Trunk-or-Treat

Sorry that I didn't snap any great pictures of the boys! It's not easy! They don't sit still and we needed to go get our parking spot at Trunk-or-Treat!
Phew. What a phenomenal turn-out! Our church has done Trunk-or-Treat the past couple of years, but they ramped up the promotional items quite a bit and added a bunch of additional indoor activities this year. GREAT turn-out! Most faces I didn't recognize - which means they don't go to our church regularly. I was running out of candy before the first 1/2 an hour was up! The bowl got replenished several times thankfully. I had to come up with a way to keep the boys "caged." For events like this, Adam is usually very busy running around doing things and I know it's up to me to handle these two crazy kids. I might've trusted Landon to stay close by me at all times, but Tate is a runner. This solution seemed to work. They did get to go around the loops of cars with their buckets, but otherwise spent the most of the 2 hours in the back of the van like this while I handed out candy. I had to keep them sugared up to keep them happy. Lots of people said it was a cute idea and strangers even asked to take pictures. Hmmmm....now what to do for next year?

And today was also Adam's 31st birthday! Oh, what a gift he is to me! Oh wait, it's his birthday - he's supposed to get a gift. Anyways. He's wonderful. I'm such a blessed girl to have him as my husband.

Very cleaver idea with the boys! Looks like they enjoyed being the car without being in their car seats. Happy Birthday Adam!

That's awesome! I have an idea for next year. Instead of a petting zoo make it a jail and dress the boys in orange jump suits.

Thanks for the pics and I think that was a great idea to keep the boys "caged in". It kept you and them happy. And they look so cute.
Jon, I am not sure I like the idea of the little boys in orange jail suits. :)
