We've Moved In!

God has been so good to us. The girls were great on the 5 1/2 hour flight out to Virginia, we stayed with sweet friends when we got here, and then have had an amazing amount of help moving in. We got to our house Sunday and the moving truck pulled in just about the same time we did! Soon our home was flooded with help all the way from Sunday to Wednesday. Each day people came to help us unpack, bring food, and play with the girls. Here are some photos from this week.
These lovely ladies helped on Tuesday.

Robin came by to play with the girls- she was so sweet!
(This is Maddie's room)
Kathy and Deshua helped organize the kitchen and the girls' rooms.
Here's a meal the Sunday school department brought one night- an amazing amount of delicious food!
(This looks into our family room)
Our family started to arrive Thursday. Deb, Aunt Jennifer, Aunt Dottie, Dad, Mom, Homie, Gale, Grandpa, Grandma, and Aunt Deb.

Taking a little walk in our backyard!
We can't believe how beautiful it is!!
Papa helped move the rocks so the stream flows better.
Jesse's dad gave him a really nice watch, and there's a cool story that goes along with it.
Gale and Savannah in our living room.
We are so thankful to have all our family here to support us for Jesse's installation at the church tomorrow. Please do pray for Jesse. He's got the stomach flu today (he got it from Savannah who had it the last 2 days). Please pray it won't spread to the whole family! Thanks for your your prayers and love!
