So yesterday I decided that maybe it was time to take down all the Halloween decorations. Not that I had that many. I'm not a big "holiday decorator" when it comes to my home. I put up a few simple touches here and there, but that's about it.
A couple weeks before Halloween my dad and step mom sent the kids a great package...cookies and a darling pumpkin cookie jar! Needless to say, we gobbled up those cookies at record pace, so the poor pumpkin was empty bellied.
Fast forward a couple weeks...I had dumped a bunch of Snickers into Mr. Empty Belly Pumpkin and about every 7.295 seconds I would go visit him and grab one (really, where did these extra 5 pounds come from?). Well, yesterday when I went to go put Empty Belly away I opened him up to grab another Snickers and put them elsewhere, look what I found...
I nearly split my already-to-tight-jeans!!!
I truly believe in God whispers.
I'm not sure if that is a God whisper or a great big smack upside the head. I'm pretty sure I heard God say, "My Child...quit eating the Snickers or you're going to weigh 500 lbs by Christmas."
Of course it could just be a really funny joke by my 7-year-old (it was her Hail Mary card).
Whatever it was...right then and there I quit the Snickers cold turkey.
