We had a great Halloween!

The girls were a black cat, a bunny, and a Carebear. They were adorable!

They went trick or treating for almost two hours!

The parties were good. I'm roommom for one class and assistant roommom for the other so I'm really partied out! But the kids had fun (and stayed gluten-free!).

What were your costumes? they were a ghost ghoul thing, black spiderman, race car driver, and 2 princesses

Did you trick or treat? yes we did but they had more fun handing out candy lol

How'd the school parties go? didnt have parties at school, they go to an private school and due to an religion that doesnt celebrate halloween, they cant have halloween parties. so no costumes at school, but they did play a few fall festival games and did get some candy, so they were happy lol

Well the baby was a dinosaur. And he had to fit in with his older brothers. so he carried a red sox pillowcase up to each house and got candy. Whe the tween and teenage brothers surveyed the candy.. They were taking the candy that the baby could have. meanies. SOOOOO the only problem Halloween presented was when the candy was not put in the bag , and the baby had it . There was an incident where a wrapper ( toddler ...I call him the baby he is two ) he took the wrapper off and I only saw the piece of chocolate , it was a hersheys chocolate with puffed rice. ( I was worried about the MALT that might be in it . ) BUT it was a good run. I am nervous about school parties. I can control it for the most part and so many treats are GLUTEN FREE ... Millions but that one percent always ends up in my kids mouth. He has not been glutend in a few months .. ( he ate some thing his brother left out on a counter, a kids cliff bar) SO hopefully things will go good. chris

We had fire!

And cooked things on the fire.

And made funny faces.

And danced on a pumpkin. Because that's what you do on halloween. :)

They were Ariel and a butterfly princess. Too cute! They had a blast!!! The only sad faces came when we sorted the candy. So much candy went to the office!!! But I refilled the bags with safe treats so all is good in the world again!!

School parties went well. Allergy and gluten safe snacks sent in to share. No reactions and lots of fun. Life is good!

I had a little ladybug and a baby caterpillar. They looked so adorable! We went trick-or-treating, but we only had about 45 minutes because Tori had school the next day. She had a BLAST and the baby slept through it all. It was fun. Luckily, we got mostly gluten free goodies. Even though my daughter is currently eating gluten for testing, I still don't allow any of it to come into my house. I get sick way to easily to have it come in here, especially with messy eaters (husband included). :)

The kids had a great time.

Carleigh was a princess. Nick was a Transformer that actually transformed into a car. I was at the school for the parties, and then we went to a Halloween party. Nick won "Most Original" for his age group and even made it into the newspaper with pictures and a small article. Then they went trick-or-treating for a little while.

Carleigh isn't a big candy eater, since so much is not safe for her. So, we decided to get a webkin to trade for the candy. She picked an adorable little white bunny that she named Candy :lol:


Mom of:

Carleigh~ 10 years old, allergic to wheat, milk, peanuts, strawberries, and many EAs. She is currently soy-light and egg-light ~ celiac testing inconclusive by allergist.

Gluten-Free since 10/05 She's a gymnast. : )

Nick ~ 13 years old with no known allergies.

We had a great Halloween with no glutenings!

Our "candy swap" worked well. My son is allergic to peanuts and my daughter a Celiac so we did a straight swap of peanut candy for gluten candy.

For any suspect gluten + peanut candy, well, my husband and I took care of that very promptly. <_<

My daughter was a bit worried about it, but she made it through with nary a problem!

Oh yeah, my son was a knight in shining armor and my daughter was a Renaissance princess. It worked out splendidly!

We had a good Halloween, too! :) Lucas was Spiderman, and Ezra was Darth Vader (again!)

No glutenings from the school parties, or trick or treat candy! They got ridiculous amounts of candy. :rolleyes: We had to trade out some, but the kids didn't mind. We gave all the gluteny candy to my dad, which he was happy about! :lol: My husband almost never eats candy. (I think he might be an alien.)
