If you are wondering where I have been this past week, I was enjoying my last few moments with my husband Nathaniel before his deployment for Afghanistan. Actually Halloween fell on the day before Nathaniel's departure. I was so fortunate to have my Mom, sister Jessica, Dad and Leah all fly out to Edmonton to give me some much appreciated moral support. We had a lot of laughs and fun. We all had planned to have a pumpkin carving contest only to discover that ALL the grocery stores in Edmonton were sold out of pumpkins!!!! AHHHH! So what did we resort to? Well, we carved watermelons, honey dew melons, and pineapples. Lets just say we got quite the cool reaction from all the little trick-or-treaters! Here is a photo of Nathaniel and me on Halloween dressed as Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf (in Grandma's clothes):
Here is our front grave-yard and one of our fruit pumpkins!
Here are just a few photos of me and Nathaniel saying "see you later" to each other. It was a hard, hard day. I'll spare everyone the really emotional photos. I'm doing my very best to keep extra busy and think positively to pass the time. We are SO proud of him.
Here he is about to head out the doors
But he came back for one last kiss :) I love you
Thank you for looking,
I hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween
And I just wanted to also take a moment to thank everyone for all the positive thoughts and prayers for his safe return! I am SO grateful for this.
