Then we had to get back home to get ready for Santa. Price and I made cookies for Santa. I'm no cookie artist, but I thought Price's was really good for a 3 year old. The only help he had was with the sprinkles and a little help with the lips....otherwise, he did it all on his own. Santa is going to be proud!

My husband! We are a TEAM! He takes care of me and makes me feel so secure!. I know with him I can get through anything. I depend on him for EVERYTHING. He is the most responsible man I know (Just like my grandfather!). He always knows what to do and I never have to worry with him by my side. He's a great dad and his only fault would be working too much, but I can't complain too much about that since I do reap the benefits..... I am a LUCKY woman to be married to him, for sure!
My two precious children! My beautiful boys! They are my life line! They make me smile on days when I'm sad. They keep me going when I feel like I can't go anymore. They make me miss the days behind us while still looking forward to the days to come. Motherhood is such an emotional and uplifting journey. I hate leaving them for fear of missing something but I am so very blessed to be able to stay at home with them and watch them grow everyday. I miss very little of their lives and I hope that I am always able to say that. As they go to school and become more independant I will miss the days at home when both are home whining and fighting. I have been praying for patience (I know they say not to do that) but I truly feel that I have gained an appreciation for the small things, even when they aren't so much fun!
My MOM! My mom is my ROCK! She takes care of me in more ways then I could ever explain. She listens to me when I need to be listened to. She supports me no matter what. I don't know what I'd do without her. REALLY! She is a great Gigi and I am glad to have such a close relationship with her.
Our ENTIRE Family! We have such a fabulous support system. They are right where they need to be when we need them. I always know we can count on them regardless of the situation. We are fortunate to live close to Josh's family who helps us at a moments notice. Who loves our our children and are a big part of their lives.
My FRIENDS! There are some old and some new.....What wonderful blessings each of you are! It's amazing how each of you add something special to my life.
I had a wonderful Thanksgiving with my Family. We didn't do much but being at home gave me time to think about all I had to be Thankful for instead of worrying about what time I needed to be where. I missed seeing everyone but I am glad I had such a great family to miss!
I'm an only child and I can admit to being a little selfish at times. There are plenty of times I think of what I WANT way more then what I HAVE. If I never got another thing in life, I'd still be blessed beyond belief.

On Monday I went to the doctor for my 16 week OB Checkup and they couldn't find a heartbeat. I had to go to Lexington Medical Center for a dnc. I am recovering but I am sad.
My plan didn't work out. The Lord has another plan in store for our family, and for that I am thankful. But it is hard to see the big picture at the moment when my heart is so heavy.
I got to see the baby by ultrasound on Monday and it looked so perfect. Perfect face, perfect arms and legs. Perfect baby. I chose not to find out the sex because that would have made it more real. It was hard enough.
Thank you for everyone who has called, your cards, your flowers, your emails, and most of all your prayers. This Thanksgiving I will spend my energy being THANKFUL for the wonderful family and friends I have.

Price's last game was this past Saturday morning. I can't believe how fast his season came to an end. He played in all 9 games and you could definitly see a great improvement by the end of the season. I am already looking forward to next season, and I think Price is as well. I am very proud of my little soccer player. A BIG THANK YOU to all of our friends and family who came out to support Price. We really appreciate it!
Below is video from his very last goal. The footage is thanks to my good friend, Micah! :) (Thanks, Micah!!)

"God, you are my provider, God you know my needs!"
This is a song learned in preschool choir and we have his preschool choir CD that we listen to often, but we hadn't heard it in a while and for him to sing this and remind me God IS in control was absolutly convicting.
God, You are MY provider! I know your in control! Thank you for your daily reminders!

He did terrific at his first practice. He learned to dribble and stop the ball pretty good. We just have to work on his pushing the other kids out of the way.....

Please let me know what your favorite is or offer up some good ideas that I can use!!
I will totally appreciate your help!!
Most of you would probably just tell me to ask Price what he wants to be........but then he'd say something that I don't want to do, like "Lightening McQueen" or "Thomas the Train" and then he'd get mad when I said no! I'm just mean like that!!

Owen got a little fever (okay, a high fever: 104.4) while we were in Edisto. We took him to the doctor there and she pretty much said to wait it out which seemed to work okay. Luckily he didn't act like he was too sick and we got to enjoy our week without anyone else getting sick. I love that Price & Owen have such a large family and so many cousins to play with. It made for a great week with our wonderful family! I'm already looking forward to next year.
Good Bye Beaches!! See you again next year!!
