Catching up

It's been quiet here at In These Hills. We've been busy buttoning up for winter with not very photogenic activities such as bringing in the hoses and sweeping up spider webs! This little series of photos was taken by the girls on the day after Halloween. I think the sorting of the candy is almost as much fun as the trick or treating.

Hels managed to get Lou to trade away her big candy bars.

Top Ramen....lol. Oh now that really IS bad!! Can you imagine being the adult picking out Halloween treats at the store and actually thinking, "Gotta get some Top Ramen. You know....cuz it's all little kiddies' favorite!"

We have the same moment but on the 31 th of december, the last day of the year, we go around the streets and houses and sing a song to wish the people a happy newyear, and we get candy or money, my boys find it always very exciting to do and they realy look forward to it. And just as your kids , they love to unload their baskets.

I also read this story about the sugar fairy over at bird nest.

The candy at our house will most likely be gone by the end of today...thank goodness! My kids were generous in sharing their candy and I ate way too much. ;)

Those piles don't look too bad...my daughter got a milk jug FULL of junk. I let her and her brother have one or two pieces, and then everything went into the trash. Except the chocolate, and the Smarties, those are in my nightstand :-)

Cracker Jacks - I'll take the cracker jacks.

Have you ever noticed that there is a priority list of candies? First all one type disappears. Then the other medium level candies. Finally there are the rejects, but eventually that is all that is left so eventually they disappear too.

DH came up with one way to slow down the consumption of candy - Freeze them. Frozen candy take a lot longer to eat.

I love the candy organization! It's the same with our kids! Parents get the reject pile as well as the "Parent tax" of a couple choicer picks!!!!
