Allie's Halloween Habit

Allie has but one goal every year for Trick or Treating: to get more pieces of candy than the year prior. As you can imagine, it gets tougher every year.

Allie LOVES Halloween. She loves scary movies and stories, she loves costumes, parties, getting candy, decorating. You name it, if it's Halloweenish, Allie loves it!

Todd and I told her, when she was 11, that that would be her last year of trick or treating, since she'd really be too old to T-or-T after that. She cried. She's 14 and still Trick or Treats every year.

She even asked me if she could borrow Bryce and take HIM with HER when she really is too old to go on the candy expedition. Teehehe.

Here she is counting and categorizing her loot, circa 2006 (this was only about a week and a half after she was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes [which is an auto-immune disease and NOT caused by eating sugar!])

In the background is the pogo stick that I think saved her from DKA (Diabetic Keto Acidosis).

Ah October, Halloween Trick or Treating we used to put our candy in rows, count it and play candy store with it and ask money for it. Asking our parents or anyone to purchase it.
