Trunk or Treat

Last night our church had our second annual Trunk or Treat in the church parking lot. We had a lot of fun dressing up and spending the evening with our church family. This fall the Disney channel added a new show to its line up "Jake and the Neverland Pirates", from the moment Karter saw that first show, he has been pretending that he is "Jake" (the one with the red bandanna), Kaden is "Cubby" (blue bandanna), I am "Izzy" (obviously, the only girl!) and Kristoffer is the naughty "Captain Hook". He loves that show, so it was pretty easy to decide what our family was going to be for Halloween this year... Jake and the Neverland Pirates with Captain Hook!! I made the boys costumes and pieced together Kristoffer's and mine, while Karter made sure that I had all the details true to the show...down to the gold trim on his vest. We would be out shopping and he would make sure that I new Jake wore boots that practically covered his legs.

Our "Jake" was way cuter than the one on TV!!

Our "Cubby" had just woken up from a nap when it was time to get dressed, so he was a little unsure about the whole idea. (It didn't help that Daddy was walking around in a crazy Captain Hook outfit!) Thankfully, Aunt Kara (dressed as a baseball player) was here to snuggle our babe!

Gran-Gran and Papaw Bud stopped by to check out our pirates.

"Jake" and his pirate crew!

"Captain Hook" wasn't quite used to wearing his long hair, and needed a little help pulling it back!

"Cubby" loves candy (in real life) so he was all about getting candy from people.

They were polite pirates, thanking everyone after they got their candy!

"Captain Hook" had a great time passing out candy, and was a little horse by the end of the to many "Rrrrrr's".

Of course, by the end of the night the boys had eaten WAY too much candy, and Kaden's white shirt was no longer white!

The event was a succes and a fun way to outreach to our Sulphur Springs community!
