Holiday Traditions

The last three years we have enjoyed a very special tradition for getting our tree, we go to costco with the Myers, have dinner, get our tree, and then go to Starbucks and get hot chocolate! Our kids love it and look forward to it every year. This year Carson is starting to understand what is going on and kept talking about going to get our "mismas tree." He was amazed that we got to put it in our house! Here are some pics from our adventure:

We will greatly miss these dear friends God has given us! We already have a camping trip in the making and they are coming down to visit!

Northridge, CA - Our New Home

The last few months have brought about much change for our family. The biggest change being that God is moving us to Northridge, CA to plant a church. God has been growing our hearts toward being in an area where there is a need for the gospel to go forth, and Northridge is where He is taking us. We are excited about this next chapter in our lives and all of the ways in which we will be able to watch God work. We are also sad as we will greatly miss our family and friends that God has blessed us with. It has been a sweet blessing to be close to our families the last 6 years and we thank God for it.

This last weekend Tim, Caitlin, Grace, and I took a trip down to Northridge to spend time with people and to look for housing some. It was a very encouraging trip. The girls were troopers as we drug them all over the place and enjoyed seeing where we will be living and making new friends. We are not able to secure housing yet as we do not have all of the support we need. However, in the meantime we have a place we can stay until we are able to get a place. God is definitely teaching me about depending on Him, being flexible, and trusting! We will be moving right after Christmas so the next few weeks will be pretty hectic. They will also be bitter sweet as we enjoy last times with friends and family and say goodbye.

Hopefully I will be able to update and put some pictures up before we move, but if not, you know why!
