A Halloween Conversation

Last week was Halloween.  However, because hurricane Sandy had barrelled through our town just days before our town decided to reschedule Halloween for Sunday night instead (who knew that was even possible).  Garren dressed up as Slenderman, Cole was a can of Spam, Ben was a killer hot dog (in case you are wondering that's a hot dog that carries around a ninja sword), and Jeff was a scary clown. The kids had a great time running through the neighborhood trick-or-treating with their friends.

I know people have been worried about how we handle this holiday with Ben's T1, but after three Halloweens now the holiday isn't as scary as it was back in 2009.  We have worked out a system of keeping some candy and buying back the rest.  We always end our Halloween celebration with a trip to the Target toy aisle.  So far the boys have seemed happy with our changes, but I have never asked them directly.  I thought maybe it was time to ask.  So I sat down with Ben on Monday and asked him a few questions about how his Halloween went this year.

Because talking to Ben is always entertaining I have included our conversation here ...
