It's a little late in the season for my annual 'I love fall' post, but I felt it still note-worthy. And, Autumn has flown by this year, I didn't really get the chance to appreciate it in full! I did get the chance to take the family to Yates Cider Mill for Cider and Donuts (my favorite) but we didn't have time to carve pumpkins yet. My favorite fall/Halloween activity thus far has been the Trunk-or-Treating @ the church:
I volunteered to help out this year. As my luck would have it, I was away or working the three sundays pre-ceding the event, so I didn't really get in touch with anyone to organize (and if you know me, you know I'm a little OCD). It also worked out that Jeremy was out of town in Indiana on a DeeperStill trip, so I had the kids on my own (what was I thinking!?!) I got there a few hours early to help set up and bring the treats I made, and stayed for about 5 hours to help clean up afterward. I was EXHAUSTED but what a fun event!!! I spent a good two hours coming up with and decorating my trunk thinking it was cute, only to find it was mediocre compared to some of the trunks there! I was so impressed with the creativity and effort put in by everyone....what a cute idea!
All in all, it was very fun night. Thank goodness for Holly Knutson helping me pass out candy and watch the kids. I probably wouldn't have been able to do it without her help. I love my little munchkins all dressed up for Halloween. Always puts a smile on my face =]
