So, you made it through Halloween – congratulations! It is one of the toughest holidays.
Our kids are getting older now and this year they did their own sorting. [Ricky does not react on contact.] They had piles of unsafe candy for Dad to take to work.
Some strange-looking candy shaped like eyeballs and brains just went right to the trash! Candy with traces of tree nuts or peanuts went to our non-allergic daughter’s lunchbox.
With the points they earned for all this candy, the kids “bought” a Life game, two books, a baseball luggage tag, a Taylor Swift CD, Skittles and some Canadian-made Nestle candy. They passed over a Richard Scarry DVD; I think they are growing up too fast!
