Knoxville's First Snow

Ok, its not the first snow here...but the first time it has stuck to the ground long enough for us to take a picture :-). I predict that by midday the snow will have melted away. Surprising enough, Knox County Schools are still in session. The whole city usually shuts down at the thought of snow!

Here's a great picture of Jessica beating me up in a boxing game on Wii. She's really good at boxing and bowling. She's really bad at golf. We just got Mario Party 8 and we LOVE it. We also got Rayman Raving Rabbids 2...its pretty cool...but not as good as the first one. The games are not as good (especially the dancing ones), but it does allow for four players to play a series of games to compete for a high score of your choosing. That part is WAY better then the first one. There's an older couple in the Church who also have a Wii...and love it. She's all the time bragging about the 250 she bowled. Its sort of weird to see even grandparents into this thing!

Finally, a picture of Leo and Belle getting along! The other day Belle jumped up in bed with Leo and us. She's really starting to warm up again to us and now she's warming up to Leo. But, don't worry Amberlee, she's still Satan incarnate :-).

A Change in Plans

We have withdrawn our offer on building a house. Last week I found a mistake on my taxes (which were already sent in), and so we've decided to go a different route. It was a difficult decision, but we both agree that it will be best in the long run. So, we're back to square one. We still hope to be in a house before the baby is please pray for us as we seek God's direction for our lives.

In other news, Jessica had a high blood pressure reading last time she was in for a check the doc put her on some medicine. Now, she's back to normal! However, she's still got the whole morning sickness thing going on. We'll know in 7 weeks or so the sex of the baby. You can be sure we'll post that pic!

We've had a sudden growth at CCC. Its been exciting, but that coupled with school has kept me off of blogger. I'll try to do better :-)

A Spending Spree

Hello bloggers! We haven't blogged in a while so here's a couple updates...

1. Jessica is doing GREAT! She had a little problem with her blood pressure a couple weeks ago and now she's taking blood pressure meds and Monday she went in and they said its back to normal. We were a little nervous there for a while.

2. We decided to build a house. Here's a picture of what its going to look like...

We put down our earnest money Monday and our tentative date for completion is June 30. So, it's just around the corner!

3. We bought a wii!!! I was at Sam's yesterday browsing around and I noticed that they were all out of PS3's and XBOX360's but they had some tickets for Wii's. So, I was like, "Do you guys actually have some in stock?" The lady whispered back, "Yeah, we got 25 in this morning." So, I got one for regular price (Ebay is selling them for like $100 more). I traded in my PS2 and games and got some money to buy some controllers and games. FUN TIMES! Anyways, probably not the best financial decision, but ultimately it was for the baby :-)

That's all our new news. Hope everyone is doing well. They should start breaking ground in two weeks, so I'll start posting pics of the updated house. I'm sure my posts won't be a cool as the Murphy's when they built their house...but I'll do my best!
