Trunk or Treat!

This past Sunday night, our church had Trunk or Treat. I always love this event. Everyone decorates their trunk with a theme (some of the favorites this year were the Polar Express, a school, a mad scientist lab, the Veggie Tales, etc.) and the kids get to go from trunk to trunk and get candy. It is so fun to see the kids in the cute costumes...and just as much fun to see all of the creative trunks people decorate. This year, Anna Lee dressed up as a ladybug and J.D. dressed up as a monkey. Anna Lee originally wanted to be a princess (surprise, surprise), but I was able to squeeze one more year of a non-princess costume out of her.
Anna Lee had even more fun this year, since she really understood the fact that she was going to get candy out of the deal. She was wired for a LONG time when she got home...there is NO telling how much candy she ate!

We decorated our trunk like a jungle this year, with a bunch of bananas around our little monkey. We passed the bananas out along with candy. J.D. did a great job sitting in the trunk, and was completely mesmerized by the bananas...and eventually the candy too.

We had so much fun with a bunch of our family getting to come on Sunday night. Kasey, GranDee and Pops, and Mom-Mom and Grandad were all able to be there with us. It made it even more fun!

But the happiest kid of all was this little one when we finally took his hot costume off. One can only be a cute monkey for so long.

More Halloween fun to come this week!

Love all the pics! Your banana trunk was really cute, but not as adorable as your darling kiddos!

Glad you enjoyed the Polar Express as well!
