Long time no see!

I can't believe it's been five months since the last time I wrote. How sad! I have promised myself to pick this back up and stick with it this time. I'll quickly catch you up on the happenings in the O'Neill family since the last time I was here.

Since September, we have celebrated Sara Faith's first birthday:

We also celebrated Michael's 27th birthday on October 30 and my Mama's birthday on
October 31. A true lady never tells her age, so I'll keep that one a secret. ;) In November,
we enjoyed a nice trip to Knoxville to see Nana and Papa:

We drove down to Mississippi to see Michael, April, Bubba, Blake, and Cade for
Christmas, and then came back here to celebrate Christmas Day. Michael and I also
celebrated our third wedding anniversary on December 23!

On December 31, much to my shock, I took a pregnancy test which turned up positive.
Sadly, at 11 weeks along we lost the baby. God has a reason for everything He does,
though, and we just choose to praise Him for the things we do have. Yes, losing a baby
is a hard trial, but we have so many things to be thankful for! He will help us through.

I've got to go make supper for a hungry family now, but ya'll come on back every
now and again for updates from our life!
