Playing catch up...

Seriously...not sure I have ever gone this long from posting.  It's been crazy around here, to say the least.  Back and forth from Austin to Dallas, then back again.  We have a lot going on, and thankfully Knox has seemed to take it all in stride.  

The house is on the market, and we've had a lot of activity.  Hopefully we'll have some good news on that front soon.  We've started the process of building our house in Austin.  We're so excited about it, and can't wait for you all to come visit--after September.

Otherwise, we're just doing what we can to adapt to the craziness.  But what's new?

Here are some pictures from the last few weeks...I haven't edited any, and some are from instragram so they are blurry...but it keeps you updated.

1) We try and go to the Home Depot kids event the first Saturday of the month.  Knox got a little apron and gets to add a pin after every craft.  This one was a valentine's holder.  Once finished, it was supposed to have a heart on the front.  He didn't want the heart and asked that I paint a car on the front.  My car is pretty sad...but I only had rectangle sponge brush so don't judge.

Later that afternoon we had a birthday party to attend for our friend Alex.  Knox (and Daddy) had a great time flying down the slides at the bounce house.  The kids all had a great time...and it wore them out!

The next day was Super Bowl Sunday.  We had our lifegroup over from church, and Stephen and I decided to tackle (like that?) a fun stadium-sized appetizer platter.  So yummy!

We then headed to Austin...where Mom got strep throat and Knox got inked.

We did make it out to the park near our new house.  Knox had a blast, which made me feel even better about the location of the new digs.

Later that week we met some new friends at a park in Lakeway.  Knox had fun playing before we headed back to the big-D.

Once home, we took advantage of the great weather...this included walks and hat-stealing!

Valentine's day was perfect, and my heart is so full with my two boys!

And then just like that we were back on the road.  We were able to meet Aunt Kelly in Waco this time, and we had to stop and make sure the bears were still kicking.  

And that brings us to this week.  Knox is sick with a cold, mommy and daddy are trying to steer clear of another illness and we are plugging away.  Feel caught up?  I'll try and not go so long in-between from now on.  We're going well, just trying to stay afloat!

Southbound 35

It's true...we're headed to Austin.  Stephen has accepted a job to work for KGI Wireless, and we'll be relocating there this summer (assuming our house sells--it went on the market today).

It's been a whirlwind of a decision, but we're excited for the new start in such an amazing city.  We know you'll come visit, and we'll have room when you do!

It's bittersweet, as we're leaving friends and family here in Dallas.  However, we know that we'll be up to visit pretty frequently, so it's not a forever goodbye.  There are a lot of things we'll miss about ole D-town, and others I'm happy to party with.  Either way, change is scary and exciting all at the same time.  

We're ready for the adventure, and I'll do my best to post frequently in the interim.  But as you can see, it's been busy and I haven't kept up too well...promise I'll make it a priority.  

Please stay in touch, Dallas peeps.  We'll miss all of you!

**And if you know anyone who needs a home in North Dallas, send them my way!
