Church Trunk or Treat 2012

Saturday night was the church trunk or treat and the weather was perfect! Not too cold, not too hot, not too windy. Ella was off with her friends in no time and I left the candy by our car and walked around with Addie and Preston. They had fun running into their little buddies as well and once we hit all the cars in the parking lot were happy to sit in the back of the car and eat, and hand out, their candy (we ran out pretty fast, I think partly because I left our bowls sitting there unmanned :-).
As it got darker the party moved inside the building and after walking around for a little while looking for Ella, I headed in with Addie and Preston assuming Ella had already gone inside. I got the littles some food and still hadn't found Ella so I went back out to find her and was still not having any luck. Then I turned a corner and found her crying and scared. Poor Ella Bella! One friend had left and the other had gone inside with her dad and she went back to our car but I wasn't there. I got her calmed down and got her some food. We did the cake walk until everyone had won a prize and then I turned around and Preston was gone. I couldn't find him anywhere. I was worried he would go back outside thinking he could get more candy. After a few minutes I saw a nice lady helping him look for me and he was happy as could be :-). We were all together once again and quickly left before Addie could get lost too! It's hard to be a single parent, that is for sure. I don't know how my mom did so many events with us all with my dad out of town all the time.
Overall though, it was lots of fun and they had decorated the church super cute this year. After 2 late and busy nights, Sunday morning we all slept in and enjoyed our late church schedule by relaxing and watching Madagascar 3 for the 3rd time that weekend!
Every year I intend to take some good pictures of the kids in their costumes, and every year we end up rushing to finish our make-up and get to our events on time. One of these times we'll get ready early and do it! (and a few of these pics are from Jen, thanks!)

Addie went ahead of us for a little while and then came running back yelling,
"MOM, LOOK at all the candy I got!!!"

Mitt and Barack were both there...and they both looked a little freaky :-).
Barack was making sure everyone was getting an equal share of the candy though.
