A purpose in heaven

Just want to say 'thank you' for all the kind thoughts, prayers and phone calls that were sent our way after miscarrying baby#3 last week. Even though we had only 4 weeks to revel in our new growing bundle of joy, it was still difficult to say goodbye to someone that was very much a part of us. Comfort comes from believing that our little one has a unique purpose in heaven and that one day we'll all be united again.

Our Little Soldiers...

Gotta love Grandparents for assisting in the costumes...this was our first year adopting the tradition that we'll spend money every other year on a "new" costume AND this was our year to be creative or wear last year's duds. Our boys chose to wear what they had and had they did...lots of army gear and it's hard to believe that there were zero fights over who would wear what...yay!
We had a great night visiting neighbors and then heading off to my cousin's house for a bit of trick or treating in Leland Grove...that was a new experience for me. WOW! There were a few houses with tables lined up with a spread of full size candy bars laid out for the taking. Definitely made me appreciate the less is more philosophy...for many reasons. It was a great night! Only caught Ethan in bed with candy under his pillow the following night :) You can always count on the younger brother to keep you posted on what the older one is up to :) How much longer will that last? and adore my little soldiers...
