Caution: Cute Kids Ahead

The part of Halloween I like is the free candy. Now, I much more of an Easter Candy guy. If you were around this Easter, you know that I made a crazy table keeping track of the number of Cadbury Eggs and Bags of mini eggs that I consumed and the caloric intake of said candy. If you missed it, I think people checked my blog more for that than the quality content that I offer on an (almost) daily basis… cough, cough.

So, with ol’ arsenic in the apple scare or razor blades (although the chemical content of produce sprayed with pesticides is scary enough)… you really need to watch what you kids consume or where the candy originates. Now, we are the Crystal Meth. HQ for the SouthEast region of the United States, but Meth-Heads are too busy trying to find the next tweak to care about kid’s candy. So the incidents of candy tampering around here are low, if even reported.

Our Church has a Trunk or Treat event that the hold for the children in the parking lot. Although, I have never gotten a Trunk… some people decorate their trunk (there’s a contest) and the kids go trick-or-treating to each vehicle and get their loot that way. Safe for the kids and a social event for the adults. They do it in the afternoon, before it gets dark and too boot, they have a big spread of Hotdogs, chili, deserts for everyone…

Last year Eric the Elder didn’t have a clue. Well, he did, but he didn’t capitalize on the free candy. Ryan just sat in the stroller and drooled. It was also a huge event to get The Elder in a costume. We had to get a pumpkin sweatshirt/pant outfit and dreaded what this year was going to bring.

When the costumes first came out, we bought a cow sweatsuit outfit.Thinking that this wouldn’t be too bad. when it came time to get him in it, I was surprised because he went right to it… He put on the pants… no problems…kids.

So we made a EAT MOR CHIKIN sign and he was happy to be a Chik-Fil-A cow… MOooooooooooo. We even got him to Say… “Trick or Treat, Eat More Chicken!” Here is Eat in Full Costume attire:

Ryan was a little easier to handle… “Here, you are wearing this…”

Now in the household, I am the official Candy Auditor… all candy must pass by me and a tax is collected at my discretion… Sometimes I rule with a Iron Chocolate Hand.

  5. aaawwww…. soooo cute!!! don’t ya just want to hug them.

    I just love cows! I collect cows…

    It’s cute but not a practical trick or treat bag, more of a sit on the counter candy holder.

    It’s extremely convenient. plus, you know alot of the people there.

    Jen used to collect cows… perhaps if we still have some, I can send them to you.

    I sure hope they are runners… the genetics are against them for most of the other sports.

    But we’ll see if they dig running as much as their old man…

    I totally cracked up with Eric the Elder’s costume. First time I had Chick-fil-a was in FL. Don’t have them where I grew up. I was so happy that they had one here in CO. But it was in the mall. I don’t GO to the mall. But then they built a freestanding one….woooohoooo.

    Anyway…I bet next year you are gonna do something scary with your ‘trunk’.
    Heheheee….I’m so perverted….
    Actually I didn’t mean it that way but after I read it I started to giggle.

    Awwww poor dead ‘possom.

    Oh, crap, I didn’t mail the coke rewards but I will email you the codes in just a few. I just put it on my ‘Ta-Da’ to do lists too, as a matter of fact….ya know, to mail it to you.
    (I’ve been up since 0230, upset stomach.)
    So…how long ya gonna be gone???

    Hope your tummy is feeling better… Since you said that you were going to send them, not like I am going to get any mail in Samoa though… I will put you in the running.

    I am sure the nerd factor would have been quite high given their parents…

    Chick-Fil-A is a Fast Food chain that revolve around Chicken Breast meat… either nuggets or grilled breats… their signature is that they put a pickle on the sandwich. They are quite good and with a christian foundation, they are always closed on Sunday.
