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