I thought this would be the year we’d finally get Justin interested in Halloween (our kids have never gone trick-or-treating), mainly because he was due to have a little party at preschool. But he was sick all week and couldn’t go to preschool, and despite our best efforts he wouldn’t even touch his costume. I sent both boys out on a walk with Dad to at least get a look at the decorations in the neighborhood (Brayden did wear a costume for that and was very, very cute, but our camera was out of batteries) but Justin whined and complained the entire time. He’s still getting over a touch of the flu and hasn’t been himself, but we’ve never had any luck on the Halloween front any other year, either, so apparently it’s just not his thing. Don’t most kids love getting dressed up and collecting candy? Oh, well.
