We stopped at the store before we got home (all the kids were sleeping so I was able to run in) and I foudn a dora mermaid doll, a mega blocks iretruck and some Blendy Pens that Maia had been wanting.

We put 15 pieces of candy into each girls bag and set the bag and the gift at their place at the dining room table. I also wrote a colorful fairy note thanking them and mentioned hearing Madison and Sage make a wish and that silly Maia fell asleep before wishing but that she remembered hearing Maia make a wish a long time ago for the blendy pens and that she hoped Maia still wanted them.

Maia woke up first and it was so cool because she was so excited to see that Madison got a fire truck like she wanted that she didn't even look to see what she got for a minute or two.

They carry blendy pens in the store somewhere? Where? my DS has been wanting those

Yay! I'm glad so many like the Halloween Fairy! The kids love the toys she left for them. Now to try to sneak some of the candy they have left, so I don't hear "Can I have a piece of candy?" every 5 min!

I DID succeed in getting my kids to trade costumes for candy...I'm a party-pooper, I know, but I don't like to do fairies or Santa or Easter bunny (I have strong feelings that are non-religious and probably better off in a different forum, I think).

I actually had to have the costumes in front of them, tempting them. They took one look and willingly parted with all but 10 pieces of candy for Bumblebee Transformer and pretty princess outfits.

I do not do Santa or Easter bunny (they will have it at their other parents houses though) but as we do believe in the fairies and the fey I do not have such a hard time pretending to be a fairy for them

It seems, if I remember, from last year that a few days post halloween we were able to slowly throw away candy a little at a time. The kids memory of how much they have begins to fade after a couple days and they don't notice it so much that way.
Yup! That's what happens in our house too.

I set the timer for an hour after each piece that they eat then I eventually turn the timer off so that it doesn't ring. So far Jayson's memory of the candy is waning.

I'm really bad, we go through and pick out all the suckers, hard candy and gum and I give that away. Then after that they can each have 1-2 pieces a day! Of course my sweet tooth I eat more than that each day

I do the same thing, only I did it this year while we were out visiting the neighborhood. I am amazed at the number of people who see the age and size of the child and still toss in jawbreakers of all things!!! I let her keep the suckers since she really likes them and does wonderfully with them. The little mini chocolate bars go in the freezer for mom and dad, the smarties, sweet tarts and gum are hers to keep, and the rest generally goes to work with daddy. I was surprised by what she would pick if people let her. One lady down out street had a whole bowl full of suckers and one bax of raisins. Mia took the raisins! Smart kid!!
