I've gained four pounds in well under a week.
The Halloween candy and I are not on speaking terms.
Since I'm guessin' I'm not the only one with this issue, I'm sharing a fabulous little tip sent to me by my cousin-in-law, Jamie. She did this with her kids and their candy and I'm planning on doing it too.
Introducing the Halloween Candy Christmas Countdown...Have your kids pick out 25 favorite pieces of their Halloween candy and make Christmas countdown chains with it. Lay a long piece of saran wrap on the floor, place the candy in the middle, fold over each side and tie in between each piece with ribbon. It's helpful to use a different color of ribbon for each kid so that they will know which ones is theirs. Store the loot safely on a shelf until December 1st and then reveal!
