I will never let my children eat all the candy they collected for Halloween. Not even in two years time! I’ve heard of The Great Pumpkin who will come and take your candy and leave a toy in it’s place. I also love the idea of dropping it off at dentist offices that pay you for it and then send it off to the troops.
I’ve let my kids fill a ziplock bag with their must haves. The rest is going off to work with Daddy, to keep coworkers happy!
But first we are sorting and graphing with some of the candy.
What do you do with your candy? What are your rules?
While I’m asking questions, please help me. My BFF and I have a disagreement. I say Halloween like the first part of the word is my Uncle Hal’s name. So, Hal-o-ween. My BFF says it like you are walking down a Hall. So, Hall-o-ween. How do you say it? I have to tell you that finally one year we decided we’d look it up and whoever was wrong would change how they said it. The dictionary showed it both ways! Though, on Modern Family the other night they said it like you are walking down a hall.
PS Don’t forget to save your candy corn to make edible Thanksgiving Turkeys. I’ll show you how I make mine later this month. I seem to always forget to save my candy corn, and it’s darn near impossible to find candy corn around Thanksgiving! ;)
