Trunk or Treat!

Our ward for church had their annual Chili Cook -Off (blech, I made soup instead) and Trunk or Treat this past Friday night.

This made it a crazy busy day but it was a good run through for the kids with their costumes!

The boys wanted to be Transformers but I talked them out of those $40 costumes - they were cowboys to go with Lauren's Indian Princess outfit.

I looked everywhere for cowboy boots, until one day the Costume Gods were smiling over me and Wal-Mart had 6 boxes of them waaaaaay back in the corner. Where I had looked the day before and there were NONE.

Can you believe that the ONLY two pairs they had in brown were exactly Graham and Greg's size?
A Halloween miracle!Lauren hated her headband. I might had to figure something else out for her pigtails.
She was so cute, she kept trying to give people candy instead of taking it! This is Graham on his 2nd or 3rd time around...
Some of the trunks were decorated so cute! There was a large turnout this year - which made it all the more fun.

Where's Greg? He was so tired that night he crawled right into our pillows and I found him buried in our bed!

That graham was hilarious. On his second trip to our car he held up his bucket and said "my dad said to fill it up".

I'm sorry, but did you just say "blech" to chili? Isn't that unnatural? The kids' costumes were/are too cute! I think that trunk or treat idea is brilliant!

I love that you were able to talk them out of commercial costumes - yours are SO much cuter!
