and a princess.
We had a good evening. We went to the Fall Family Fun Night at my parents' church. Had a yummy tri-tip sandwich for dinner and then wandered around through firetrucks and school buses, bounced in bounce houses, threw footballs through tires and bean bags into sombreros. And collected candy. And more candy. And even more candy. My philosophy towards candy has definitely changed over the past couple of years. I used to allow the kids to eat one or two pieces and then collect it and dole it out in ones and twos over the next several weeks. Well, this lead to lying and stealing and whining and all sorts of irritating behaviours. So now... I just let them have it. They could eat as much as they wanted today and I'm going to let them gorge tomorrow afternoon and be done with it. I don't care anymore. I may end up throwing some of it away tonight, just so they won't have quite so much, but don't tell them that. They'll get mad. I may eat a little, too. I saw a Heath bar in there, and a Butterfinger. Two of my favorites.
