I am so sorry that my blog has been left alone for so long. We just moved, and though we live no more than a few miles from town, we are not able to get Internet yet.
Things have been really busy. The house we just moved into has a lot more problems than we had thought at first. We have already had a new roof put on, several nights with water leaking from different pipes, mice galore (they are gone now), and painted several rooms, not to mention one hundred other things that have had to be done. Every single day something different breaks! Through it all, God has been teaching us valuable lessons for the heart. It has made us learn how to work together as a team and trust God when things seem impossible. God has blessed us with such great friends and family. On the first big moving day we had 13 people help and many others have come since to paint, install dishwashers, fix leaks, strip wallpaper, perpair meals, and much more. We are so thankful for all the work our wonderful friends and family have put into helping us.
I will be posting pictures as soon as possible as well as my promised "joyfulness" post. :) We would greatly appreciate your prayers.

Once you have finished both sides, twist the two bunches together and secure with a hair tie. (Picture 4)
Here are a few ideas of what to do with the pony tail ~
- Braid it.
- Curl it. (a curling iron or sponge rollers work well)
- Leave the pony tail.
- Add flowers, ribbon, or a bow.
- You can also do a Texas twist all the way around and have a pony tail over your shoulder as I did in the pictures below.
There are a few other ways I have used a Texas twist which take a little more explanation, I will post on them some other time. It is such a simple style once you do it a few times, plus you can do so many different things with it. Be creative! Let me know what you come up with, I'd love to hear!
I would like to say "thank you" to my older sister Haley for taking all the pictures for me!

Fall is absolutely gorgeous! I love all seasons, but fall is one of the best times of year. The smell of fresh cool air, sounds of falling leaves, color..lots of it! witnessing plans and goals, and the millionth portrait session of the year with my favorite four year old!

Last week I went on my first airplane ride! I loved it! Mom scheduled a time for us and some of our friends to go on a "Young Eagles" flight. I was happy to see that some of my pictures turned out, inspite of the clouds.
