TRUNK* OR* TREAT
This year we changed our Halloween tradition.... which you know can be hard for me! But we did it and had fun. Here is a little about our memories from Halloween 2012.
Our church hosts a huge outreach Trunk or Treat project. They serve around 500 neighborhood kids who come through our parking lot to visit the festive trunks, load up on candy, and then enjoy a warm chili dinner. Cicely and I decorated the "candy store" and dressed up to greet the trick or treaters. We had fun but did miss seeing our own little ones enjoy their first trunk and treat--- next year, Rob and Greg will be passing out the candy! Can't wait to see what they dress up as :)
Daddy and his little Minnie Mice- he was super dad being the solo parent with 2 little trick or treaters!
Mommy and the little candy lovers!
Our fancy little pumpkin- Ivy insisted that she didn't care about much else, but our Jack-O-Lantern needed eyelashes. My super carving husband, gave his sweet girls a pumpkin with long lashes! We all enjoyed this smiley face.

Dress Up Day at School
Ivy's dress up day was a community helper theme! All the community helpers participated in a parade to show off their costumes. Ivy choose to be a nurse with the inspiration of her Nana. Nana even brought her home a real stethoscope to wear. Ivy loved checking her class mate's "heart beeps" all day long!
Tula's class had a fall party to celebrate the holiday! They all dressed up, got to paint, eat yummy treats, and play games. Tula was a purple fairy (that we already had in our dress up tub)! I know this girl is a mess so I knew I needed to put her in something that already had a little bit of wear and tear. And of course, she was absolutely smitten to be a fairy at school and Minnie at night!
