Give Me Something Good To Eat.


Last night was trick or treat in our area. I think it's a wee bit strange, considering all Pittsburgh trick or treats are on Saturday, but oh well. Maybe we can go to two! More candy for me to pretend isn't there.

Rose and Olivia are way too cool for me and had planned to go with their daddy. When he came to pick them up Maxine showed her true colors and turned on me as well. Silly girls. They have no idea how much fun Jeremiah and I are....

So that left us alone with Elijah once again. Our little baby boy. I did snap a few photos of the turncoat Maxine Jane before she left.






As we walked around our neighborhood I was a little saddened. Last night was the first trick or treat ever that I have not been with my Momma. The first time in 28 years.

When I was a kid she would dress me up and I would always leave from her house, go around our neighborhood. If my dad was working she would walk me around, constantly reminding me, "Say thank you, Erin."

When I got older I would hand out candy with her, marveling at how much candy she gave out, how sweet she was to the littlest trick or treaters. She'd even let me harrass the kids who were way too old to be trick or treating. I would quiz them on their ages and then deny them candy. She would laugh and then give them some anyways.

When I had my own kids we would go to my mom's house and my babies would wear the costumes that myself and my siblings wore. If my dad was off, or if I had a little baby my mom and I would hand out candy together once again.

I didn't even talk to my mom last night...

OK I'm over it. More photos!


The last photo was the only one I got of my older two. Olivia was struggling to get back to her candy the whole time Jeremiah was trying to take the photo. I'm holding on to her for dear life, you can see the strain on my face. haha.
