Makes My Monday: It's over

Lilyann..all wiped out from trick or treating I was trying to figure out what makes my Monday....and I think I have it!

It makes my Monday, that Halloween is in the past...just a sweet candy-filled memory.
Out of sight, out of mind is working beautifully **knock on wood** (now, that I have said something about it, the kids will start whining for it...) I separated all the candy...chocolate for mommy and daddy (makes me LOVE Halloween) and the rest for the kids. Lily loves Lollipops and Tootsie Rolls. After finding open candy throughout the house, I have realized that Kota seems to love opening the candy..but not really finishing it.

Since I am not a seasoned Trick or Treater, we took the kids to the houses of our friends..and to one of our friend's churches. They had a "trunk or treat" for the kids. The kids really cleaned up the candy from each place. We visited our friends, Dave and Liz's church. And then headed on to Miss Heather's house...a friend from church, and then on to Uncle Matt and Aunt Sara's house.
I'm surprised at how much candy the kids got. Dakota got a few dozen powdered donuts from his best pal, Dave. Kota loves Mrs. Baird's Powdered Donuts...even more than candy. And Dave works for Mrs. Baird's. Kota was in Donut Heaven this weekend....which provided me the opportunity to stash the candy out of sight.

Lily with Daddy...she was all sticky from sampling her treats

Lily on the other hand got her fill of candy. Every time someone would give her candy, she would hand 1 piece back to them and say, "peese." She wanted the candy opened to eat right away. And as she left, she would blow them kisses.

Trick or treating really wore out Miss Lily

I'm so glad you had a great Halloween and the kids enjoyed it.

I like their costumes. They look so cute.

Have a nice week.
