This morning Grant told me this was waiting for me outside.
yaaaaaay! First snow of 2012. I love a good pre-Halloween snow! It lasts just long enough to be a sweet taste of what's to come. By tomorrow, it will all be gone. But we're milking it today! My Christmas playlist is playing, baking plans are in order, soup is on the stove, White Christmas may get put on later.. who knows?! The world is a different place today!
Oh, and speaking of Halloween...
I brought out the candy destined for our neighbors' kids. I love that my baby has no idea that this is "food." It's an awesome toy, though! We have been organizing and dumping and getting our money's worth out of this stuff. If we aren't going to eat it, we might as well play with it! and.. confession: I love the smell of candy when it's still in the wrapper. You remember it don't you? There's a faint aroma when you dump out the contents of your trick-or-treating.. the scent of sugar penetrates the plastic.. the chocolate-mixed-with-the-fruity fragrance. Totally sickening, but I can smell my wonderful childhood- right there in that pile of candy.
What's going on at your house today? And do you secretly love the candy stench??
