Halloween was on a Sunday and trick or treating on the sabbath just doesn't sit well with me. On Saturday the 30th I was gone all day at the Warrior Dash. I arrived home 30 minutes before our ward held our annual Trunk or Treat party. This is where everyone from the church decorates the back of their car or truck and the kids run from trunk to trunk asking for treats. This was the only event this year that the kids would be dressing up for and it just didn't seem like it was worth the hassle of making some great costume or the cost of buying one. I just told the kids to be creative and think about what they could do. I think we were all happy with the simplicity of the end result.
Wes is too cool for school, no costume needed.
Garrett borrowed a gorilla costume from my dad. Still not sure how he got that thing to fit...
Drew decided that he could be a BYU football player
Brynne wanted to be a BYU cheerleader.
She cheered at each trunk for her candy
Until it just got too cold! She loves her cousin Jessie and little buddy Kylie!
While the adults got a little crazy, Brynne and the kiddos had fun getting their faces painted by Grandpa McCauley, bobbing for apples, and hanging out with the Skeleton family.
All in all it was a great night, even if it wasn't really Halloween!
