What's up with 4 kids showing up for Halloween !!?? My goodness, resulted in too many leftovers

Thursday, November 01, 2012

Yep, 4 kids, that's it., between my daughter and myself, we have a box of 50 bags of chips, 6 boxes of chocolate bars -- anywhere from 80 - 100 in each box!

It was 8 below with one wicked wind last night, so I suspect that has something to do with our 'huge crowd' of candy lovers.

Even my granddaughter only went out for 45 minutes at the most and had enough after this short time. I can understand in her case however, Grandma has so much, it's just too much trouble to bother going door to door.

Oh, well, done for another year, I will hide the stuff away ..... out of sight = out of mind HOPEFULLY. There is always stuff for Christmas I suppose, my parents come to stay usually for about 10 days, my Dad can clean out a bowl of candy in record speed .... believe me, I've seen it!!

Hope you all had a great Halloween and don't eat too many leftovers! I can't believe I ate none of it, not one little bite, Wow I am really commuted that means !!!

    We did not have any treat or treaters ring our doorbell. It's a shame that some members of society has ruin such a wonderful neighborhood tradition.

    Donating the left over candy to the local food bank is a great idea.
    There are other kids who didn't go trick or treating that would love the candy.

    You might want to give it to a local food bank , that way it's not there to tempt you and you'll have a good feeling in your heart knowing it didn't go to waste! There are kids that are in need and deserve a special treat.... just a suggestion

    I have trouble myself with out of sight out of mind. I always remember exactly where it is. You might consider donating some to a nursing home or to a senior citizen center. I'm sure they would appreciate it.

    I've never bought candy for where I'm living. I'm so far out in the sticks that no one can find me. Life is good. Good luck with the out of sight, out of mind plan. I wish you the best.
