Trick or Treat

Happy Saturday,

No rain yet but it looks like Monday will be our rain and wind! Yikes they just fixed our roads from the floods in June. I hope you are all well and have not been impacted by "Sandy". How do you like this Chocolate delight? Yes, this is a display at Burdick's chocolate shop. My husband took me for Americano this afternoon and we share a lemon chocolate cake that was delicious!!! He wanted to sample some chocolates but no chocolates today. He was bummin'!!!

I made these cute little treat bags for my co-workers! Edwin and Tilda had to be the show stoppers. I added some candy to each bag! Trick or Treat.....

Here are some closer shots of the bags:

Here are the treats I used to create my bags:
