The other night, Jon and I grabbed the kids (not hard), loaded them into the car, and headed for our annual drive down Candy Cane Lane. For those who don’t know, Candy Cane Lane is a neighborhood right here in the Woodland Hills area of Los Angeles, where every house is decorated in an over the top manner. In fact, if you want to move into that neighborhood you literally have to sign a contract that you will decorate the crap out of your house every year or else…well I don’t know what they could really do to you for refusing to give your front lawn a Charlie Brown Peanuts theme but it’s beside the point. It’s a good time is what I’m really trying to say.
Before we went we grabbed some snacks.
I think I established in a past post here on Babble that donuts make for an excellent negotiation tool when attempting to inspire your children to clean. But since the house has been full o’ donuts (chocolaty frosted devils), well they also accompanied our hot cocoa and Candy Cane Lane expedition quite well.
The thing that Elby most wanted to do was stick her head through the sunroof while we were driving slowly down the street. We let her do it. We’re those parents. Hey, it was fun. Okay, so Candy Cane Lane snack, breakfast…oh wait. Here are a few more uses I’ve discovered for Hostess donettes.

Super Cool Pirate Eye Patch 1 of 4Caution: If used for Halloween, please eat by November 1st.
Super Cool Soul Patch 2 of 4Dumb hipster hat wear optional
Real Housewives Watching Fuel 3 of 4You can use Donettes for any franchise but might I recommend Beverly Hills?
Proper Substitute for Wine 4 of 4If you've quit drinking, you'll need something powerful to take its place. If you haven't quit drinking, I'd recommend red to go with the chocolaty frosted devils.
P. to the S. Thank you Hostess for sponsoring this blog post. Their donettes and everything else have their own fanpage on Facebook and it has way more likes than me. But I’m not bitter. Go give them another one.
