New Beginnings

Wow! What a week filled with packing, moving, and surprises! As you may know already, Will and I moved to Jackson yesterday. We are all moved in to our new, little abode, and the unpacking and organizing is underway! The Lord is GOOD! I will be sure to post pictures on a later blog once we get all settled in!

On a MUCH more EXCITING note: My sister Amy and her husband Ben(Will's cousin...Mississippi for ya!) live in Clinton, MS which is about 20 minutes from our new place. They invited both Ben's family and our family over for dinner last night to celebrate Ben graduating law school and his finishing of the BAR exam. (WAY to GO Benny Blue Boo :)

Meanwhile, while we were all inside getting ready to eat, Amy hands my mom and Ben's mom each a gift bag, and says something like, "this is for the dad's too, but we just wanted to give y'all this to thank you for being so supportive of Ben and I during these past three years." Sooo, the moms proceed to open the cute, little gift bag, and pull out a decorated piece of card-stock. On the card-stock was a Bible verse, picture of a sonogram, the due date, and "Baby Morgan" written on it! My mom and Ben's mom both screamed in excitement, and then everyone in both families began jumping with joy! (Some of us are STILL jumping!) The emotions in the room were filled with happy tears, shock, and excitement! Everyone is so very happy for Amy and Ben and cannot wait to meet this precious little baby around March 5, 2011!

I am so very excited about being an AUNT! I'm also so happy that Will and I are so close to Ben and Amy, and that we will get to help share in this special new beginning of their lives together with this little gift from God :)

Drowning in Boxes!

Jackson Bound

Hi, blogger friends! The Morgans finally decided to join the blogger world! Will and I think that blogging is not only a fun way to keep up with what is new in our family and friends lives, but it is also a way that you can keep up with our lives! This will have to be a short post for today because I need to get back to packing, but just wanted to let y'all know that we are moving to Jackson THIS Thursday. We are so sad to be leaving our small college town of Starkville, but we are thankful for the opportunities the Lord has in store for us in Jackson! Please pray for a safe and smooth move, and more posts to come soon! Have a great day :)
