Trunk or Treat

Halloween Trunk or Treat 2012

Our friends Carrie and Roger invited us to their church’s Halloween event where they open up their trunks in the parking lot and go trick or treating. We thought it would ab nice way for Vinny to go trick or treating since we dont plan on going out to our neighborhood (a little young).

When we got to the church they were having a chili cook-off with lots of chili and cornbread, PB&J for the kids. We didnt eat anything because we were planning to go out to eat after the event.

Vinny had his costume on and was running around looking at all the other kids in costumes, and checking out all the different rooms and doors at the church.

Lilia was Barney! Yes they still have Barney. Though i think all the episodes are super old! Kids still love him. She was cute, she likes Barney and Calliou, says her mommy.

After the crowd was done eating, they lined the kids up on stage for a costume parade. Jeff took Vince up there, and when they got on stage he walked across by himself, and smiled and sort of waved! It was cute but i was too far to get a good photo.

Next was the trick or treating. Wasnt sure how into it Vinny would be, but he actually got the hang of it! He was just toddling around in the parking lot, and he would go up to people since they had their hand out giving something. And he likes to grab and touch anything!

We brought a little pumkin bag that my mom had sent over with her Halloween treats to store his candies in. First thing he did with the candies once he got a hold of them was put it in his mouth. His first candy was a Twix and it got all chewed up.

Lilia was so cute, she was trying to hold Vinny’s hand so they could go together, but Vinny doesnt know how to hold hands yet! She even held my hand a few times. I think she is trained to do that though — hold an adults hand. Which is good.

We all went to BJs for dinner afterward. While we were waiting for out table to be ready, Vinny and Lilia were having a blast running around together outside. There was one of those sandwich signs sitting out by the door, and Vinny walked right under/through it, which made Lilia crack up! She followed suit! They did that about a dozen times. Lilia is a ball of energy just like Vinny, running in circles and just laughing. It was super cute to watch. Since Vinny can walk now, it seems like they can play together a lot better as opposed to before.

Dinner went pretty smoothly considering it was late for the kiddos. Vinny didnt want to sit in his chair so much, so i held him while i bounced all over me and the booth, etc. Gonna have to teach this kid some patience and table manners! LOL!

 

On this day..
