Life Happens and then Thanksgiving Happens

Well for the past week things have been on a crazy ride. First, Sam had her third miscarriage. It was hard on both her and Dale. We sat and cried for a while after it happened. We have a plan now to go see a doctor who helps women who have a hard time getting pregnant or keeping their babies, to get pregnant and stay pregnant. We have high hopes for this Doctor. We will keep everyone posted. We are hoping for the best. Thank you to all who have been praying for our little family. We feel those prayers everyday!

Thanksgiving was bittersweet this year. We spent the holiday with Dale's family and had a great dinner with great people. We had to leave when Sam became too emotional to be with everyone. But we did have some fun.

On Black Friday, we got up at 4:30 so we could get some Christmas gifts for each other and for family. Sam went to Wal-Mart, K-Mart, and Big Lots and found nothing. Dale went to Target and the one thing he wanted to get for Sam was a keyboard. There were these three music teachers that got there before he did and took every keyboard. Dale asked if he could have just one but they told him that they needed all of them. Dale was not a happy camper when he met up with Sam later. They both then went to Wal-Mart again and found gifts for almost everyone in the family. Then they went to Sears and found Beatles Rockband and that's all Dale wanted for Christmas. So we bought it. But after bringing it home and getting it all set up and we started to play, every piece of equipment didn't work right. So after a very frustrating weekend we decided to pack it all up and take it back to the store.

After we got home that day, Dale went onto craigslist and found a great keyboard for $10. So we went and picked it up. We were very excited about our finds but we could've gotten up much later and had the same results. Dale then worked on a paper for the rest of the day and Sam took a much needed nap.

We had a great weekend and we hope that everyone else did too.

We are so excited about Christmas this year... well Sam is! Sam set up all of their Christmas stuff up on Saturday and found out that they do not have much. It looked a lot better in their little apartment. This year is also special because we will be spending the holiday with Sam's family in Show Low. It is Stetsen's, Sam's brother, last Christmas with the family before his mission. He has also been away from the family for the last six months at Boot Camp and will be home for Christmas. We are all very excited.

We are also preparing as much as possible for the on coming baby. Even though we are still a ways off from the baby we are very excited. Sam has been feeling sicker then she did with the first two pregnancies and hopes that is a very good sign.

Dale is in the process of applying for Law School all over the country and we are getting very excited to start getting the acceptance letters and scholarship offers. We can not wait for the final decision so we can finally find out where we will be living starting next fall.

So we will have Thanksgiving, Dale's Graduation, Christmas, Next Semester, Birth of Baby, and then Moving and Starting Law School. Very busy next nine months.

We will keep everyone posted!
