Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas! DSC06693

This year has brought so many fun opportunities and changes.

The highlights include celebrating Ronny’s 30th birthday in February with our family who came to help us dedicate Chisum, had a fun family vacation to Cape Cod, celebrated Chisum’s first birthday, moved to Colorado, and mostly enjoyed our time as a family of three (four with Hanky!).

Chisum did well meeting Santa for his second Christmas.


What a difference a year makes.


Let us Rejoice in our King who was Born to save our sins! Merry Christmas!

Celebrating Chisum’s one-year

We got some adorable pictures of Chisum after his one-year birthday that I wanted to share.

This suit was Ronny’s when he was around 18-months. The pants were a little long, but it definitely was snug around the mid-section on our big boy!

This is the tractor that Ronny restored. It was his siblings and his when they were growing up.

We’ve moved!

Well, our life has been on a little roller coaster ride and it’s been going in circles so fast I haven’t had time to update my blog!

As the title suggests, we have packed up our belongings from our beloved little house in Seward, Nebraska, and moved west to Colorado. This wasn’t an easy decision, but we are following our hearts and where God is leading our little family-of-three’s (or four, I guess we need to include Hank the cow dog as he is along for the ride!) life.

It all started back in the end of May when we found out that my parent’s neighbors were going to be moving and wanted to offer their house before they put it on the market. We went to look at it in June and did a lot of praying and number crunching to see if we could make this work and if this is what God had in mind for us.

After coming up with every reason not to, God kept opening doors, including making our finances work out, selling of our Seward house in 23 days (even doing so for sale by owner, thanks Zillow!), and providing jobs for both Ronny and I.

While it was bittersweet to leave our dear friends and great jobs in Nebraska, we are so thankful for the opportunity to be closer to family and be involved in the family ranch.

We still have boxes to unpack, things to organize, a little painting to do and furniture to buy, but we are loving life in the country, close to Nana and Papa and spending more, precious time with our little boy. We love visitors so let us know if you’re ever in the area!
All thanks be to God for His Blessings!
