Shep lost his first baby tooth!

Shepard had an appointment at the dentist to get his cavity filled this week.  So, in between packing boxes for our move to the farm, Shepard and I paid the dentist a visit. 
Only, it turns out, he didn't actually have a cavity after all!!  Great news!
But, he did have a very loose baby tooth and he was really hoping the dentist would pull it out for him...  Dr. Hartsfield was glad to oblige and so, Shep lost his first baby tooth.  (I really LOVE the way he keeps looking in the mirror to see that hole!  He sure is a cutie!)

At our new house today!

I tried to post these pics from my phone today, but it didn't seem to work... 
Here are John and the boys at our new place!

And here is John enjoying his new ZTR!  He's anxious to mow at the new house!
Happy Birthday to my best friend!  I'm so glad we had such a wonderful day together on your birthday!
More birthday pics later...

The best birthday present ever for John!!! We got the keys to our new house today and spent the afternoon there. Absolutely a fantastic day! We enjoyed a special prayer time with the kids and then some great friends came over to see it. My heart felt so full of joy and praise to the Lord for His blessings.

Part 2 - Silver Dollar City with the Wasson Clan

Highlights from Silver Dollar City:

Josiah and Shep were able to spend most of the day riding the roller coasters with the Hoelzeman kids (they LOVED that!) while John and I hung with Will and the Beemans' little ones. So, I didn't get many pictures of the two older ones, but it was so fun to get to watch Will be able to enjoy things at SDC instead of just riding in the stroller. He's growing up!

Will's first roller coaster ride! 

Will and Elliot

Basketball - Will was soooo excited!  We had a hard time convincing him that he finally had to quit shooting the ball. :)

See Shep's hands!  (And Will thought it would be fun to try screaming this time - after all that's what you do on a roller coaster, right?) :)

See Josiah's hands...  he has transformed into a fearless roller coaster rider!

SO thankful for such a fun weekend and spending it with great family!

Branson with the Wasson Clan!

My boys counted down the days...  it was about ALL they could think about all last week.  They even checked the weather several times a day to see if it looked nice for our trip to Branson and Silver Dollar city with the cousins! :)  They were not disappointed.  We had a fantastic weekend with loads of fun!  Swimming, birthday parties, roller coasters, eating together, playing, etc...

All the cousins with Matt's cookie cake:
John will be 41 this week!
The Happy Birthday song:

I'll have to make a new post with our pictures from Silver Dollar City...  looks like I've exceeded my free picture storage with Blogger.

1922 N 45th Circle... For Sale

Our house in town...  the city house...  the 5 minutes from everything house...  the comfortable, cozy place with the sweetest neighbors ever and that has been HOME to us for the last 9 years is For Sale.  I really hope that a wonderful family will decide to make this their new home.  And so I find myself praying that the Lord will send a buyer for our home in His time and in His way...  and wouldn't it be nice if it was soon!
