Trunk or Treat

We had the BEST time at Trunk or Treat at our church parking lot.

Jasper was Michael Phelps, and I was his #1 fan. His USA track suit and 8 tiny gold medals were a big hit!

I don't really have a lot of portable Halloween decor to decorate our van with, so I went with the theme our costumes and decked our van out in red, white and blue.

We had flags in the back, flags on the side of the van and flags waving in full glory on top (it was a slightly breezy night). We stood out like a sore thumb, but we did receive compliments from many of the younger trunk-or-treaters. We were the "non scary" car.

My friend Becky wore her "lady in waiting" costume. Becky and I handed out candy together from my van. With our flags flying high, everyone thought that Becky was Betsy Ross.

We named our van "America: Past & Present" -- which sounds more like a parade float theme. Mike joined us in a camping chair on the side of the van and we all had a great time!
