Today marks one year since my grandmother passed away.  While I know this would have been a year of suffering for her, I still miss her. I still wish for just one more visit, just one more phone call, just one more time to say her name.  It still hurts, but I know she is happy and glad to be out of pain. So I will just keep remembering memories until that one day that I do see her again. 

What saddens me most is that Mollye will never remember her except in story form. This hurts as Mollye was Nana's world! I will be sure to tell her all about her great grandmother! Just two nights ago Mollye looked at the picture of Nana, Myself, and Mollye and asked who Nana was.  I told her and her response was- where is she? Now that hurt.  I had to explain to my two year old that she was at the best place possible- HEAVEN!

Everytime I look at this picture I think about how I would have rushed and printed one off for Nana.  This is a picture she would have LOVED! Both of her girls!
I love you, Nana! Not a day goes by that I do not think of you and wish I could stop by for our talks and conversations!

Oh how I love Halloween! I look so forward to the month of October, and then it seems to just fly by.  Tonight I was looking back at our pictures, and while it seems to have flown by I do believe we made the most of it! It was full of crafts, parties, a trip to the zoo, and trick or treating!!! In fact, this year we were even able to trick or treat on Saturday and attend Cowan's festival on Sunday night. 

Here are some pictures of Mollye trick or treating:

First stop Nanny T and Papa's:

 This was the first house we decided to stop at.  Mollye loved the decorations!

 After the second house (pictured here), she clearly understood what to do.  She had a routine that went like this: "Happy Halloween." [they would give her candy] "Thnk you. Next House!" Yes, she ran thank you and next house together~ she knew what she wanted!

 This is only half way through the first night!
 I love that I have a picture of just Mollye and myself from every Halloween!

 One happy little girl:
 Mollye's pumpkin. Carved exactly as she asked.
 This was the big kitty at the Cowan Festival.  It was one of her favorites! Might I also add that my child got inside a coffin- I was in such shock that I forgot to take a picture!
I will post pictures from the Halloween zoo trip tomorrow!!
