Things we miss about Huntsville...

Well, we are still adjusting to life in Florence. Rodney and I met in Florence and of course my parents, aunt and cousin were here to make our move a little easier. It's hard to believe we've been here since October 2007. We are house hunting each day and hope to find one really soon. A 2-bedroom apartment is about to drive us all crazy. The kids and I get try to find plenty of things to do outside of the apartment - like swimming at the Y, reading and playing on the Thomas table at Books-a-Million (while I catch up on all the celebrity gossip -Ha), going to all the parks in our area, feeding fish and ducks, oh and visiting the Pet Store. We cannot wait for the new water pad to open up by the Marriott - on pretty days, you'll probably catch us there (till we have a backyard of our own).


We love to eat mom's hamburgers and homemade fries (did that last night) - Thanks mom! Eating at mom and dad's is a probably a favorite of ours. We miss so many of the good food places in Huntsville. Little Rosie's (Joshua and Marah's favorite) before Wednesday night church-yummo! McAlister's - a huge favorite of mine and Jason's Deli (where you can get free icecream with your meal). Florence could use one of those places. Then there is Red Robin & Cheeburger Cheeburger. We love those too. It wasn't too long ago Joshua asked if Florence had a Cheeseburger Cheeseburger and I said, "no." He said," what about a French Fry, French Fry!"


Then of course, what we miss most about Huntsville - the people!




I am still learning about all this posting stuff and have not mastered inserting pictures with the names under them, so please forgive me for all the pictures in different places. I will try to let you know who is in each picture from the top-to-bottom, left-to-right.

At the very top was our Huddle Group (9th graders) from Mayfair.

Then we have our class from Mayfair - the Homebuilder guys! My sister Brooke and her family is next - Thomas, Camden, Carter & Caley. Beside their family picture is Joshua with his "best buds" - Camden & Carter.

My brother Ben and his beautiful and famous family - Anna and the "Morrow Triplets" - Abbie, Bailey & Noah.

On the right, is the all the Homebuilder Girls

Marah's best friend -Caley (they are only 3 months apart)

Rodney's brother Ryan and his wife Kellie, and their dog 'Jake'

Well, I went to preview all this and the pictures moved around AGAIN. Sorry for all of that...maybe you can figure out who everyone is - I'm tired! Anyways....All of this to say...

Florence is a good place for us right now - it's where the Lord wants us to be! We just want all these special people to know that we miss them and love them very much.

cute pics! and it is always hard to leave the places and people you love. to do your pictures...i typically just insert all the ones i want. then i click on the "edit html" tab and insert the text above the picture. when you normally type, you are in "compose" mode. you can easily switch back and forth between the two.

and i'm jealous. i wish my 2 were good eaters. they are the reason we can't fully enjoy going out to eat any more!! i mean, who chooses spaghettios or cereal over cheeseburgers?

This blog makes me want to cry!!!!! I can't tell you enough how much we miss ya'll! It seems like everytime I'm at church someone different is asking about ya'll, along with the usuals that ask for updates periodically. Everyone misses ya'll here! Love the pictures too!

Brooke said...

That was me that left the previous message. Didn't realize THomas was logged in.

Stacy said...

We miss you too! This was a really nice post...Made me tear up some too b/c I remember how hard it was for us to leave Searcy and move to Hsv. It gets easier and easier to be here, but I still miss the old too! :)

THE MORROW FAMILY said...

Awwww...we miss ya'll so much, too! I know we didn't get to see ya'll everyday or anything since we didn't live real close together, but we just miss ya'll at church and not being in town. I know that a lot of people do. People are always asking how you're doing. Those pictures were cute and I was impressed that you got them all in a row like that. It's tricky for me, too. :) We love ya'll very much and hope you'll be back here one day if it's in God's plan. Maybe you and the kids can come here a lot this summer. We would love it! By the way, Little Rosie's is my FAVORITE, too, and I would go through withdrawls without it if I moved away. I'm with you, Joshua. :)

Scarlett said...

Hey Paige! I'm so glad y'all have moved here. I've only lived in Florence, so I can't relate to starting over, but I think you'll love it here. I long to find things to do during the day too. You know, Spring Park has some cool things to do supposedly...I haven't got Bonnie over there yet. I'd love to go sometime soon! I'll call you! :)

I know what you mean. As strange as it sounds, there are many things we still miss about Montgomery. Especially our good friends and favorite restaurants... Even though I love Nashville and love being back "home" and close to my family, part of me has not quite adjusted yet.
