Does She Look A Little Green To You?

It's Saturday morning and I've officially overloaded on Halloween candy. I've stuffed my craw with more Twizzlers, Sweettarts and Swedish fish in fifteen hours than I do all year. Hubs is nursing his own chocolate hangover. He goes for the chocolaty stuff while I'm all about the sugar. It is like a hangover because at the very thought of candy, I get a little queasy and a giant bowl of spinach sounds deliciously recuperative. Our house is awash in little cellophane wrappers and the kids all look a little green. Even the bebe looked wierd last night, slighty oxygen deprived, blue cast around the mouth but that's probably because she had a tiny handful of blue mini M&Ms. Still, a good time was had by all and it will be another year before we approach this level of indulgence again.

Happy Halloween.

cool mom. Not a candy nazi. What's the point in trick-or-treating if you can't go a little crazy with the pixie sticks and blow pops afterward? Some moms around here dose it out like it's a methadone clinic, stupid candy lasts 'til like, easter. Where's the fun in that?

mmmmm, Twizzlers. If there's a candy I miss from the U.S. it's Twizzlers. Sweet Tarts are pretty good as well.

What?? Another whole year?
No Christmas candy?
No Easter bunny chocolates?
