What is with lazy ass parents shadowing their kids in cars? And what’s with their lazy ass kids GETTING IN THE CAR to be DRIVEN 4 houses away, past the houses with no lights on? It’s not like it’s 30 and snowing here, which still wouldn’t cut it as an excuse. I froze and got snowed on to earn my candy a few times, and it just made it taste better damnit.

Creepiest thing we saw all night: Some dude strolled up to ask and ask if we had gotten a lot of candy. “We just got started,” I replied. “Yeah. I’m out trick or treating for my niece. She’s 3. Her Mom doesn’t trust me alone with her at night.” Ohhhkay. Fortunately he didn’t hang around.

Kids went as “Earth” and “Woody” from Toy Story. The earth costume was an idea from a parenting magazine we had picked up, and Jane loved it. The kid in the picture had brown hair, which would have made a world of difference. Green hair spray in blond hair doesn’t exactly scream “grass”. But she loved it and it was awesome, as was Isaac.
