We did it! Our first successful Halloween with Nana!
So what is Trunk or Treat? It was really cool! Cars lined up in the parking lot and parents decorated the trunks with streamers, fake webbing and Halloween decorations. Some parents were dressed up but most weren’t. Luckily I had the foresight to throw some fake spider webbing and a few decorations in the trunk because soe of these parents really put some work into these trunks. They were really creative with a small space.
The preschool had some games for toddlers such as a pumpkin patch. The pumpkins were small enough that a 2 year old could carry with two hands. Somehow , the kids made a game of taking all the pumpkins out of the grass and lining them on the sidewalk. It was pretty amazing that they all just looked around and fell in line doing the same thing while us parents just stood and watched them. They also had a sticker wall, a bean bag toss, and a rolling pumpkin race. After about 30 minutes of that, the directors said the kids could trick or treat. Nana and I went around to the cars, while Wood held down the trunk and passed out candy.
Everyone said how cute Nana was and we were just beaming. She was pretty cute, if I must say so myself. I kind of thought she was the cutest but I kept that to myself. Plus, I’m happy that she can wear all of those clothes at a different time. Five dollars each at Old Navy. High five to myself. #frugal
We walked around to all the trunks and said the requisite “trick or treat” and “thank you.” Nana ate a few pieces of candy, ran around with her friends, giggled and laughed and jumped and ate a few more pieces of candy. Then it was over. One hour and done. Awesome!
I’m pretty sure we have convinced Wood that dressing up for Halloween isn’t associated with the occult. Plus I saw my nieces and nephews in costumes so err uhm.. I guess we’ll take these holidays one at a time.
