October 31st has always been one of those days that is filled with wonder for the little kids. Getting to dress up and get a giant bucket of candy. . .what more could a kid want!
Julian had an early release day at school, so when he got home we began the punkin’ carving. After trying to talk him into a cute little face, we settled on a bat to go with his Batman costume. I enjoyed hearing all the “ooh gross!” comments as we scooped the seeds and muck out of the pumpkin. Even Jaden started saying “oooooh Gross!”
It actually looked like a bat!
After Tom got home from work, we dressed the kids in their costumes and headed for my Parent’s church for a Trunk or Treat. They have a really great outreach ministry to the community each year. All the cars were lined up and you walked the rows and received candy from people out of their trunks. They served popcorn, hotdogs, nachos and pop, too!
After that, we went to Grandma and Grandpa Henderson’s and then to Mom and Dad’s.
We stumbled back home tired and very full of sugar. It was fun!
