A little something...

Today I went into Halmark and saw this ornament. I wasn't looking for any ornaments. I think we have about 400 already on our big tree alone. I just thought this was a perfect "little something" to remember the baby we lost this year. A little angel, just like our baby. I'm not trying to be too dramatic. I like to stay positive, while still allowing enough room to grieve. I try not to think about that pregnancy too much or remember how far along I would be. I feel pretty good about the whole process. I am thankful for my body and its ability to have carried my four healthy boys. I am also thankful for a God who knows me and loves me. I feel like things are going pretty well for me emotionally. Last week I felt a little off just not knowing what was happening with my body as it was still recovering from the miscarriage. I went to the doctor and had everything checked out. It's looking good and right on track even though it feels like it has taken forever.

Otherwise, not much going on around here. We went to the Children's museum and had fun taking some pictures in the kalidescope. My boys are so much fun! We spent the week getting up most of our Christmas decorations. Every morning, before I get up, Pierce plugs in all the tree and garland lights. It feels very cozy when I finally make my way downstairs. I love getting ready for Christmas and I love, even more, that my kids love it too!

"Papa and Grandma" were in town last weekend. What a blessing to have them here! The boys LOVE having them to play with all day long. I am so glad we have them as family! I know I am a little bias, but I feel like I have the best in-laws in the world!

That's about it for now! Hoping to have something fun to report soon!


  1. Love the ornament.... What a wonderful way to remember that sweet life. It's comforting when we can be in a place of "I don't understand this, but I trust you, Jesus!" I continue to pray for you. Much love.

  2. Tonee, I'm sorry to hear about the miscarriage. We know how hard that can be. Don't ignore the will only make it worse. We will pray for you as you go through this.

  3. Love you!! Great blog. I agree you are very blessed with Randy and Shelley:)
