Trunk-Or-Treat!

This year we were asked to be in charge of our ward's Chili Cook-Off and Trunk-or-Treat. We've never been to a trunk-or-treat before, but since we were in charge of it, we thought we'd go. :) The whole party went really well. We had lots of people bring chili for the chili cook-off, and lots of people dressed up, which is always fun. Steve and I were a little worried we would be the only adults dressed up, but we weren't.

A little five-year-old girl in our ward named Chloe had just watched The Wizard of OZ for the first time the night before the party, so she was a little star struck with our family's costumes. She kept asking her mom if she could eat dinner with us, but when I went over to say hello, she wouldn't say anything to me because she was so nervous. We did get a cute picture of us together.

After dinner we went outside to trunk-or-treat, and lots of people participated. We pushed the boys in their stroller since they are still not very good at walking and even less good at walking where we want them to walk. Plus Steve's costume (although really awesome if I do say so myself) made it difficult for him to move and hold babies.

The boys even got to try some candy, although we didn't know it at the time. We let each baby hold a piece of candy thinking they couldn't open it, but both of them chewed right through the wrappers. So Erik had some Twix and David enjoyed a Tootsie Pop. We all had a very good time, until poor baby David fell out of his stroller and bumped his head really hard on the parking lot. He was crying so hard, but thankfully once we got him home and in the bathtub, he felt much better. Hopefully actual Halloween won't be so traumatic.

This is so funny! I was just saying today that I could get into Halloween if it could be a family affair. For example, Heather could be Dorothy, Shelby could be Glenda the good witch of the North, I could be (am) the wicked witch of the West, the boys could be the Lion and the Scarecrow, and Chris could be the tin man!

I love the themed costumes! You guys look great! I also love that your husband is a good sport and would dress up like the tin man! My husband always wants to be the most random things and never wants to do a couples type theme! Looks like you guys are fitting right in in your new ward!

So you are implying that your children are a coward and a simpleton; to do that you must be heartless.
At least Kristi's looking hot!
(can you tell this comment is all Kirk so far)
So who got the meatiest chili, otherwise known as the stuffed cow with the golden fork stuck in it?
