Grumpy, Sick Little Witch...Happy Halloween!!

Addy has been so excited for Halloween this year. I bought her costume the first of September and she has begged to wear it everyday since. Over the last couple of months, she had perfected her witch laugh and learned how to cast a spell with her special "Witch Lawned" (Witch Wand)
But to my surprise Addy woke up at 1:00am on Halloween Eve with a bad cold. All stuffed up and running a fever. She was up all night! So you can imagine what our day was like today. She was so excited but too sick/tired/grumpy to enjoy it. We went to the trick-or-treat on Springville main and then she came back to the house to hand out candy. After a few knocks she kept saying "Mommy, Addy Jayne trick-or-treat?" I felt so bad... so I gave her some Motrin and we headed out to a couple houses in our neighborhood. She loved it, so I was glad we ventured out.
Halloween is bad luck for us, last year she had only been home for 3 days after being hospitalized for Pneumonia. So we didn't do much last year either to say the least.
Here's to next year and to a healthy, Happy Halloween!!

She didn't want any pictures!

So cute! Up until about 2 years ago, we had Kyson in the hospital with croup every Halloween. We feel your pain. He has now outgrown it for the most part and can enjoy Halloween.

I know just how she feels! But man she was the cutest little witch ever! I love that costume, and she wore the hat even. I think every year we need to go to St. George to get Halloween costumes, what do you think! :)

I wish I had a girl just so I could get this costume!!! So darling!! Sorry to hear Addie is sick! I hate this time of year just for the fact that Ethan always gets pneumonia. Hopefully he is grown out of it this year :)I haven't talked to you forever...how are things?
