The day after…..

Typically we get around 150-200 kids who come to our house on Halloween.  It may seem like a lot but when you consider that most of them come in groups and some of the groups are quite large, it really doesn’t take that long to add up.

This year the younger ones started around 6:45 and by 7:30 the older kids started coming and they came in droves until around 8:30 and from then until 8:45 we got a few more until we finally turned off our lights.  I’d say we got about 120 kids last night and gave out 5 huge bags of candy.

Hank helped give out candy while wearing his Chewbacca costume.  Boomer wanted absolutely nothing to do with giving away anything edible.  I’m pretty sure he was disgusted by the notion of it.

By 8:45 Hank was exhausted.

Cutest. Thing. Ever.

The worst part of Halloween for any adult I know is trying not to eat the candy.  Seriously.  I purposely bought candy that I don’t really care for in order to avoid the inevitable ‘grazing’ which for me, ultimately becomes a binge.  The problem is that MacGyver and I went to the store together over the weekend and when I mentioned I didn’t buy any Reeses Peanut Butter Cups he insisted we get some.  And then he pulled them out of the treat bucket last night and put them on our coffee table.

Now, imagine this little girl as an older woman with Reeses Peanut Butter Cups and this is an accurate representation of me last night….

I was so overjoyed this morning when I realized that all of the ‘good’ candy was gone…and then I saw this.

WHAT?  Where is this magical mystery machine? 

I’m gonna be really busy the next few days.  I have a lot of running to do….

Did you over indulge on Halloween candy?
