I've been dreading Halloween for awhile now. The kids love going to so many houses and filling up their baskets twice over. Unfortunately, they're not much into the eating part. We still have an Easter basket on top of our entertainment center that is full of candy from that holiday. So I'll be disposing of that candy and replacing it with the Halloween candy soon.
We always hand out candy at home as well. I am usually in charge of this as my wife loves walking around visiting with the neighbors and she grew up in our neighborhood so she knows most everyone. I was thinking about passing out something different this year like pencils, trinkets or something that would not contribute to the candy overload, but when I checked out the prices it seemed too expensive. So it's Skittles and Starburst at our house this year. I will be taking the leftover candy to work the day after so I am not tempted. Not sure how I'll deal with the kids candy. I may have them pick some of their favorites and bring the rest to work as well. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
