getting ready

Yesterday I heard about a great way to manage leftover Halloween candy. The parent I was talking to 'buys' the leftover candy from her kids after Halloween (and then it goes to work with her husband); everyone's happy.

What are your plans for Halloween? We plan to trick or treat at neighborhood businesses tonight, and at the homes of neighbors on Saturday. Abbott is going to be Anakin Skywalker. Cal has a shark costume and a Darth Vader costume; when he's dressed up a couple of times this past week he's worn a combination of these two. Alexi's Cat in the Hat hat has also ended up in the mix - we'll see what he decides to wear for trick-or-treating. I love his sense of style.

Happy Halloween to your little goblins! I use to let Katelyn kept half and buy the rest off her and do the same send it to work. Then the half left I would but 3 in sandwich bag and that was her allotment for the day. It worked.

Unfortunately, we don't celebrate it here but I wanted to be part of it somehow; so I scheduled a post with some crafts we did for tomorrow.
Have fun with your 'trick-or-treaters'.

We just put the candy bags on the top shelf of the pantry and dole it out...piece by piece by piece. At some point, we'll toss the rest (usually after Christmas candy arrives).

We just trick-or-treat in our own neighborhood, but as most everyone here hands out big handfulls of candy....

And by the way, I've often wished to go out for a cup of coffee with you, too!

I am going to Costco today to pick out some great candy to give out on Saturday. The big Halloween party we were going to on Friday night got cancelled due to the son of the hosts contagious condition... so there are at least 50 people in Anchorage looking for Plan B for Friday night.... all for the best, no one wants to get sick. Happy Halloween to you and your munchkins!! xoxoxo

I love your owls. I can guess that both your Artists made them. Happy Halloween to you and your family.
Are you going to be a Queen this year?

Everyone should also know about the Halloween Fairy. She comes the night of Halloween, and leaves little gifts in proportion to how much candy the children have left her as an offering. Clever, no?

I'm new to your blog--just stumbled across it a few nights ago for the first time. I didn't bookmark it then, but I should have. I remembered your owls, and I spent an hour tonight trying to find your site again so that I could see them and try to make them with my own kiddos. Such cuteness! Thanks for inspiring me!
