Trick or Treat- that is the question...

Dear gawd, what a decision I must make...

Do I take the kiddos trick or treating?
I mean, they will only be 17 months old. If I go door to door, the neighbors will know that the kids aren't eating the candy. I will look like a candy pimp.
(insert visual of me hiding in the closet with empty Smartie wrappers at my feet and Reese Cup remnants around my mouth)
But I have to show them off in their costumes. After all, as Dena and I discussed today, there is only a small window of opportunity to dress them in cute furry animal costumes before they want to pick out their own.
I just won't eat the candy. I will take it to work. Well, except maybe the Milky Ways...or the Almond Joys, definetely not the Almond Joys...well, better keep the Lifesavers too....ok, I promise to take the crappy peanut butter chewy candy in to work.
Last Halloween...

must be nice having those pics...Tanner wouldn't let me anywhere near him with the costume I bought for him. Let's hope this year goes a little better.

I say take them to a couple of houses. The neighbors will want to see them, even if they won't eat the candy.
When my kids got old enough to protest if I took some of their candy, I was not above offering them a dime for each piece of chocolate - maybe 20 cents for the Snickers. So take advantage of this phase when you can steal their candy easily.

Of course you must go trick or treating. I did when they were that little and Greg and I ate all the candy!

I say take them trick-or-treating! It sounds like fun to show them off :)

I love all the little costumes from last year. My favorite is the three peas in a pod theme
