I still can't believe that Halloween is less than an hour away. This year seems to have flown by so fast, that I almost didn't see it coming. With that, my daughter has been looking forward to Halloween and trick or treating for months now. She wanted to be Anna from Frozen, and then Ariel, Rapunzel, Snow White and even an Avenger before settling on Tinkerbell.
Last week, I started looking at the forecast for tomorrow, in hopes that it would be better than last year. It was cold and rainy on Halloween, which put a huge wrench in our trick or treating tradition. We ended up trick or treating at a nearby mall, that was completely out of candy by the time we got there.
Each year, even before I became a mom, I'd meet up with family members and we'd take the kids trick or treating as a group. It was fun, it was our thing to do. One year, I even flew 600 miles to make it home in time to keep up the tradition.
You can imagine my disappointment when I saw rain in the forecast, AGAIN. I was annoyed, but optimistic. My daughter wasn't old enough to truly understand trick or treating either of the times we've gone since she's been born. Now at almost four, she's so excited and has even practiced in the house a few times.
Not only is it supposed to rain tomorrow, but it's only supposed to be about 50 degrees, which s an absolute bummer. We have plans to visit a Pumpkin Farm in the morning, and then meet up for group trick or treating. At the moment, the forecast still looks pretty crappy.
I'm really hoping the rain holds off until the evening, and that the forecast gets just a tad bit better. I know I'm pretty much hoping for a miracle, but I really want my daughter to enjoy herself tomorrow. Oh, and not wasting money on a costume and accessories will be good too. If all else fails, I guess will try to hit one of the malls again, early this time of course.
We'll see if the Chicago weather does us a favor this year, and lets our babies enjoy Halloween.
