Be back Saturday!

HEY EVERYBODY!!! Well, it's 6:50am and we are off to Knoxville to look at apartments and to attend some stuff. Jess is going to a women's retreat at Smokey Mt. Christian Camp. I'm going to a Healthy Church Conference. Please pray for our trip and for us while we look at apartments. Have a great weekend!

O.K. Here it is...

Most of you probably know this already and I've been avoiding blogging about it, but it is a part of our life so here it is....we are moving. To make a long story short, over the past several months God has made it evident to us that He has a new and different road for us to go on, as well as a new and different road for Cornerstone Christian Church. Jeremy and I will be moving to Knoxville around the last week of October. However, if we don't sell our house I will be left behind until it sells. Jeremy will be the full time preaching minister at Cornerstone Chritian Church in Knoxville. Yes, they are both called Cornerstone. There are several new and scary things ahead of us. There are also so many mixed emotions going on with us as well. We are excited to see what God has in store for us yet at the same time sad to leave the friends that we have made here. We are also very overwhelmed about selling our house here and finding a new place to live in Tenn. I've been sooooo stressed about it all this week. I even had a melt down over chicken that wasn't done on time! So we ask for your prayers both for us, and for Cornerstone here. We do truly love Cornerstone and want to see God take this church to the next level, so I pray that He puts in place the right man for the job here. We are headed to Knoxville on Thurs. to go house/apartment/townhouse hunting and then to go to some retreats that are going on down there this weekend. Oh and by the way, no matter what Jeremy says, Leo and Belle will be going with us and that's final! :-) So here it is, the blog that I have been avoiding. I'm not sure why, I guess cause it's kind of admitting that this new chapter in our lives is starting....not that this chapter now is closing, I guess it's just changing. I won't say that it's closing b/c it is so important to me to keep my relationships here as strong as possible. So anyways, Iwill stop rambling and let you get on to other blogs. Have a great weekend.

More pics of our pets

Just when you thought you had had enough of Leo and Belle....we post more pics of them! Ha Ha! We're like those people that show you home slide shows of their childhood vacations. You don't care about our pets, but it's all we have to talk about. So here ya go.....

Guess what - Leo's hair grew back!!! Now he doesn't look so stupid. He feels a lot better about himself now.

Here is Jeremy making Belle attack Leo. And you guys wonder what made her hate the world so much.

I think that Leo looks like the Cottonelle dog in this picture. He's so cute....he makes me happy.

Jeremy's Must List

Ok, I know Justin has the Must Lists, but I just watched a show that I was very impressed with. Jessica and I tivoed Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip with Matthew Perry and Bradley Whitford. The series premiere was probably the best premiere I've ever seen for a dramady. They did an awesome job with the character development and writing. It's just good to see some good tv. I'm sooooo sick of reality shows and horrible sitcoms. Anyways, check it out sometime. It's pretty good. Monday's at 10 on NBC. I'm going to bed now. I'm tired. Good night.

Crazy Animals

I know you guys are probably bored w/all the posts of our pets but let's face it...our life is boring and I'm not creative. If you want a creative blog, check out Amberlee's. If you are Amberlee, sorry about your luck. So here is a pic of Belle being a fashion diva wearing the latest in plastic Bigg's bag attire. She has always been obsessed w/plastic bags. She likes to chew on them, lay on them, and occassionally wear them like a dress. Hey, give her a break, she doesn't get out much. You should also take note of the freaky way the light bounced off of her eyes. I think this proves she either has purple contacts or really is a satan cat, hmmm...

So, Leo, is obsessed w/people food. There isn't much he doesn't like and if he does find something he doesn't care for he usually tries really hard to like it just cause it's people food and he thinks it's better than his usual Purina. So here is a pic of him trying really hard to like cucumbers. He ended up tasting it, leaving it alone, and then coming back later to eat it. Weirdo.

What were we thinking?

This is our foosball table. We bought this with Christmas money right before Christmas. When we first bought it we played it all the time. Now, I can't remember the last time we played it. And now it sits in the middle of our office where the only use it gets is when we need somewhere else to hang wet clothes. How sad is that? Oh well. It was fun when we played. But, when Mike and Amy visited their kids stayed in the office and IT WAS IN THE WAY! How crazy is that. Our foosball table went from being our most used entertainment device to a laundry rack that gets in the way. Maybe you fellow bloggers should come over sometime and make some use of this thing.

Well, Jessica and I had a couple logs left over from when Mike and Amy visited. So, we decided to make some smores. This is a picture of the always beautiful Jessica with our puppy. Leo, the big dope, almost caught his nose on fire when I threw a dropped marshmellow into the fire. The big dope went to retrieve it. Everything seemed to go well. I didn't burn the house down, so that's good. Anyways, hope you all had a wonderful weekend. We both have been sick...pretty much laying around and feeling miserable. Fun times. Hopefully, we'll feel better tomorrow for church! Alright, blog at ya later...

Our dog rocks!

This is a great picture of Leo catching popcorn. I'm not sure why I decided to post on Leo, but I guess its cause we got him this really cool collar that helps him to behave while walking him. Actually, we let the dog stay over at a friend's house and the lady that walked him realized that he's hopeless and gave the collar to us. Anyways, he walks really well now. He also does this cool trick where we'll throw the popcorn up in the air and he catches it. I'm pretty sure Leo is addicted to popcorn like his daddy. Anyways, Leo is chewing up our new pillows...gotta run!

A Great Visit

Jessica and I had a great time this weekend as our friends Mike and Amy Kupferer visited. They brought with them their two children Nathan and Wes and their dogs Sadie and Sticky. We had a great time watching their dogs as they visited old friends, grilling out, and making smores around the fire. It was also really good to catch up on life. Mike's been my best friend since jr high we have lots of history.

Here's a pic of Jessica with little Wes around the campfire. He fell asleep on her very quickly which we were told he does not do often. She's going to be such a great mother!!!

This is Sticky (on the left) and Sadie (on the right) after our one mile walk. I think Leo wore them out. He doesn't have very good boundaries.

Here's a pic of Nathan's first smore. I think he liked it, but he was really cautious of creepy Uncle Jeremy :-) who made the smore for him.

It was a great Labor Day Weekend for us. We hope you all enjoyed yours!

Wake Me Up When September Ends

So this is the last un-official weekend of summer and I'm sad. Summer is my favorite time of year and this means that it all has to come to a close. Also, we have enjoyed very hot weather lately and it seems that as soon as September 1st hit, the termperature dropped. It's now 67 degrees out, that may not seem very cold but it certainly feels it when you go from the 80s to that. I like the fall time, but I'm still bummed that summer is over. On the up-side, our friends Mike and Amy Kupferer are coming to visit tomorrow evening until Tuesday morning. They are also bringing their two kids and two dogs so our house will be extra-busy. Maybe that will distract me from the dropping temperature and the signs of summer being over. We are also going to the Honeycutts for a grill-out. I mean, what would a holiday be without a trip to the Honeycutts right? Have a good weekend everyone. I'm sure we'll have some pics to post of our weekend later on.
