Trunk or Treat!

Last Friday,  I got to experience my very first "Trunk or Treat" at H's school.

They started off with a Parade of Costumes, then the kids hit the parking lot to load up on delicious goodies.

Someone (who shall remain nameless to protect the innocent) had mentioned to me earlier in the week, "Hey, Mrs. Smith, don't worry about it if you can't get your car decorated or make the homemade goodies like the stay-at-home moms.  I know you're a working mom, so we're just excited you're coming."

Excuse me?

Um...Challenge Accepted.

We went with a "safari, jungle theme."

Complete with Mommy Smith as Zookeeper.  
Might I mention, I was one of two mommies in costume. 

I'll say it once, and I'll say it again - you must have no fear of looking silly as a Mommy.

I know one little giraffe who loved Mommy in costume.
(And also tried to make new friends with a Pumpkin.)

Very excited to have Paw Paw and Dee Dee joining for the event. 

We passed out homemade s'more goodie bags... 

And "Have a Wild Halloween!" animal cracker goodie bags.

 And someone strutted his stuff as the cutest giraffe ever, racking up lots of sweet goodies.
Which I've really enjoyed snacking on this weekend.

Happy Trunk or Treat!
Onward to Halloween!


  1. I don't know why I found this so funny...hilarious. And impressive. And I want a smore goodie bag.

  2. It's because you imagined me staying up at night curling that black and orange ribbon. Which I did. Despite intense finger cramping.

  3. LOVE. IT. Never underestimate a former sorority girl. We can do it all, on little or no sleep, with a lipsticked-smile on our face. Everything looked precious! My little man had the same costume.
