Happy Halloween!

Halloween never comes on a Friday night so I’m excited to hand out candy to the kiddies tonight!

Happy Halloween! I love giving out the candy to the kids! I'm not a big candy eater so having it in our house is not tempting to us. But I want to know what your favorite Halloween candy?
This morning I prepped the candy bucket and I am so excited to see the kids dressed up in their costumes. I just hope the kids will show up since it’s Friday night in the South. That is usually filled with high school football, so we’ll see.

I’ve been taking a poll on what people’s favorite candy is and chocolate seems to win out. Chocolate bars and chocolate peanut butter cups. Back in the day, I used to tear up peanut butter cups so I would probably go with that.

Having the candy is our house isn’t tempting because it’s just not something I want to eat. If I were to put some Twizzlers in the house, Willie would be seriously tempted though. That’s really the only candy he eats…and peanut butter cups.

Did you see the post I posted on FB about eating the Halloween candy and working it off? It’s definitely something you should check out if you plan on eating a lot of candy!  Eat a piece and work it off!

I was asked this morning if we gave out candy at our house for Halloween.  Yes we do!  It’s a special day for kids and they should enjoy it.  I don’t need to brow beat my healthy eating habits onto a kid on the biggest candy day of the year.  I do hope parents teach their kids about moderation though.  In addition to giving out candy, I give out pretzels too.  One year I tried the pre-packaged apple slices and that didn’t go over to well.  But there has always been candy.

I hope everyone enjoys a spooky special Halloween on this Friday!  Have a piece of candy but not too much!

Are you dressing up for Halloween?  What are you going to be?
