Let Me Run With You Tonight, I'll Take You On a Moonlight Ride

The leaves have fallen, the gluten-free goodie bags for trick or treaters have been made, the costumes have been washed, dried and ready to go.

I love Halloween.

I know that it seems odd for us to trick or treat, given the children's harsh allergies (hello, I had to WASH their costumes). But just because they can't eat any of their treats, except for dum dum lollipops and swedish fish, doesn't mean they should miss out of one of the greatest nights for being a kid.

Have fun! Elise isn't going to be eating much (if any) of the candy she gets either, but it will still be fun. Stay warm!

I was wondering about your boys and trick or treating. I'm very happy that they get to enjoy it! And dum-dums and Swedish fish are pretty good!

Happy Halloween!!!

I would do the same thing if Max had terrible allergies, but I know once we got home we would have an ugly fight about all the stuff he couldn't eat. Still, no kid should have to miss out on the social fun of trick or treating. I'm glad your boys are going to get to go out on the town with everyone else.

Have fun!!

Have a wonderful evening! I'm glad the boys get to enjoy the event of ToT...

(do you all just get rid of the candy that they can't eat, or do you trade them for it? Seems to me that I read somewhere once that to make it easier for kids with allergies, take them trick or treating, but then when they get home, let them trade all the stuff they can't eat for goodies that they can....)

Please tell me that swedish fish aren't herrings-on-a-stick ???

Hey...my neice refuses to eat her candy (she just won't try it...no problemo there!) and we still have tons of fun! (more for me...hahaha) I loved the goodie bags too...My friend down south was going to their library who was throwing a party for Halloween...only fun little toys for the kids, and chocolate for the adults! I love that idea!!!

I can see I missed a lot since I was gone. Can't wait to see kids in costumes. Hope you're all feeling better and tell all about your cool fall fabric! Man, I missed all the news. (and I was inappropriate several times on my trip by the way!)

It's great that you still take them out despite the allergies. I think the funnest part of Halloween is being out collecting treats, looking at decorations, and looking at other people's costumes. And I already culled my son's load... no red40 or yellow5!
