Happy Halloween! It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.
It's been an eventful week. DJ and I made it through Race for the Cure last Saturday (Go Team Linda Lou!) however shortly thereafter DJ starting coming down with a cough and cold. He has spent the rest of the week home with Daddy healing and recovering. It's been on tough on both of them however, he is finally feeling better. It is horrible all around Iowa with sickness but, keeping him home has healed him.
DJ and Daddy have had several play groups at the library with Story Time and Book Babies. It's great for DJ to get interaction with others and Devon to be able to get out of the house for some adult interaction. DJ really enjoys the stories, the musical interaction and other kids.
Today they carved DJ's pumpkin for Halloween! They did a great job and when I got home it fun to see their hard work.
Then we dressed DJ up for Halloween and even though it was cold/rainy and windy we had a plan! We took DJ to Merle Hay Mall for Trick or Treating. They have a great kid's play area and it's just the right size for what we wanted. He had a good time was able to show off his costume which was the Great Minnesota Viking. His jersey from Uncle Bob, Adrian Peterson, came in VERY handy. We had a great costume from the Kaduce's we were borrowing however, it was too big. So maybe next year!
Devon and DJ decided that the Viking costume would be just fine and we got lots of compliments!!
Trick or Treat!
Let's hope this weekend just allows us to get healthier, stay that way and maintain!
