Trunk-or-Treat and All Hallows Night

Saturday night our ward had a Trunk-or-Treat and Chili Dinner. There was a great turn out and it was fun to see all the kiddos in costume. Daphne was not the only monkey in the bunch and she thought it was hilarious.  She chased him around the church. After the awesome chili, apple pie and a cake walk everyone headed outside for the real fun.


Some of the cars were dressed up really great and it was fun to go around and meet some of our ward members. We got some good candy too!

Last night was the big night and I was pretty excited about it. I think we found a new tradition in our family of going out to Chipolte for Halloween dinner. They do this deal that if you dress up you can get your entre for $2! So Johnny got dressed in his doctor "costume", I turned myself around (I wore all my clothing backwards) and Daphne turned into a monkey and we headed out. It was delish as always and on our way home we looked for trick-or-treaters. None were found so we waited at home for awhile then headed back out. Johnny found us a pretty good neighborhood. There were quite a few people out when we started and when we were done there were a ton! W got a pretty good amount of candy and Daphne did great. She doesn't really talk yet so no "trick or treats" were heard out of her, but she did say "bye" to some people. She was very interested in all the grown ups that were dresses up and she got very good at grabbing the candy out of the bowls and putting them in her basket.  

When we got home we took her down to show her to our landlords. They got a kick out of it and had a big bag of M&M's there waiting for her. They apparently were hopping we would come down. We found out our neighborhood is not into the trick-or-treating thing. No one came to our door. All in all it was a great Halloween and now I'm getting excited for the rest of the holidays!!! Hope everyone had a great night as well.
