Happy Halloween!


One of my favorite holidays is here, yea! Why do I like Halloween? Well because it's the only night of the year that I can pimp out my kids to score free candy for me!

I dress them up, give them a king size pillow case and send them out with their dad while I pass out candy. Every Halloween we get together with our best friends. My best friend and I enjoy spooky cocktails while the men take the kids around the neighborhood. Depending on the drink of the night, sometimes we become way to generous with the candy giving. We sorta start judging the poor kids. I swear it's not me, it's the liquor! Hopefully we haven't permanently scarred anyone. Oh, and for any of you planning to wear Obama masks, we have something special for you. It's top secret, but I can tell you this much...it's smells like dog poo. I'm just kidding or am I.


By now my kids know the drill. Get out there and get Mommy lots of candy and don't come back unitl you have gotten at least your weight in candy. I do allow them to come back and lessen their load, but that's all. I run a tough outfit. We look like Mafia Capos at our table in the driveway directing "business", while pretending to be mild mannered housewives.
When the "Don" is happy, everyone is happy, but that's just how I roll.

first time here- can I have an AMEN! I just saw that locally, there is a town here that has made it ILLEGAL for kids older than 8th grade to trick or treat- WHA? He's the one that can get the most? So this is the last year I can count on my oldest? He's got longer legs, walks at a faster pace, can cover more sq. footage! That just ain't right!

I totally blew it by only having one kid. She's aged out of the system, and I'm forced to buy my own candy. :(

What a great idea, stay home with some drinks and send the kids out to collect the goods~ why didn't I think of that years ago?? I've still got a few years of trick-or-treating left in my kids....now I know how to plan for next year :)
I'm still in awe of the fact that you live in a 1941 Cottage, Lucky Girl!!
