Happy 1st Halloween

Despite spending over an hour at the doctor's office this morning, Bryce had a wonderful 1st Halloween! This morning when I was getting Bryce dressed, I noticed his belly was covered in a rash. I called the doctor because I was concerned that maybe he was having a reaction to the Tamiflu. So we went back to the doctor for the THIRD time this week. After waiting for an hour, we finally go to see the doctor and got a better diagnosis of what has been bothering Bryce this week. The doctor didn't think that the rash was caused from the Tamiflu, and since he never really thought Bryce had the flu, he suggested we go ahead and stop the medicine. He thinks it may have been a case of Roseola. Well since he said the Tamiflu wasn't causing the rash, we decided to go ahead and give Bryce another dose of it for preventative measures since we spent so long in the waiting room with TONS of other sick children (better safe than sorry). I am crossing my fingers that we are finally on the road to recovery.

The pediatrician's office is right by our house, but that location is not open on Saturdays so we had to go to the office on the other side of town. We didn't really complain because we were able to stop by Krispy Kreme before the appointment and load up on all the fun, fall, festive donuts! It's a good thing it's not any closer to us because we might be there EVERY Saturday (we love William's Bakery just as much). We got my favorite (sprinkle donuts) and Jason's favorite (custard filled). We also got some fun jack-o-lanterns, footballs, skulls, and pumpkin spice cake donuts. D.E.L.I.C.I.O.U.S.

Jason was getting everything ready for trunk-or-treat tonight and was ecstatic when Bryce had a liking for the goose decoys. Jason is pretty sure Bryce said goose while he was playing with them! As much as I try to deny it, he's going to be a hunter just like his Daddy.

Our church normally has a fall festival on Halloween. This year we had trunk-or-treat. Families decorate their trunk or bed of their truck with a kid friendly theme and pass out candy to the kids in the community. Here is Jason's "kid friendly" goose blind themed trunk. I'm not really sure many kids "got it", but maybe they did. We had a ton of candy to hand out, but Jason was more interested in handing out the goose jerky he made last weekend. Jason didn't have a hard time dressing up this year. Still doesn't compare to the inflatable Elvis.

Goose Blind or Duck Blind (whatever) long as it flies.

And here is our little elephant. It sure was hard to get a good picture of him.

Cousin Chase in his lion costume!

Aren't they just the cutest?

Hope everyone had a fun, safe, and exciting Halloween. I know we did!

So sweet! You would have died...they threw like 6 cardboard boxes of candy out onto the gym floor and it was nasty. Then your husband took the big dirty nasty mop and swept it all up and I was no longer interested in the candy!! Ha!
