Trunk Or Treat and the Flash
Last night was my ward Trunk or Treat. Our ward (congregation) has only been doing this for 3 years. A trunk or treat fro those who don't know is where people get together decorate their cars and pass out candy to this kids. I think it was developed for kids to have a safe place to trick or treat and be able to get a substantial amount of candy. Last year was really popular because Halloween fell on a Sunday. I remember when I was a kid and not getting to go trick or treating on a Sunday. I wish someone had done that for me. Like I needed more candy.
My family likes to dress in themes, or maybe its just me because I am the one making the costumes. The first year D was Steve and E was blue from blues clues. Last year my husband wasn't able to go, but my boys both wanted to be Robin Hood and I was Maid Marion. My husband already has our theme for next year but I am not going to share it with you because its a secret. I don't want anyone to steal his idea. Its just that good.
This year however I was too tired to make costumes. So I bought them. The boys needed pjs and costumes so I decided to kill 2 birds with one stone and bought Incredible Pjs. They came complete with mask and they were cheaper than the actual costume. Just before the actual activity I was looking for Halloween decorations and we found Harry Potter costumes for $12. They came complete with robe, wand glasses and scar tattoo. I couldn't make a costume for that cheap. My boys batted the puppy dog eyelashes at my mom and twisted her rubber arm, like that was hard, and she bought them for the boys. So last night I had one Harry Potter and one Dash. I was peer pressured into dressing up and since I had nothing I put my husbands Pjs on gave myself bed head and put dark circles under my eyes, if I had a snuggly and a doll I would have been a new mom, I went as insomnia. My husband took his old work shirt that looks like a baseball shirt and a baseball hat and bat. We were not a theme this time because I didn't sew, but I'm ok with that.
As we were helping clean up I found Jenthemoms camera and my husband and I took some pictures, one of us kissing. Mwaaahahaha! I crack myself up.
