Halloween 2012

This year, Halloween was a scrapped together event.  Luke had been sick for weeks.  He kept getting one thing after another and had had everything from a cold, to pinkeye, to the stomach flu, to a high fever that we could not pinpoint the cause.  His immune system was shot and I was not about to bring a bunch of candy into our house to tempt him with.

I asked another family if they would mind taking Cyan and Logan to a Harvest Party that our church was putting on so I wouldn’t have to drag the sick baby out Trick-or-Treating.  They threw together some costumes from our dress up and headed out.

I hung out with my sweet baby in the Ergo handing out candy to all the folks who came by and watching the Twilight movies one after the other while standing and rocking back and forth so my sweet babe could get some relief.

Today he is better.  Today he ate food and he is smiling.  His runny nose is almost gone and his temperature is normal.  October is over and now we get to celebrate Thankfulness, grace, and the people we love. 

I am ready. <3
