So the kids couldn't go trick-or-treating on Monday night....Jared had croup and Klara has a cold. What does one do in a case like this? Why, you call "Triple T" to help! Who is Triple T, you ask? Triple T is short for "Trick or Treat Troll." He's a pretty nice guy who goes around and trick-or-treats for sick little kids who can't go out. When they wake up in the morning, they will find their bags full of candy.
You should have saw old "Triple T" at the store at midnight trying to replicate an authentic trick or treat bag for three kids!
This is what the "troll" came up with. Or was that a "she devil" that brought it? Oh, who knows, *giggle*
Can you say "kiddy crack" boys and girls?! Oh my gosh! Klara, especially, is a major candy addict and once she gets her fill she is a maniac! Ritalin anyone? Just kidding...
So, we averted crying and whining and everyone was happy. Now the only challenge is to keep them from trying to commit suicide by eating the whole thing at once! We don't keep candy in our house, usually, so when they get something like this they freak out.
On a sad note, the man who we went to church with who had the stroke passed away last night. He was only 44 and has kids at home. So, we will be going to a visitation tomorrow and a funeral Thursday. I feel just awful and want to help his family so badly, but there is nothing that can be done to fix this. I'm going to take food out there tomorrow and we will do anything we can...but it's just not something that is fixable. Rich did make it to the hospital yesterday before he died and spent some time with the family. It's just such a nightmare. Not for him, of course, he is in Heaven. But for his family, it will be a while before they adjust to life without him on this earth.
I will end this entry with a tag from Donna
