Better late than never, I suppose ...

The last few weeks have been most challenging, but we're doing much better now. I'll save the details for another time.

Stephen has been sick but is feeling better today and was able to go trick-or-treating around the block tonight. A new thing for us was going "trunk-r-treating" at our church after the trip around our block. The children's church staff held a cool event indoors for the kids and after the program, everyone decorated their cars and handed out candy from the trunks. Some of the mini van people even had buckets of water and apples so the kids could  go "bobbing for apples." (no, thanks. that never was for me.)  Stephen was exhausted when we got home. After he ate a Peanut Butter Cup (bless his heart, that's all he wanted), his dad gave him his bath while I put this little graphic together up there of Stephen and our pumpkin. In case you're wondering,  he was a scaredy-pumpkin. The little thing is sleeping like a baby now. I'm still trying to decide on whether or not he'll go to school tomorrow. I'm leaning towards seeing how he is and then just check him in if he's okay.

Please keep him in your prayers. He's a tough little dude and I know he'll be just fine. He's getting over a virus and just doesn't feel like himself yet.

Hope you all had a nice Halloween. We'll update ASAP. Right now, mommy is pretty tired as well. :-)

Stephen looks so cute, Mia.  And so happy.  The perfect scaredy-pumpkind, I do believe.  <grin>

You better believe I'll be keeping the little man in my prayers.  Hope he's feeling better in no time!

I love the Halloween photo/graphic. Hi, Stephen!

I'm so sorry he's getting over being ill again. Poor little boy, but his parents rock. I know you write all the time about how lucky you are to have him, but he's also lucky to have you.

I love the trick-or-trunk idea. And I hope Stephen was feeling much better the next day. All he wanted was one peanut butter cup? ::sniff::

I will definitely keep Stephen in my thoughts and prayers (I don't pray often, but when I do, it's always with someone's hurts in mind).

my son gives up half way through trick or treating,

Stephen you are simply adorable with that great smile, what a scary picture too.  Hope you're all better.  Seems like you always get that darn virus this time of year.
