The kids are all dressed up and ready to head to the church Trunk or Treat event on Saturday.
My little cowboy and cowgirl
My little heart babies were snow princesses
My sports nuts
These two didn't have a theme...they were just being buddies for the day
Lacking a horse...this was the best he could do
Then off we went to the church. Our church has a huge neighborhood event called Trunk or Treat. We park our cars in a circle and give out candy from our 'trunks' or the back of vans and trucks. It seems to grow every year--last year we had 700 kids and I think this year we had more. There is a bounce house for the little kids, lots of games and prizes for the other kids, pony rides, free hot dogs, cider and elephant ears.
Unfortunately, Molly quickly won one of these. Fortunately, it already died. (Don't tell her I'm so happy about it, will ya?)
The little kids have a variety of reactions to the peppy Alice in Wonderland. Kinda wondering what Jake looks so bummed about.
Wooo! Waiting in line for the ponies! Jeff is looking especially excited about this event.
"Oh yeah. I'm rockin' this costume. I even have real cowboy boots from Colorado, thanks to some hand-me-downs from my big brother, Ryan."
"Dad took the spurs off these boots or I'd be galloping this mare right now."
I'm sad to say that we came home with no less than THREE of these! Ack! We are down to two, but they still look pretty chipper, despite the cloudy water they are now swimming in. What in the world to they DO in that water that makes it so filthy in three hours? Never mind...don't tell me. I think I already know.
And the teen...our pride and joy. He is now a minor celebrity in our town for trick-or-treating in this costume. He spent hours perfecting a cornstarch and water substance to mimic milk, that he sprayed out of the udders to unsuspecting people.
And this little one is soooo excited because it's her birthday tomorrow. Do you think our kids are going to be on a major sugar overload?
