The Hunt for the Almond m&m's

Typical of Wednesday evening, Brandon is at his running group. The kids are all asleep and I'm relaxing. Then I remember Brandon brought home some almond m&m's yesterday. I decide to find them. I look in all the usual candy spots. The singing dog cookie/treat jar, the cupboard above the stove, but no m&m's. Where could he have put them? Our girls are great at finding any kind of treat in the house. We once stored Gatorade in a solid tote under the Church bag, only to have Bryn discover it the next day. They have the sugar gene. So...he had to have hid it somewhere good. After looking with absolutely no success, I decided to check the more 'easy to find' locations. I opened the pantry, and voila. The m&m's. In plain sight for the whole world to see. Really, it was a great strategy. The girls don't think to look in the pantry for treats. There are NEVER treats in there. Brandon, you're brilliant.
