Home Sweet Home

Hooray! Our house has been built, we have closed, and we have moved in!

We are very excited to be out of the apartment and in a much roomier space! It was difficult going from a house in Little Rock back to an apartment, however, it did make the move into this house that much sweeter.

I would like to thank our family, Andrew Stewart, and the Western Hills Church of Christ for helping us move in and unpack. You all were life savers!

Also a special thanks goes out to our realtor, Molly Edmondson. I highly recommend her services for anyone selling or buying a house in the Nashville area. She is great at what she does!

Impromptu Hall Family Reunion

We had a unexpected Hall family reunion in Nashville.

Clayton & Cara Sedberry, Heath Parnell & Caitlin, Paul & Megan Mitchell, and John & Freda Hall all showed up in Nashville at the same time.

We had such a crew together that we had our own services on Sunday morning at Carole's house.

While we were together some practiced the piano and/or sang songs as seen in this picture and others in the following photo album.

Abby @ 7 Months

Abby is now 7 months old.

She is to the point where she is reaching for whoever she wants. Its a good feeling when you are the target of her reach.

Her crawling capabilities are much better than the last crawling video I posted. She can now move across the room at a pretty good rate of speed.

She is not able to creep yet, but she does get on all fours and rocks back and forth.

Also, she is almost able to get in the sitting position from her belly. I imagine she will be able to master this skill in the near future.

Abby is recovering from a slight sickness. Its not as bad as the full out Flu a while back, but its still uncomfortable and disrupting.

We also think that she is starting to go through some seperation anxiety that is common in babies this age.

Wye Mountain

This weekend we went on our yearly trek to Wye Mountain in Arkansas. This is our 3rd year to visit the dandelion field and it was Abby's first time to visit ( not including when Andrea was pregnant ). We took pictures with our good friends the Siegels and Chapins.

The Siegels graciously let us stay with them while we were in Little Rock and baby-sat Abby while we went to watch Tuesdays with Morrie at the Arkansas Repertory Theatre.

On Sunday, we worshiped at CrossWalk Family of God. It was so good to be among our friends and family at CrossWalk again. We have a very special bond with the people in that church and they hold a dear place in our hearts.

Unfortunately we were unable to visit my parents. They were out of town visiting my sister and her family in California. We missed seeing them, but we look forward to seeing them in the near future.
