Candy.... Be gone!!

I gave the kids a couple of days to enjoy their candy! I am not at all blind to the fact that when they enjoy their candy, I join in as well. So, last night I told them that whoever left their candy on the couch that night would find a present from the Great pumpkin in the morning! A couple of older children (I won't mention names) were a little skeptical of the Great Pumpkin so they were quick to give present suggestions! Very funny - to which I always say - "Those who don't believe - don't receive!" That gets them every time!
I am happy to report that they all took the bait and now
I am only hoping that the Great Pumpkin has the willpower to truly be rid of the candy - except for maybe the Twix, Snickers, and Butterfingers.
Can you blame her?

Bailey left the funniest note to the Pumpkin - she wasn't quite sure how to spell pumpkin so it came out Puking! We got quite a laugh!
