$5 off Hallmark Coupon

Wow! Hallmark has really been generous with the coupons this season!Ā Head over to MoneySavingMom to get the newest $5 off $5 coupon. You should be able to score a nearly free item with this coupon. I used a previous $5 coupon to get wrapping paper, and it was very high quality paper. You could also use the coupon to get some very inexpensive candy for stocking stuffers!


This will get you in the Christmas Spirit!

Be sure to check out this guys light displays here. My personal favorite is the 2007 “Amazing Grace” light show. You won’t be sorry you took the time to watch it!

Settling In

We have been so busy unpacking boxes, putting furniture back together, and putting things in their place that I haven’t had much time to post. Our internet connection is not very strong and I have not been able to get pictures to upload. I will keep trying to get them up.

The house is finally starting to come together. There for a few days it was like walking through a maze, and it was a bit overwhelming. So far we really like the house, I just hate the fact there is no dining room and the table is quite squished here in the kitchen. But over all the house is great and I am really enjoying putting up our personal things and making it homey.

Adam has been busy hooking up appliances and putting furniture together. The church told him he has no responsibilities for the first two weeks. They want us to get settled in and unpacked before he startes preaching and his other pastoral duties. They are very thoughtful and have really treated us with much love and care.

The boys are adjusting well. Isaac likes our new house and has had fun “helping” us unpack and do things around the house. Hudson is as cute as always. He really loves his cheerios now, but has decided he does not like green beans. šŸ™‚

We are enjoying the beauty here in Wisconsin, and the peopleĀ God has sent is to minister with. We are really excited about what the Lord has in store for us here.

We made it!

We have arrived in Wisconsin and so far everyone and everything seems to be in one piece! Our sweet church people were waiting for us when we arrived with dinner, groceries, fresh flowers and burning candles in our new house! What wonderful, loving people we have! And best of all they stayed and helped unload EVERYTHING from the truck and van. And what a big job that was!

I will try to post pictures soon of the past two days of moving out, and moving in. But for now we are wiped out and heading to bed. Thanks to all of you who prayed for us as we traveled!

I have joined the ranks!

Well, I am now officially a blogger. What else does aĀ  mother of two and youth pastor’s wife have to fill her time?! šŸ™‚ Perhaps blogging about those very things that fill my days will help keep those of you who will check in on my blog up to date on the goings on of the Jones family. IfĀ it also gives you some spiritualĀ encouragement or an occasional chuckle all the better.
