Before the year ends

Wow it has been very long since I posted! I guess I don't have a good excuse other than my days just fly by. I can't say I'm too busy because really I'm not, however a lot has been going on. I'll have to use bullet style to fit everything into one post but I am sure I will love to come back and read this and see how far God has taken us. So here we go:

- Late October we found out that in June 2012 we will be welcoming our first born into our family! It's been one crazy ride full of  joy, doubt, worry, trust, disbelief, growth, and so much love. Since then we've been able to see and hear baby twice and it has been one of the most amazing experiences in life. I'm sporting a cute lil bump now and can't wait to find out if it's a boy or a girl so I can start calling baby by name! Just a couple more weeks till we find out!

So in love!

- I quit my job and started my own English/Spanish translation business. It's had a slow start but it's going. I am an interpreter but now that I've been having some time to make some crafts I'm thinking about maybe using my creativity to make some money. I think I can do both at the same time we'll see how it goes. Right now I've been focused on enjoying the Holidays, finding us a place to live, packing and looking forward to getting settled in our new place, which brings us to the next point.
The business
- In November we took a trip to Miami for my good friend's wedding, we had a very good time and it was kind of our babymoon. When we got back home a letter from the company we're leasing was waiting for us in the mail. The letter was to inform us that they would not be renewing our contract and that we had to move by the end of December. We really love the house but apparently the owner wants to sell and we just can't pay what she's asking for it. Anyway, we've had a hard time finding another place because we really got spoiled with this one but today we finally signed a contract for our new home at least for the next year. We're hoping to be able to buy next year, we'll see what happens! For now we're happy that we have a new home that is still close to Bruce's job and in the side of town that we love. God is faithful!
bye, bye house
- Both our cars broke down during the same week. We sold Bruce's truck for 200 bucks cuz there was no point on trying to fix it and he fixed mine so we're back to being a one-car family for now but hopefully soon we'll get a second car. The savings on the insurance policy and gas are sweet though!
Bye, bye truck
That's what the last months of 2011 have brought our way. We are thankful because we are ending our year in a much better note than we started it, we know that God is good no matter what and we are thankful for a year in which He turned our mourning into dancing.
You have turned for me my mourning into dancing: you have put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness.   
Psalm 30:11
Thank you Jesus!
