Too much of a good thing!!!

Does anyone have this much Halloween candy left???

I was *finally* able to get it all squeezed into one bowl this afternoon.

Here's a KitKat for perspective on just how BIG this bowl is!

It is never going to be gone....this is so bad...there is always a Kit Kat or Hershey Bar calling my name.

Good thing there are no Swedish Fish left. Can you believe that the boys ate those first because they were afraid that I was going to eat them all. What kind of mom do they think I am?!?! Hmmmmm.....probably the kind of mom that has eaten about 4 pounds of Swedish Fish over the last 2 months. Unfortunately, I've got an extra 5 pounds to show for it does THAT happen???

I think it is about time to start making this candy disappear...into the garbage, not my mouth, in case you were wondering. I wonder if my trick-or-treating pros will notice.

Do your kids ever get treats from their teacher? If so, send it to school.

OMG give me some of that.
Reeses PB cups please.
You ARE in the Chicagoland area, right?
Bring it to me. I'll take it off your hands.

We donated it the school candy drive. They oddly enough collect candy to send to the shelters to the poor people who have no food or dental care. Weird huh? But at least it isn't here calling my name!!

I am laughing so hard right now. Ella walked in when I was looking at this post and asked, "who's candy is all that!!" I told her, and she then asked, "how well do we know them?" Motives???

Kelly - I am ashamed to admit it, but I think I have more than you (but it depends on if you count the bags I got at Walgreens for 25 cents a week after Halloween).

I just took my big witches "caldron" (got for 25 cents too) down to the basement and put the rest in 2 1 gal ziplock bags and Stephen's is still upstairs. He likes to think I forgot about his candy, but I haven't. Its been my stash when I have a craving - I'm a terrible mom!!

I threw away 3 very full Target bags of candy the day of Halloween. I have the kids pick 10 pieces of candy each and throw the rest away. Otherwise, I'll eat it all and put on the 60 some pounds I lost. They still have some of their Halloween candy left.
