Trunk or Treat!

[Okay, first of all, this Windows Live Writer is great for posting to my blog, but it makes the photos turn out horribly! Lately I’ve been uploading them to Flickr first, then posting a link from there in the blog so that the original color would turn out. But I was just too tired to do that tonight, so I apologize in advance for the awfully washed out photos. I promise, they’re better on my computer!]

Our church had a great activity last night and the kids had a blast!

E went as a vampire:


And W went as a fire-breathing dragon:LBL_8580LBL_8589LBL_8591LBL_8597LBL_8603LBL_8604LBL_8611LBL_8646LBL_8656LBL_8671

This little one fell asleep on the way to the church! I suppose that’s what happens when you miss your afternoon nap because you’re too busy getting your face painted green.


Two little monsters waiting for their hot dogs and chili.


My little dragon had lots of fun digging in the dirt in the baseball diamond.


This little guy was the cutest Goofy I’ve ever seen! He and his parents always dress up and they really have fun with it. One of these years we’ll do a family costume.


Here’s his mom, straight out of “The Birds”!


Here’s his dad, Indiana Jones!


And I did get a little family picture of them.



W doing his scariest “ROAR!”


Some of the cute young women in our ward.


In line to play some of the games they had going on. E was getting done with the whole picture-taking thing. W doesn’t care, he’ll still smile and say, “Cheeeeeeese!” for me when I ask him. I figure I’ve got a few more months until that enthusiasm wears off. :)


Trying out the skills game that the missionaries were manning. He won a prize, even though he missed the shot.


My friend Kathryn, who made a really cute Princess Leia! (And again, the color on this is terrible but the actual shot is not!)


Our awesome family picture #1:


Our more awesome family picture #2:


The boys coming out of the haunted house that we realized a little too late was too scary for W. He was freaked the rest of the night. E, of course, came out and said (loudly), “That wasn’t even scary! I’m not scared of anything!” Ah, E. That’s totally you.


Here are some more of our friends. Captain Jack:


And a Sith! The best part about his costume was that he’s normally a blondie so he was really hard to recognize!


And E with one of his Primary teachers. I was bummed that it didn’t focus well, but it was pitch black outside so it was tough to find any light to even be able to focus with. Ah well.


At the end of the night, when the candy bags were full and the face paint was pretty much rubbed off, we decided to head home. All in all, it was a great night and I’m glad we got to go!


Happy Halloween!!

Laurel! They looked so cute! I have never seen a dragon riding a razor scooter so that was pretty cool!
