The Carter Family

As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord

Carter Family Update

Oh my. It's been 3 months since my last blog update... sorry about that.

Our family is doing fantastic; the past 3 months have been incredibly busy, but it's been awesome. God is SO good and has provided incredible opportunities for us. Due to the upcoming arrival of baby Micah (only 12-13 weeks from now!), I'm changing my business structure a bit to allow myself to work fewer hours, play more of an administrative role, & (hopefully) produce more of a passive income. God has given me a handful of fun, new bookkeeping clients over the past couple of months and two independent contractors that will become a part of my team within the next couple of weeks. I'm also working on e-publishing a guide for moms who want to produce a steady income from home without sacrificing time with their family; it's been a super fun project for me & I'm hoping to launch it as of 1/1/11.

Gabe has been crazy busy with work over the past 6 weeks; November marks the beginning of Open Enrollment in the insurance industry, so he's been traveling a lot. Now that December is here, he's able to settle back into a (somewhat) normal schedule and be at home at nights again (whoo hoo!).

Jada will be 2 years old in only 12 days; where has the time gone? She is such a huge blessing in our lives. She's a joyful bundle of energy; she loves to physically tackle everything, sing her ABCs (minus the "L,M,N, O" section... that's always pretty tough), count to 10 (except 8... we're working on that!), spin in circles, color, jump, and play with friends. She tries to do everything that Mommy and Daddy do; it's pretty sweet. Tonight, we were watching church on UStream and we let her stay up for the worship portion. We were singing, "How Great is Our God" & she echoed "OUR GOD!!!" in a happy, beaming tone. I just love her.

Micah is an active little guy, which I absolutely love. He's happy (okay, I'm assuming that one), healthy, and we are SO incredibly excited to meet him. His room is slowly but surely coming together. Once we move the hide-a-bed ("we" as in Gabe and another strong guy), we can start clearing out the rest of the room and begin painting. Oh yeah, another amazing blessing from God... I won free paint from a friend's blog last month, so Micah's paint for his room is absolutely FREE! Amazing.

Here are some fun pictures of our past few months:
