Thanks to our friends at FreeFuninAustin.com for sharing this article with us!

If your children end up with too much candy this Halloween, and you want to swiftly remove it from the house, consider taking part in the Halloween Candy Buy Back Program. Participating area dentists will buy back Halloween candy from neighborhood children, then send it to the troops overseas as part of Operation Gratitude.

Operation Gratitude annually sends more than 100,000 care packages, filled with snacks, toiletries, entertainment, hand-made items and letters of appreciation. The mission of Operation Gratitude is to lift the morale of and express appreciation for our military and their families.

In her life before kids, Emily held jobs as a zookeeper, a middle school teacher, and a tour bus driver in the wilds of Montana–not one of which prepared her for the adventures of motherhood. Now she’s living the good life in Austin with her husband, two sons and a Great Dane. When she’s not off gallivanting with her boys, you might find Emily baking up a mean batch of cupcakes, recalling obscure 80s song lyrics, or dreaming of peace and quiet.
