Halloween has come and gone but I did want to post about it. We had a fun filled October decorating everything from the house to the car to the husband! (Always a good sport)
First the house. Kristin gave me the idea last year to do the monsters in the windows. Since I have six small windows on the front of my house it was fun and easy way to bring on Halloween.
Next on the schedule was the ward Trunk-or-treat. Since I opened my big fat mouth about the horrible food last year I was put in charge of dinner for 200. That ought to teach me right!? I settled on pulled pork, mac n cheese and baked beans. We had a great turnout. The kids all chose to be minions so Bjorn and I were Gru and Lucy. It turned out really cute, if I do say so myself!
The decorating and dress up didn't stop there. Oh no, we still had the school parade where the principal wad also dressed as a minion. We dressed up the car for the trunk-or-treat and we carved our pumpkins for the porch. Then last, but certainly not least, we actually trick-or-treated around our complex for 10 min. Once around the loop is 47 homes, half of which are not home but the other half give most generously. The kids had a great Halloween holiday.
