Difficult layout

OK... to say the least, this was the most difficult layout I have ever scrapped. It also was very healing. I recently suffered a miscarriage at 5 weeks. I am blessed with two beautiful boys and this would have been our third. I had no problems getting pregnant with all three and had very healthy pregnancies with the boys. Guess I always thought something like this could never happen to me. Now I know it happens to anyone.
Thank you to everyone who has given my husband and I so much support (Kissy... I don't know what I'd do without you!!)... the cards, flowers, and prayers mean the world to us. With God's help, everyday gets a little easier... even though we know we will never forget you little one.

Halloweens past...

Are you a big Halloween fan? My husband and I have always loved Halloween. We used to go all out on creating outlandish costumes! Our all-time favorite costume was what we called "double date." (Mind you this costume was B.C.... before children!). I found a suit at good will and our secretary at school donated an old bridesmaid dress she had and we split each down the middle. My Mom helped sew the two together. We bought a blonde wig and top hat which we cut apart and glued together... bought shoes both of us could fit into (I have big feet which helped!) and went all out. I used two different shades of foundation to create a more distinct line down the middle of our faces. My hubby even let me paint his toes on one foot, he shaved half of his chest hairs and let me put mascara on him!! It was a riot! We entered a few big Halloween contests and won numerous prizes. The best one was against about 200 people... we won fourth place and a year's worth of movie tickets, popcorn, pop, and dinner gift certificates. The third place was a trip! Just missed that!!
