Farewell to Friends

Here are a few of our goodbyes with some friends over the last week or so. I'm sure our farewell with our families will be more teary-eyed. In fact it may be down right ugly, so you may not see any pictures of it!
This is my friend Annie and I. Even though we don't live in the same town now, we still get to see each other when she comes to Woodward to see her family. I am really going to miss her. We have been the best of friends since 5th grade. We've been pregnant together twice. Our first daughters are 3 weeks apart and this time with our third we are just a week apart.

Here is Hollace with Lily. They always have a good time together.
Here are the boys, Rhett and Cooper. I was about a year behind with this pregnancy.

This is Hollace and her "boyfriend" Nash Hunter. He came by to bring her a going away gift.
Here are Hollace and her best friend Brynn. She is very sad about moving away from Brynn. They have been friends since they were babies. Her mom, Margo, and I are great friends and work together. She is my former "running partner" and my "look-alike". We are REALLY going to miss the Carpenters!!
This is the kids with Wanda and Donnie Thomas. They are long-time family friends of the Hubbards. They live next door to Brent's parents and lived there when Brent was growing up. The kids really like to see them and we got to have dinner and spend some time with them before we leave.

Last, but not least, here is a silly picture from our Sunday School class's scavenger hunt a couple of weeks ago. This is just a few of us, but we all had a great time and they had a little farewell for us at the end of the evening. They are all great people that we have truly enjoyed getting to know and we are going to miss them. Thanks guys for your support and friendship!

**Moving Update:**
We finally have a "plan" for the actual move. The movers arrived this am and gave us an estimate for how long it would take to pack and load and when they would be leaving. The plan, as of now, is to leave sometime Wed. afternoon and stop somewhere along the way that night and get up and drive the rest of the way on Thursday. I think Brent's brother is going to drive a vehicle and stay there with us a few days to help us get somewhat settled. This will really help since I won't be a whole lot of help 35+ weeks pregnant and trying to keep the kids entertained and out of the way.

Also, we have a contract on our house here in Woodward. We had an offer on it after about 2 weeks on the market. That was a huge blessing! Just pray that everything goes smoothly for the planned closing by the first of Feb.

This may be the last you hear from me until we are in TN. I'm sure by tomorrow this computer will be in a box on a truck. Everyone have a great New Year's and I'll catch up when I can!

Hilary this post just makes me want to cry like a baby! I know your moving but it still hasn't hit me. I can't believe you really are leaving Woodward, I will miss seeing you more than I can say. We'll have to stay in touch through phone and emails. I love you and please let me know when you get to TN.

You both will be missed here in Woodward. Just remember you must stop by and see all your friends when you come back home to visit. Nash is very sad his girlfriend Hollace is leaving. When you get settled in e-mail me the picture of them. Take care and be safe Tennessee is a big place.

Such a sad post there, Hilary. I hope you all have a very safe trip and that the move goes smoothly. We've moved cross country numerous times and it is always easier than you think it will be. I look forward to more posting, from TN.
