This is my daughter back when she was younger and went trick or treating. She was a Southern bell that year and I have to say I think this was probably one of my favorite costumes that she picked out. She was so cute!
Now take a look at that pumpkin that held the candy. We would spend at least 2-3 hours trick or treating and some years we had to come back home, grab a snack, get a drink, dump out the candy she already had because the pumpkin head was full and head back out for more. Now I could only last out there for a maximum of 3 hours and she knew that so she went to as many doors as possible in 3 hours and many time we filled that pumpkin head up two times. That's a lot of candy let me tell you.
Her father and I would raid the candy bowl after she went to sleep and she was none the wiser. lol And then she got older and wised up to what we did.
When she was 11 years old she brought out the big candy bowl that we usually put all the candy in after we checked it and then she also brought out a grocery sack and told us that we could have any of the candy in the bowl but the stuff in the sack she wanted for herself. LOL
Now you might think we got mad, we didn't. It took a set of
balls courage to tell us that and we thought it was kinda funny actually after raiding her candy bowl for years.
And now with my daughter being pregnant I get to watch her over the next few years stealing her own kids candy and one day looking at her and telling her that he's keeping the good stuff for himself. lol
Ah, the circle of life.
