Life is Grand!!

Hi Everyone!
Life has been incredibly busy lately.
I am really enjoying having my own home, and my own husband.
Setting up our apartment has very enjoyable, and learning to cook for a family of two instead of a family of ten has taken some getting used to. :)

I recently had the flu... and my darling hubby took good care of me. Thankfully he didn't catch it from me.

Last week we had the youth group over for an activity night. 6 teens showed up with hungry tummies! Justin is their Sunday School teacher, and has recently been put in charge of the youth group. I am looking forward to future youth activities!

This past Saturday we went to the church to help with cleaning up the grounds for the Harvest Fest, my father-in-law treated us to fresh bakery goodies!

I will hopefully be posting wedding photos soon, they are done and I have to pick them up.

We also went to the Big E!!
That was alot of fun!

Keep an eye on my New blog for more photos and posts.
I will be making the complete transition to my new blog sometime this fall.

God bless,

Fun Times

We recently celebrated a few birthdays for my mom and two of my brothers!
My family came over last week to visit so Justin and I had a small surprise birthday celebration for them! In the picture above my brother Collin is laughing at the gift we got him. It was a toy "cat food" can with little toy sardines in it. We filled it with candy for him. It was a fun evening!

This past Sunday was the official beginning of Justin and I heading up the youth ministry at his church. Justin has been teaching the teen Sunday School class for a few years now.
This past Sunday we had the teens reenact a Bible story from I Samuel 15.
Justin played Samuel, the girl played King Saul (she did a terrific job!)

Justin's cousin played King Agag.

We had alot of fun with the reenactment!
We will be having all the teens at our apartment soon for a youth activity... this should prove interesting!

Married life is going well. Finding new things out everyday about each other! The most interesting thing I have learned about my Justin so far is......
He REALLY likes Chinese food! lol.

I love being married!!

So... made my first official newly-wed blunder that I can laugh about.
We needed to be at a place one evening for 6pm.
Since we had a busy day Justin and I decided to take a nap in the afternoon. I was in charge of setting the alarm for 5:30pm.
Which I did. However I set it for 5:30 AM.

By the time the mistake was discovered it was too late.


Next time I will double check the AM/PM!!!

God bless,

My husband wants to try our creative ability at doing a photo-comic blog type...thing.
I am not too sure if we could pull off the idea,
so he asked me to ask my readers if you think it would work?
What do you think??

keep checking my new blog for more honeymoon photos coming soon!

Slowly finding our belongings day by day... with boxes still here and there near and far between our parent's homes and our apartment. Still looking for my electric griddle and a box of hangers. The good news is that we do have the essentials, like clothes, dishes and towels!

I keep wondering where on earth I got so much junk- not to mention crazy enough to pack it! I am keeping the trash can full!

Finding small ways to decorate my home, Justin had these tiny little bud vases and the lily looked quite lovely.

Justin's grandparent's took us out for lunch one day. Aunt Jackie went too but I didn't get a picture of her.

It was very nice to spend time with all of them! Justin's grandparents and aunt are all very sweet. :)

God bless,
