Why I love Halloween – Sorry Kids!

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Respect Realty LLC 200311024

I love Halloween and not just because I have to test candy to make sure it isn't dangerous. As all parents now the most dangerous candies are Butter Fingers, Chocolate Malt balls and Kit Kats.

But you also get the chance to have fun with the kids, even if they don't always like you taken pictures that you can use against them later. This is why I'm posting these pictures, so I can get them out there for the world to see before they can delete them from our hard drive.



I will update this blog after Halloween, but here are some great photos of the kids from the past few years.

Sorry Kids!

UPDATE: As promised here is a link to this years Halloween pics Kids had fun, but I had to take a lot of unsafe candy!

Todd - Donald Duck is likely to come back in her teenage years and mysteriously take revenge on you!  Those photos are too cute and you're right.  As a parent, it is my obligation to check the Butterfingers first...a parent can never be too careful, you know? LOL

Halloween is my favorite holiday also. One disadvantage to living in an adult community is no trick or treaters. BTW, to keep them safe, don't forget the Three Musketeers bars also.

Todd, your kids are so cute. I love Halloween too :) My kids hide their candy from their dad and me because we're such good candy testers. I love the Donald Duck costume (go figure!) Happy Halloween!!!!!
