February - March ~ Feb 4th (Butch's bday) we moved in a house on a 50 acre farm that we found for rent. We absolutely love it here. God really blessed us with this place. It gives us the privacy that the country living gives you and peace and quiet (well when all the birds aren't chirping, but that's a beautiful sound you don't hear in the city!)
In March we just continued settling in....
In April, Butch started the best job he has ever had. I had a birthday on the 5th and my baby boy turned 3 on April 24th!!! We just had a small party at home with family. It's so hard to believe he is preschool age. He amazes me everyday with everything he knows and has learned. He is using sentences and we can understand him MOST of the time!! :)
OHH I also did my first senior portrait session/family session! Dane and his family are just the best and I had a great time with them for 3 hours! :)
Ok, so May was a very eventful month....first, Butch and I went away for our anniversary on May 11-13. We went to Gadsden for the first time together and spent some time at Noccalula Falls. The color on some of my pictures is messed up when they upload...but you can get the idea.
Second, I went to Dane's graduation and had a great time....I used to babysit this kid and now he's graduating - CRAZY!

First kisses in 5 days - special reuniting

hugs before Ry had to leave :(
Due to the seizures Butch had to go a certain period of time without driving and so that left me as designated driver. With me working three days a week..I was getting up at 4 am getting ready for work, taking Butch to Pell City, taking Ry to Dana's and then to Homewood for work. Round trip was 150 miles a day - without other errands or stops! It was a 2 hour trip in the morning and the afternoon. Sooo...I had to quit my job. But I know God is going to be with us every step of the way. It's been really good for a family to be together so much. God definitely knows what we are in need of!

Then in June, my brother in law, Mark, got married and we celebrated with them.
And here we are, at the end of July in 2012....and just got finished with VBS!!
And then...finally, Dane's graduation party that was so much fun. I'm glad I had the opportunity to be a part of it from beginning to end.
So there you have it in a nutshell!! I hope you enjoyed all the "catch up" :)
