Candy goodness


We survived Halloween. The kids were all loaded up with sugar, even Seth had some, and sent off to bed. I truly love Halloween. Maybe it's the found memories of stuffing my face with candy when I was a kid but whatever the reason, I love it. So many of our neighbors really get into the spirit of the holiday and decorate their houses and come out in costume.

The Fall Festival went off today without a hitch. We got our pretend pumpkin patch spread out in the soccer field and got all the decorations done in about an hour. Not to shabby. I went back home and got Dan and Seth so they could see the costume parade. There were so many cute costumes but by far Dan and I liked one the best. A girl had on fat suit on and she was carrying a sign that said "Lost Puppy". When she walked by you could see her lost puppy stuck in her butt checks! So funny!

After all the kids had lunch they all got to come out and get their own pumpkin to take home with them. Some kids searched for the largest they could find, some the smallest, and a select few had to be yelled at to not kick or drop the pumpkins.

Once all the grades had come through we were left with quite a few little pumpkins, close to 40 I'd say. We kindly dropped them off in the teachers lounge. I ended up taking home a few corn stalks and bales of hay. It was garbage now or garbage when I get some more use out of them.... hmmm.

This evening we had so many trick of treaters come by that Dan had to get more candy. We went through 9 bags! Amazing. There were kids everywhere.

Well, it was a successful and long day. I am rather tired but I had a good time. I hope you all had a great Halloween. Here are a few more pictures of the costumes. Even I was dressed up today.
Yes Susan, I have worn this farmer costume before.

You look so cute! So do the kids... I love Halloween too... Glad you guys had a good one!
We went through 3 bags of candy and would have gone through more but we live in the middle of nowhere and didn't get a chance to replinish our supplies... Oh well. Next year we'll plan better!

How wonderful! The kids looked great - you're doing such a fine job of giving your kids great memories. We had more kids than we've ever had - we got hardly any in either Cheyenne or Baltimore. It seemed city kids were coming down to safer neighborhoods, which is OK. I loved Halloween as a small child because my dad would take me trick-or-treating, and that was the treat for me - to be with my dad. I remember taking you all trick-or-treating in Denver and carrying someone's little sister on my shoulders - Cynthia's? Anyway, it was fun.

It is always good to have a costume you can pull together. We almost went through all of our candy, but we only had 2 bags & I was giving out like 4 pieces to each kid so there wouldn't be leftovers :)

Glad you all had a good day!
