Sam wanted to be a ballplayer for Halloween. Actually, he is Albert Pujols. That boy loves his baseball!!Jacob had wanted to be something from Bakugan, but when we got to the store, there were no costumes in his size. He was very disappointed and had to settle for whatever was in his size-which wasn't much. However, once we got home and he tried on this Star Wars costume, he began to really like it. And I think it looks great on him!!!! Hannah was a princess, mostly because we had gotten it in Disney World this year and since we had already spent the money on it, why get something else? Plus, she loves the princesses. We had to stick a sweat shirt and jeans on underneath, so she would stay warm. The weather was perfect!! The kids didn't have to wear coats. Alan took them out and Hannah walked most of the way. Sam was very good about helping her at each house. Jacob got what he wanted this year and went around with our next door neighbors. It was so good of Laurie to take him and he had a blast!!! We had a lot of kids this year-probably because of the weather. I had 5 1/2 bags of candy(the other 1/2 bag had been eaten before today), then I handed out Hannah's and Sam's candy, then I began searching through the pantry for anything in a single serving. This included fruit snacks, small bags of pretzels, and yogurt covered pretzels. Alan took Sam out again and he got some more, so he wasn't left with nothing. And Jacob had a bunch, so we can share. Everyone had a great time!!
This is Hannah's owie from today. She was chasing Sam around the house, tripped and fell into the corner of the sofa. She had a gaping hole in her forehead, so once we got it to stop bleeding, I headed for the Urgent Care. Our Childrens Urgent Care moved, so I went to the UNMC urgent care and I was nervous. At Children's, they take care of kids. I knew them and knew how they did things. However, this place was great. We walked right in, had someone come right to us to get a numbing agent on her head, then they took us back, wrapped her up and stitched her up. She screamed the whole time and it was very stressful for me. but the doctor and nurse handled it perfectly. She only needed one stitch-which shocked me and we were back home within about 45 minutes. Amazing. She took her nap laying on my chest, and then was right back to running around and chasing the boys. I just knew we were going to be back there before the day was done. So in spite of the rocky time, we had a fabulous Halloween. Everyone had a blast and now we are all headed for bed. Trick or treat.
