We Never Do Anything Slow...

Wednesday, May 6, 2015

When we got married back in 2009, it was a bit crazy. We both graduated from college, a week later we got married, went on our honeymoon (10 days at Walt Disney World), then one day after being back, moved to Tennessee and Justin started his first job.

Two years later we had Jonah. Bought our first house. Went on an Alaskan cruise with a 6 month old Jonah. Then found out we were pregnant with Levi! (Yes, they are 15 months apart.)

Well, it's been about two years since the last round of craziness hit our family. So obviously we just moved to Louisiana... Knowing our story and our family do you think that is enough crazy? Nope!

We are happy to announce that I am pregnant! Our next Little Biddle will be born the beginning of December.



Living in Louisiana

Sunday, May 3, 2015

We have been in Louisiana for just barely over a month now, and I still am working on getting unpacked...pretty sure it is going to take forever.

We've already had many adventures here. We've discovered the good parks, the splash pads, the zoo in New Orleans (actually bought a membership there...), we even visited an alligator farm!
Scoopin' sand at our favorite park.
Swinging like a big boy.
Levi's favorite at the zoo.
Jonah's favorite.
Having fun at the aquarium.
Jonah loved the sharks.
Splash pad is bascially the best thing ever. ;)

Louisiana is crazy different from Tennessee, I didn't really expect that. Silly, I know. I figured the south was the south... Louisiana is in the Deep South, but it also has its own culture it seems like. I'm used to black bears, foxes, and blue birds. Here we have alligators, pelicans, and tree frogs!

Everyone here is crazy nice, and it feels kinda tropical every time we are outside, but I still miss Tennessee. I think I'd moved back in a heartbeat.


Homeless, Jobless, & Living with the Parents...

Friday, April 3, 2015

Last week we were homeless (just sold our house to the relocation company), the hubby had ended his last job and hadn't started his new one, and we were visiting our families in Michigan (so we were living with Justin's parents). So on paper life sounded horrid, when really it was lovely.

It was stressful adding a vacation right in the middle of the move, but we knew driving from Louisiana to Michigan was NOT going to be happening very often. So we had to grab that opportunity for a "short" 12 hour car trip to go visit family.

Now that I've explained all that, go grab a coffee or something and get comfy for my picture dump:

Nana Lynne introduced the boys to Bugles, and all that entails. 

We took the boys to the Butterfly House at Dow Gardens. Jo was in bug HEAVEN!

Leaving the Butterfly House, Nana Lynne bribed the boys to leave by gifting them puppet butterflies.

My lovely and talented sister-in-law did my hair for me! Haven't colored it since before I was married!

The final product: reddish brown balayage.

Having fun with Nana Wendy.

My Dad is buying a new house, and I fell down the stairs while checking it out... but my sweet family prayed for my "owie" at bedtime.

Saying "buh-bye" to Nana Wendy.

And for the grand finale, a video of SloMo Flying Biddle Boys:


All Packed Up

Saturday, March 21, 2015

Well, we are all packed up. The movers came Thursday, packed all our stuff in boxes, and the next day loaded. We were on the road to Michigan by 1:30pm on Friday. Crazy fast, crazy awkward, but I am crazy thankful. I can't imagine packing up ALL our stuff. Also, how does one accumulate SO MUCH STUFF? 
The movers loading up.
Our empty house.
The boys eating bedtime pizza in the hotel shower... 'cause isn't that how everyone eats it?
Finally to Michigan!

So now we spend a week with our families until we head back down South for our adventure. At least that's how Justin is explaining everything to Jo. I don't think the boys truly understand that we will never be going back to that house in Tennessee...

The hardest part hasn't been leaving that house, or the town we had our babies in... The hardest part is saying goodbye to our friends... We cried leaving our church the last time, and I totally sobbed leaving my good friend.

But onward we march in obedience to God on our big adventure... Our God is good.

5 kiddos, 2 adults, and a whole lotta craziness at IKEA. Great Fun.
Levi is starting to find his own "Hidden Mickey's" even if it's in his cereal.
Hubby loaded us all up in the car one night to get Starbucks because Mama was stressing about the up coming move.
Spring is in the air!
