Long time no blog!

Wow, it has been awhile hasn't it. I guess I went through a bit of bloggers fatigue. I missed my blogging friends though, so I wanted to come back! Not much has changed since I last blogged. Jeff is still looking for a job. He has sent out almost 300 resumes now, and has had 2 phone interviews. He has another phone interview on Wednesday. We are just believing that God has a perfect job for him! Evie lost her first top tooth, and I have to say she looks adorable. I have to giggle every time I see that gap-toothed grin :). Her other front tooth is now quite wiggly, so she may have two missing front teeth here in a few days!

We had some family pictures taken a few days ago. It was supposed to be a gorgeous, 70 degree day. It ended up being 50 degrees and gloomy. We about froze taking the pictures, but we were able to do it quickly. We got some nice ones. We took about 30 pictures with just our tripod. We didn't include the dog this year. It was too muddy, and we were too freezing to mess with it! Hope you all are doing well. I have missed you!

Helloooo Jen! Boy I've missed you! :) I've been thinking about you and was wondering how you and Jeff were making out! It sounds like there is major competition out there! God will provide, He is faithful. Evie is cute! Isn't it something how a lost tooth can change their appearances? And your family picture is really nice. You are looking GREAT!

p.s. Jen, if you squeeze about 3-4 fresh lemons and mix the lemon juice in ( about 7 cups)of water and stir powdered stevia extract in to taste ( the NOW brand has no after taste) you get some pretty good tasting lemonade. We like it here anyway. It's like drinking refreshing water with a light lemony taste. MmmmMmm! Just thought I'd share that with you if you were interested in a sugar free drink.

It's good to see you back. Those are great photos. I hope your husband finds a job very soon!

Aww, thanks Daisy! You are so sweet. I've missed you too! Thanks for the idea for the lemonade. My mother-in-law makes that all the time, and Evie loves it. I completely forgot about it, so thanks for reminding me. It works great with limes too. My sweet tooth is getting a little better, but I still crave sugar. I've been making lots of smoothies, which helps.

Thank you SchnauzerMom! It is good to be back :). I'm amazed that the pictures turned out as well as they did since we were so freezing cold!!

Yay! Jen is back! :) I'm so glad to see you and your family. Ya'll look great!

Y'know, when I got laid off in the past, I ended up with a much better job in the long run. It turned out to be the best thing, even though I didn't know it at the time. It's how I found the job I'm in now, the best I've ever had.

Faith is such a wonderful thing... and I know you know that. :)

April, it is good to be back :). Thank you for your encouraging words! I really believe Jeff is going to get a better job. He has an interview next Tuesday, and we both have a really good feeling about this job :).
