We did Halloween early this year. The kids got to dress up yesterday for their parade and parties at school. I didn’t get very good pictures of them in the parade. Ethan was jumping up and down so the picture I got of him is extremely blurry. And by the time Tyra’s class came around there were a lot more people in front of me and I finally managed to get a picture of her as she was walking away from me. So the picture is of her back.
Chloe woke up barfy yesterday as well. She couldn’t even keep water down all morning. And she kept falling asleep in odd places all over the house. She would just seem to have disappeared and I would go to see what she was getting into and I would find her someplace random just sleeping on the floor. Once I found her asleep on the floor right in front of the garage door, then another time I found her asleep on the kitchen floor right in front of the sink.
She just really was not feeling well dang it.
After school I picked Ethan and Tyra up instead of waiting for them to walk home, then we headed to Kyle’s work for trick or treating.
Dinah was so excited, and ate a lot of candy WHILE still collecting. She also had great fun pointing out every other witch costume that she saw there.
The kids went from cubicle to cubicle collecting candy. Most of the desks that had candy available had a flier with a ghost on it posted outside their cubicle so the kids could see where there was candy. I must say trick or treating like this has really spoiled us. They get a lot of candy fast, and it’s indoors where it’s warm and dry. 🙂
Chloe stopped throwing up around lunch time so I took her in for a bit of the trick or treating. But since she hadn’t had ANYTHING to eat all day for fear that she would throw up again, she kept trying to eat the candy at every desk. Every time we put a new candy in her bucket she would reach down and try to get it out to eat, poor thing.
Since Halloween landed on a Sunday this year, our neighborhood did trick or treating today. We usually order pizza as our Halloween dinner tradition, and the only place close enough to deliver pizza to our house is REALLY expensive. So this year Kyle went out to pick up pizza from somewhere else. When he got home we ate, well Kyle and I ate, the kids were just too excited to get out of the house to bother eating anything. We helped the kids get their pumpkins ready.
Then Kyle took the kids trick or treating while I stayed home to pass out candy and clean up after dinner. They just did our street before coming back to make a potty stop, and at that point Kyle dropped Chloe off and just took the others back out. Chloe was not very happy at being left behind. She ran to the door to watch everyone else go, and then every time some one came to the door she ran ahead of me to go help pass out candy.
Thankfully Chloe was feeling much better today than she was yesterday. 🙂
