Abby is growing fast, getting tall, and maturing right before our very eyes.  It really does seem like yesterday she was crawling around messing with everything she could get her hands on!!!  She loves to cook and helps me out with dinner often.  She is doing well in school.  She decided to switch from gymnastics to piano and voice.  She is happy with her decision, learning lots, and doing well.

Kyndal is getting pretty tall herself.  The girls definitely get their height from their Daddy.  She is a great helper around here, especially with cleaning, and she does a great job.  She too, is doing really well in school.  She also decided to switch from gymnastics to dance.  She is taking a hip hop class at a Christian dance studio close by and she is loving it!

Anna Claire is learning so much this year.  I love to watch her interact with her class.  She loves playing with her baby dolls and play dough, and plays well by herself....finally.  She is still doing gymnastics and continues to get better and better each week.  She keeps us laughing around here!

HaHa, funny photo before church:)

Craig and I are still running, but for us, it's treadmill season.  Lots of folks around here like running outside in the cold, but we absolutely do not.  We are however running the Turkey Trot this year for the first time.  It's the same running club that puts on the Freedom Run that we always do on the 4th of July.  The Turkey Trot usually has 1200 runners and the Freedom Run usually has about 400.  Too funny!

The grocery store here finally started selling Halo Top protein ice cream.  I've been wanting to try it for a long time.  It did not disappoint.  They only had 3 flavors, and the mint chip is delicious.  It has great macros and very few ingredients with words you can pronounce.  Win Win!!!  Now, they just need to sell more flavors!

I'm studying to get my personal training certification.  I should be finished in January.  A new gym opened here in town and a friend knew the owner and asked if I would be interested in working there.  I began this month working the evenings.  I'm learning lots and loving it!  The pic below was just before I left the house for my first day of work!

We went to a corn maze with some friends a few weeks ago. It was a beautiful day and we had lots of fun!

We were planning to have a trick or treat event at our church the Saturday night before Halloween, but it got cancelled and the girls wanted to trick or treat, so we went to a couple of neighborhoods in a nearby town.  Anna Claire was the only one with a costume, so Abby and Kyndal tried to come up with something......ball players it was:):):)  Silly girls.  They had a fun time and got WAY TOO much candy.  No, we did not keep it all!

In June, we will have owned our house in AL for 10 years. We only lived in it for 18 months, before the Lord moved us 3 hours away for ministry. He has always provided where this house is concerned and today He allowed us to sale the house. We are beyond thankful. We know this was a gift from Him, and we are overwhelmed with gratefulness. It is such a huge relief to be done with that house!!!!

And I can't seem to find a picture of it anywhere!! Oh well, we are happy, happy, happy!!!
