Trick or Treating...Round Two (AKA Trunk or Treat)


Preparing for trick or treating...



What I Learned From Hosting Trunk or Treat (for the second year in a row)

1. Never say "No" to the offer of help, in any form.
2. Always say "Thank you" to all who helped.
3. Expect the unexpected, like no lights in the parking lot!
4. Turn up the crockpots a little bit...the ton of nacho cheese probably won't burn and you would have had hot nacho cheese.
5. Microphones are way better then yelling, even if some people thing it's funny to see/hear you yell.
6. Plan for one hundred, but only about 50 when it comes to nacho sauce.
7. My children's costumes will never be as cool as some of these creative mama's.
8. Kids are crazy!
9. Relax...it'll all come together and really, how hard is it to screw up hotdogs, nachos, Little Debbies, and candy???

3 Words to brighten my day:

Cute pictures! I thought it turned out perfectly. (Who needs light to trick-or-treat by anyway?)

Cute pics. Do all of the churches have that same couch?? Glad to see Bart is sporting his team. :)

We had fun too. Wish I could have helped more.
