Hurricanes and halloween – those are two words that do not belong together.

As we pick up the pieces from Hurricane Ida and start to plan for fall and Halloween, I can't help but wonder, how will it look this year? I mean, we are still dealing with a worldwide pandemic, and our state is at the top of the list for rising cases. Are we going to be able to finally bring some normalcy back for our littles this season?

Trick-or-treating is such a fun time with the family. Every year, I try to get a theme picked out for my crew so we can match. It's all fun and games until we get to the party store! Then, my perfectly planned out matching costumes goes down the drain. The kids always want to be something totally off track. I have never even heard of some of the characters they talk about and want to dress up as. Like, who is Squirtle? What is Bendy and the Ink Machine? Who is Drift? I am obviously living under a rock! Nevertheless, seeing them in their costumes on Halloween night is always fun.

What will trick-or-treating look like this year? The closer it gets to Halloween, I am hopping that all power will be restored to our city, and that clean up crews are able to get debris removed so our kiddos can go trick-or-treating safely. I'm also really looking forward to seeing the children in their costumes, all dressed up and having fun on Halloween. At least, these are the things I am hoping all for our kiddos will be able to do this year. I'm really looking forward to some normalcy.
