Piper...was concerned all night, that she would get "sugar bugs" if she ate to much candy..and at some point..she declared that her teeth hurt...and she let us all know..that the moon tonight..was a quarter moon. It wasn't. Adler screaming, I want to go home..Piper saying NO..it's treatin' time...on we went...
Raygan and Sayler stayed a few houses ahead of us..wanting to look "cool"..appearing that they were on their own..but at the same time..still afraid to get to far from me...running ahead, but always looking back..two cool chicks..trickin' for candy..all "alone"....
I was freezing..it was windy..I kept eating Snicker's..
The oddest event of the evening came when the girls came running to me...waving a twenty dollar bill..they told me that the house had run out of candy, so they were giving away twenties...what the?? I asked which house it was...because I was debating making them return it..I mean really, how bizarre is that? But they didn't remember which house it was..hmmmm?!
We headed home..Adler broke into his pixy stick..he didn't like it..Piper was screaming that her teeth hurt..and the girls poured their stash out and started the trade-off...
They had a blast..way too much candy...
Aching feet, sugar bugs, golf carts, quarter moons, pixy sticks, freezing, twenty dollar bills...
My kids, smiling faces...lovin life...on Halloween night~!

And, I tried the Vegemite this morning..like Renee said...on hot buttered toast..and Um..not good~! Can definitely say this WILL.NOT become part of my morning routine..and this is somewhat funny..and somewhat sad all at the same time...but, when the box came...My husband was looking through and grabbed the Vegemite....and started to sing the Men at Work song..."I come from a land Down Under".. well he blurts out the lyrics...
"Buying bread from a man in Brussels
He was six foot four and full of muscles
I said, "Do you speak-a my language?"
He just smiled and gave me a Vegemite sandwich"
OMgosh..I just got it..the "Vegemite sanwich part"...for years..I've always thought they said.."he just smiled and gave me a "bit of my sandwich" I've been singing it this way since my tween days..never knew what Vegemite was..and those words seemed to make sense..so, I went with it...SO funny..I've been enlightened..at the age of 36..I've got the words now!
Alright..the photos...Took this little lovely out a couple of weeks ago..had the best time...raining off and on, covered in mud by sessions end, lost two lens caps and locked my keys in the car...mama wanted mostly moody shots...we snuck some giggles in anyway..
So..not sure what happened here...but I added this post..and BAM..all of my sidebar stuff, got bumped to the bottom of the page..UGH~! It's way too late, and I'm way too bagged for me to figure this out now..but just so you know..I will lay in bed tonight and worry....stuff like this drives me...I know, I know...it's a sickness...Can't wait for my new blog-O-rama...have someone working on one for me as I type...Yay me~!

Day after day, my kids asked...did it come yet..and according to her, hers did the same..Finally..the box arrived..it was better than Christmas...they COULD.NOT.WAIT!
Just snapped a few shots of them opening the box..SOOC of course..how I would have loved to spent an hour making them real pretty..but right now, it's just not going to happen...not stellar photography..but you can see the excitement on their faces..which is what it really is all about..
The Vegemite was SO funny...I knew what it was...but being that everything in the box was a sweet treat..Adler asumed that the Vegemite was too.. He popped it right into his mouth and took a squeeze..OMGosh..I was laughing so hard...
Thinking...Sayler's not loving it eihter...I talked with Renee today and she told us the proper way to eat Vegemite..on hot buttered toast...I'll give it a go in the morning..but thinking..hmmm...I'll let you know..
One of the things that Renee really wanted to try was a Twinkie...when we went to buy them..Sayler questioned me as to what a Twinkie was...because she had never had one either! We put a few in the box..and somehow...when her back was turned..her kids ate the Twinkies...all of them...she was so bummed! So Renee..I promise...soon, you'll get an entire box of Twinkies..all for you~!
Thanks so much for sending the stuff...Raygan was SO funny...putting all the little leftovers in little baggies..telling them...We'll never have this stuff again..so we need to pace ourselves...
From us to you...muwah...love you~!
