Our sweet goblins woke up with all smiles and ready to tackle the day! (One even woke up with the extra fun of a 101 temp...yay!) We kept the treats from us to a minimum this year.... favorite drinks, $1 socks, and a Target gift card from Gigi and Pops!
The girls were off to school and Radley and I were off to the doctor...
And my suspicions were confirmed by the positive strep test. Yuck. Luckily he was in pretty good spirits, the Tylenol kept his throat from hurting, and we went to the doctor as early as we could get in, which meant two rounds of meds by early evening.
I still didn't want to take the chance of spreading his yuckies to his friends, so we didn't make it to the annual Halloween Party at the Bailey's. Instead, we opted for an early brinner and trick-or-treating down the street. Like we were out the door by 5:45pm - ha!
To add to the yuck of the day - Ryan got stuck at work, so I was on my own with the traveling Disney parade!
As sad as we were to miss the party, it was kind of nice to just walk out the door and start our journey. At first we came up pretty empty handed - didn't seem like anyone was home or handing out the good stuff yet. But, I was in great company - great ADORABLE, HANDSOME and PRECIOUS company!
And then... JACKPOT. I learned very quickly that the houses on our street do Halloween big.
And Landry was very okay with that. She discovered suckers and was in heaven.
(And I'm pretty sure this picture should become the poster for Halloween, Disney and/or dumdums. So if any of you are reading this blog - feel free to hit me up!)
We met one of Emmy's classmates along the way and took a stroll down the street with them.
Some houses even handed out "treats" for the parents.
Y'all. I can't describe the crazy that it was. Big screen tvs, grills, fire pits, you name it - they pulled out. Grilled hot dogs and passed them out to people. REAL food. Dinner. Like as part of Halloween.
Landry seemed to win everyone over with her Snow White - she caught on real quick to playing it up.
Everyone got in on the fun - most of the people that were handing out candy were also dressed up and the kids loved it.
Radley tried to be all smiles, but he was getting pretty tired. so we started to make our way back home.
Landry could have kept going all night.
(And this picture totally reminds me of this buzzfeed. Is that awful?)
Emmy was so brave all night - she didn't let gorillas, or strangers or DOGS hold her back from getting candy!
So while the day didn't go as planned - it ended up being a pretty awesome holiday with my 3 favorite tiny humans.
