The Office

This is Craig at "work." He is loving this new position that Lord has
called him to. This night he was gearing up for a Family Night at
our church. We had a cook out and played a quiz game that everyone
could participate in. It was a lot of fun!

This is Charlie - our dinner guest last week. He tried to hide under
our napkins, but we caught him and sent him back to the Amazon.
This rescue mission went better than the last. We were left with half
a twitching tail during the previous battle.

Craig's parents came to visit this weekend! We had fun showing
them around the town, even took a trip to the Keys. We also went
up to Cocoa, where we were able to hang out with the rest of his
family. It was really fun to see them...I'll try to get a picture or
two to share soon.

Our House

Here is our house. It & the church office are
sitting on 12 acres of land. We are very greatful
for the trees shading our house & providing a
lovely view out our front window.

Living room - Mom, I modified the curtians just
a bit to make them work for this window - I
thought you'd be proud.

Dining room -opens to the living room. Sliding
doors open up to the patio.

Kitchen - The window over the sink & counter
slides all the way open. So when it finally gets
cooler (around January). We can open them up
all the way to let fresh air in, have a bar-b-q &
serve food from inside.

Our House - continued

Master Bedroom - with walk out to back patio!

Guest bedroom - aka. music, book & storage room.

Abigail's room - as you can see we have already
started a good collection of things for her.

Back patio - screened in (good thing) & spans
the length of the house.

We have most definately been blessed by the
opportunity to live here and we are still having
a great time. Culture is very different down
here, but we can't complain. Craig just had his
first opportunity to preach this past weekend.
He taught about three main aspects of worship.
It went very well & the church was encouraged.
After a torrential downpour this morning, we are
hoping to head out to the beach. Luckily I can
still wear my swimsuit, but it won't be lasting
for much longer :)

Baby Abigail

Here are some pictures of our precious little one! Some are blury because she was very active this day. When the nurse would try for one angle, she would move the other direction. It was really fun though because she smiled & waved at us during this ultra sound :) I debated about putting the last picture up...but we just couldn't help noticing the resemblance.

Craig & I are doing well. We helped started bibles studies for the college & career group this week. I am leading the ladies & he the guys. We'll all be going to a baseball game at the end of the month (Craig chose the just happens to be when the Reds are playing)!

After much deliberation, I think my registry is about done. Babies R Us, in case you are wondering. The place makes you feel like you can't survive without most of their stuff, not to mention I knew little to nothing about car seats, strollers, cribs, etc before I started the registry - so it was a little overwhelming. But there's just something about using that scanner that is always fun!

For our anniversary, we went to Ft. Lauderdale Beach and caught the sunrise. The video doesn't even begin to capture it, but we thought you might enjoy it! This was on June 25, 2007.
