Last night was Trick or Treat Family Night at New Dawn Health Care Center where my daughter Morgan works. We went her last year when Jadyn was only 8 months old. What a difference a year makes! She was running the halls on her own this year where last year we had to take the stroller in. This is so much fun going here each year and to see the faces of the residents when they see all the children dressed up for Halloween is priceless! Some of them were passing out candy and as we walked by their rooms you could hear them saying "Look at the little chicken! Awwwwww......isn't she cute!" Jadyn would stop and say, "Hi!" and "Bye!" as she left each one, then run to the next door to peak in. She would stop while going down the hall to look down inside her pumpkin bucket to see what all she had in there and to make sure that she hadn't lost any of her candy and treats. They had games to play and she even got a little pumpkin tatoo on her hand. I think it's so wonderful that they do this for the people there! Afterwards we were treated to cider, doughnuts, chips and pretzels in the dining room. All children got a bag of candy and there was costume judging with some of the residents as judges. What a wonderful and safe way to go Trick or Treating!
Have a safe and Happy Halloween everyone! =o)
