It's Official!!

Well, it is finally official. The Hicks family Circus has a new home. We couldn't be more excited and relieved that it's all finally over. Well the closing is anyway. Now Alex has the grand task of painting most of the rooms. We plan to move into it the weekend of Nov 3-4 or so. It will be so nice to have so much room. The girls love their playroom and have already started to tell us where they want their toys placed in it. I guess I have 3 little interior designers on my hands. Mom and Dad have been so overwhelmingly good to us while we have occupied almost every square inch of their home. Thanks Mom, Dad and Jonathan.
I am very happy b/c we found a house in an absolutely FANTASTIC neighborhood for our girls. It has a playground and pool and lots of kids. We will actually get to go there and trick-or-treat next week!!
Well everyone have a great rest of the week and thanks for all the prayers!!

Thoughts and Ponderings

Words of Wisdom By Maggie: "Happiness is Alive." --I really needed to hear this today.

Ponderings by Clara Paige: I was singing a church hymn the other day and the lyrics "washed in the blood of the Lamb" came up. Clara tells me, "I don't like that part." I explained to her that it was a good thing and of coarse she asks why. So I tell her that it means that we get baptized with Jesus and that is a very good thing. She then asks, "Are you?" and I say yes. Then she sincerely with her big puppy dog brown eyes asks me, "Have I been Advertised with Jesus?" It was just too cute and sweet. I explained to her that one day she would be. Ahh the minds of children never cease to amaze me and put my heart at peace.

Love to all!!

Punkin' Pickin'

We went Punkin Pickin last weekend with The Dodson's, The Halls and Nana/Pappy and Meme/Papaw. It was a big occasion. We celebrated Papaw's birthday and had lots of fun. Just thought I'd post a few pictures for everyone.

The Princesses of the House

Well this is part of our attempt at taking pictures for Mags and Gracie's Birthday party invitations. Just thought I would share a few of these pics with ya. After the photo session I was assigned the job of pretending to be the Mean Step-mother or as Gracie says "steffmotha." I didn't take it too personally though. Have a great week and hopefully I will be posting more soon. Gotta get those Auburn game pics downloaded first.

just an update

This is just an update for everyone. I hope to be publishing some pictures soon so I'll get more detailed then. We took Rachel and Emily Dodson with us to the Auburn Game last weekend and had a blast. I can't wait to share the pictures with you.
The twins birthday is coming up soon and I just can't get over the fact that they will be 3 years old next month.
Halloween is fast approaching and we are in need of a costume for Clara Paige. Can you believe it's already that time of year?
Oh and we are in the process of getting a new house. Just everyone please keep their fingers crossed and keep us in your prayers that it continues to go smoothly for us.
Love to all!
