Halloween has officially passed us by for 2011. This year Kinsley was a……drumroll please…..
BALLERINA!!! Does her outfit look familiar? It should!! She wore this same exact outfit in Matt and Sarah’s wedding last month. She was so adorable in it and being the frugal mom that I am, I figured why not use it twice, especially since she doesn’t have a say yet.
We took her trick-or-treating downtown in Fuquay Varina, because they had a fun little thing where all the business handed out candy. Then, Halloween night, we took her around to a few neighbors in our subdivision, but it was so cold and drizzling rain, that we didn’t get far. Just enough for Ed to get some good candy for him. 🙂
My mom and granny came down this week to hang out with me since Ed flew out to a conference in Orlando Tuesday through Thursday. I kept them busy the whole trip with Halloween, going to visit my cousin Reagan and and her adorable kids, one of which is only 3 months old, looking for fabric for my living room curtains (which I love, especially after the sewing is finished!), and lots of other little things!!
As for me, things are WAY better than my post a few weeks ago. We are starting to learn the area, we have the house in living order, I have been able to work out regularly, we have visited a few churches and are excited about the potential there, we have had a few get togethers and really fun times with friends here, I found the library and have read some great books already!, I have been able to spend time with God regularly in the Word, and after meeting with Kai, I have been given lots of responsibilities that help contribute and serve our staff team here and will even be coaching volunteers/faculty/staff on a few of our campuses. Ed is learning his new role and starting to figure out what campuses have what going on, etc. and we are even seeing lots of fruit being harvested by the Lord on our campuses, which makes us really excited the Lord has chosen to place us here. Just since we have been here, we/our staff team have seen 4 people place their faith in Christ!!
Thanks for your prayers, friendship, and support in helping us transition and reaching Eastern NC college students for Christ!
