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.

I'm so sorry about the baby. :( I can't imagine how hard that must be on you both. No one should ever have to go through that. :( I'll be sending love and prayers your way. Glad to hear your holidays are kicking off nicely, though.
