Halloween and BSM

I hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween. I cant wait to go look at every one's posts. We had a great Halloween this year. Hubby took Ella out trick or treating and I stayed home to pass out candy. Hubby even dressed up as Bob the Builder! Unfortunately, they rushed out of the house so quick that I didn't get a shot of him. I contemplated going out with them, but I felt like if everybody took their kid out, who would be home to pass out the candy to the other kids? After talking to a few people, apparently it is doable! I will definitely have to rethink my strategy next year!

Ella was so excited to trick or treat. She practiced for 3 hours before they actually went out.

She would pretend to ring the doorbell, come up to me with her bucket and say "Trick or treat!"

I say, "Oh, what a cute mouse you are!"

She says, "Thank you! Happy Halloween!"

Turns around and walks away. God I just want to gobble her up! ;0)


Candy, candy, candy! She could not wait to come home and show me how much candy she got. I couldnt wait to see what goodies were collected on their travels too! Her favorite is M&M's. I think because we use it as a treat sometimes when she goes to the bathroom by herself, the fact that she could hold a whole bag in her hand and eat it was just way to scrumptous of a reality.

Look at those gooey, chocolatey fingers......


I am calling this last photo my "Best Shot" because the two of them just sat on the floor eating candy for 10-15 minutes while I snapped away. Hopped up on sugar? Can I hear a HELL YA!


To see other BSM's, head over to Tracey's.

    We do take the kiddos out and just leave a basket of candy out. It normally doesn't take too long, but this year the candy was definitely gone when we got back. Good thing we kept some back!

  17. Please pay no attention to the fact that it is Saturday and I am just getting to BSM this week...
