Food Allergies

I stumbled upon this very well written blog post about peanut allergies. This mom really hit the mark. Be a good blog reader 'o mine and read it!

In case you didn't know, last Halloween was how we discovered Kate's peanut allergy. We plan to allow her to trick or treat on Friday but all of the loot will be placed outside for "The Great Pumpkin" who will leave a non-edible treat in exchange for the candy. Who needs all that sugar anyway?! I'm sure Kevin's co-workers will appreciate it. :)

sorry for the allergy btw.

What a great idea Kristen! I wonder if the Great Pumpkin comes to the houses of Mother's who are sugarphobes?

Love the costumes!
