Well, hellllllooooo, April.

So, don't ever pray to be busy.  Unless, of course, you're prepared to be really busy.  Like REALLY busy.  Like only the kind of busy that can be brought on by praying to be busy.  

Because God,  yeah,  He really does listen to and answer prayers!

This girl has been bizzzzzzzzzeeeeeee.

After praying and specifically asking God to fill my time and keep me busy back in Janurary,  He responded by making my February and March practically disappear into appointments, activities, conferences, work, home, and family goings-on.   

And, for that, I say thanks.  Though during those months I was absolutely saying, Why did I ever ASK to be this busy?!  I'm so busy I can't see straight!  I get it, God!  I'm busy!

So, what have we been up to in the past two months?  

Well, we bought a house!  We left our darling little Cape Cod and moved to a delightful neighborhood where the kiddos are plentiful, biking in the cul-de-sac is a nightly ritual, and WE HAVE MORE THAN ONE BATHROOM!  And, stop the world, there is a laundry room on the second floor.  I've never been so excited to do laundry in my life!  We've been here for two weeks and just love it :)


Hmmm, what else?  Well, my kiddo is growing like a dang weed.  Seriously, I bet he'll have grown 4 inches by the time we make it to his yearly checkup in June.  Y'all, he's going to be a KINDERGARTNER.  Kindergarten!  Ah!  


Still no baby at the Mullins' household.  We continue to pray and have faith in His plan and are still anxiously awaiting the day that we grow into a family of four.  If you know anyone who is considering adoption, please don't hesitate to put them in touch with me!  My email is babblingabby@gmail.com.  I hadn't really considered doing it before, but I've been thinking about putting our crib together in the would-be nursery.  It's an empty room right now and it looks so lonely.  Also, if you would pray for us, I would really appreciate it :)


Also, B graduated from Nash Academy in Lexington.  He's an official dog groomer.  So proud!


Hope y'all are well!  Off to catch up on my blog reader to what's going on with you!

Cracking up at the laundry room comment! We've been looking at the new Model homes in our subdivision and hoping to upgrade into one. They ALL have upstairs laundry rooms that I swoon over. My hubs doesn't understand my joy over the idea. Currently we have a stacked washer/dryer in an over sized closet that is right next to our family/tv room. Stupidest.placement.ever. Long story short, I'm excited for you!!!

Hi! Not sure if my last comment saved so I will try again! Is that a Fischer home? It looks like a model we check out (I'm in Cincy too!). If it is I'd love to know your opinion on the house and Fischer!! Thanks :) congrats!

Beautiful home! Prayers for your next child that God is planning for you...as I write! And can B groom my schnauzer? He was banned from PetsMart--he got a bad report card when he was groomed there! :(

Congratulations on the new house! Exciting! Continued prayers for the adoption. It's a crazy process. I know the brief time we were in it was, even though it didn't end like we were planning HE had a master plan for us!

I feel like I've been keeping up with your blog for forever but have never commented. Just wanted you to know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. It's so, so hard to wait for God's plan, but I think I'm starting to learn that it's always worth the wait when it comes to His perfect will. :)

Hugs!
Suzanne
