Yesterday was a busy day...not only for parents but for kids too. Most kiddos had Halloween parties at their school and then attended Trick or Treat on Bish's Street. By the time my kids got in the car to go traditional trick-or-treating they were exhausted, but quickly recovered when they saw Grandma and Grandpa's house.

Even though Halloween is exhausting, it is one of my favorite holidays. I love seeing my kids in their costumes and I love seeing their eyes light up when a friendly neighbor gives them a handful of candy. The morning following Halloween isn't as magical and without coffee, soda or energy drinks it may not even be possible. How many cups of coffee will you have to drink today to make it to 5:00?
