47.2 pounds...

...of CANDY in my house.

well actually more... i didn't count the candy in our regularly well stocked candy bowl.

my sister heather had the closest guess in the candy contest with 47 pounds. but unfortunately she said to keep it. that totally was not the point of the contest... it was to get it OUT of my house! the next closest was my niece callie with her guess of 55 pounds. i already promised her and her sisters that i'd bring lots of candy at Christmas, and so that y'all don't think the winners were fixed (since they were family members), kimberly also gets a bag with her 3rd closest guess of 32 pounds.

oh joy that this candy will hopefully be disappearing to some place other than my mouth! :-)

I'm glad I'm not the only one whose husband loves sweets. I'm constantly finding stashes (in the backseat, on the garage workbench) of half-eaten boxes of cupcakes, triple chocolate cookies, York peppermint patties, sour patch kids... You get the idea.
