Friday start/sit and rankings

This week I have made tracks on the whole Halloween thing: we've got a big bag of candy ready to hand out, we've got a monkey costume for our son, and we've got one of those classic plastic pumpkin trick-or-treat things for him, too. This will be the first year that we take our son trick-or-treating and I'm kind of curious about how the whole candy thing goes. Does his candy just magically disappear overnight? Does it get doled out very slowly over the coming months? He's the kind of dude that subsists on crackers and air some most days and yet he's figured out that candy is delicious and should be hunted down at all costs. I'd like to inject spinach into a Reeses PB cup and hand that puppy over to him, but alas the candy companies haven't gotten on board with that one yet. We'll see how it all goes but for now I'm leaning towards the most-of-the-candy-leaves-the-house-immediately approach since my son's sugar intake and my ability to be an effective parent appear to be inversely related...

And a heads up that I'm planning a few weeks ahead for Halloween because, well, I'm a planner, but also my sister-in-law is quickly approaching her due date, meaning our family might jump in the car at any minute to head to Atlanta to snuggle our latest edition to the family. If I disappear on you again, you can assume that I'm busy welcoming our niece, but I will do my best to stay on top of things.

Also wanted to note that I added more links to rankings and projections this week after hearing from some of you that they are typically more helpful than start/sit links. Enjoy!

Let the candy flow. Just be sure that you and your husband inspect plenty of it, especially your favorite candy.
