We had Trunk or Treat and our annual Chicken Stew at church on Sunday.
(Chicken Stew needs to be capitalized because, well, it is just that important of an event round here)
It really is one of my favorite church events of the year. We always have a big crowd come out for it and it is so much fun to see everyone pitch in to help make it a good night. I usually start putting pressure on myself to get a family themed costume together around March and think on it all summer. This year, it wasn't to hard to get it all together and the kids loved it! They dress up in their own costumes for Halloween night but for this event, they will pretty much let me put them in whatever I want.
We had a hayride and bonfire and Sarah Faith went on her first hayride! She wasn't to sure about it (as with most things she has never done before), but she sat on my lap and loosened up about halfway though. She did look up at me at one point and say, " Mama , where we going?" I guess her little brain was trying to figure out what in the world was up with 30 of us piled on hay putting around the neighborhood behind a tractor.
