Texas, Here we come!

Most of you already know, but for those who don't, we are moving back to Texas! Matt received a job offer with a fantastic advertising agency in Dallas. He has wanted to work for this company for a long time and they called him with a great opportunity.
We met with our realtor today, Saturday, and will have the "For Sale" sign in our yard tomorrow. We are praying really hard that our house sells fast because Matt starts on January 8th and we are leaving with it sold or not! It will make things A LOT easier if our house is sold by that date. So many things have really fallen into place and I really hope this is another thing that will.
We love being here in North Carolina and have really come to love our friends and church home here. It will be a bitter sweet good-bye for sure. But, on the bright side, we are going to be near our "old" friends and families! The first thing my mom said when I told her was "Hayden's gonna know his Mimi and PawPaw now!" I can't wait for Hayden to get to know his grandparents, aunts and uncles, and cousins.
I got some iron on letters at Halloween for our costume and didn't use them, so Thursday morning I made Hayden a "Texas t-shirt." Even though he was born in North Carolina, Matt's sister made a great point...he was born over Texas soil. Let me explain that....When I was pregnant with Hayden, we got a package at our door one day. It was a Mason Jar filled with dirt. There was a note attached that read "Certified Texas Soil. Place under your hospital bed and Hayden will be born over Texas soil!" There was no name attached and we were a bit confused, but we found out later that Matt's sister, Melissa, sent it. I thought that was really cute! Here's a few pictures of Hayden with his shirt on. Wish us luck and pray that our transition and move goes smoothly.

Congratulations! I know that you are so excited. Moving is always bittersweet-- anticipating the new while leaving great memories and friends. I hope that your house sells quickly and the move is as smooth as possible. We've moved last year over the holidays so I can totally empathize.
