We bought 125 pieces of candy. Did not open the bags until the first knock on the door. AND by 9:00 p.m. we only had about 20 pieces left. They immediately went into a baggie and hubby took them to work today.
For me, when I heard that Heath Bar and the Almond Joy and the Skittles calling my name...I knew if they'd hung around any longer, I was dead. Right now, I know one bite would trigger a binge that I couldn't control. Right now, even writing this, I am wanting some....arggggh.
Next year. In moderation.

We have a very active neighborhood when it comes to Halloween as there is only one way in and out of our community so it is relatively safe. Besides most of us neighbors sit outside so we can patrol our blocks. That being said, we get a lot of children from other areas as parents know we are a safe bet.
I have four huge bags of various candies and I am praying that I can get rid of it all because I just can't eat one! I'm a chocoholic and all I have to do is get a little taste and I'm off the wagon!
Saints have a past; Sinners have a future!
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!

we don't have trick or treaters but hubby buys bags and bags of candy, donuts, piaaz's and anything with sugar. I cannot eat one piece no one. He takes the cany upstairs at night. I also lock donuts in my trunk.
