Josh actually started hanging the house lights the day before Thanksgiving so that his little sister could see them when she came to our house that night. We have a row of color LED lights and a row of LED icicles lining the front of the roof. Then Thanksgiving night I wraped our mini chrismas trees in the front yard with colored LED lights and put up the white swirl christmas trees. And finally, tonight Josh and I finished off our decorations with the deer in our front flowerbed, which were a black friday purchase from Garden Ridge (the only black friday purchase that I actually made this year since I over slept).This is a picture of our beautiful tree that we have in the front yard. This picture does not do it justice. It's leaves are so vibrant in the fall when it changes colors. When I took this picture, it had a little bit green, yellow, and orange.
I took these two pictures for possible computer background wallpapers.
And finally these are pictures of the flat iron travel case that I made for my sister Jennie for a late birthday present.

We were both starting to stress a bit over needing to find renters since we close on our new house tomorrow morning. I've been praying more frequently about it and trying to remain patient and trust that God would provide us with the renters that we need, and today He answered our prayers and gave us more than we had even hoped for.
Not that long ago, Josh called to tell me that a little old lady was trilled about renting our house. She absolutely loves it. She wants to plant flowers there because she enjoys gardening. She will be moving in the day that we had hoped to have renters by, and she plans on staying there until she dies or her children move her to a nursing home. She said that finding our house was a real blessing for her because she's been having trouble with bad neighbors and our house is in a really nice, quiet neighborhood.
She only had one request...that we paint the final bedroom that needs painting a light yellow....$25.00 for a can of paint, we can definitely handle that!
Josh and I are so excited and releived to know that the financial burden of paying two mortgages has been lifted and to know that God is looking down and taking care of us.
God is Good :)

Lastly, this is a picture of the back yard. Our house sits on a 1 acre lot. There is both this back yard and there is also a huge side yard.
We are set to close on the 18th of this month, so I am using a little time off of work this week to pack and get ready for the big move! Also, we are trying to find renters for our current house. We want to rent it out by October 1st. Josh made a sign for the front yard that we've gotten several calls off of and a few tours, but no definite renters yet. We're praying for someone to rent soon!

That means no more studying (after I do my self-study ethics coure). And no more having to miss out on activities.
This also means more time for doing the things I enjoy like spending time with Josh, scrapbooking/card making, sewing, and cooking. Also, I will be getting more invoved at church, which is something that I miss.
Thank you for encouraging me along the way and keeping my success in your prayers. I am blessed to have such a wonderful and supportive family and group of friends. : )
PS - There is much more news to come....hopefully soon. I wish that pictures loaded faster on here.
I really wish I would have taken a picture of the vendor fair. There were people EVERYWHERE. It was impossble to walk arround without bumping into someone or being bumped into.
Stay tuned....more posts coming soon!
PS - Can't believe that I beat my sister blogging about this! Kudos to me :) Do they still make kudos granola snacks?
