Jon Gosselin was snapped arriving at LAX airport in Los Angeles Wednesday, enjoying his first post-flight cigarette while telling reporters he wasn't going to take his kids out trick-or-treating for Halloween Saturday because he "doesn’t have custody."
Halloween isn't the only event Jon's left out in the cold on, in his first post-split holiday season.
"On Christmas, I'll see my kids during the day for a couple of hours," he recently told ParentDish.com.
Coincidentally, Kate Gosselin has been on the West Coast this week as well, as she took part in a women's conference that also included guests such as Patrick Swayze's widow, Lisa Niemi, and California's first lady, Maria Shriver.
So with the parents almost 2,700 miles away from their kin, we have to wonder -- who's watching the eight kids? Thank goodness for nannies.
