If you are coming from Building Heavenly Bridges (BHB), WELCOME and if you are finding me for the first time and looking for support after a loss, then please check me out at my grief/loss blog!

This blog is a series of anecdotes from our life after losing our first child, a stillborn daughter, then going on to birth the two other lights of our lives!

Bear is 6: serious, organized, my cruise director and my time keeper.

The Comedian is 4: She is pure comedy always doing something unintentionaly funny that I attempt to put into words.

Enjoy our stories, conversations, and delights as we embrace the lives of our second and third daughters without ever negating our first.

As Promised...

If you are here then you know that Halloween has been the topic of MUCH discussion in my home this year. The "heavy" part of that discussion is reflected in my recent post at Building Heavenly Bridges. This is the lighter side!

We have to walk to the post office.

We live "too close" to have a mailbox.

To get to the post office you have to walk by the, "Scaaawwwwwyyyyy House"!

(If these images look familiar than THANK YOU for checking out the Virtual World Tour!)

Anyway, the "Scaaaawwwwyyy House" had been decked out since the first day of October. This is our daily conversation.

Me: "Ok ladies, let's walk to the Post Office."

The Comedian: (instantly whining) - "Aaaahhhh. I don't wike the scawwwyyyies."

Me: "It's fine honey, they are all fake." (stressing the word fake)

The Comedian: (still whining and looking genuinely scared) "You pick me up by the scaawwyyies?"

And so I do. Every day, approximately 10 feet from the arfore mentioned home I pick her up. She burries her little face in my fleecy jacket, occasionally peeking with one eye, then shreiking back into my coat.

Approximately 10 feet after the offensive house, I put her down and she is fine until we come back the other way.

So - this begged the question, WHAT THE HECK ARE WE GOING TO DO FOR HALLOWEEN? It is dark and the streets are filled with people dressed up in scary gear! I asked my sweet Comediant exactly that (well I used more toddlerish language - but the message was clear)

She simply said, "I not doing Alloween. It too scaaawwwyyy."

I said, "What do you want to do?" And my sweet, simple little angel gave the perfect answer:

"Stay home with Mommy and eat candy!"

Halloween has never been sweeter. (smile)

Yeah for candy, it is scary! Great decorations at the Scaaaay House.

Kristin said...

Aaaaw...how sweet! I got off easy in the costume department but I have a feeling we will be out for an hour or more getting candy.

LOL...I remember making my dad carry me past a house with a scary scarecrow with a Jason mask on. Enjoy the candy!

Awww that is so sweet! The costumes are so adorable. I can't wait to see my nephews. The 3 year old is going to be a spider and the little one will be a pumpkin. Both were the 3 year olds decision.

Michelle - funny how the older dictates for a few years...then they are met with resistance!
