Trunk or Treat

Yesterday, our church held it’s annual Trunk or Treat event. You read that right. I did say Trunk or Treat. Trunk or Treats are becoming quite popular. People decorate their cars and the kids are all in one safe location, and rather than going from house to h0use trick or treating, they go from car to car instead. So many cars were there all decorated for the day.

Larry is out of town visiting his mother, so I joined some friends and we decorated her car in a Hawaiian theme. I went as the punked out surfer chick and my friend Lauren was all decorated with leis and flowers. Mike, Lauren’s husband, and I were also some of the official photographers.

This is not Mike, it’s Allen. We took photos of each other taking photos.

Jonathan and Priscilla were all decked out as well. Jonathan was Luke Skywalker and Priscilla was Mary Poppins.

We had a lot of games, popcorn and fresh made cotton candy, as well as hot dogs for everyone who wanted them.

Jonathan, I mean Luke Skywalker, was helping with the games, while Priscilla, excuse me, Mary Poppins, was face painting.

We had planned on having about 300-350 kids, but we had almost 1000 instead. We ran out of candy a few times and had to make a few candy runs, but it was definitely a smashing success. Eadie, our Pastor’s mom, was in charge of getting all the candy to the cars.

We had all kinds of costumes. Some were very cute, others were super heroes and some were down right scary. But everyone had a great time. I took over 350 pictures, so needless to say, I am NOT going to share them all with you, but I will share some. There was A LOT of creativity all around, that’s for sure.

We also had a Police officer there giving out candy as well. One of my favorite pictures is this little junior police officer with the real Police officer, but then it is really difficult to pick favorites. All the kids were so cute.

As we were all having fun, handing out candy to everyone, Pastor Matthew was busy watching over his flock.

Halloween is for the kids; kids of all ages. We went through a ton of candy. Everyone had a great time, and those of us who worked the event all had a blast too, but boy were we all tired after wards. We were all talking about how tired we were today in church.

Whether you are trick or Treating or Trunk or Treating, or just partying things up, have a great time and be safe. Happy Halloween Everyone.
