Halloween 2015 & The Switch Witch

It’s always a three-ring circus around here, and this year we decided to showcase that for Halloween!

Meet the circus strong man, the clown, and the elephant!

Our area doesn’t do trick-or-treating on weekends, so it was on Thursday here.

Evelyn wasn’t too sure about her elephant head at first, but once she got into walking up and down driveways to get candy, she forgot about trying to rip it off her head.  It was cold out though, and she has an ear infection, so I brought her back home after a couple blocks.

Trenton, Charlotte, and Jarrod stayed out the whole two hours though!  Last year we only did one hour, so we had double the amount of candy this year.  Yikes!

We certainly do not need that much candy in our house, so tonight we are getting a visit from the Switch Witch.  I found this idea on Pinterest, and Trenton is super excited about it.  Charlotte took some convincing though.  First because she didn’t want to get rid of her candy – which is kind of surprising since she’s not my sweets lover.  Then once she got over that, went through her bag, picked out a few favorites, and put the rest in the bag for the Switch Witch, she decided that she was scared to have a witch in the house – even though I told her that the Switch Witch is actually the Tooth Fairy’s sister.  So instead of Charlotte putting her bag on her bed, she’s leaving it downstairs on the table.

Hopefully the kids will like what they get from the Switch Witch and we can start doing this every year.  Because I can’t even imagine how much candy we’ll wind up with when all four kids are trick-or-treating!
