Trunk or Treat 2012

Our church had their annual Trunk-or-Treat this past Saturday.  Always a fun event. And always neat to see how the church body can work together to do a community event.

This year we went with a superhero themed trunk. 
Specifically, Marvel superheroes. 
(For those non-superhero buffs (a.k.a. many normal people), there are 2 big superhero divisions.....Marvel and DC Comics.  DC Comics can claim superhero characters like Batman and Superman. Marvel has names like Spiderman, Fantastic Four, Captain America, X-Men, etc.)

Yeah! We managed to get a family photo this year!   Adam has responsibilities during this whole event  and the boys and I man the trunk.  For those that need clarification: Landon is Captain America, Tate is Spiderman, Adam is Hawkeye, and I am Black Widow.  All of them except Spiderman were in the recent "Avengers" movie. Adam, being the superhero buff that he is (Really, he can tell you more than is necessary), assured me that Spiderman could be included with our Avenger group because he was really part of the Avengers team in the comics and cartoons. 

Don't worry. The red hair was just a spray-on adventure.  Came out just fine after 2 washes.
My bathroom is covered in a pink dust though.  Sorry to Adam's innocent bystanding toothbrush.  

One of my favorite pictures that Landon has drawn. He put a lot of concentration into it.

This was the first year that there was a prize involved with trunk decoration.  Community members that came through voted for their favorite.  So fun to see the creativity of our church members!
We took a very nice 2nd place!  We were beat out by a car that was turned into a castle.  Yep, a castle.  From the Wizard of Oz.  Complete with a melted wicked witch, Dorothy, a Tin-man, a Scarecrow, and I believe I even saw a flying monkey! Anytime you can turn your vehicle into something other than a vehicle....well, that's pretty cool.

Now to start thinking about next year's theme! 

And since we've been doing this blog for several years, I linked back to the past year's for your viewing enjoyment:

Fantastic job, but what else would I expect from my real super heroes family. Loved, loved, loved the pictures! Now, let's get that newest to be super grandson to make his grand entrance soon. Love you all.

Rob and I were headed to Blanford Nature Center to walk the pup on Saturday night and we drove past your church (road between your church and the golf course) and we could see your giant Spiderman through the trees/houses/yards in between us and the parking lot! I said to Rob: "I think that's Willis' van! I read something about super heroes!" Glad it was a success!

Steph, I loved that you were able to see Spiderman from the road! That's awesome! :) You must be really close to our neighborhood. I talk walks on the back Blandford trails and enter from the side streets that back up to it.
