Our ward always has such a fun trunk or treat party, and this year they held it on Halloween. I love going to the church and seeing all of our friends dressed up with their trunks all decked out, enjoying carnival games and hotdogs.
This year, despite the fact that I would only have two weeks in which to actually complete the costumes, I decided to have our whole family dress up as Raggedy Ann and Andy. It wasn't long into the project before I started to feel completely overwhelmed and to wonder what in the world I had been thinking to take this project on with 3 small kids and so little time. Not smart. So, after quite a few late nights, great expense, two "leisure suites," three dresses, three pinfores, three bloomers, two hats, and five wigs later, our costumes were complete. (With nary a minute to spare, finishing touches being added right before heading out the door.) If only our ward held a family costume contest, I'm pretty sure we would have won.
I am relieved to be finished of this horrendous project, and sad to report the neglect of my kids and complete demolition of my house by projects end. I have even gotten behind in my blog--I have several posts I'll have to do out of order. I have determined that next year we can buy our costumes like everyone else. :)
