Our ward had a "Trunk-or-Treat" party on Saturday the 30th. You'll have to know that unlike some states, CA does not find it important to keep the Sabbath Day holy, and incourages all sorts of hoolighans to run a muck! Quite like the one you see above. Our Salvation Army had a swell deal on everything...HALF OFF. So I decided to throw something together for Dan. At the party he got a bit of guesses at his costume: McGyver, Joe Dirt. trailer trash. MacGruber. We were just going with 80's TV. He sure was a good sport about it!
Here's our littlest bug!
I'm trying to be an 80's girl...and so is my dear friend Michelle! I think we look great!
We emptied the bowl in the picture with Layne. It was overflowing with candies to give out from the back of our trunk for the ward party! The girls had a blast and ended up filling the bowl right back up! UGH! so much junk! Well, we have had a tradition for the last 3 years that "The Candy Fairy" comes on Halloween night, and takes the candy that you leave out for her. And in exchange she leaves a toy. We find that we eat less junk and the girls are better behaved than they would have been with a punchbowl full of candy coursing through their tiny bodies! And I'm happy to report that even though the candy is still in the house in a very hidden location....Dan and I have hardly had a thing!
Happy Halloween.....or rather Happy Fall/November!
