Reflections on Halloween

• Halloween is more fun when you have kids, even if your kids are too young to get it.
• Babies look adorable when dressed like food.
• Babies also look adorable when dressed like sea life.
• Really, babies just look adorable in costume.
• It is possible to eat too much candy at the office Halloween party.
• It is possible to not learn one's lesson and subsequently eat too much leftover candy at the office the next day.
• It is possible to eat four slices of pizza while balancing a twin on each knee.
• Your own kids are always the cutest kids in the room.
• When your house has a lot of stairs leading to the front door, you don't get a lot of trick-or-treaters. In fact, you get zero. Lazy kids!
• When you don't get any trick-or-treaters, you end up eating yet more candy.
• It is possible to get sick of candy.

I think I need to go on a cleansing diet of nothing but fruit and veggies for a few days. We had a great Halloween.

They look FABULOUS!! I love the peapod, they didn't have one big enough for Isabel (11 months old now) The shark is great too.

On the candy, we've adopted a marine in Anbar province and will be sending him all the candy he can eat! (I'm not a supporter of the war, but I am a supporter of our troops) I worry that makes me some type of liberal hypocrite but it is what it is. My children enjoy making the soldier cards, etc.

We had lazy kids too, we have a long driveway, and we had good candy too! So not Weight Watchers friendly.
