Ward Trunk or Treat
A few days before Halloween, our family attended our ward's Trunk or Treat.
The kids were anxious to show off their costumes and were very excited to attend the party.
A yummy dinner was served and then the kids went trick-or-treating through the isles of tables to allow the elderly in our ward to pass out their candy.
Next, the kids went outside to go trunk-or-treating at all of the spooky cars! The decorations on the cars were very festive and fun.
Brandon was pretty pleased with the way he used dry ice and spider webs to make our trunk spooky!
It was such a great Halloween night with friends!
One of my favorite things of the night was that Lucy called Brandon "reindeer" all night. Brandon was the reindeer (Sven) and I was Elsa. Even when Brandon asked Lucy to call him daddy after the party, she slipped up and called him reindeer again. Lucy instantly covered her mouth, laughed and said sorry dad. It was so cute!
It was the perfect way to start off the Halloween weekend.
"If you are still in the process of raising children, be aware that the tiny fingerprints that show up on almost every newly cleaned surface, the toys scattered about the house, the piles and piles of laundry to be tackled will disappear all too soon and that you will—to your surprise—miss them profoundly." -President Thomas S Monson
Sisters, there is something inspiring and sublime about the little forget-me-not flower. I hope it will be a symbol of the little things that make your lives joyful and sweet. Please never forget that you must be patient and compassionate with yourselves, that some sacrifices are better than others, that you need not wait for a golden ticket to be happy. Please never forget that the “why” of the gospel of Jesus Christ will inspire and uplift you. And never forget that your Heavenly Father knows, loves, and cherishes you.—President Dieter F. Uchtdorf
