Of all things, I was worried that my kids would end up with a horrendous food allergy like to peanuts or shellfish or something like that. You hear stories about kids who can't even go to school because their allergy is so bad.  Well... just his luck, Reggie found out he was allergic to peanuts today. He has eaten peanut butter before and he seemed to do fine with it in his belly, but wherever it touched him on his skin he broke out in hives.

I craved peanut butter like no other when I was pregnant with him; I think I ate it almost every day for lunch. Of course I can't help but think that had something to do with it. Oh, I hope not. His doctor said that there is a correlation of other nut allergies with that of peanuts, so he has to stay away from them all. We even have to carry an epi-pen now, just in case.

 It's going to be rough because we love peanut butter around here. Poor little nugget. It looks like we're going to have to switch to Biscoff Spread. That stuff is tasty.

A Note

I saw a mouse in the garage the other day so Davey went to get mousetraps and he took Adelaide with him. She has been fascinated with it ever since. She hasn't seen it but she inspects the traps each day to see if it's been caught. She put this note on the door to the garage today to make sure her friends don't go in... she doesn't want it to get them. The drawing on the left is of one of her friends (a boy), and the one on the right is the mouse. If the mouse really looked like that I wouldn't want it to get me either!

Randy and Davey transformed our wagon into the Mystery Machine from Scooby Doo. It looks awesome doesn't it?
 Adelaide and Reggie were Daphne and Fred.
 Adam, Jen and their girls came down to trick or treat in our awesome neighborhood. So we added a Tinkerbell, Strawberry Shortcake, and a kitty to the gang.
The older three girls had fun trick or treating. These two mostly had fun playing tug-of-war with a sucker and sitting in the wagon. It was the warmest Halloween I can remember, it was awesome!
