Halloween

Wednesday, November 2, 2011

Durel, Jack, and I took a pass on Halloween this year.

What?  But you guys love Halloween!

We do love Halloween.  And Durel and I have outdone ourselves with costumes in the past.  But this year, things were different.

This year was the first year in several that Durel didn't have a huge work event at Halloween.

This year, Jack was under the weather for Halloween.

This year, I am crazy busy at work.

So, collectively, we decided to take a pass.

How did that make us feel?  I was probably the saddest of the bunch.  I really enjoy the Halloween party at Jack's school, and was sad that he missed the chance to parade with his buddies past all of the baby rooms (where he used to be) in his "big boy" costume.  

To symbolize both how sad I felt and how inappropriate it would have been to try and make Sicko enjoy this holiday, I provide the following:


And I had asked him to smile. 

Hope your Halloween was terrorific,
Heather

  1. Aww... so sorry Jack was sick. Poor babe, hope he feels better soon! If he was wearing a "this is my costume" t-shirt, you could say he was dressed up as a professional stink-eye giver.

  2. Aw! My daughter was sick last year for Halloween. Really sick. She was young enough that she didn't even notice she'd missed anything. I was the one bummed. This year, we were ready to go all out. She was super excited. Until the actual day. Then she had no interest whatsoever in going trick or treating. LOL

    Stopping by from The Mom Pledge blog hop!
