Here it goes y’all….

This is the year of the blog for the Carps. We have so much going on that we can’t help but share with the intraneters 😉

We spent Christmas at Disney with the Carpenter/Charpentier clan. Despite half of us getting sick, we had a blast. I finally got my character pictures (third time’s a charm)

We ate breakfast at Chef Mickey’s (my long awaited dream)

I “dressed up” in Disneybound each day

We finally went on the family vacation that we’ve been discussing since 2006 🙂

PawPaw Jimmy went on his first roller coaster, Mr. Darren got a stomach virus on Christmas Day, and the shortest lines that Sam and I waited in were to take pics with Mickey. It was cray-cray and a trip we’ll never forget!

Our major New Year news is that we are moving to St. Thomas, USVI on June 3. This is the real reason we’ve decided to blog and share our journey with our friends, fam, and general Internet stalkers. Here’s what’s up: we’ve got ye old trailer up for sale, we’re selling most of our worldly possessions on Facebook, we’ve notified our employers who have all been extremely supportive, and we’ve got our temporary home booked. This is where we’ll be staying for 1-2 weeks.

The woman renting to us, Chris, has been incredibly helpful and answers all the questions that we can’t Google (which is quite a few).

We’ll keep posting as we make more progress. Today’s countdown is 145 days.

Bigger Story

Our lives are stories that interconnect and weave together into a greater, much bigger story of love, grace, and redemption.
