Halloween and the aftermath

The kids were very exited for Halloween. Last year we arrived in Canada a few weeks after the festivities, so this time around we couldn’t NOT participate…

A couple of weeks before, they had all been invited to a birthday party that was Halloween themed. They had to go with costumes so I bought a superheroes kit on Amazon (capes and masks), from which they chose whatever they wanted to be for a few hours. I figured they would at least have double duties of these props!

We didn’t decorate, and I didn’t plan to give candies out, because I was planning to accompany the kids around the neighborhood. That was my plan.

On Tuesday afternoon, I felt some tingling down my throat.

Wednesday morning I was totally out of commission. Sore muscles and fatigue all over the body. No more voice. (Aaah! I can’t work! I’m freaking out!)

So the kids went out trick-or-treating around the neighborhood with their dad. Our street had very little participation (only one or two houses). The neighbor across the street was all decorated, but no one was there to give out candies on All Saints’ Eve! Weird.  But my boys walked a little further and were very happy when they came back with bags overflowing with chocolates, candies and chips. “Next year, we’ll need bigger bags!”, they informed me. They didn’t eat very healthy for the following days and there were a few tummy aches to fight. Then Elias was sick with the flu this week end, and now Uriel too… What a way to spend one’s birthday! Happy birthday, stinker. ♥

  1. Poor you! :-/

    For next year, I’d recommend you to pick a neighbourhood “famous” for Halloween. People do that in Ottawa because not all areas celebrate with the same enthusiasm.

Oi! Tudo bom?
