What a Year...

Matt was talking to one of his pastor friends this year (who he had not talked to in a while) and he when he heard that we had moved, had a baby, planted a church & gotten ordained all in one year, he was shocked!

Here is our review of 2010, Enjoy!
We found out in the beginng of 2010 we were pregnant with baby #2

Matt was getting used to working (a lot) and preaching on occasion

We were enjoying the beach & our close proximity (5 min. drive)...

In March we found out that Andrew would have a baby sister.

In May we went back to St. Louis so Matt could "walk" for completing his Master's of Divinity.

Andrew turned 2!

We celebrate 6 years of Marriage!

...more swimming

I had a girl's weekend in Tampa to celebrate my sister's 30th birthday!

Matt preformed his 1st wedding (he did 3 weddings this year)

We started getting ready for the baby...

...more swimming...

We got to have a weekend get-away with The Christiansons

This is the last picture I took before Molly came (36 weeks)

We went from a family of 3 to...

...a family of 4!

Molly Joy Loveall joined our family on July 27th at 10:54 pm...

Andrew started school, 2 days a week for just a few hours...he loves it!

After many days & nights of studying, Matt passed his exams and became ordained. He is a Reverend now!

Molly was baptized by her Daddy!

We started services in November at our church plant, Oak River Church

What a year it has been! These are just some of our highlights and we have had our struggles and joys this year! We are so blessed by our wonderful family and hope you all have a wonderful Christ-centered Christmas...

From our family to yours, Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

Catching up...

We my computer is still down, but I decided to load some pics on to Matt's are some photos of the kids over the past 2 months...

Let's start with Molly! She had a doctor appointment last week and here are her stats:
19.12 lbs (off the charts)
27 inches long (97%)
She is still a great sleeper, sleeps 10-12 hrs a night. She still nurses a lot, but I am not ready to do the food thing; she is content with my milk. She LOVES her big brother. In fact today he was playing by her and she started laughing at him. She is the happiest baby and brings me so much JOY!

I was changing Molly this night and Matt could not get over her chunks, so we had to get them on camera and of course Andrew had to join in. I think this pictures really shows how much they look alike though!

Enjoying OREO's together!

Dunking and eating...

Andrew still enjoys holding his sister!

Molly on her 1st Thanksgiving!

Matt and Andrew getting the turkey ready to go in the oven.

Molly rolled over for the first and only time...funny story- the doctor asked me if she had rolled over yet and I told her only once, and the doctor looked at her and said, "Well it is hard for that girl to roll over all that weight!" LOL, we just laughed about it!

Andrew is now completely potty trained (except for at night). He was amazing. We decided to try during thanksgiving week (b/c Matt had some time off) and Andrew did it like a champ. He had a total of 5 accidents the week we did it and not many more from there on...

Sweet baby girl!

Matt's Aunt, Uncle & Cousin came to town in early November. They loved playing with Andrew and meeting sweet Molly!

Andrew was a firefighter for Halloween. We went trick-or-treating with Grace & Caroline. Andrew loved it!!!

And...I had to add these adorable pictures. Molly loves her Uncle Kyle and you can tell by these pics...

I hope you enjoyed my 2 month run through of pics. I will try to post more soon!

Sorry for the delay...

I am having an issue with the pictures on my computer. Since I have more than 10,000 photos loaded on my computer my IPHOTO (where i load all my photos) is telling me it is full. Matt and I are working on loading some of them on to a back up but that does not seem to be working either. I have a TON of pics on my camera and lots of blogging to catch up on, but it may be a while...

So sorry! I hope I don't lose any readers...well the three of you out there that still read my blog! :)
Keep checking in...
