BOO and Run!

In mid-October, my kids love to "ghost" their friends' houses. "Ghosting" involves ringing, running and leaving candy at a friend's door. The recipient continues the "ghosting" spreading candy and mischief from house to house.

The always-creative Skip to my Lou blog has come up with a special plan that will show you how to create your own special Halloween ring and run fun. You will find instructions on how to create a special pumpkin to start the chain and a copy of a cute poem to travel from door to door in your neighborhood. Have fun!!

Healthy Halloween Candy Choices?

Sometimes when I am "borrowing" a piece or two of candy from my children's Halloween candy bags, I wonder which would be a healthier choice: a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup or a Snicker's bar... Fortunately, Real Simple magazine has put together a fun quiz for you to take to discover which candies are better choices.

(By the way, choose the Snickers bar!)
