What's next in our lives?

     Anthony is now back from training and so far everything is falling into place YEAY.  Halloween is next week and we are so excited to see Aydens face as we trick or treat, he's been saying witch (hehehe),  ghost (boooo) and ahhh spider alllll month long!  Ayden is going to be a Pirate (Arrr Matey), Anthony is going to wear a Metallica shirt and I'm going to wear a gray shirt with a glitter ghost on it.  Friday we are planning on carving our pumpkins then we are going to our Battalions Halloween get together where I will be handing out candy while Anthony and Ayden get to enjoy all the activities.  Saturday is a train ride and of course Sunday is Halloween!  Tomorrow I will head to the Commissary to grab some sugar cookie mix so Anthony and I can make ghost and spider cookies with Ayden!
     This month ran by fast and before we know it Thanksgiving will be here which we all look forward to and this year Ayden is old enough to help cook!  For all you bloggers who love pictures I will make sure to take lots to share, sharing is caring!

In Memory of all Lost Angels!

During Baby Loss Awareness Week, 9-15 October, we remember all Babies born sleeping, whom we have carried but never met, those we have held but could not take home or the ones that came home but did not stay. 
In Memory of all Lost Angels!
   A couple of friends of mine have gone through miscarriages, how do you begin to apologize for something like this?  You begin to say sorry but stop because you realize you should be saying a word that means more emotion but the only thing coming to mind is I'm Sorry.  I cannot relate and there for all I understand is what I see on the outside.  Tears that seem to never end, no more happiness because it has been replaced by sadness and pain ... so much pain!  
   One friend of mine, who I care very much for, has just gone through this and in my eyes she does not deserve this (NO ONE DOES).  She is such a wonderful mother/wife/woman/friend and she deserves all the blessings in the world.  When she called and told me what was happening I could tell how hurt she was and I cried along with her.  I wish I could've been there to comfort her but she's an ocean and states away so all I could give her were reassuring words of positivity.  In the end it was unfortunately confirmed, she had lost the baby.  I've prayed many nights hard and long for God to give her strength and guidance to look to the future, to walk with her in this time of sorrow and to help her come to peace with this.  I know she will meet this precious gift one day, God has BIGGER plans for this child.  In the mean time I will always be there for her, I will be a shoulder to cry on, hug to give, a voice for advice, a joke for laughter and a NEVER ENDING FRIEND!
For all of you out there who have gone through this, I am wholeheartedly sorry.

This month is full of ghosts, goblins, witches and pumpkins!

   It's October 6th and I feel like not just the last couple of months but year has flown by WAY to fast!  We've started decorating the house for Halloween, which is so awesome because I love to see Ayden get excited about all the lights!  We've got his costume all ready for him, he's going to be a pirate, ARRR!  If I can pull it off maybe I can get Anthony to dress up too but that's a day that everyone will have to wait for! 
   This month is not just about Halloween, it's about Anthony being at training yet again & my twin brothers birthday, meaning it's my birthday too!  Anthony left last night at 2am and before I know it he will be back!  This isn't my first training exercise so I know what to expect.  It doesn't get any easier and you never get used to it, you just learn what you have to do to keep yourself busy!  All of these days, weeks and months away are helping prepare our soldiers for their year long journey to the oh so fun 'sand box'.  After this training exercise we will have our soldiers until the next which isn't until January. 
   In the meantime my twin will be celebrating his 27th birthday, October 15th.  I haven't spent a birthday with him since 2002 and I wish I could be there to say SURPRISE HAPPY BIRTHDAY, one day that will happen.  Since Anthony isn't here I don't have any plans, I'm thinking Ayden will surprise me with pizza and a night full of The Backyardigans episodes.  When Anthony comes back I'm pretty sure he will have something up his sleeve, he's 'very very sneaky' (anybody know what movie that's from, no?  Mr. Deeds).  Anthony and I have this weird tradition that we have done since 2002, when it's my birthday I get him something and (that's right) when it's his birthday he gets me something.  This year this tradition wasn't carried out so I'm thinking when he gets home we can have a redo, sounds like a good idea huu?!
   Other than that this month will probably fly by like the rest.  All of you out there who agree enjoy all the moments you have with each other because before you know it the dreadful trip to the oh so fun 'sand box' will be here.
