Halloween is over. Thank goodness.

Halloween gets so overdone around here that by the time the actual day rolls around I'm so over it.  In fact, I started thinking about it and realized my children have never actually trick-or-treated in their lives.

I see this as a victory.

There's trunk-or-treat at church, trick-or treat in the OC dorms, and a costume parade at school. I declare that enough for one holiday.
Leave it to Mia to be a demented looking vampire. Although I'll take this any day over a princess.
OC trick-or-treat is like a huge college reunion. If that college reunion were in a tiny, cramped hallway of your old dormitory. Which it is.
 Mia's friends are sweet things like sock monkeys and Mary Poppins.

 The boy cousins had a Star Wars theme this year. At the rate these little nerds are going, they will be dressing as Star Wars characters for at least ten more years.
 Halloween costumes are cuter the smaller they are. Case in point: Cohen as a shark.
I would say I love Halloween because I get to pilfer through my kids candy buckets, but let's be real, I'm a grown up now and I can buy myself candy whenever I want.

And I do. A lot. Like, almost every day. Ok, fine, every day. Fine, multiple times a day.

HA. All these are the alternatives to actual trick or treating which is good/sad thing to me! But I know what you mean. I still go with my little neighbors and enjoy just walking around the neighborhood chatting with them. Also giving dirty looks to the ones who look way too old...

l successfully talked my 5-yr-old out of being a scary vampire this year...i told him his school doesn't allow scary costumes (which I'm not quite sure if that's true, but I thought it sounded good)...not sure if that excuse will work next year!
