Today I'm grateful for leftover Halloween Candy. I may not have been quite so grateful on Halloween night when I realized how very much I had over-bought, but tonight it is nice to have a variety of munchie treats to choose from.
DH bought some to take to his work to dish up to the kids of co-workers, and then called me Halloween morning to warn me that he had also accidently grabbed several bags that I had left out on the dining room table. Worried that I wouldn't have enough for both the trunk or treat activity at the church parking lot, I stopped off at the drug store on my way home from work and bought several more large bags. Needless to say, we had plenty, enough, and even more. Many of the neighborhood kids made the rounds of the parking lot several times, and I'm sure that one of my sweet young friends stopped by our trunk at least six or seven times. (No names will be named, to protect the guilty. I love that girl in spite of her sweet tooth.)
I have tucked some away for later, taken some to work to share, and we still have a nice sized container sitting out for us to munch on.
Now, if I can only exercise a bit of restraint! I do love me some chocolate!
