Spooky.. And a Presidential Election Prediction

Halloween is very popular around here… not with me, but with my children.  I ask them every year if they will let me buy their favorite candy and they can trick or treat at our front door.. and I will give them a bag full of their favorite candy.  Each year they give me that.. "what's wrong with you?" look.  My dream Halloween night would be taking down the decorations and putting up the Christmas decorations.. maybe a cheese ball, some crackers.. a little punch… But my kids they want to go out in the cold Kansas air and beg strangers for candy. 😉

Here are the monkey's…

#5 loves Star Wars.  He was one of the Skywalkers.. maybe Anikin?

Fear the Jedi… You will. (see what I did there? A little Yoda joke)

These girls were dressed up as partners on the Amazing Race.

and they are tired from running…

This is #4.. He was a voting booth.

You might know I recycled this idea.. HERE

Which box do you think was heavier?  Romney or Obama?

Obama's box was almost 2lbs

Romney's box was almost 2lbs.

So we counted the candy.. Mitt had 30 pieces and Obama had 35 pieces.. making Barack the un-official winner of the Halloween Candy election.

Hey Mr President! We have a Heart Shape Potato too

Last night during the season premier of CSI Miami, there was a promo for David Letterman’s show. It showed a little teaser with President Obama and a heart shape potato.

#3 heard this promo and ran to take this photo of one of our potatoes.

You can see from the the first photo that the potato the president is holding.. it is quite a bit smaller

than our potato. #3 is pretty sure we should have been there giving the president our potato.

I’m not sure why I am blogging about potatoes, The President of the United States and David Letterman.. but it seemed like a good subject when I started.
