I think I'd play it safe and check them; the TSA gets rather excitable
about some decidedly odd and frequently innocuous things. You *may* be
given the opportunity to put them in an envelope and mail them; some 
airports provide that facility for prohibited items, but I don't know 
that all do, and in any event stamps may not be available, or they may
be out of envelopes, or something else of the sort. 

I hope you have a totally boring and uneventful flight wach way and 
a *marvelous* weekend.
