WHAT A NIGHT

Tonight was our big Trunk or Treat at church. Can you believe that this was my first time to a Trunk or Treat? I've just always chosen not to go in the past.

First of all, I had to go early to set up a game, so what a pleasant surprise when Erik walked in with Luke wearing his giraffe costume. I couldn't believe it! He kept it on all night like it was no big deal. You'll notice that he's wearing it over a bright orange shirt with a monster on it. That was the back-up in case the giraffe didn't work.


Well, HOLY MOLY, did Luke have a good time! He could care less about the candy. People kept trying to hand it to him, but he was too interested in the jack o'lanterns to notice or care. This car in particular was his favorite because it had music and a huge jack o'lantern. He kept running back to it and would dance like crazy in front of their car. He had everyone laughing, it was great. People kept passing by him dancing (which looks like a crazy person running in place) and saying, "Whoa, how much candy did that kid have??" And I was like "NONE! This is how he always is."

The missionaries had the back of their truck decorated. They handed out candy attached to pass-a-long cards. The middle pumpkin is the story of the iron rod from the Book of Mormon. Notice the "great and spacious building" behind it. I thought that was hilarious.

Another favorite of Luke's - the big scary inflatable thing that went in and out of the tombstone. He would wave hi at it each time it came up.

Don't be scared, it's just the ninja and professional diaper changer. I know, we're way cool. The great part about covering our faces is that we didn't have to smile for pictures or make pointless conversation at Halloween parties. It did make eating rather difficult though.

  3. so the best thing about luke's little giraffe costume is that i was wearing a frog costume exactly like it. my friend and i realized that what fits an entire toddler body will fit the torso of a relatively small adult. i'll have to post a photo but it's seriously the same costume.
