Here is a list of things from the last few weeks, b/c that is all I have time for:
1. We went to TX for Matt's bestfriend's wedding. Billy and Clare Aslaner had an amazing wedding and the Stouts were able to get a little break from school and work. Here is a link to all the pictures from the trip. I don't have time to load all of them here, b/c I need to get back to work!

2. We are officially moved in to our new apartment. We got everything moved in yesterday, thanks to Matt's parents, and a bunch of our amazing friends. Pictures to come after we get everything organized, b/c right now our house looks like a war zone!

3. We just signed up for our 4th semester of Seminary. Only 2 more after this Spring! Praise Jesus!

4. It is the end of the semester and we both have at least one assignment due per week so please keep us in your prayers.

5. Lots of people are having babies. I think the number grows each week. In the last 3 months we both know of at least 10 babies that have been born (4 babies were born just 2 weeks ago)! I think we can know of at least 2 or 3 babies due per month until May. There are babies everywhere. Soon I will post some of us with our friends Heather and Aaron Tiger's baby, Micah, and Amy and Matt Daughtry-Grubbs' baby, Ebenezer (Eben for short). We love them both so much and can't wait to see them grow!

I think that is it for now. Have an awesome weekend everyone! And Happy Halloween!

Pictures of the New Apartment

So here are some pictures of our new apartment. We will be moving in officially sometime the last week of Oct. Right now we are just moving a few things into the basement. I accidentally uploaded the pics in the opposite order than I meant too, but enjoy the pics!

Kitchen ceiling and light

sink, stove, DISHWASHER, microwave. don't you love the green and white? The kitchen also has lots and lots of cabinets.

We are moving!

Here in the Stout house I believe we might be gluttons for punishment. We have just recently went through the process of buying a new car (well new to us) and now we have decided to move. There is this train track that is in our back yard and it is just so very loud at all times of the day, plus Mags has no where to really play so we found this new apartment and will be moving in less than 2 weeks. The apartment is actually a section of a house that also has a hair salon and a flower shop in it. The house has a large bedroom that is 2 times the size of ours now, a great bathroom with a walk in closet, garden tub, and walk in shower. The living room is about the size of ours with laminate floors that look like hardwood, and a kitchen with a dishwasher and oven that isn't 150 degrees off. Also, the basement where the washer and dryer hook up is will serve as Matt's man cave . It is almost the same size as the rest of the apartment! The apartment has a nice fenced in yard for little Mags to enjoy and for us also. We are very excited about the move. We are trying to get all of our school work for the next few weeks done so that we can spend all of our energy on packing in a few weeks. If you aren't busy the 15-20 of Oct you are welcome to come by and move a few boxes to the new place. Pray for us that we don't go crazy (ok that I don't go crazy, Matt keeps it together much better than I do). We really feel like God provided this amazing place for us and are so grateful for this opportunity to move into an even nicer place than we live in now. Pictures to come soon!
