Halloween 2007. A day that Chandler has longed for since Halloween 2006. She has waited, and asked about, and waited some more, and asked a WHOLE lot more questions about this day for a year now. It has finally come and gone. Here are the pictures to prove it!
Our Halloween costume prep began at 12:30 yesterday. We washed, we scrubbed, we brushed, we rolled and we primped....
**She wanted me to make note of the fact that she is poking her tongue through the hole in her smile.
After pictures at home we headed off to Zaxby's for dinner. Chandler loved that everyone was watching her. Surprisingly, when we first got there we were the only ones with kids in costumes. Another family arrived a little later with 2 Barbie Brides.
After dinner we headed over to "Trunk or Treat". Last year our church began hosting this Trick or Treating alternative. It was a HUGE success so they did it again this year. People sign up to decorate the trunk of their car and dress up to hand out candy. A few of our favorite trunks were (sorry no pictures!) the Chick-fil-A trunk, the Charlotte's Web trunk, Mrs. Erin's Oklahoma Sooners trunk (she lets the kids throw footballs into her car... Chandler liked that) and Mrs. Shelia's "Jonah and the Whale" trunk. We hope she wins 1st prize this year.
Chandler also enjoyed climbing the giant inflatable slide/maze that was set up.
**When she saw this picture she told me that it would have been better if I were in costume too! I told her that I was! Brandon and I went as Georgia fans. :) Not very creative, but it stirred up a lot of contempt here in Tennessee after the big win over Florida last week. Apparently there are a lot of Florida fans in Cleveland.
After we hit all the trunks, Chandler wanted to "knock on some doors". We didn't really know of a good neighborhood to take her to, so we headed to the mall. Two local churches were co-hosting a Trick or Treating Alternative there.
After the mall we were all so worn out! It was time to head home!!
