Minus Two and Counting!

HALLOWEEN!  My second favorite “holiday” — Valentine’s Day is still #1!

YES — I’m being facetious. Both days are torture to me. But, Halloween, the spooky one, is upon us.  Here’s the answer —     🙂

I will fight the fight — and I WILL win.

Thanks to a good friend, I have an alternative  to dole out to the Trick/Treaters — Play Doh!  Remember that squishy, colorful stuff that you could form into various shapes, in the hopes that the end result might actually look like something recognizable. It came in a can and, I’m happy to report, it still does.

Thanks to Dollar Tree, that’s what my visiting ghosts and goblins will be receiving when they come Trick or Treating to my house. They had two different sizes: One package contained 4 for $1.00, and another had 8 smaller cans for $1.00.

This alternative to a sugar rush, will give the chickadees hours of entertainment and the opportunity to be creative. AND — most importantly, there will be NO bowl of candy calling my name at the front door.  This T2D’s blood sugar levels will remain in tact.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN everyone and  — thanks to Jane for the idea!        🙂

  2. I think thats a great idea, since living here in Florida for 20 years I have never had one knock on my door so I stopped buying candy years ago, but I will remember the play dough idea.

  3. Thanks, Deb. I knew it was right for me, but I wasn’t sure how the kids would take to it. SURPRISE! They LOVED it — it was really funny. From the little ones through the teenagers, they were excited to figure out what they’d make with it. 🙂 LOL
