my halloween

or lack thereof.
So I feel a little anti-blogger. Bloggers love all things Halloween! I mean a lot of you really get into it! You decorate, carve amazing pumpkins, cook fancy meals, etc. I am impressed, really I am. I was the kid though who refused to help decorate pumpkins cause i thought the guts were just too gross to get over, much less all the fake eyeball blah-di-blah stuff.
We had a ton of fun this year though. We went to Boo at the Zoo, halloween at the park, and trick or treated in the neighborhood. All of those times Jackson was dressed up as an adorable lion. the cutest. i just forgot to take a picture for proof. (i've talked to my mom no less than 5 times since then promising to post pictures of him in his costume b/c i didn't have the courage to tell her I forgot. shhh....)
Actually though my favorite thing of the whole event was watching Jackson go through his candy. He'd pull one piece out of a time, ask me what it was, and was just thrilled with each treat. He went through his candy individually, without asking to open it, carefully examining each piece, asking what it was like, who in the family liked that kind the most, and counting how many of that kind he got at least 3 times. It was so fun to watch. What candy finally broke him that he just had to eat first? The first one was that black or orange wrapped candy that they only sell at halloween and then a peppermint. yeah. he's even too young to know that chocolate is the best stuff in there!
watching him made me resent greedy teenagers even more.
i was a greedy teenager for too long.
