Stop Nagging Me Already

Yes yes yes. I know....I'm a bad mother and didn't post any Halloween pictures for you....so live with it. I sent a couple to my mother via camera phone and that's it.

Connor went as a Lil' Devil. I tried explaining to the people who oooooohed and aaaaahed that it wasn't a costume but they just laughed.......I wasn't kidding.

Lauren went as an Angel, complete with great big white wings (purchased), one silver halo (made- that promptly broke as soon as we made our first steps), one long flow-ee shirt trimmed with silver medallion thingys (shirt purchased, I sewed the medallion thingys on), and one really long skirt in a nice silvery-white, trimmed with more silver medallion thingys (I made the skirt and sewed the medallion thingys on - my sewing machine resisted all attempts to be operated by a sewing idiot...but I eventually put it in the head lock and it gave in), outfit completed with tights and tennis shoes (she wanted to wear a pair of her sandals that she had this summer that had heels - I told her she was smoking crack and to go get her tennis shoes on).

I was supposed to dress up as a witch but that didn't work out unfortunately. Charles wasn't feeling very well so I didn't have time to get all made up...I had even gone out and bought some warts, and ugly nose and a long chin to glue on, and some witch's make-up. Charles was supposed to go as a convict (black & white striped costume) - but instead he was a prisoner of the sandman.

Boys 1&2 both went as NINJA's, and I can tell you, it was funny as hell watching them trying to creep up on a couple of the houses and sneak some candy. They were gotten back by one man who had dressed up as a zombie and was propped in the corner of a porch (think floppy looking...like a scarecrow) with the bowl of candy on his lap....they went to grab and WHAMMO!!! instant screaming and crying Ninja's. They didn't take it well.....and yeah, I may be cruel....but I'm STILL laughing at that.

Stinky and Redhead were there too. Redhead led the way and made sure no children got to far ahead. Stinky at candy while fussing at the kids that they couldn't have any until it was inspected *chew, slobber, gulp*. (I fussed at him - his response? - that piece was okay).

All the kids fell asleep on the way home - except for Lauren, and we stopped by our neighbors house S & J and then we were home again. Boy 2 (4 years old) wouldn't wake up and was tucked in to bed in his costume, Boy 1 (6 years old) briefly regained conscienceness for just enough time to remove his costume, slip on some pj's and was off to bed.

Superbaby (18 months old) woke up when we pulled in the driveway and was immediately stripped, wiped down, dressed and put to bed....er...crib.

Lauren (8 years old) however, immediately dumped her bucket of candy onto the dining room table and sorted everything in little piles of all candy that was the same and hovered over it until I inspected it. I was expecting her to devour at least a couple of pieces, but she was content that only 3 pieces got the heave-ho and put it all away again after looking at her sugar treasure once more, counted it carefully, and put it all back in the bucket. She took a shower and went to bed.

The adults just kind of looked at each other and went to bed. All of us were in bed by 8 pm.....a true sign that we're all getting old.

Hope you all had a great time...I'm going to sneak some candy.....see ya later.

Hey, Nikki! Been missing you! We too, turned out the lights at 8pm - but that's actually normal for us. Z-boy got lots of loot, which we spilled out onto the living room floor and checked out. I didn't see anything suspicious, but my dear hubby says the police found a needle in a tootsie roll, so we're gonna go over it again. Sigh. I hate it when some kook ruins it for everyone!

LOL, sounds like fun.
My kids were superman (muscels adn all) and Cinderella. Cinderella is 3 1/2 and she let everyone know how annoyed she was with them when they called her a princess and not Cinderella.
My husband was sick so I ended up going out alone with both kids. Uggg.
I guess we all had a good time.

Sayre - dahhling. That ass. Who puts crap like that in candy. I hope they die painfully. They deserve it for what they were trying to do to the kids.

Carm - WILMA??!!! oh, OH, OOOHHH NOOOOO you didn't.... okay - it's funny, but I won't admit to that.

Mr Fab - what? and gain your weight too? no thanks. I have enough ass flab.

Pend - I'm curious as to what story you're going to come up with to blame it on my son...we live in different contries LOL

HK - i hear you. Haloween is always hectic.

Nikki - do I know how to sew? Ummmm....NO. I now the basic principle of joining fabric and that's about it. The only reasons I let her go out in public with that skirt were 1) is was dark. and 2) it was going to get darker. LOL

Jazz - this is the second Halloween in a row he hasn't gone...last halloween he had menengitis and this Halloween he was sick again.. I swear, the extremes that man will go to...LOL

Me - girl, you better watch out. Just nibble on the candy at the office.

Kim - I love your template chickie.

Jenny - girl, you better come get em....those kids are like a pack of wolves around that candy...and Connor LOVES him a Kit Kat. You're on your own at the candy bowl chick.
I'll stand by with bandaids and neosporin.

Super - LOL That's a good idea. and congrats to Capin' Jack.

Carm - DID YOU JUST POKE ME WITH A SHARP STICK? Dude...that hurt.

Jeff - wait until you have kids hon LOL

Iris/Rissy - welcome and thanks

Mother Jones - Welcome and thanks to you too!
