Happy Halloween!

You might not know that Halloween is my favorite holiday of the year. It's such a fun holiday. You get to dress up as whatever you want, it gives you an excuse to buy candy "for the kids" but everyone knows you stash some away for you.

And in general you get to be ridiculous with cool kids which is probably really why I love Halloween.

Since I don't have my nieces and nephews to be ridiculous with this year, I had to be ridiculous all on my own.

Last night was our church's Trunk or Treat. For those of you outside of the Mormon church, or Utah, a Trunk or Treat is a safe way for kids to trick or treat. Everyone pulls their car trunks around in a circle. People decorate them and the kids go trick or treating from car to car.


 Since we didn't get home from work until it had already started we didn't have time to decorate the trunk, so I decided to be the decoration and climbed in the trunk with a pumpkin on my lap and handed out candy from there. The kids couldn't see me until they rounded the corner, so everyone got a good surprise from seeing me inside the trunk.
I love being ridiculous with kids like this, because they think it's actually funny. I kept asking if they wanted to climb in with me. Hal, being the reasonable one told me I probably shouldn't say that to kids. Too late.
 Now I was so excited about my costume, but no one at the party knew who I was. Apparently none of them watch the best TV show ever. If someone can't tell me who I am I might as well just stop blogging.

Just kidding...a little bit. I'll give you two hints:
Someone please tell me how awesome my bag of Sabor De Soledad is. Am I the only one who had no idea what that means? It means flavor of loneliness, which makes that episode even better.
Maybe I should have added a ham sandwich to the costume?

What did you dress up as for Halloween?
