    Project: Halloween Treats

    Halloween treats – yes, treat bags for the trick-or-treaters tonight. Halloween Treats Each year I put together about a dozen treat bags for the children who trek out to our house in the country. I don’t know why, yet I feel like since there aren’t that many houses around we should give bigger treats. Does that even make sense? So, this year I’ve got popcorn, full sized chocolate bars, halloween ring pops, fizz candy, and some other items, too. I also picked up these spooky…

    Movie Treats – Candy

    Movie treats – candy. That’s right, it’s candy time. Oh, and most of it is gluten free, so that’s a bonus. In mid-August my brother and his wife visited us in Edmonton and it was so much fun. Hiking, shopping, corn mazes and escape rooms (we got out!!) just to mention a few highlights. One of the best parts, they got us a GC to the Keg so last Sunday we decided to have a little date night. Off to the movies to see War…
