Trunk or Treat

This year our church organized a trunk or treat.
With a homemade soup and dessert potluck beforehand, (I had my sissy's yummy sweet potato corn chowder) I came hungry and left happy. Afterward, all of the children, in Halloween costumes of course, went out in the parking lot where all the trunks were opened and decorated, and where everyone stood, giving away candy out of their trunk.

Hey Lil Cccccccccc...if at first you don't succeed, then


try, oh please try...



again! We got it! 3rd times the charm, my boy!

So, along with my sissy's Brooke and Amber...



And all their kids...

We came. We trunk or treated.

And, ulitmately, we triumphed. Because we got ONE smiling picture of my son in a costume.
And we had a really, really awesome time.

Ania, I know, it was insane! I remember as a kid in SLC trick or treating and having it be snowing...last night and tonight for trick or treating, it was in the low 70's! None of us could believe it - ! (Although, it's prob because of global warming...sad!)

Yo girl. That was fast! You are quick. Those pics are so cute. I'm glad you got a good one because I understand it's hard to get a good pic with 2yr. olds.That was a good night.I'm glad you and Cade came.

It was hot as heck yesterday I couldn't believe it. C looks so cute. It's great taking toddlers trick-or-treating cause you can have first dibs on their candy.

Sounds really fun. I sat in my bedroom with the door closed with Simon and Atticus with music blaring so I wouldn't here the door knockers trick-or-treating....cuz, typically speaking, that usually produces panic attacks. Silly, really, but awfully true....it feels like I'm going to fall over dead if someone knocks on my door...especially multiple times in the night!!! My housemate dealt with that side of things thank goodness. : )
