Halloween is a pretty big deal for most kids. When kids are in the hospital, it's my job to make sure it's a huge deal. The entire month of October is really devoted to all things Halloween. Between the parties, movies, costume shop, Halloween Bingo and more... whew, I am one pumpkin short of a very large patch. October went out with a bang yesterday as we had our Halloween Carnival and petting zoo. The kids wear their costumes and trick-or-treat around the hospital as well. One mom told me yesterday that her son was sad about being in the hospital for Halloween, but that this was actually one of the best Halloweens they've ever had... collective *awww*. Here are some highlights of the day.
Gotta love an office where you can do this.
Our petting zoo in the garden.
Today starts the Christmas season for me at work, so ho ho ho... fa la la la la... and all of that merry stuff. Seriously, though... bring on the reindeer games!
