Trunk-or-Treat







Last night we did trunk-or-treating at the church.  They had games set up in the gym that the kids got to play.  They had a lot of fun.  At first Olivia was a little wary of playing the games but once she figured out that she got a candy afterwards she was dragging me all over the gym playing all the games.  After about an hour of playing games we got to trunk-or-treat.  It had started raining so we didn't actually get to go out to the cars, they just came in and lined the hallways and set up in the class rooms and the kids went from person to person.  The kids didn't seem to mind but I felt bad for the people who had decorated their cars and trunks.  Anyways, it was fun for everyone.  Last night as we were putting the kids to bed, I went in to Olivia's room to help her and found her in the floor with her bag of candy.  She was planning on taking it to bed with her!  She got very upset when I took it away.  Can you imagine - a little girl with a bag full of chocolates and sticky things in her bed!  Her problem would be that she had so much candy she would open one and take a bite or a lick and then put it down and want to try the next piece.  She would've been totally stuck to her bed the next morning - that and completely wired for the next week!  I love this age when they first figure out trick-or-treating.  Maddi's first time we went to one door and they gave her two big handfuls of candy.  Her eyes got huge and she said "I love you!" and went running off the porch.  That brought many laughs.  Zane would get a piece and then want to sit down and eat it straight away.  They have all done funny things and I love watching them figure it all out and get so excited.
