Classic Post Trick or Treat Pumpkin Shake

I heard from a reliable source that The Candy Fairy was going to pay us a visit tonight in exchange for all but a few select pieces of candy. Thanks to little legs who were ready to head home after about a half hour, a couple of grown men who put a serious dent in the T or T loot (and a certain mother who shall remain nameless but did enjoy a mini kit kat bar) – the stash for The Candy Fairy is pretty pathetic. They opted to forgo handing over the last of their goods for a toy from The Candy Fairy in the morning. I guess the stuffed unicorns will have to wait in toy purgatory until Christmas.

Oooo look! Crayons and Mad Libs? Now that’s more like it.

That's More Like It

For our trick or treaters – raisins, pennies, toothbrushes and hummus were all considered. I figured a house without eggs on the siding would probably sell faster. Granola bars? Deal.

Mad Libs a la Ava anyone? Busted.

Now it’s Mama’s turn to Trick or Treat!

Trick or Treat

Give me something good to eat!

Now We're Talking

Dang, I totally should have passed out sweet potatoes to our trick or treaters! That would have been easy. I guess there’s always next year.

    Happy Halloween my dear! :)

  • Holly says:

    HAPPY HALLOWEEN! i will come trick or treat at your doorstep anyday :)

  • Bernadette says:

    It looks like a fun time was had by all! Now how do I get that Treat Fairy to come take all this candy off my hands? I think I bought way too much and my big kids are thinking they hit the jackpot!


  • Liz says:

    Chewy bars seem like a good compromise for the trick or treaters…quarters would have been good! If I were a kid trick or treating I would totally love quarters! Sweet potatoes are a great treat for you too. Yum!!

  • maria says:

    Halloween is one of the few occasions when I think it would be fun to have kids. Maybe someday. We’ll see.

    I would have hated you as a kid for giving me a granola bar, but man oh man would I love you now!

  • Erica says:

    If you were passing out sweet potatoes..I would have def made the trip to your house :) Glad ya’ll had fun. Love the “dog father” costume. HILARIOUS

  • Ironically after what feels like a week of H’Ween, my kid has eaten like 4 pieces of candy. She’s not that into it, but she’s also not even 3. Candy is kept up high in the pantry and she doesnt even know (or care)/remember that it’s there. Love the candy fairy concept. I think that’s what mom’s do….we dont just let em have carte blanche eating all the candy they want. Seriously,do people allow that?! Great pics :)

  • Cindy says:

    We have like 10 lbs of chocolate crap to pass out or eat…but JJ had not one piece!
    I totally forgot to snap a pic of the “treat” patti had for him…a bag of plantain chips from Trader Joes! He LOVED them!

    we didn’t technically corrupt one child this year (but we might have)…and after our night of fun we still have 9 lbs and 15 oz of candy left.

    we could have done worse!

    Ali…trade the candy for a pound of YAMS! MMMMMMMMMM i’ll take a few!
    love love love your crew’s costumes! so very fun
    I was an Aikido person! just for moral support!

    The girls looks so stinkin’ CUTE!

    I guess well see what next year brings! We had more fun carving punkins than trick or treating!
    what a fun night!

  • Jennifer says:

    Awww…looks like you guys had a lot of fun.

    We got some of those granola bars, too, this year. Must be something new out.

  • Erin says:

    They look so cute waiting at the doors, so patiently! I love the Dog Father too. Hilarious!

  • Erika says:

    Very cute girls! And glad you got some treats too.

  • Tay says:

    Very cute costumes! We used to do the same thing as the Candy Fairy, but our was the “Great Pumpkin”. He’d bring us a treat and exchange our candy. But then our mom got to eat it all. Laaaaame.

  • Mama Pea says:

    Unicorn purgatory! I wonder if that’s anything like Unicorn School…because Gigi is teaching her new friend to read right now.

  • Looks like a really fun halloween : )

    (Especially since it included sweet potato fries 😉
