I have got to do better with this.

It has been a long time and alot has happened in our lives. In June James left to go to Dallas,Texas for a new job with the same company he had been working for in Springfield, Mo. In August they decided to let him go from the program. He was told he could have his job back in Missouri. Then when he was going to come back he was told he no longer had a job. So we sent him to Idaho where his parents live and where we had planned on moving to at the end of the year. He got a job in Pocatello, Idaho. Him and his parents drove out to Missouri on Labor day weekend in September and got me and Farren, a giant Penske truck all of our stuff and all of our animals and we headed back to Idaho. We lived in his parents garage until october when we found a really nice house to rent in Idaho Falls. It has 5 bedrooms and 2 baths, a basement with laundry area and has two stories. We love our new house and our new ward. Right after we moved in we found out I was expecting our second child. We are due in June. Just before Christmas, James was let go from his job in Pocatello. We were devastated since we had prayed about and been confirmed that this is where we were supposed to be. My dad and step-mom came out from Missouri for Christmas and stayed with us. It was a great holiday with both families.In January he left to go to Florida for a training bootcamp to get 7 certifications in Information Technology mainly with Microsoft. The weekend he left I was knocked down the stairs by one of our dogs and badly injured my left ankle. We are blessed that no more damage was caused and that the baby was fine and unharmed during the fall. My mom flew me out to California so I could spend time with her while he was gone. Farren and I had fun in California. We planned our return flight to come back to Salt Lake City, Utah the same day James was flying into there so his parents would just have to make one trip to pick us all up. I am currently almost 19 weeks along and everything is going well. We will find out gender on February 21st which is my dad's birthday. I will try to keep this updated so everyone can follow our lives with us.
