Show me the candy!

We could not have asked for a more perfect Halloween. Sunny, sixty degrees, three healthy children, great costumes (according to the kids)...it made for a memorable night.

Elijah was a "dead Bengal's player", since this season was a killer:

Isabel made a beautiful "Ninja princess". Mamaw Kay bought this costume for her, and she got so many compliments, I think she may decide to wear it again next year. (Money saver for mom!)
Although Mamaw bought a Batman costume for Gabe, he decided at the last minute that what he really wanted to be was a red Power Ranger. This costume was Elijah's, like, five years ago. I love me some hand-me-downs!

Okay, see if you can guess what these boys are supposed to be...
It took me a minute to figure it out, but when I did, I begged them to pose for my blog. I'm not sure they even know what a blog is, but they agreed to it anyway.

Do you know yet?







They are "chick magnets"! Check out the boy on the left. See anything interesting, say, in the nether regions? I was cracking up at the ingenuity of these teens. Vulgar, maybe...creative, definitely!
After 30 minutes of trick-or-treating, Gabe was ready to park his butt at Mamaw's house and help pass out candy. I couldn't believe he was so worn out so quickly. He's usually my ball of energy.
Elijah by far got the most candy, which is pretty ironic, since he only likes gummy candy and Sweet Tarts. Isabel and Daddy reaped the benefits, taking all the stuff that Elijah didn't want.

Isabel, my chocoholic, was in seventh heaven with her Hershey's stash:

And what did Gabe want to eat after all that hard work? Why, turkey and cheese, of course. I don't think he even ate one piece of candy the whole night. I know, I know, my children are weird. They come by it honestly; I am not a big sweets eater, either. This candy will sit on our counter, then get moved to our candy drawer, where I will end up pitching it when Easter comes around. Unless the neighbor kids eat it all; they all know exactly where our snack drawer is!

So, I'm curious...how many people actually get their kids' candy x-rayed? A local dentist was offering this service for free, but I didn't do it. I did inspect all the candy, and we only trick-or-treated in our neighborhood, which is fairly "safe". No razor blades, hypodermic needles or dots of LSD noted. Maybe I'm just too naive and trusting...
In any case, it was a Happy Halloween here in Ohio, and I hope it was for y'all, as well.
Stay tuned for Columbus birthday photos...

Love the costumes. Especially Isabel's. I thought she might have been a geisha girl at first. I miss those trick or treating days. Meagan is too old for it now. Although she did dress up and pass out candy.

A great costume idea on saw on the Bonnie Hunt show, dress a boy up as Hugh Hefner. I thought that was hilarious!!

I love Elijah's costume! I think it turned out really cool looking!

Yes, those guys with the "chick magnet" costume's had worked hard on placing their barbies in just the right spot! Good Lord!

Oh, they are all adorable! I loved Elijah's costume and Isabel was as beautiful as always and as for Gabe, well he is just to darn cute. Thanks for posting the pictures. I love to see my grand-babies. Love, Mom

Great costumes on your kids!!!

I love the "chick magnets." At my dad's house two parents came to the door dressed as Joe the Plumber and Sarah Palin. Hilarious.

Another great idea? Tape Smarties candies to your pants. Then you can go as a "Smartie Pants."

HA!

They are cute! Isabel especially, sorry guys.

Love the chick magnets. I knew what they were! Crazy kids.

I got my tickets ordered!!!! and I got my free download too! and no I have not started packing yet. I will not do it until Thursday night. Not OCD there.

If you want, you can send all the 'extra' candy our way. Jeff is very upset with the turn out of the candy that Hayden got, apparently it is not enough. ;)

Very cute costumes btw.

That rob was beautiful. I would wear it all year long it looks like a rob.

I do not x-ray the candy but I do re-gift the undesirable items. I am all into recycling. We had a dentist that would give the kids a certain amount of money for all their halloween candy. I think he did that for one year and realized that the kids really enjoyed collecting all the good stuff rather than $2 bucks and a tooth brush.

Those boys....I loved that, so clever and wishful. I love to see what the teenagers come up with.

Oh the Chic magnets was priceless and very creative!

Looks like a fun night!

Chick magnet is funny--but--here is the prude in me, there is NO WAY my young teen would go out with a barbie's face on his peeps. NO WAY. Now I will resume being a vegan sex goddess. :)

Looks like so mcuh fun, i wish had Halloween in Australia! I'm going to make up for it at my Husband's Xmas Party where my husband and i are going to dress up like Hugh Hefner and a Playboy Bunny! Your kids looked great!

Kat said...

I wonder what the mothers of the chick magnets thought :-)

Your kids are adorable. And mine are like that too - they love the candy - but are over it rather quickly. And I usually still have some around Easter - because they end up with more around Thanksgiving...

My 5 yr old does not like chocolate... can you believe that? Sometimes I wonder if she's my flesh and blood...


The "chick magnet" guys are a hoot!
