Happy Halloween!

The kiddos had a fantastic time this year trick or treating.  Well, except for the part where the neighbors dog came bounding out of the house and scared the daylights out of them. Aside from that, they had a great time!

I lucked out big time this year since both girls just wanted to wear dress-up clothes that we already had. Bonus! I didn't have to buy costumes.

Let me introduce you to Alice (in Wonderland) and Barbie from the "Barbie in Paris" movie...

Ready for the masses
In years past we've just gone to maybe 6 houses and then headed home. This year they were really into it and we circled the whole block. Unfortunately that meant we weren't home to greet the big crowds and now we have too much candy left over but hey, they had fun.

Have you noticed more people choosing to give away non-edible items this year?  That made me happy. We got stickers, play dough, pencils,  Beanie Babies, and even a tooth brush!
I won't be giving away Beanie Babies next year but I can promise you one thing. I'm not giving candy. There's too much of it and who lets their kids eat all that crap anyway?
I promise not to be the creepy lady who gives out apples or popcorn balls, but I will be finding something cool to give away besides sugar.

Happy Halloween!

Totally loved the idea of NOT giving candies for Halloween! Hate the idea of my kids having a sugar rush followed by a sugar crush!

Giving out other stuff for Halloween? That's such a cool idea!!! I am totally going to borrow that next year! Thanks Ronda!
