We do the Halloween Fairy here. They put their pumpkins full of candy outside their bedroom doors, and in the morning, the Halloween fairy has replace their candy with a few pieces of organic candy & chocolate and some little stocking stuffer-ish toys. My kids love it. :) I love your kids' paper decorations. Too cute!PS. Hop on over and join my giveaway!
When my boys were small they got huge amounts of candy! The next morning, they got to pick their 10 favorites and the rest we bagged and brought to the soup kitchen. They were allowed to eat those 10 peices whenever and then it was done. We brought it the very next day so they could understand that so many don't get to trick or treat. Plus 10 seemed like a lot of candy when thye could decide how it was eaten. Our dentist always said "Better to eat 10 pieces in one day, than 1 piece for 10 days." Good luck and have fun!! Our trick or treating days are over , but the great memories and costume pictures live on......BTW- The boys still tell about giving the candy to the soup kitchen, so they must have learned more than I thought!
CUTE! Thanks for reminding me that I need to get on the ball finishing Scout's costume - 3 days! YIKES!
Just wondering where the cute B O O decoration came from.....don't tell me you made it (in all your spare time) :)
I just posted a comment... then figured I would just tell you when I saw you! No need to bring more attention to it... if you know what I mean!! I love the BOO decoration and the artwork!!
I am so new to the blog world that I don't know the proper etiquette to "replying" to a comment left on my blog! So I figured that you are an old pro and can tell me how you do it....do you go back to the person's blog and comment (as I am doing); or do you post a reply on your own blog; or do you privately email them???? Please advise. Regarding my D90 - I got the 18-105 mm VR lens and already have the 50mm 1 - 1.8 D lens as well as the 55 - 200 mm VR....I was wondering which one you use the most on a daily basis.....I haven't gotten off the auto but hope to figure out manual soon. If you read my blog, you will see why I haven't had time to explore my new play toy. But I am pretty sure that I don't need to tell you about being busy! Also, one more quick question ~ do you flip the lens to A or M when you go to manual mode on camera? Have you ever checked out www.kenrockwell.com? He will go step by step through every and I mean every button and setting on your camera. I did this for my D80 and set it how he suggested and the pics were night and day....when I can come up for air, I will do this with the D90. He has specific settings and recommendations for all Nikons from the D40 to the top of the line. By the way, he is a huge fan of D90 and says the top of the lines are a waste of money. (he is a Nikon lover!). I know you are busy but if you could answer all these rambling questions, I would really appreciate it. If I discover anything earth shattering as I do my research, I will report back (when you tell me how I should do this with proper blogging etiquette!
Have you heard of the Switch Witch? Kind of like the fairy mentioned above, the switch witch comes late at night to switch candy for toys. Can't remember where I read it but there was a whole story associated with it. Maybe try googling. :)
I just said to my husband the other night, as my kids were running around from their sugar high... "Seriously, like youthful and energetic kids REALLY need candy?!"Aye yie yie.
Your previous comments had some great ideas about keeping the kids from eating candy! The switch witch - love it! I am so glad I read that comment :) I love the kids' paper decorations. I am that mom - you know, the one who doesn't throw out anything the kids make. I know it will stop at some point but for now our house will continue to be taken over by paper creations...any I wouldn't have it any other way! Blessings to you on this fun holiday weekend! xoxo, Kelly
