Day 26 - Happy Halloween!!! Only tricks for me today, no treats!
Wednesday, October 31, 2012
So today's been pretty good for me so far, I'm taking it easy on house chores today, I've got a long night tonight! We've got a festival at my church at 7pm so I'll be running around with my kids collecting candy for them and riding ponies!
I'll have to upload some pictures because we have the cutest costumes this year!!! My son (19 months is a plumber, like his daddy, and my daughter is Rapunzel from Tangled, although I didn't get her fake hair)
Today I've had the hardest time with wanting soda! I got the kids some cokes from sonic as a special treat and ever since the lady handed me one I've been craving a soda!!! I just badly want to take a sip but that would make me start over for sure! Which is not worth it, so when they finished I poured them out.
I've been doing really well about not getting candy so far, but of course the big test will be tonight while the kids are trick or treating... I need to figure out a way to not let them fill up their buckets!!! I might have them just pick 5 cars then that's it for collecting candy!!! Then we'll play the games and do the other fun stuff!!! I want to teach my kids what I'm having to learn now, Holidays, even Halloween don't have to be about the sweets or food, it's about having fun and enjoying time with family and dressing up!!!
Well wish me luck in the hunt!!!
