Ocean Breeze in November

Can I just say it's amazing living so close to the beach
I can not wait for spring and summer to get here
While my parents were down we got to take them by one of the closest beaches to us, just to get a little peek at it.
And boy am I in love., so peaceful,
 so clean and love hearing the sound of the ocean 

How crazy is it all of this is happening in November after Thanksgiving

We are getting comfortable with our new digs
found a church we like, and the kids enjoy going to
I feel like the next chapter of our lives has started

but in the midst of our happiness a stress hangs over our head
hubbys job (of which is the whole reason we moved here) is in limbo
no constant paycheck no sense of security
fear of the total unknown 
pretty bummed and scared 
hoping to push thru and get to where we need & want to be

We have a lot to be thankful for
our family & friends (who support us)
our beautiful children who makes us laugh everyday

Scenes from Turkey Day

Thought I would share some photos from our Thanksgiving dinner.,
Alot of it was spent outside watching the kids to this

While big kids assisted as they trampled through the rough stuff

Love the mane and the flannel

The little wanted to go like the big kids :( 
but settled for being a co pilot

I have to say again it was nice to celebrate with family
some close and some from far away
I can gladly say I am thankful for alot this year

The in between

Things are going pretty good here, 
I am finding my way around town and feeling more confident
 running around just me and the kids
I have caught up on putting stuff away I feel like the remaining stuff
in storage is either garage stuff or a few pieces of furniture.

Working on decorating some to make it feel more like home
and organizing and reorganizing office room stuff

Excited for upcoming visitors this week
My girlfriend and her husband are coming to stay for the 
weekend! Yay
Then Thanksgiving week my parents are coming down
We are going to host Turkey day dinner., Pretty stoked 
My bro and his crew will be joining us
Something about family and Holidays make me feel content

My Girl

Thinking about my girl today how much she's changed over the past two months., she's still my perky spunky monkey. You never know what is going to come out of her mouth never. 

Before we left home for NC her and I got to spend a week alone just her and I
By alone I mean I was done working and she was done daycare. So every morning we packed up and took the lil guy to daycare and headed out to run errands, hit the park, hit the beach for sea glass hunting. You name it we did it that week. 

Moving has been a big adjustment for her
And so far she's done great
I know she misses her friends at preschool
She's on 2 waiting lists here, We have met some kids
down the street and at the park & at sunday school

The whole stay at home mom think is harder than it looks
Trying to get moving stuff done, normal household things
and keeping them entertained is enough
But I feel like I am not devoting enough time for both or for each individually
or doing preschool like learning activities with Maddie

thanks for listening :)
don't you love her socks I let her do her own thing
