There has been lots going on in our little family! I will update with pics as soon as we get our computer set back up.
We moved into the new house December 10th. Never will I move during Christmas again! Not that I want to move again. :). It put me way behind on shopping and even just getting the house ready.
We also got word of an adoption! The baby GIRL ( Carley Allison) is due April 24th. We are praying hard that this adoption goes through. I will have to post about how God has worked in all of this. This baby already has an amazing story.
Hoping to totally redo my blog ASAP. Now with us living away from all of our family I really want to keep then updated.

Hey everyone! I am linking up with Kelly and Crokpotalooza 2 today. I am obsessed with my crock pot lately. I love that I can just throw something in there and not have to worry about it. I also love using the crock pot this time of year for soup! We love taco soup! I didn't do the taco soup because there are already several variations up. I will do another family favorite. It is so easy. I made it last night and forgot to take pics so all of my pics will be coming from Pinterest. Sorry. Here is the recipe for BBQ pulled pork The Girl Who Ate Everything. Get ready for the super
long easy list
2lbs pork butt roast(I do larger so we have leftovers)
1 12 oz can of Rootbeer for every 2 lbs of meat
1 18 oz favorite bbq sauce for every 2 lbs of meat
Place pork in crock pot and pour in rootbeer. Cook on low for 8 hours. Meat will fall apart as you take it out of the crock pot! Discard rootbeer and put pork back in crock pot. Pull meat apart with forks and mix in BBQ sauce.
That's it! This is one of our favorites. Hope you enjoy it!

Well the house is coming along great. I don't have any updated pics because they locked us out! HA! They put the cabinets in last Friday and then locked it up. I guess I should be grateful they protect our money. :) Sam came home Friday! It was a super quick trip though. Kinda made it hard for him to leave again. He has two more weeks in training. Of course, he is training in VEGAS. Um, hello. 6 weeks in VEGAS. He was ready to come home after week 2. We are thinking of switching Jake to a different school. He isn't happy because he wont be able to ride his bike to and from school everyday. I just want to make sure we are comfortable with where he is and in an environment that shares the same beliefs we do. Sorry no pics this post. I promise to be better with blogging and pics later this week. Have a blessed Friday! Jessica

What a beautiful day! So beyond thankful for the cooler temps. It has been crazy hot here this week. I think it got up to 106 on Wednesday! Anyway, today was the start of the fall soccer season. Jake has played soccer since he was 4 and loves it! This year is very different though. Burleson is much more competitive than Texarkana was. They are even allowed to have goalies. Jake was picked to be a goalie this year! I have to admit that I think that is exactly where he needs to be!

Wahoo! Jake started second grade this year. He is by far the tallest kid in his class. He is kinda proud of that one.
We have walls! I didn't get to make it out to the new house yesterday so I was shocked to see what they had accomplished!

I finally have pics that I can share!! We have settled in the rent house, finally. Jake has made a few friends in the neighborhood. I love being here in Burleson. It is close enough to Ft.Worth to go and have fun, but it is far enough to still feel like a neat small town. We have everything finalized for the new house and they have already started construction! The date to officially move in is December 14th, but they figure it will be done before then. David Swafford has been amazing to work with. Highly recommend his homes to anyone. Here are some pics of the beginning process! I will keep posting pics as stuff changes.
