so anyhow, here is the game plan. our friends tj and samantha (whose baby is below... i had to tie these pictures in somehow!) proposed to us the idea of renting tj's dad's house together. yes, as in, two families living in the same house. crazy? probably. but sometimes you have to get crazy to save some money! so after looking at the house, which has three bedrooms, two living areas, a decent sized kitchen, and a big backyard with a nice, shady tree, we decided it was a go. we are going to do some work on the house, and in exchange, we don't have to pay a deposit and are getting two months free rent. sam and tj are moving in at a later time. i guess we'll all be one big happy family. the funny thing is, about a year ago john and i discussed asking them if they would want to live with us. we ended up never bringing up the idea to them, but that's just how things have been working lately -- god is showing us little coincidences here and there that ironically fit together in a strange, sweet way.
and more to come on that! and now, without further ado, meet river's new roommate (the little piglet in my halloween post). i just loved these pictures so much i had no clue which one to post! so i'm posting them all. she is such a cutie. just look at that sweet, perfect face and those big, beautiful eyes! *ohmygoodnessineedagirl*
