Almost there!

We are pretty much done packing (thanks to Nic). We get the moving truck today and take off tomorrow.

Stay tuned for "31 Days of Making Carson City a Home"

A special thank you to our family and friends for your help packing, bringing us meals, and all of your love and support. We couldn't have done this without you!

Baby Update

We went in for our 2nd ultrasound today and there was only 1 heartbeat. The other baby never really developed. We are doing good, just happy that we have 1 healthy baby on the way.

Our lives took a quick and crazy turn last Friday.

Nic got the job in Carson City, Nevada. He will be a Staff Attorney for the Nevada Supreme Court in the Criminal Division. It is a perfect fit for him and we feel so blessed that he has been offered this job. It is an answer to years of prayers and fasting. So, here starts our adventure of finding a place to live and moving all in 2 weeks!

A few weeks ago we found out we were pregnant, YEAH! I went in for my first doctor's appointment & ultrasound on Friday (same day & time we got offered the job). During the ultrasound I found out that I am pregnant with TWINS! Yes, 2 babies.

Don't ask me how I feel right now because I don't have an answer for you. Overwhelmed is the only thing I can say. I don't think you can get more life changing news in 1 day. You got a new job, you are moving out of state, and your are having twins, AHH!

We do feel so, so, blessed by our Heavenly Father. He truly watches over us and hears and answers our prayers.

New adventure here we come!
