I love that cartoon because that is how I used to feel the day after Halloween when I was a kid. Unfortunately for my kids I am not as cool as my Mom was when it comes to Halloween candy. There is a limit to how much candy they can have. So because of this I have the annual issue of tons of left over candy. Well this year I was smarter. I actually had a time limit of how long the kids went trick or treating.
This is what they came home with:
They both collected enough candy to fit into a gallon sized zip bag and that shall be rationed at a decent pace. I was happy because it wasn’t tons of candy, they were happy because they went trick-or-treating and came home with something. It was truly a win-win situation. I know there are those of you that have a lot of candy at home and don’t want your kids to eat it all, so I decided to share this web article I found 15 Ways to Use Leftover Halloween Candy. I read through this article and there are some really great ideas that the kids would love to get involved in sharing their Halloween stash with others (and maybe get a great prize on top of the joy of sharing with others).
Before the trick-or treating happened we had pumpkin carving. My husband handles this because he has major carving skills. The girls picked HUGE pumpkins this year as seen in my last post Birthday, Costumes and Pumpkins a Quick Palmer Weekend!
Well we have pictures on how the carving went from pumpkin to Kitty themed Jack-o-Lanterns.
My youngest daughter is funny to watch because there is so much interest and curiosity.
Yes that is my oldest in the background de-gutting her pumpkin in a dress…can we say girly girl?
Now the next two pictures are priceless to me because of the curiosity of my little one.
You know what is coming…I know you do!
I can say my youngest is willing to try anything!
Now I know you have seen the costumes but I actually was able to take more pictures with the costumes and the Jack-o-Lanterns.
When we made it home from our night on the town, I took pictures of the Jack-o-Lanterns in the dark.
And the kids made a Halloween Gingerbread House with Daddy!
So that is our Halloween at the Palmer House! I hope you enjoyed our post and got some good information as well.
In two days time I will be writing about why sleep is important when working freelance and how I did not make sleep my priority this week and what happened to me because of my choices.
I hope you stay tuned!
