Wordless Wednesday (Halloween 2017)



  Every year even if we go to the same places Halloween is different.  The trunks are different at the Trunk or Treats, the festival events are different and even a trip though the neighborhood brings new experiences.  Regardless of all the candy the kids will remember what they were, who they were with and maybe how much they walked.  Candy cravings will fade and I can't wait.

    The hardest part of Halloween is not what candy to eat first, or which house to start at first.

It's what costume to wear!


The festivals are fun because they have so many activities and crafts to do.


Master Gardeners always have such fun crafts.  They glued different leaves on plates and the kids used their imagination to complete the picture. 


No lollipops for these ghosts. These were made from the Sweetgum Tree pods. 

Finale to our night was Trunk or Treat.  I can't say if there was a theme or not but, some of the trunks are so fun no theme is necessary.  


It's extra fun when people match the cars! Hello Mario where's Luigi?


This was my favorite!  Such minimal work but a huge statement!


We went to the circus.


We didn't touch the jellyfish.


Emoji's are a language everyone knows.


Special appearance by the Golden Girls.


An interactive trunk. I-Spy!


This was the most elaborate car. The starship enterprise.


4 pumpkins brought this yellow brick road together.


Pumpkins were not going to be showed up by some cars!

                

                

  This fun was the weekend before the big day so we had days of Halloween fun!  How did you spend you Halloween or last few days of October?  Did you attend a fall festival?

    1. Last year was our first time visiting trunk or treats. I think the cars that participate probably just get better.

  3. We took our kids trick or treating for a hour. Then headed back home to give away candy to other kids. My kids had a blast.

    1. I think we are going to get to that point too. We get a lot and really you only need so much. Plus my daughter wants to hand out candy.

  4. I wish we did Halloween here in Australia - it looks like so much fun! My partner and I just stayed in watching scary movies on Netflix haha, that's as Halloween-y as it was going to get for us. :P
    This looks like such a fun way to do Halloween with a young family, I'm glad y'all had fun. :)

  5. Halloween is such a fun "holiday"! I'd like to visit the USA during this time exclusively to celebrate Halloween! We are living in South Africa and bought a bunch of candy; not one kid came! So sad, as it looks so, so fun!

  25. I did go to a few Halloween things with my daughter that were very fun. Although I didn't get to do much on the night. My daughter was with her mother for that.

    1. Our trunk or treats were the weekend before so they were busier with everyone that has weekends off. I saw more people and kids out for it then on Halloween night.
