This year we tried something a little different with the boys in dealing with the large amount of candy they received. People in Faro are very generous on how much they hand out to the kids. Our boys didn't go to a lot of houses and still had their bags overflowing! We told them that if they left out a big pile of candy for the Candy Fairy, that she would leave a toy in return. The boys thought this was a great idea and bought right into it. They were screaming with glee the next morning when they found Ninja Turtle figurines sitting out for them where they had left their piles of candy. So that reduced the loot to about half.
