All good things must come to an end.

I am officially declaring Halloween over at the Lashley house. After three trick-or-treating events before the 31st, things are getting out of hand. Mia is constantly sorting and resorting her candy all the while coming up with creative ways to eat more than her daily allotted amount ("Mommy, come and pick out your favorite piece and then we can share it!"), Andy ate an entire Nerds Rope at 1:00 this morning, and unfortunately my diet doesn't include the peanut M&M's that I ate for breakfast. So, when the porch light isn't on tomorrow night you will know why - the Lashleys are in fact home but too busy shoving fistfuls of candy into their mouths to come to the door.

Having to pick just one costume for Halloween - oh the horror!
Mia was Snow White for the church's fall festival:

She was Belle for about ten minutes before OC's trick-or-treating in the dorms (until I nixed her idea of wearing the skirt as a strapless dress and insisted she wear the complete outfit):
And finally she settled on Pocahontas:
This is her "silly pose." And yes, I sent her to Sonshine School today with no shoes because, as Mia so delicately and politely put it, POCAHONTAS DOESN'T WEAR SHOES AND I AM POCAHONTAS!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh, I can remember the days of my youth and the sorting and resorting of candy that follows Halloween. Such good times.

Mmmmmmm.....nerds ropes and peanut butter M&M's. That sounds good.

She's so cute no matter what the costume.

I can't wait until we can get some free candy out of this whole parenting deal:)

Your blog cracks me up! I'm Lisa Starr's friend and found your blog through her. I initially started reading it after you left her a comment referring to Mia's haircut. I have a curly-haired 4yr so your comment caught my attention. Macy's hair started out with waves like Mia's and is now crazy ringlets when I actually "fix it"...Just wanted to let you know you have a follower in Arlington and I come here to have a good laugh...:-)
