We have a church halloween festival (indoors) and that's all I do with my littler ones. As they get older if they want to bundle up for outdoor TorT that's fine with me. My 10yo likes to go out.
I do make them toasty warm costumes. Furry animals with hoods (for the ears) are great

mama I'm so sorry. I know it's not super close, but I'm just down the road from you in Homer. If you need/want somebody to talk with, or just process stuff, I've had several miscarriages (at least 4) and I know how much it helped me to have someone who had been there to talk with.
Who was the horrible OB? I am going to make his office one of the first on my list when we start our miscarriage awareness campaign. I am so mad that an OB
would be so clueless.
Speaking of miscarriage awareness campaign...those of you on FB probably know, but I've gotten quiet in most places (including MDC) because I've been pouring my energy this last month into starting a nonprofit organization. Our intent is to educate and increase awareness for miscarriage, but that's secondary--our bigger goal is to network doulas who are willing to attend women during and after miscarriages. I don't remember if I'm allowed to post links about NPOs or not here, so I'll just stick with saying that we're called The Amethyst Network and we're on FB and twitter or you can PM me for more info.
