Happy Halloween!!!!

I hope everyone had a nice Halloween, it was a BEAUTIFUL one!!! This is only the 2nd Halloween I ever remember where we weren't bundled up in coats...usually you pay $50 for a stupid costume nobody ever sees because it's too cold to show it!!!! But tonight was beautiful. The kids didn't have school I got to sleep in YAY ME!!! Then we went to Isaiah's appt w/ his DAN Dr. that went well, and we're on to step 2 where we're starting some supplements in addition to the diet. We are a week into the diet, and I haven't seen much if any change, until today...a physical change. I was running my fingers threw Isaiah's hair loveingly, when I relized something was missing. For the first time in 4 years there was no psoriasis. Isaiah has had a patch of psoriasis on head, a round spot at least 2x2...well it's gone completely. Mind you I have tried every single product on the market and have begged the pediatrition for something stronger because nothing has gotten rid of it. I mean we're talking to where its thick and bleeding when it's at it's worst...and now it's gone, not a cm of it that's exciting. No changes in behaviors though, but hey it's only been a week!!! So after the Dr. appt we went to the orchard, they had an AMAZING event set up there, I hope they make this a yearly tradition it was so cool! Everything was free (which normally for a family of 5 you're looking at dropping $100 down for a day trip)...they had BOO CHOO rides (this little make shift train attatched to a tractor), hay rides, trick or treating in the animal farm (which I must say they got as much candy there as they did trick or treating in our entire neighborhood!), Pete the pumpkin eating dragon (made out of a crane) was "awake" (during normal days he only "wakes" up once an hour to do a show) Isaiah LOVES Pete...every since our first trip there 4 years ago, Isaiah waves to Pete every time we drive by the orchard. It was so much fun! Then we went home and it was time to trick or treat. Xander lasted an hour then he was ready to go home. So I took him home and Rob and the older two finished trick or treating. They have WAY too much candy...but we sure did have alot of fun!
