A Floridian Thanksgiving November 30, 2011

L2R - Savannah, April, J.b., Me and Sierra

2011 has been a year of change for the Whitt family. Our move 800 miles South of WV has been a fairly easy transition, but the holidays make me miss my family back home a bit more than usual. That’s why I was so excited when my sister told me that her and her family would be able to celebrate Thanksgiving with us in Florida. We cooked everything from a turkey breast to homemade rolls to homemade pumpkin pie to deep fried Oreos. Let me tell you…I highly dislike Oreos, except the Golden Oreos they now make, but these were scrumptious. You’ve got to try them!

Hope you enjoyed Thanksgiving with the ones you love! And remember, Thanksgiving is not just a one day event. There’s something to be thankful for everyday.

I’ve been off the blog for several months, but BIG transitions are in the forecast for Team Whitt. We’re moving… in 24 days to be exact. I just couldn’t hold the news in any longer. Billy (so proud of my husband) has accepted a position as Associate Pastor of Media and Worship at Sunlight Community Church in Port Saint Lucie, FL. You don’t know how excited I am for warm temperatures year round! Ok, so the warm temps aren’t everything, but it’s an added bonus. The community in PSL and people at SCC were super welcoming, and we instantly connected with the staff and praise team when we visited back in April.

I am really excited for where God is leading us. That being said, I’m also thankful for where God has had us for the past 4 years. We’ve made several friends that have seen us through the ups and downs. I believe that God has used these past 4 years to mold us and prepare us for this next chapter in our lives.

We currently live in WV so we will be traveling almost 800 miles South with 10,000 lbs of STUFF, a 125 lb golden retriever, a cat and 2 JEEPS. Things could get a little crazy on the way down!

Please pray for sanity in the coming weeks!

 

Punkin Chunkin Fun October 25, 2010

Billy, my sis-in-law (Tiff, left), my nephew (he's the one hiding under the blanket), my niece (Savannah, middle) and I ventured over to Williams Orchard for the day. We successfully battled our way through a corn maze.

The most impressive thing though was this contraption they call a Punkin Chunkin Machine. This thing is the coolest. It can shoot a pumpkin 1/4 of a mile... maybe more.

This is one of my favorite photos of the day! Bill and our niece on the Punkin Pickin Bus.

Our trip to Williams Orchard is my kind of love language. My heart was giddy all day! I love that my man is always up for new adventures.

 

When You Wish Upon A Star… August 11, 2009

Filed under: Entertainment,Family — Jessi @ 8:07 am

Summer is never complete without a family vacation. This year we decided to go to Disney World. I never really understood how you can call standing in lines in the hot blazing sun for an hour to ride a 2 minute ride a VACATION, but thousands of people do it everyday, but NOT the Whitt’s. We pulled a few strings with Mickey and took advantage of the Extra Magic Hours for guests who stay at one of the resorts. I highly recommend doing this. We got to the park early before the crowds arrived and didn’t have to wait in line to ride the rides. It made vacationing at a theme park less stressful and more entertaining. One of my favorite parts of the trip was seeing my niece’s face light up when she met Minnie Mouse… Oh, and when Minnie stole a kiss from my 6’2″ brother! It really was a great trip with lots of memories. Check out Billy’s video above and click here to see some photos of our Magical Memories.
