We're cruising along pretty well. Only three weeks until he comes home for his first R&R. The girls had a Halloween party at school over the weekend. Jack's class put on a haunted house and everyone had a relatively good time. My little ladies looked very precious:
Olivia had wanted to go as Alice in Wonderland, but she just wasn't loving it when she tried the costume on. She played around a bit and was very happy with her new costume: Malice in Wonderland. Grace is the ethereal Corpse Bride.
