Our family is suffering from a serious condition: TOO MUCH HALLOWEEN! We came, we saw, and we trick or treated!
Rachel got sick from all the candy at one of our 3 scheduled parties on Friday. Cally almost got eaten by a lion. Both Chris and I are horribly behind on work. Harmon though was the saddest tale. Last night we did our Tricks or Treats and one guy had a scary garage and scared him. He was so scared last night he wouldn't go to bed and after he finally did he couldn't sleep. He woke up about 4 times and kept sneaking into our bed. When Daddy would go to move him back to his room he would say, "Leave me alone Daddy, I'm not doing anything!" I felt so bad for him. We will be more careful where we go next year.
So does this mean we are scaling back? Nah! It was a great year. I've learned to control the candy consumption and will be more careful where we trick or treat. Otherwise I wouldn't change a thing. We had 2 great parties, celebrated with so many great friends, had some special moments with our kids at the various activities, and just had a great time.
The only thing that I still wonder though is: who took our Halloween candy??? We never had a trick or treater I noticed the full bucket when we got home at 9:30 (it is a gated community) but this morning when Miriam got to work the bucket we had left outside was mysteriously empty... I'm glad! They took all our crummy candy we had amassed that past few months from pinatas and other special events. Now we can sit back and enjoy the kids good chocolate!!!!
