mind so much lately as it gets closer and closer to when he was supposed to be due (Nov. 24). I know he is in heaven and Jesus is taking care of him, but to quote our four year old, Mikah, "But, I want to take care of Isaiah". I look forward to the day when I get to hold him in my arms again and kiss his sweet head.
Thanks to Angie over at Bring the Rain for posting about tomorrow. If you have lost a baby, I encourage you to check out her blog. It has helped me in so many ways.

Spero. (Latin) to hope for, hope.
The mission of The Spero Project is to provide information, resources, and networking opportunities, equipping and encouraging individuals and local churches to meet the needs of a global community in innovative, effective, and exciting ways.
Chris and I are thrilled to have helped them a little bit along the beginnings of their journey and are looking forward to helping them as much as we can in the future. Chris is actually on the Board of Directors (sounds so offical!) We are very excited to see the impact the organization will make, not only within our communities here in OK, but other communities as well! Show them some love and check out The Spero Project!

Because Chris and I are about 2-3 months from paying our last credit card off!!! We still have a small bank loan and medical bills, but it is so stinkin' exciting to be so close to being debt free! We will have to be extra frugal with our bucks to make sure we stick with our monthly budget and continue the debt snowball that we started 2 years ago. It's been a slow process, but it's great when you can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. I will keep you updated and of course you will be the first to know when we are DEBT FREE!!!

Labor day Weekend will be the last weekend the pool is open, so we are planning on heading there one last time for the kids to play, swim and soak up some sun!

I am laughing hysterically because I won 10 votive candles - they just kept piling them on and I wasn't sure I was going to make it back to our lane without dropping them all! I thought it was stinkin funny!
Our friend Jeff won $25.00 cash - we were all very jealous of that prize!
This is Jeff's wife Asia - she works with Chris at his branch. She didn't win anything, but hey they had some stylish FFB tote bags for everyone to take, so I guess that's something!

Chris and Gavyn taking pictures at the "Bean" in Millenium Park before we head over to eat some Chicago stuffed pizza at Giordano's! YUM!!! After dinner we walked/shopped on Michigan Avenue and then it was back in the van to head to Davenport, IA to meet up with the rest of the family!
You can't go to the Davenport area with out stopping at the John Deere Museum in nearby Moline, IL. There were HUGE tractors the kids could climb in and pretend to drive. Here is a picture of Mikah and his cousins Grace and Hannah.
After the musuem we headed to my mom's cousins house to have dinner and visit with all of the extended family. Gavyn with her cousin Grace (Gavyn loved this rocket swing)! Somehow this was the only picture we ended up with, I think our camera was dying and since everyone else was snapping pictures we figured we would let them take 'em! It was a funfilled LONG weekend, but well worth it to see family again. Our next one is in 2 years in MN - here we come Mall of America!!!
P.S. For those of you wondering if we liked the "boyfriend" - the answer is a YES! He was very nice and great with the kids! We gave Fran our approval!!!

And tomorrow will be a sad, sad day. Our friends John and Breanne Blanchard and their son Malachi will be moving back to Cali. We will miss them so much and of course are already planning a trip to meet them in Vegas in a few months! They have been our best friends for the last year or so and we are so blessed to have them in our lives.

And of course he added the Heart Support and Toms Shoes logos once we got home to properly represent!!! I'm thinking he did a pretty good job, they kind of look like us! :)
