For so long this was such a downer forum for me because our symptoms were so out of control. It feels good to put a positive story here, even if it does make people cry.
Thought I'd bump this. Tonight was the 3rd year in a row my sister has done this. Alethea is aparently too young to remember last year (she just turned four) and she said she didn't want to go Trick or Treating. When she did agree to go, she didn't want to carry a bag because as she puts it, "I can't have any candy!". My mom and sister took my kids around and when they came back she was just so excited by all her Lefa loot! There were different little prizes and my sister had made homemade suckers with Enjoy Life chocolate chips.
BTW, my dh and I reconciled in Jan 2011 (10 months ago) so we were all together again for this Halloween.
What lovely sister/aunty! You are blessed to have her (I know you already know that )
