Well, Lana has strep throat. Poor girl! Her throat, neck and head hurt. She's existing on applesauce, chicken soup and pudding. Thank goodness I just made 35 quarts of applesauce, she's already gone through one just herself! She is devestated that she missed school yesterday and today. Oh, the tears. You would've thought she was missing Christmas. I wonder how long that will last.

Last night Lana was FINALLY able to put on her costume (princess, of course) and go out trick-or-treating. Trent refused to wear a costume, surprise surprise, but he had camo pants on and carried his pop gun, while Matt wore his full hunting gear and carried the other pop gun. He was a little scary. Somehow, people still gave Trent candy even though he totally wasn't dressed up. I told him he was cheating, but I don't think he cared. Some other little kids came with us (Ruthie, Joanna and John) who I think had just as much fun. Especially Ruthie. She held Trent's bag for him and he had to keep reminding her that it wasn't HER candy, she was just holding it for him. Fun times. And way too much chocolate. Ugh. Extra minutes on the elliptical, here I come!

Today I'm spending the day making applesauce with Ashley. Sounds exciting, I know, but I've barely had 2 minutes to talk to Ash in the past 6 months, so I've been looking forward to this day for months!
