Trunk or Treat

The day after Halloween our church had a Trunk or Treat for all the kids, basically parishoners brought candy and opened up the back of their cars and trick or treaters from church came to each car! It was a lot of fun.
After the trick or treating we went into church and awaited the winners of the age group costume contests and the pumpkin carving contests and had a yummy snack of cookies and cocoa. After our snack we headed back outside for 1 more go around to the trunks, this time the girls (with candy bowls already entirely too full) decided to pass out the candy.

Lindsay was convinced all day that her updated costume of Tinkerbell riding a unicorn was going to win hands down, I tried to tell her that she might and she might not, but she was totally convinced. Well she did win, this is her 2nd win, she won as Cookie in 2005 and Lydia won last year as the tortoise to Lindsay's hare. The prize is always a half-pound Hershey bar, just what we needed, more chocolate :D
We (I) also won for carved pumpkins, you can see the winning pumpkin in my previous post, the cat in the window pumpkin. We won a pumpkin pie and a bag of hershey kisses. I froze the pie to share with my family in a few weeks since Eric and the girls don't enjoy it and I really dont need a whole pie plastered to my butt.
Here they are going to some of the cars, one had a fun spider ball toss.

Here is Linds and during the costume contest (Lyd wouldnt stand still for a pic during her age group), and Tigger isnt in Linds' age group, he ran into stand with the big kids. Her competition was 2 batmen, a storm tropper and Winnie the Pooh.

Cookie enjoying a cookie, some lady at church said she heard that Sesame St. is turning Cookie Monster into Carrot monster, well if that's true that is the dumbest thing I have ever heard.

Here they are passing out their treats to lots of kids!
