Halloween, Hold the Sugar!
I knew I would love watching the magic of Christmas through the eyes of my children but I did not anticipate how much I would love Halloween as a parent. I love planning my children's costumes and having dress-up days at school. I love going to pumpkin patches and hosting pumpkin carving parties. BUT I do not love managing candy:
How many pieces are we going to allow them to eat per day? How many pieces am I going to allow myself to eat after they go to bed to shrink their pile? How can I perfectly time the sugar rush and then the sugar crash?
As a result, I have made it a personal mission to find non-candy treats to pass out. Here are a few of my favorites - complete with sayings if you really want to Pinterest-it-up!
