Spring Happenings

For those that follow my blog, you may have been wondering why I haven't blogged for almost two months. If you are Facebook friends with me, forgive me because this post is a repeat of what you have seen on Facebook over the last two months. At the beginning of March our family had found a house that we were going to move to. My time was spent taking care of my family and packing for a move. My time for my blog page was put aside so I could focus on moving. However, the house we were going to move to fell through so we quickly had to find another house because we already had all of our stuff packed and had made arrangements to be moving within a certain time frame. I praise God that we found another house quickly and we were still able to move within our timeline. Our big theme was keeping our faith that God would work through the chaos of things falling through and having faith that God would work quickly. God did work quickly. Our faith got even stronger during our move. The verse in the picture below was our theme verse. That was our March.


So far April has not been as hectic as March. The beginning of this month was spent unpacking and settling into our new home, which we really love! The weekend that we moved was also the weekend of my baby shower. For those that have not read previous posts, we are expecting our 5th baby, a baby girl! My sweet friends threw me an amazing baby shower for our baby girl. I am so thankful for my friends and how much they love our family. I am thankful for all of my family and friends that came to my baby shower and showered our baby girl with love.  Here are pictures from my shower:









My mom and I. So glad she came to my shower!

4 generations, of course Leliana is still growing. :)

29 weeks exactly at my shower.

My sister in law is having a boy and is due 2 weeks after I am. My mother in law is excited to have two new grandchildren to spoil!





Our family is very excited for the arrival of Leliana Rose. Our boys are excited to meet their sister. They said they are going to protect her! My csection is 8 weeks from today and we have our last ultrasound next Monday. The next 8 weeks will be busy as we prepare for Leliana's arrival and has we close the end of the school year with our older two boys. I'm glad our move is over and we can relax a little more before Leliana's arrival.

Our spring has been sprung with a lot of busyness, but in that busyness we found so many blessings. If you find yourself in chaos, just remember to look for blessings among the chaos. There are blessings all around you!
