Trunk or Treat 2010: Hippies, Toy Story, Lego Mania, Princesses and More
Here's a sampling from our church's spin on Trunk or Treat. (We do more than just trunks. We do props and games, and much more. Love it.) Our care group chose to do the LEGO theme. We tied for second, which surprised me, considering we were the only group not in costume. (One petite gal in our group DID dress up--thanks, Kris!), but the rest of us didn't. I would've had to wear a Samsung dryer box, which would've stripped the E-G-O away from my LEGO look. I guess we had a really kid-friendly theme, complete and bean-bag toss.
Toy Story came in first, not surprisingly. The people in their group are over-the-top creative. One of the guys in our group said, half-jokingly, 'Yeh, but they didn't have a trunk. They had a Corvette for Barbie and Ken, but Corvettes don't have trunks!" Oh, do I detect a bit of sibling rivalry??? :)
Two of my older kids, Steve and Sarah, belong to a college age group that did Music of the Decades. Groovy, man.
We had a science theme, a farm theme (complete with live chickens and goats), Disney princesses, a diner, a camping theme, and many other trunks decked out for a night for community contact and fun. We had over 900 guests some of whom indicated they wanted to know more about Christianity and our church. That makes it all worthwhile.
A middle-aged disciple of Jesus Christ, I'm also the wife of the same great guy for over 26 years. We have four beautiful children (three of whom are "grown and gone" and one who is halfway there). We also have two gorgeous daughters-in-law and a rambunctious Golden Retriever in our family. My hobbies include writing, reading, teaching, sewing, making art, traveling, watching songbirds, and socializing with people who love to laugh. My blog includes a smattering of it all, but mostly I love to talk about my family.
