A Baking Day

Ok I can't stand it when Halloween goes by and the kids have tons of candy! My kids argue over who has more or who has a better selection. I just let them have at it until it is gone. Well today I can finally say it is gone! So in celebration I baked today. I know, are baked goods better then candy?  I think so. They don't stick to your teeth,  My kids get the same exact thing and number and I have more control over what goes in it. Well at least I do with my cookies which I make from scratch with butter eggs flour sugar and all that other good stuff. My brownies I make from the box (Ghirardelli) because I don't think  I can make them any better.   My husband loves it when I bake. He is known to get up in the middle of the night, sneak downstairs to the kitchen and pour a cold glass of milk, and stand over the kitchen sink having chocolate chip cookies and milk.  Only thing that gives him away is the chocolate breath when he gets back into bed.  Oh and all the noise he makes taking the tin foil off and getting the milk and glasses out. He is not very sneaky!

Kids have the day off for the holiday tomorrow so I am trying to come up with something fun to do. I am thinking we may go to visit my husband at his new office in the sky ( in a skyscraper). The kids have not been there yet and there are lots of other fun things to do in the city for the day!
