But it's been a while.
I've never bought, made or put out Halloween decorations, and it's only been in the last couple of years that we've taken Christian trick-or-treating. I haven't even bought any candy this year. To hand out, I'm saying.

But I like to bake (shocker!) so I decided to make some cupcake pops for Christian's class. Look closely, because you will never, ever see these on this blog again.
I baked the cake at 9:00 last night, then dashed to the store for the rest of the supplies, and got home at ten to finish what I could before bed. Which was at 1:30 this morning. I got up at 6:30 this morning to get Christian ready for school, and started working on these the minute I got home from dropping her off at 7:30. Well. Not the minute. I did have to drink a cup of coffee to clear the cobwebs from my brain. Unfortunately, the coffee didn't work as well as I'd hoped.
But I did finish them just in time to rush them to the school, an hour before dismissal, so she could hand them out to a bunch of sweaty, stinky-dog-smelling kids who probably don't care what they look like as long as they taste good.
And they do.
Lordy, they do.
