We had such great weather in October this year! perfect for a fun trip to the pumpkin patch.
But that never happened.
Every time I suggested it, the kids wanted to do something else. So I waited. Big mistake! Just when I thought I had the perfect day planned, the weather turn freezing cold. And both boys came down with a nasty cold. Just my luck ;)
So the only one who carved a pumpkin this year was Megan:
I tried to talk our kids out of trick-or-treating this year. They have so many food allergies that there wouldn't be one piece of candy they'd be able to eat. That seemed like a waste. But they really wanted to so I agreed they could go if they donated their candy. That was fine with them! That just goes to show you that it's really all about the dressing up and the fun of running door to door, not as much about the candy.
They also wanted to invite some friends along this year. I know that was part of their reason to go. Who doesn't like running door to door dressed up and WITH FRIENDS?!? Our friends came earlier in the afternoon and the kids played while I chatted with their mother (a had a friend over too!) and made treats we could actually eat :)
These girls are so cute! Fiona was a fairy and Megan was an angel :)
