Rauly was sick most of last night coughing and congested - which means mommy was up most of last night rocking her back to sleep and trying to soothe her. :( Thankfully she didn't really start to show signs of being sick till after our families LLC (Ladies Luncheon...not sure what the C stands for!...guess I should find out, huh?!). Anyways, all the women who are in Chad's family who live in this general area got together at Jenny's house (that is Chad's sister). We had such a great time and here are a few pics from yesterday evenings shin-dig.

Since Rauly was sick last night, I decided to stay home with her this morning. My two good lookin' boys got ready for church and Rauly and I waved goodbye as they headed out the door. I really hate missing church! Ecspecially when we haven't found a church home yet! Chad is visiting Sovereign Grace Ministries this morning which is a church we visited a few weeks ago. Katie recommended the church to us and we're so glad we visited because the members were all so genuine. We've received several phone calls from members and have even received a visit from one of the families. I think what impressed us the most about the church was when we received a phone call saying that several of the men and women wanted to help us move in to our condo last week!! (And we had only visited their church once!!) Anyways, we still need to visit several other congregations and I have a feeling that it'll take a while before we make a decision to place membership anywhere, but it's nice to know that we're already making progress!! Here's a few pics of my guys this morning before heading out to church...I could just imagine what Shepherd would be saying based on his expressions if he was a few years older!!

It's so good to live around family! I know Justin and I take this for granted because we are 15 minutes away from my parents and 20 minutes away from his parents. Plus, a host of other family lives close by. It's so nice. I'm glad that you guys have moved closer to at least part of your family. I'm sorry baby girl has been sick. Isn't that so frustrating? I hate when Jace gets sick. You feel so helpless. I would much rather it be me because I always feel I can handle it so much better. Everyone is sick in Arkansas. I think the weather is to blame for most of it! Love you, Shauri

The luncheon looks like a fun idea. I should start something like that with my family.
I didn't even ask you when you called me but is Rauly feeling better today?

maybe the "c" stands for crazy, or corn, or claustrophobic. Just thought I'd throw out a few "c" words for ya.

Lindsey said...

Thanks girlies - Rauly is definitely feeling better today! She's still sneezing but most of the junk in her nose and throat is gone - yea!
Terri - still haven't found out what the "C" stands for but thanks for the suggestions...pretty sure none of those were correct though! :)
Kim- I'm permanently delirious these days...but I think my friends get more of a laugh out of it than my kids do!!

That is great that you get to live around family and your kids get to grow up with aunts, uncles and cousins! Your condo looks great! You will love having a pool so close in the summer. I am glad Rauly is feeling better! Sorry it has been so long since I have left a comment. Our laptop is broken and our desktop computer is slow so I don't get on it as much. Shepherd and Rauly are so cute! Thanks for the pictures!

Hey, if Grace Fellowship Church doesn't work out for you, at least you can give me some credit for helping you move into your condo!! No, I'm kidding! I'm so glad things have worked out for you there so far. If Grace Church is anything like Cornerstone (our church in Knoxville) was/is, the members really have servants' hearts--but not in a "cheesy, please come to my church" sort of way. Yes, you should take your time in discerning which church is best for your family. There's no reason to hurry!
And, how jealous I am of you that you get to live close to family!!! I would love to have that. Have fun.

I just love all the pics and the comments you make. They always make me smile and sometimes laugh out loud. Thanks for taking the time to make this so informative, both with pics and the story behind them. I, too, am thankful you have Chad's family so close at hand and that you guys do things together! Happy Valentine's Day! Love you!
