Trunk or Treat
We had a blast at our ward Trunk or Treat on Friday night (Oct 23). Of course this means that baby Riley has not come yet, but you've got to enjoy the waiting time, right!!!
Here are some pictures that show our masterpieces. Many thanks to Grandma Dee who inspired the penguin theme with Daniel's costume, and Grandma Cheryl for helping create the Antarctic scape, adult costumes and manning the car ( we passed out flavor ices--in keeping with the theme, of course) so I could go trunk or treating with Daniel. (Mom and I enjoyed hours cutting, gluing, sewing, painting...you know, creating. And, we did it mostly with things we already had around the house--ok, and a trip to Hobby Lobby and Salvation Army.)
It was so fun to see all of the ward members dress up and play in the spirit of Halloween. Daniel never said "trick or treat," but he would sign "please" before he got the candy, put the candy in his bucket and then sign "thank you." I was so proud of his good manners. :)
And, of course he enjoyed the chocolate (another sign he knows well.)
By the way, Clinton scored a goal at his soccer game today--he played excellently. This makes two goals for the season thus far. They were down players so the team ended up running the entire game. Every time he would run, people on the sidelines would comment on his long legs and stride and how quickly he would move. It's definitely one of his strengths. I'm glad he's enjoying the league; we're enjoying watching him play.
When we got home, Daniel, Grandma Wouden and I went for a brisk walk--I'm doing all I can to help baby Riley make her appearance. :)
