Allergy Free Halloween

So, how do we handle Halloween?  We have to be SO careful, and we provide our own treats.  We decided to go to our church's trunk-or-treat this year.  I contacted the children's minister and we talked about our options.  We decided that I would make a treat bag for each trunk.  That way, the individuals working at each trunk could hand us our own treat bag and know that it was safe and had not been mixed with the other candy.  So, we can dress up, play games, and get candy that I provided.  Yes, we rig Halloween.  We're parents.  Not only are we Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, and the Tooth Fairy.  We are what?  The ghosts of Halloween candy?  Oh well, it works for us.  The hour I spent making 30 treat bags will pay off!

UNLESS...........we get sick and can't go.  But we did have a great plan! 

Instead, Daddy hid in the house with candy and the kids took glow sticks and searched through the dark to find him.  He scared them good a few times, and they enjoyed their hunt.  Then they sat down and ate a few sweet tarts and went to bed. 

At least we have some good ideas for next year!
