the delayed Halloween report


Our day was filled with trick-or-treating at grandma and grandpa’s and in our own neighborhood, pumpkin carving, costume wearing, candy eating, and Anna pushing her baby in the stroller everywhere we went.

Mia chose their costumes months ago.  I love that she has been a black cat for two years in a row, and she is perfectly content with such a simple costume.

Every year I feel differently about the candy issue.  Normally I have a lot of anxiety about the toxic stuff, but this year I was able to let go a little, even letting Anna eat a little Hershey bar.

After a couple of days, we threw out what was left of the candy (with Mia’s permission, believe it or not), because “Halloween is over!”
