It has been less than a week since I got back from my amazing trip in VA, and today is the first time that I feel like my high from the trip and missing my kids has worn off- my first day back to reality so to speak. Does anyone want to guess what you get when you add an early weekend Halloween trunk or treat + two kids that are home from school and running on little sleep? Every year all that candy that makes my kids act wild and that I myself can’t stay away from reminds me that I hate Halloween. Or maybe I should say I hate Halloween candy, because the costumes and decorations I love. I sometimes wish I was one of those parents that only allowed their kids to eat apple slices for Halloween, but I just don’t have it in me to deny my kids that ridiculous week long, pillow-case-full-of-candy sugar high that made up some of my fondest childhood memories. And I feel like I would be punishing my kids for my lack of self control and patience (as I sit here typing with a side-ache that no doubt came from that 450 piece bag of Tootsie Rolls that I have dipped into all day long). Yuck. And the official day is not even here yet- Yikes! Heaven help all of us parents make it through this next week…
Enough of my rant- on to something positive! My trip to VA was amazing- it was such a blast to meet up with so many of the wonderful families that I have gotten to know over the past several years. And everyone’s children just get cuter with age:) I will post a mass sneak peek in the next few days, but for now I wanted to mention a special I have this upcoming holiday season- Christmas Mini Books! Many of you may be familiar with these popular little albums, but this year I am offering some new updated designs. They make the perfect gift for Nana or Uncle Mark:) Here are the details:
