How was everyone’s Halloween? I can’t believe it’s over already and that November is literally minutes away. I’m kind of bummed because I just feel like I could get into the spooky cheer today as much as normal – for a number of reasons. Anika has been gone at outdoor school this week and just got back today at 1 pm – so she didn’t get to carve pumpkins with us last night. Our small town had a big football game tonight, which is fine except that it put a damper on all of the trick or treating celebrating.
Yesterday Noah had his Halloween party, and this afternoon Emma had hers. They all got sugared up on anything you can think of that was colored orange and then all played bingo in their costumes. I had a little Greek Goddess on my hands.
After school got out we all got ready and headed over to Noah’s preschool/ church for a Harvest party where there were games, food, bouncy houses, and hayrides. My little Goddess, Minnie Mouse, and Ninja Turtle had fun.
We then came home and did our usual trick or treating in our cul-de-sac. I was worried that I may have actually bought too much candy because it just didn’t feel as busy and alive as it normally does – and not as many of our neighbors were participating in the fun (thanks to the football game!) but by 8:30 when we turned the lights off, we still somehow had 310 trick-or-treaters that had walked up to our porch.
I know the kids will still be coming down from their sugar high over the next couple of days, but I had a little treat I want to share with you! Werther’s Original recently sent me a bunch of goodies to try – including their new Caramel Popcorn. I was actually going to take some pictures to show you, but my family got a hold of them and literally inhaled them – all FOUR bags. Yeah, they are that good. Werther’s also has new Caramel Apple filled candies which are my favorite!
Werther’s has an Unwrap The Magic sweepstakes going on right now where they are giving away a trip to Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fl. for the 2015 Epcot Food and Wine Festival! How fun would that be? You can enter to win at www.werthersmagic.com
In the meantime, I’m giving away 2 Werther’s Original product coupons so you can head to the store and get 2 free bags of deliciousness for yourself!
