Autumn is here. The fall leaves are tumbling down, along with the temperatures. My grandkids are excitedly counting down the days til Halloween with the fun harvest festival at church, not to mention visiting a few of their neighbors to show off their latest disguise decor. And I've been having fun snapping tons of photos of grandkids and granddogs with my easy to use digital camera as we have all been reveling in the fun and crunchy leaves of all colors from yellows to browns to vivid reds. And I am finally all ready for all the cute trick or treaters who will come to visit our Sandwich Generation family.

I have my braces-friendly candy, my fun alternatives to candy, the cute cards with encouraging Bible verses, and last – but definitely not least – the "cushion candy." What is cushion candy you ask? That's the extra bags of candy I buy so I make SURE we don't run out. BUT since those are all usually left over (to make sure I have a REALLY good cushion just in case the weather is perfect and we get double the amount of kids from previous years), those candies are the ones my senior mom and I love. Like my M&M peanuts, which I console myself with the thought that they are relatively healthy!?!??!?!?!?! Not to mention full of red M&Ms for Rednesday.

The Sandwich Generation granny nanny does love M&Ms

And then there are some of my senior mom's favorite candies, including Almond Joys, along with some divine dark chocolate which we both love (dark chocolate is the new green vegetable you know! πŸ™‚ ), all in their pretty pink bags for Pink Saturday!

So what are YOUR favorite "cushion candies" that you like to keep around the house, for those moments the munchies attack or the Sandwich Generation issues "blues" hit and you just need a bit of a chocolate boost to help you stay on track? We'd love to hear. πŸ™‚

P.S. So many of us in the Sandwich Generation love our cute critters like my adorable granddog above.

    YEA FOR SCARLET

    Yea for scarlet, yea for red!
    Yea for summertime that’s fled
    To some far-off frigid place,
    Where no ruby shows its face!

  • We have our HUGH bag of candy from Sams club and were ready for “trunk or treat” at church. Our group is dressing up as Beach Bums.Ann

  • Oh how fun, Ann! I’ve taken the grandkids to trunk or treats at our church in the past but never set up my own car. Someday… It definitely is a lot of fun on either end, isn’t it πŸ™‚

  • You aren’t kidding, Teacher. There’s delightful frost all around and summer is running fast. πŸ™‚

  • Happy Pink Saturday Kaye Sweetie…
    Oh what a gorgeous share today. I love the pink packages and yes I have some of those comfort candies as well. Reese’s peanut butter cups. Kind of like Ruffles chips, bet you can’t eat just one.

    M and Ms and Almond joys or Mounds are also close in the running, as well as those Dove Milk Chocolate candies. Yummy. You know we always have about 200 kids come through our neighborhood, and I buy lots, always kinds I think I won’t eat, well by the end of the night, you would be amazed at what new treats you have found in that bucket while waiting for the next group of kids to pass through.

    I LOVED that photo of your little critter playing in the leaves. How precious that was. I love how the wind is playing its hair. Just a precious, precious photo. He/she almost blends in with the leaves. So cute. Thank you for sharing today.

    I so enjoyed my visit. Many country hugs and much love, Sherry

  • Loved your comments, Sherry! I know just what you mean. No matter what I bought, I’d sneak one or two or ten. So now, I just bow to the inevitable – hence my cushion. πŸ™‚ Thanks so much for a delightful visit. πŸ™‚

  • Ha! I thought you’d say that “cushion candy” was the candy you got to eat while you were hanging out on the couch “cushions” waiting for visitors! πŸ™‚

    HaPpY pInK sAtUrDaY!

  • Thanks chubskulit πŸ™‚
