Yesterday morning Davis asked if we could go to the library.  So we all piled into the car to go.  He had asked a few times the last week or so, but for some reason or another we just weren't able to go. So he was pretty excited. After about 5 minutes, he had only picked out one book.  Now, my kids read an hour before bed every night. Every. night.  So they go through a lot of books.  So when Davis had only picked out one book, I gave him kind of  a hard time about it.  What's the deal?  Then he asked me if he could just go lay down on the couch in the corner. Uh. oh. :(

And when we got home I took his temperature. 101.1.  Yupper.  No trick or treating for you.  Okay, I admit it, I thought about going with him to a trunk or treat (NOT our usual fair, frankly, we consider that sort of cheating here at the Schueller house, lol) or something.  But he was really not doing well.  And when I offered to bring him somewhere he said he didn't want to get anyone else sick. What an awesome kid!  So I asked him what we could do to make his night better, and he asked for a movie.  Done!  We ran to the video store to pick one out. And he wore his costume there, just so he'd be able to show somebody the costume that night.  But now what do we do for Haley???  It's not really fair to make her stay home just because Davis is sick. Aunt Susan to the rescue!!!

My sister Susan drive all of the way to my house (the opposite direction of where they actually trick or treat, which is by my mother's home 35 minutes away) just to pick up Haley and bring her trick or treating.

But the best part?  Aunt Susan dressed up in that costume JUST so that she could trick or treat too!! She gave all of her candy to Davis so that he'd still have his own stash. :)  Seriously.  That's one awesome Aunt. She defintely has cool points right now.  When he woke up this morning the first thing he said was "I am so glad that Aunt Susan did that for me."

When we were taking pictures, suddenly Davis appeared in costume. I thought he just wanted to get in the picture... but he told me later that he was going to try to go to a few houses with them.  (He thought they were going in our neighborhood).  It was so hard to watch him.  He was so exhausted.. but yet so sad about the whole thing.

But that was all better when Aunt Susan showed up with the candy!

This was at 10 at night. That smile is so big I can't even explain it. This is my junk food boy. He LIVES for Halloween. No kidding.  When she handed him a WHOLE candy bar, woah, that smile was true. :)  Of course, if he hadn't been sick and tired, he would have been jumping up and down and I wouldn't have gotten the picture, lol.

And here's Haley with her Hershey's bar.  She had an amazing night. This morning she came into my room and told me about the entire night. She was HIGH on sugar and happiness. It was awesome. She was talking fast, not making any sense and just purely joyful.  Halloween was officially awesome. :)
