Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!

I know that it is not Halloween anymore half way around the world where my husband is, but I wish him and all of you a happy holiday nonetheless.  I hope that everyone has a great day.

Speaking of my husband, I did hear from him this morning.  He called me and he did make it in country safely, and seemed to be doing well.  He was a little bit rushed but gave me some much needed updates.  He said that he will probably be in one location for a while yet, but that he should be able to find out what unit he's going to be with tomorrow.  I will update everyone to what unit that is when I know it.

Today I haven't done anything too interesting, mom and I went to Pioneer Park in downtown Puyallup to go and see the Halloween themed farmers market.  We were there for a little while and saw the glass pumpkin patch (Tacoma's glass museum makes beautiful pumpkins), having them on display there.  After that we went to Lowe's and looked at paint samples for the new place.  I took some mental notes on what I'm going to need to buy in regards to paint supplies.  After that we went to Target, where I bought an Army nutcracker in ACUs.  I love it!  I also made sure to buy some candy to ship to Jesse (SO excited to get an address!) and some candy to make cookies with.  My next task is to find some good cookie recipes, I plan on buying Martha Stuart's Cookie Book, which I'm very excited about.  I also bought some no-pill fleece from JoAnn's to make a no-sew fleece blanket.  The theme?  ARMY!  It's going to be an Army pattern on one side and gold on the other.  Very excited for that, I think I might try and make it tomorrow (with my mom as my assistant, lol).  I will post photos of that also.

I'm updating the online photo album for October 2009, obviously it is the last day of October, and I won't be updating that album any more.  Keep an eye out for my November 2009 album and more updated photos of Jesse's deployment!  I will post his address ASAP.  I did decide that I'm probably not going to post the address for the new house until I get keys, to avoid any confusion!

Thank you all for your thoughts & prayers.  I'm sure our 5/2 boys appreciate it!

Again, the link to October's photo album:
