First holidays together....

Tigger, S, and I had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  We were with my parents and my relatives.  S's relatives have all moved out of state and this was his first year without any family for both Thanksgiving and now Christmas coming up so it's a little melancholy for him, however, we've been making new memories and that has been wonderful.

After Thanksgiving, I found out I was pregnant and it was a shock....newlywed still on birth control so have absolutely no idea how that happened.   We were very excited and happy after the shock wore off...however, it was not meant to be as the end of the week brought on a miscarriage.  We were devastated and it was a rocky start to the December holidays.

This weekend brought some happiness though as we decided to get a real Christmas tree this year (I have done artificial trees for about 8 years now) and of course Tigger has enjoyed the whole process today.  Sadness and joy.  I'm thankful I have my family and S for the good and the bad.  It truly makes life bearable and still with hope.

We found Santa on a rainy December day

Which Tree????? Tigger on top of the world

May the Christmas and Holiday season bring you closer to your loved ones whether the times are good or bad, happy or sad, or a mixture of emotions!

That is very sad! Don't fret, it'll happen again. I too had a miscarriage and then went on to have my wonderful son. I hope you get pregnant again very soon, if that is your goal and wish.

Delighted to meet you today. I hope you don't mind if I splash around a bit to get to know you. We've just begun our foster journey and this looks like a refreshing place to dip into some serious goodness.

I'm also on the hunt for ways to promote bonding and attachment with our new little princess (and all the precious ones that come through our home). I would be crazy blessed to have you share your wisdom with me and others.
