- The Terrells
- We are a family of four and a half- Seth, Bethany, Blevin and Caleb and another little man on the way. Seth is on staff with Campus Outreach and I (Bethany) stay at home with the boys and sometimes sell Usborne books and am making some attempt to homeschool. Blevin is almost five and is the compassionate (most of the time) Transformer and super hero loving boy. Caleb is almost three and keeps me on my toes- there is never a dull moment with him around!!

5- 12 pack cans of Diet Coke
1- 8 pack roll of Scott paper towels
1- package of Dunkin Donuts Coffee (French Vanilla- My favorite!!)
1- jar of Peanut Butter (it was not my favorite skippy natural, but it was skippy and it was only $1 with my coupon, so we can eat it!!)
4 -tubes of Colgate toothpaste (2 for me and seth and 2 for the boys)!!!!!
1- 32 oz thing of detergent (some random brand, but it will work)
I was so excited and had to share- i bought what was on sale and then had a coupon for that stuff and used some reward bucks I had!!
Then I went to publix and spent $78 and saved $75!!!!! We have enough cereal and graham crackers to last for the next few months!!!
I am using a website called southernsavers.com and she does all the work and tells you what is on sale and where to find the coupons (you have to buy the sunday paper) I have only been doing if for about 6 weeks, but I can tell that I am saving money and it is a fun adventure- Now I don't want to buy anything without a coupon!!!!! So...check it out and start your own adventure!!!

Brushing the goats- this is one of the few pics I got of their faces-all the rest of them are of the backs of their heads!!Riding the see-saw in the playground after seeing all our favorite animals!!!
We also got to hang out with the phi mu's a lot last weekend we went to their philanthropy event and then on Sunday we went to Family Day!!! It was fun meeting all the girl's parents and the boys enjoyed all the attention- as always!!!
Playing football and cornhole!!!!
The fam- notice the black clouds in the background? Yeah that was a thunderstorm that caused a rain delay in the 3rd inning!!
Two of the sweet Phi Mu's- rachel and alexa- both are in my Bible study and going to Beach Project!!!!!
I did not take my camera in because of the rain- luckily it paid off to be in the cheap seats because we were covered because we were so high up- the boys eyes were so big from trying to take it all in and then it started to rain and hail and the wind was blowing like crazy- I figured we were okay cause surely someone was watching the radar and all the security people were in the field, so I figured if there was a tornado- they would atleast get their people to safety- After waiting it out for 45 minutes - we decide to just go when there is a little break in the rain- well the "break" was over by the time we reached the front gate and we all got soaked going to the car!! Luckily- I had clothes for the boys and me and seth were just wet- but it was so fun!!!
As if that was not enough- Seth's brother- Shane came to spend the night with us so they got to wrestle and play with Uncle Shane!!
I know I am bias- but these are two little studs!!!
Caleb and the girls looking for their eggs
enjoying some of the goodies
All the kids- 4 of the 5 were happy- that is pretty good!!!!
man I love these kids!!!

This was Bald River Falls- it was beautiful and this is where we went for a hike!!
Seth trying fly-fishing- sadly he did not catch anything!!
After two nights away we went back to Seth's parents for a golf tournament and Shane and Brittany came too- so we went from peace and quiet to 5 kids in one house! Luckily it was great weather and they played outside the whole time. We went to a little park that has a "mini" roller coaster and a train- so the kids loved that. The guy working the roller coaster let Caleb and Hadley ride even though they were not tall enough and Caleb loved it and Uncle Shane rode the train with them and then we had a little birthday party for Madison- who is turning 6- with cake and pinata!!! So..it was fun and crazy but we are always happy to be with our cousins!!

Blevin kept this outfit on for a solid 36 hours only to pull it down to go to the bathroom!! Caleb did not sleep in his but took it off for bed - put on superman pjs- and the next morning his first question was asking where his batman outfit was. You get lots of smiles when you go out in public with batman and bumblebee!!! if you can tell- batman has on two different shoes too- he insisted on wearing them!!!

Here are just a few things I love about Carrollton and I am thankful for:
*The favor He has provided for me with Phi Mu
*the boys loving our new house-yard- and friends
*my sweet friend- mary ann- that has made the move so easy
*Target- one mile from my house (just a sweet bonus)
*a house I love with a great yard and great neighbors (my sweet neighbor Mrs. charlotte takes care of me!!! she brings us food and gets our mail and just comes to hang out in the afternoon when I am out with the boys)
*over 30 students coming to Christ- AMAZING!!!! (this is all i really need to say)
*a great church that loves us (actually my sweet friends threw me a suprise birthday party today- so i am so thankful for these ladies and their walks with the Lord)
* a great staff team
*the sun setting later here (well i know the time is diferent, either way- the sun is up til past dinner!!!)
*awesome parks we can walk to and the memories that go with them!
*sidewalks everywhere to run on with my jog stroller
so...these are just a few things- but I am thankful for this change and although there are soooooo many memories I have from good ol j'ville- i have made so many more her in good ol carrollton and can't wait to see what else the Lord is going to do and where he will take us!!!!

Caleb's favorite toy was the dollar tree ball and Blevin got a Transformers tent
Then we went to Seth's grandmothers on the 24th and had another Christmas with his grandmother and then went to my parents!! Christmas day we had a huge breakfast and then waited on Elliott-Sarah and Collier and then ate a huge lunch and then opened presents again!! So...by Christmas day- the boys are completely overwhelmed by all their toys and things they have gotten. We got to hang out with Elliott and Sarah and then the day after Christmas my mom's whole family came over and we hung out and shot skeet!!
The boys are not allowed to have a kitchen- so they got a grill and here they are chillin with Daddy T
the three grandkids- Blevin- baby Collier and Caleb
So then on the 27th we loaded up and dropped the boys off with Seth's parents and headed to Nashville for my 12th Christmas Conference!! We had an awesome group from West Georgia and it is always great for me personally too in my walk with the Lord. We had around 50 go and I had prayed for one room of Phi Mu's to go and 5 went!!! I was so excited. The speakers were great- many late nights- one night of dancing and lots of talking and after we got home I realized that I am not 18 any more and it took several days to recover. So...after a great holiday- we are happy to be home and school started last week, so things are off to an exciting and busy start- will try to update more frequently! A little late- Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
