Trunk-or-Treat

We did not do any trick-or-treating last night (Halloween night) because my sister is in from medical school and we did an early celebration for my Granny's birthday. It was fine with us because we NEVER have any trick-or-treaters at our house and after working all day I am just not in the spirit. Jonah is still too little to know what he's missing out on anyways......and he can't even eat the candy!!! LOL

Anyhow, so our big Halloween celebration was at Church on Sunday night. Our church always does an informal Trunk-or-Treat where everyone that wants to decorates their trunks up and the Church kiddos go around and get candy. This year with our new building and parking lot, it seemed to be a larger turn-out than any year before. The kids all seemed to have a great time too.

We knew Jonah was going to be a dragon for Halloween early on. We had a few boxes of boys clothes give to us by a family member and this dragon costume from Old Navy was in there! You can't beat free costumes! So Michael and I decided to bring out our inner kid and dress up too this year. I was the princess and Michael was the knight. I used an old bridesmaid dress from 5 years ago (can't believe it still fit after having a baby) and we bought some red satin fabric to make Michael's costume. We used craft foam tomake our hats and just kind of crafted the rest of our outfits. We didn't want to spend tons of money in something that you wear for an hour or so.

Here are the pics from that night and several of the most decorated trunks.
