Dear Santa ** A Note from a Military Wife**

Dear Santa,

I know I'm cutting it a little close this year with my letter but I hope you can find the time to read this before your big night.

I'm not asking for much this year, no fancy purse, no expensive electronics, no winning lottery ticket. I only for one little thing, and to be honest I don't know how much pull you have but its worth a shot.

 All I want for Christmas is that you guide those involved with our next set of military orders. I don't really care where we go, as long as we can all go together together. We've made it through a lot this separation and found a strength that we didn't know we possessed but if I'm being honest I'm getting close to my limit. I want to feel like my life is moving forward and with the other half of my heart gone I can't do that. I don't mind if we go to Bahrain, or Japan, or San Diego. Where ever we go will be ok with me as long as we can all be together.

And while I'm asking for your help this year Santa please send a little something extra to all the other military families who can't be together for Christmas this year.  I can say I really do know how they feel, and its a feeling that I wouldn't wish on anyone. So trust me they need a little pick me up this year too.

Thanks, and Merry Christmas!

A military wife.


PS If you can't get me orders, I guess that winning lottery ticket will have to do......

Halloween

Hey you guys, I know I'm getting really bad at updating my blog. Its a work in progress I promise. We're about 2 weeks out from halloween and I don't know about you but we had a great time!

 Ethan told me since day one when we first started talking about this years costume that he wanted to be "O the Owl" from Daniel Tigers Neighborhood. Now if you've ever seen this show you realize that means he wants to be a blue owl. Well surprise, surprise they don't have blue owl costumes. But after his insistance, and turning down my willingness to buy him any other costume he wanted I realized the only way to have a happy child on halloween was going to be to make it myself.  So I did.

I originally thought I was going to have to make him a mask but I ran across this little gym and knew this was it.

Next step was finding a hoodie and cutting out a lot of felt. Now when I say a lot I mean A LOT.
1000 felt triangles to be exact. 


If was extremely tedious but I love how the final costume came out.

Meeting Tinkerbell ( a friend of mine)


We went to out with a friend of ours and her son, Aiden the Scarcrow



 At this point he had gotten sick of his hat and stole my owl mask ( thats right I still made a mask, go figure)


 What a fun night. We lucked out and he didn't bust into anyone's house ( except tinkerbell, but I guess that doesn't count since we've been there before. ) and we definitely got more then our fair share of candy. Up next? Christmas!!

Why Being Aboy Mom is Amazing

  1. They are so easy to get ready. Tshirt-Check, jeans- Check, converse sneakers-Check. Baseball cap- check. And we’re done. No leggings, no hair bows, no frilly, itchy dresses. Its so easy and he always looks so cute. And most of the time ( as long as he is wearing his red converses lately) he doesn’t care what he is wearing which means I don’t have to fight him to look nice. Ever.
