    1. Ha, Jess, I love this. Halloween candy always stumps me as well (though, my answer has always been “EAT IT, all of it!” hahaha). 🙂 Glad this helps you out!

  2. Leftover Halloween candy??? Never heard of it… Hahaha…
    Love you Kirst! Miss you tons! Loved the kids costumes this year – your talent shines!

    1. Haha- Kedran, I would eat almost all of the candy myself (seriously). I am trying to make myself a small-ish bag, make Adam a small-ish bag, fish out the kids’ favorites (tootsie rolls and lollipops- what’s wrong with them?) and get rid of the rest. Though, right now I also have a giant bag full of fun-size candy bars to make the candy bar bark for a shower next weekend. 🙂
      Thanks for the costume compliments- high honor coming from the Queen Of Costumes. 🙂 LOVE YOU back!

    1. Ha- totally with you Allison. I can’t seem to pass our Halloween candy basket without grabbing something sugar-y!
