whilwind updates...

wow it has been quite some time since we have updated our blog... so much has changed so let me pull together a brief recap since august...

in August we had lots of excitement to add to our lives... I found out I was pregnant with our second child and a week later we went to Nashville to visit family. Phil had lined up 2 job interviews for while we were visiting and got called about a random 3rd one while we were in town... while on our way driving home from nashville on August 23rd we got a call and had 2 job offers on the table one from Lifeway's corp office and one from Avenue Bank's corp let me brief you with WE WERE NOT expecting really anything to come from any of these interviews, but as you will soon see in this recap the Lord clearly had different plans for us :)

after lots and lots of prayer and negotiations Phil accepted a GREAT job at Avenue bank ( the random interview) and we were sent to move September 23rd... yes exactly a month after the offer came in... YIKES!!! thankfully we were able to rent our charleston home out within 8 days of listing it and my mom just so happen to be selling her house in Spring Hill TN that we were able to work out a great deal on... to say we are blessed is an understatement!!!

On September 14th Gentry turned ONE.... wow we have a toddler now, and I had already sent out invitations for her birthday party before all of the moving came into the picture... so 5 days before our set move date we hosted a birthday party for our sweet little girl at our very bare home... we feel truly blessed that many of our friends were able to come out and celebrate with us/ send Gentry off as one loved and blessed One year old!

moving went well and I couldn't have survived it without the help of my sweet mom and husband... you see while all of this chaos was going on... I was PUKING and puking LOTS! moving is never fun, but let me just say its even worse with morning sickness, a one year old, and a very short timeline... but with their help we managed to pull it all off!

we are now mostly settled in Nashville TN and loving it...(we still have a small amount of decorating/ unpacking to come) it has been such a blessing being so close to my family and many of my friends from college. Phil is loving his job and Gentry is truly thriving in her new found environment! and we are happy to announce we will be having ANOTHER GIRL... Greyleigh Tate Reynolds will be making her debut on April 12, 2012 via c-section and we cannot wait for her arrival!

so that should bring everyone up to speed on what has been happening with us, I apologize for the lack of updates in the past few months but as you can see we have had a lot going on

I promise to try and update more often when I am not chasing a toddler around ;)
