Trick or Treat!

We're looking forward to taking Kate around our neighborhood in her kitty costume when we go trick or treating tonight, but we've already had a lot of costume-and-candy fun this week! On Wednesday, we went to Trunk or Treat at Matt's parents' church, where Matt grew up and still knows a lot of folks.

Our friends John and Nancy also serve there, and Kate loved hanging out with her friend Becca--even if she was a little confused about why she was there and everybody was dressed up in strange outfits.
 Aren't these little kitty and Saint Bernard puppy (and their mommies) just so cute?
 They gathered all the kids in the sanctuary for a group picture beforehand. Kate's there between the Toy Story alien and Shaggy (whose whole family dressed up as the Scooby Doo gang and decorated their van like the Mystery Machine).
Once Kate got outside and discovered she could run around and check out all the different costumes and cars, she got pretty into it! The candy was secondary, I think, though she loved putting things in and taking things out of her basket.
 If you're not familiar with the notion of Trunk or Treat, it's basically trick or treating around a parking lot, where people pass out candy from the trunks of their cars. There was a prize for best-decorated trunk, so people went all out with cobwebs and scary music, etc.

Inspired by their own little Saint Bernard, Becca's family made the back of their SUV into a little puppy-pound, full of stuffed dogs (and Becca, whenever she felt like taking a break to start testing the candy). They let one little kitty into the puppy shop, though. :0)
 Becca and her mommy have been sick since that night, which may explain why I'm home blogging on a Sunday morning (but maybe not). Kate has had a fever this weekend, and then threw up her breakfast this morning. Hopefully she'll feel up to trick or treating at least a little tonight.
I hope you and your little kitties and puppies, ghosts and goblins, princesses and pirates all have fun tonight as well, and have a safe and happy Halloween!

Kate's costume is so cute! We have our ToT tonight, but I'm not positive that Bug will agree to be seen in her milk carton costume. I did borrow a back up from a co-worker, just in case!
