Fall in Florida

Our Thanksgiving was wonderful! How was yours?

Today we checked out a hiking trail that was referred to us by a friend. It was beautiful. (Princess looks cold in the next picture, but it was 70 degrees outside. She wasn't really) We are LOVING spending more time outdoors. Gainesville has lots of outdoor activities and we are trying to take advantage of them!

Babione 6 + Valdez 4 = Babez 10

Well, hello world!

Moving is crazy. And this is the longest I've ever gone without updating the ol' blog.

Sorry about that.

We pretty much hit the ground running and have had very little down time since. So where do I begin?

The biggest change for us is probably the fact that we have decided to cohabitate with our friends, the Valdez Family, for longer than at first expected. The house fits us all comfortably, we even hosted a guest last week, and it is financially beneficial for both families that we share the load right now.

My parents have taken to calling our home "the compound".


But through this season of putting the Lord's home before our own we are learning so much of Christ and of laying down our own personal interests and desires for the sake of Christ's interests and desires. It's not always easy or enjoyable but we are all in agreement that it is very worth it.

God is filling His creation with Christ. Nothing but what is of Christ will be left in the end so laying down our lives for Christ is really the only choice. He is all in all.

And He is our very great reward. (Gen 15:1 NIV)
