Trunk-or-Treat

We had a smashing "chili cook-off / trunk-or-treat" at the church for Halloween. It was great. It's one of the few times we see these straight-laced Mormon folks go wild. Everyone generally goes all-out in choosing a themed costume for the family. We went as Peter Pan, Wendy, and Tinkerbell. The chili was delicious, especially the Sweet and Spicy. My fav!

And this year's haul was astounding. Brooklyn was struggling to carry her bucket around by the end. Last year it was too cold so most people ditched the trunk-or-treat. But this year PLENTY of people got into the spirit. I must say, having a new car with a hatch back makes the trunk-or-treat portion so much nicer. I got to sit down and pass out candy and set up some spooky decorations.

For a night-cap, we went to the Thorpe's house to watch Dark Water. It was one part scary, two parts lame. But that's ok. It was fun to at least try to be scared for Halloween.

You guys look great and I was always into big candy hauls so I could give the seminary kids your candy to keep them awake. That bucket of candy looks like to weighs more than Brooklyn.

Awesome Pumpkins! how long did those take you? Brooklyn has too many costumes to choose from, how fun for her to get to play dress up later!

NICE TIGHTS BRAD! :) Only a Daddy of one, almost two could wear those with pride. :) Brooklyn is so cute in her outfit. We watched Watcher in the Woods on Halloween night...one part Disney two parts lame..;)

Great job on the family costumes! I was very impressed that Brad went all out for the tights too! And I thought your pumpkins were awesome! I'm definitely going to remember your ideas for the future!

Hey Celeste! Hello from the Konchars! I was reading a new (to me) blog recently and in one of the older posts a certain Celeste B had left a comment--on Christopher Clark's blog. He is hilarious. Was he one of your professors of theater or something? Your sweet girl is a little angel straight from heaven. Good luck on the next one.

You guys looked so good! We didn't dress up this year. Too much work for a very pregnant woman. Glad you had a fun time too! See you in a few weeks!!
