Ebby Halliday....bring on the homebuyers!

We officially have our home on the market. Hence, the Ebby Halliday realtor sign in our front yard. We've decided after 4 1/2 years of residency here in our casa that we don't like 2-story's, we don't need 2600 sq. ft. and we could be better stewards of our money by downsizing. So, we've decided to sell our house. Seem's like there's a lot of people doing that these days.

We are confident that we will sell it, we're just praying we get close to our asking price. It's all in God's hands and we're trusting in HIS provision and timing for our family. It seems that houses in Lost Creek Ranch are selling on average in 80-120 days. Our hope is that we'll fall somewhere within that statistic...Less time would be better, but hey we'll be happy with whatever. We've decided that our next home will be in McKinney, TX. That is where our church is and the majority of our friends are. We've been looking for awhile and know basically the general area we want to move to. There is a home that is a great prospect and deal...we're just working out the logistics. We'll be a little further north from family, but most likely not much farther than 5 miles or so from our current home.

Jason and I are both excited about what God holds for our future as we move ONCE again, making this move # 7 for us in 8 years of marriage and move #2 for Lukey in 15 months of life. He moved out of my womb in July 04' so that counts for something right.... Brett....I know that statistically that's approximately a little less than 1 new residence every year we've been together. And.... we've been in THIS house 4 1/2 years now. So you do the math....either way it totals LOTS of packed and unpacked boxes. We're leaving it all in God's hands, it's way out of OUR control. Please pray our house sells quickly and that just the right buyer comes along. Too tired to blog anymore tonight. Headed to bed now! Nightie night everyone.

Just got caught up on your blog - Wow! Congrats on the move. Downsizing is a bold move - but always a good one! Congrats.

We'll kepp your transition in our prayers.
