Kids love Halloween for two reasons…dressing up in their favorite costume and all the candy they will be getting. Parents love Halloween to see all their kids smiling faces, and maybe for sneaking some of their candy! When your kids are tucked into bed and sleeping off all the sugar, why not open a bottle of wine and enjoy some candy yourself. Check out my list of which wines pair best with what candy.
If your anything like me, you never buy anything for yourself...it's all about the kids and what they need and want. Sometimes there are things you see in the store that you grab, but then think about it a little more then you decide to put it back. That is me almost every time!
Do you hear that…it sounds far away, but it keeps getting closer and closer. Yep, that’s what I thought, it’s my daughter calling, or I mean yelling for me. Her brother must have done something to bother her already…I look at the clock and it’s only 7 in the morning, that could be a record for them. Amazingly my youngest is still sound asleep in his crib, but I doubt he will be for much longer. Let me get up, brush my teeth and get a cup of coffee before I deal with this craziness. I’m sure it’s nothing serious, just arguing over what cartoon to turn on or maybe he just looked at her…oh the drama of an 8 year old girl!!
