I just have one more post about Halloween and then I promise I'm done.
We went to two pumpkin carving parties this year and we had a blast at both.
The first was with some family friends. They have a wonderful pumpkin carving party every year.
They do it in the garage and have chili and scones and tons of treats. I think I ate 3 scones, they were so yummy! We have not been the last few years so it was really great to go again and just chat the night away.
The second was a homeschooling costume party. Again, there were tons of yummy treats and great friends to chat with. Did I mention that I love Halloween?
So here is a little slide show of our pumpkin carving festivities.
Now, on to the next item of business.
I just have to share what Mr Bird and I decided to do with the loads of candy the heathens brought home from trick or treating.
We ate on it for a few days.
When I say we I really mean I.
I ate and ate and ate nothing but candy for 2 days strait.
Then I came to a conclusion.
I need CA (Chocoholics anonymous)
Hello, my name is Dreamer and I'm a chocoholic.
I realized I was not going to be able to stop eating it until it was either all gone or out of my house. As long as it was there, I had a piece in my mouth or I was dreaming about what I was going to have next. Of course I was hiding it from the kids. If they saw what I was doing they might want to do it too. Heaven forbid I should let my kids eat THAT much candy, that's absurd. Still, I could not control myself.
So I thought of a plan.
We could not just chuck it all or we'd have 3 angry heathens to deal with. So we did what any good parent would do, we bribed them.
We offered them each a dollar and a trip to the dollar store to by anything they wanted if daddy could take all their candy and give it to the poor people he works with who didn't get any candy.
Guess what... it worked.
Turns out they love money more than candy.
So now the candy is gone from my house and I didn't have to eat all of it.
The heathens are happy cuz they got a new toy to cart around until it gets forgotten or broken.
Everyone is happy...except me.
I'm down from my sugar high and I feel like I'm in detox.
I need serious help.
