I'm "nesting"

That is so corny. Joel rolled his eyes when I told him that.

I'm not pregnant, but I had fun writing that title and knowing you'd all wonder. I did something like that when we got Basil too.

We'll be getting some newly hatched chicks soon! Now you see why that was an EXTRA corny blog title. Their home/brooder is already set up - on the divider between the living room and kitchen. When are they coming?... oh, you know... in the next couple of months.

(That is actually a reptile light on top, but it can get the temp to 95 degrees
and has a dimmer so that we can bring it down 5 degrees every week.
It can sit on the cage instead of being adjusted on a pole.)

I was asked by a friend who owns a preschool if I'd like to adopt 3 chicks after they hatched in the next few weeks. I was so excited when Joel said yes and started planning and learning. I didn't clarify details of when, and thought she meant they were hatching in the next few weeks. Haha, I love it. Oh well, I have a better organized kitchen now. (Seriously. I moved a few things around to get things ready for the chicks and garden plants and then decided to move my china into the top of the hutch instead of in the bottom of the blue cabinet... It makes me giddy.)

Let's get caught up. Nov-Feb

Hey! It's been a while. I've been having a blast here with the two kiddos. Four months? Yeah... it has been that long. Remember how I said when something big happens, I don't post for a while because it is hard to gather all my thoughts and I like to post sequentially? Well, I didn't say it just like that, but that is probably why it happened again. And I forgot about it.

But I've been reminded of it as I've been reading a few awesome blogs and as I've started keeping up our church website/blog:, and then my husband reminds me that he actually likes it when I blog. But he likes it more when I take care of the kids, the house, and cook food, so the blog was an acceptable sacrifice.

First membership Sunday! Walking up to sign the covenant.
Oh wait. You are asking about CrossRoads Church? Yup, that would be the major life change. It wasn't an easy change for numerous reasons. It took a couple months of prayer and talking with wise people. We knew of CrossRoads, knew of some struggles, and when we visited them a few times we were even more drawn to them. We went to be part of their family and to be an encouragement. We are using our gifts: Joel is leading music and I am assisting with administrative stuff like the website, calendar etc.  The Holy Spirit is working in our church and it is a beautiful thing. You know how they say something like 20% of a church are the core and the other 80% aren't really active... I'd say this church is missing the other 80%. Our whole church is involved and eager to use their gifts. I think we have 13 signed members, and then there are 10 or so young children in those families. There are two new families that have jumped right in and have become part of the family and we just had a special service for the installation of the first Elder. Oh, God is so good! There are even a couple families from other parts of the state who have committed 6 months to help build the church up!

Our new sign! it isn't .com. that needs to be fixed.
Elders and their wives praying with new Elder, Bill

I also realized I never got to share some of my favorite pictures of Noah and Isaac from December:
