Well, surprise...surprise! Things starting coming together and one Saturday a few weeks ago, Bob was at the men's Bible study group and when they prayed for him and I, it was like an instant answer as to what God wanted us to do. So, we started going through and cleaning out our office, which the lease is up on December 31st, and then we have put our condo up for sale. We called the girls and told them we were moving to Fort Collins and they went bananas! Of course, the son-in-laws are saying they want us to be closer.....we'll see!!!!
Actually, we love them all and are excited to be able to live close to them. We told our church family that we were moving a week ago and it was really tough. We have lived here for over 24 years and we love it. Also, I am the church pianist and Bob is a deacon, so that is a little sad to leave too. But, at the same time, we have such a peace about this. And, it has been a long time since Bob has been this enthused about his work. That is exciting!!!
Well, Bob and I and Jim and Marlene Bonella, our BEST friends, took a quick trip to Fort Collins to look at some condos and we put a contract on one, contingent on the sale of ours here. And so, a new adventure is going to begin in our lives.
We would ask for your prayers as we start this journey. And we will keep you all up on the action as we get ready to move!

The funniest thing that happened at Avery's party was my video of Rachel Eliana playing in the water. I had squatted down to video her and fell backwards onto my rear, all the time not being able to turn the video off....so here is the results!
I love playing in the water fountains with mommy....
Andrea and Malachi had a blast at the park in the water!!!
All in all everything got done and we are thankful!

I wanted to share a few pictures of my beautiful granddaughters (cousins) and grandson as they play together.

At the party we took tons of pictures. Lots of friends were there, but the greatest surprise of all was when my two sisters and my mom walked in the door. They flew in from Texas just that morning. And then they had to fly back out the next day. What a wonderful surprise! I had no idea that they would come and neither did anyone else except for Rachel and Brian. That was the best gift of all. We laughed so much and had a blast together. We stayed up and talked for hours of course and then the next morning we met for breakfast and talked some more.
Just not long enough together. This birthday is one I will cherish.
Thank you all for the love you showed to me. Thanks to my kids for showing their love too. I know that Nate and Andrea wanted to be there, but couldn't because of the distance. It was fun to be able to webcam Andrea, and talk to Nate on the phone.
Great fun was had by all!!!!

During one song, before she sang she invited anyone who was in a praise team to come be a backup for her. Kathy who is in our praise team came and grabbed my arm and "we" went to the stage. Of course there were about five more that joined us. I was okay until I looked at the auditorium full of over 400 women. Then Cheri had us sing: "di di dididi di". Those were our lyrics. It was a blast!
