The Aftermath...

What do you get when you have 5 kids going trick or treating multiple times?
20 lbs of candy.
Seriously, 20 lbs. And that is after 5 days of eating the candy.
Thank goodness for my rec center pass. I am going to need all the exercise I can get.

20 lbs!!!! That's crazy.

I don't know what to say besides...Whoa!

And BTW, were you serious about wondering if I'd be bugged if you did a "thankful" thing this month like me? Of course I wouldn't care and it's not like Thanksgiving if only for me to celebrate. I'd love to see what you're thankful for.

And what's the scoop with "maybe a new job possibility"?

Wow! You have enough there to last until next Halloween! You'll never have to buy candy again!

Oh man, I am glad that bowl isn't anywhere near me. I have no self control! Poor Alex he doesn't even know where his candy went!

They say old hard candy is a good food storage item.

Okay so the bowl looks so much bigger in person. Oakley was sitting by it yesterday and it's as big as she is! I don't know what I would do if I had all that candy in my house...oh wait, yes I do. I'd eat it all! Hope you're stronger then I would be.

That is a ton. I usually take candy out of my kids bags and save it for Christmas. This year we didn't get enough to do that but I don't think you will have a problem!!

I may gag.

Sweet haul. I can't believe you didn't come to our house though. Tear. Jk. I am surprised you took all 5 kids out. Quinn took the twins to your house and they were sad you weren't home. Oh well there's always next year.

you should go walking around your neighborhood with your kids and trick or treat the candy back.
