What are you plans for Halloween? How are we going to make it through the night?
I have held off this long before I have bought any Halloween candy. I didn't trust myself to have it in the house. I'm finally going to have to break down today and go grab a few things for the kiddos who will be Trick or Treating in the neighborhood. I asked our Neighbor how many kids we usually get since we were clueless being first time homeowners and he said usually between 35-45. I'm SO glad I asked him because when Scott and I were talking about it last week, we figured we'd get around 60 or more kids so we were going to buy a big bulk box of Chocolate bars! Good thing we didn't. Leftovers on Halloween = trouble trouble.
I think my plan is going to be to allow myself (save up my points of course) ONE treat for the night. I will pick out my favorite thing and put it aside (in a visible area) for the end of the night. That way while I'm passing out my candy, I will keep that treat in the back of my mind and I'll know it's waiting for me. Who knows, by then end of the night, I might not even want it. (Who I am I even trying to kid here?) That's my plan. Also towards the end of the night, I'll start doubling up on my treat giving if I think there will be any leftovers. I don't want anything left at the house! Too dangerous! I feel for you ladies who have little ones that come home with bags upon bags of yummy candy. How do you resist when they leave for school? That would be rough! Be Strong ladies! Be Strong!
I'll be posting pics of the Halloween Partay tonight so stay tuned!
