A Really Sick Halloween

We are not going trick-or-treating on Halloween. We’re staying at home because my daughter has the flu. I don’t know if it’s H1N1 or not but she is really ill and even if she’s feeling better by tomorrow, we still don’t want to risk sharing the germs with the kind folks handing out candy. No, we’re going to stay at home and so I’m planning some fun for us here.

We will bob for apples and then make homemade Candy Apples. We’ll eat them. We will carve our pumpkin and light it up on the kitchen counter with a tea light candle inside. I’ll sprinkle some cinnamon inside so that it smells really nice. We will watch a slightly spooky movie on Netflix–maybe The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. Okay, more than slightly spooky for an 8 year old but she’s sick and sleeping with us anyway. We’ll have popcorn and hot cider while we watch the movie.
I hope all of you who get to trick-or-treat have a great time. We’ll be right here, nesting and eating too much sugar and enjoying our Really Sick Halloween.
