Tis The Season!

I sat down a couple of times last week to write, but my mind was blank. Nothing was going on. We're still on our break. No shots, no crazy hormones, no exciting stir-up stories...life is boring. Then I realized, NO shots, NO crazy hormones, NO exciting stir-up stories...life is GREAT!! As much as I'm ready to get back in the game, it has been so nice to be able to not think about shots, doctor appointments, and which pills I'm supposed to be taking at what time. And life is far from boring...

Thanksgiving has come and gone. By the looks of many retailers since, I don't know, the day after Halloween, Thanksgiving didn't even exist! We took a (very) quick trip up to Nashville, TN to see Jordan's grandparents and aunts and uncles. It was pretty fun, but one of his cousins had just had a m/c, and their grandmother would NOT stop talking about it. Nobody there (except J's parents) know about mine, so it was just awkward! I know his cousin was ready to stop talking about it!! Other than that though, it was nice to see family that we haven't seen in years!

It's Christmas time! We have our tree up and our decorations out, and the house smells of cinnamon and fresh cut Christmas trees. It is fabulous. Though I detest cold weather, this is my favorite holiday. I love buying gifts, singing Christmas carols and hymns, and celebrating the birth of our Saviour. He is the reason for the season-don't let the lights and blow-up lawn ornaments fool you!

Hollee and John were married this past weekend! We had such a great time, and the wedding was beautiful. I think the day was perfect. I haven't had a chance to talk with the bride yet, but I'm sure she had a wonderful time. Congrats guys! Welcome to the world of marriage :)

In not so great news...Jordan's dad has been diagnosed with prostate cancer. He is in the very early stages, and everyone is very hopeful. I don't know enough about the cancer, but we have had several people reassure us that this particular illness is one of the "easiest" to fight. Of course, it is cancer, so I use the term easy loosely. Please keep J's dad in your prayers.

And last but certainly not least, we are in the final countdown to FET #3. The break is almost over. AF is here, so we'll be starting our next cycle in about 28 days. I know you wanted to know that. :)

I agree...Jesus is the real reason for the season! Thanks for the reminder!

I ran across your blog and I would encourage you to check out this blog and add your name to the list. It's the power of prayer!!! After 17 months of trying after a miscarriage, we have been blessed and it only took total surrender on our part! God is faithful!
