As promised, a pic of me as “the ark” last night at “Trunk or Treat”. It was extremely cold so I had on three shirts and everybody laughed and said if I fell I would bounce I was so padded. I could hardly move my arms due to the thickness of the shirts.
It was a great night. We had a lot of Trick or Treaters. They were awesome and made me feel like a job well done. As you can tell in the background we served food. That was a popular area.
Hope everyone had a wonderful and Safe Halloween. Also still praying for those of our friends up north that are still dealing with “SANDY”. Our thoughts and prayers are with them in this awful time.
I’ve always loved Halloween. The main reason is I get to act like a kid for a whole day. Well, tonight’s the “Trunk or Treat” at our Church and you got it, me being the Children’s Minister I’m in charge. Also being the Children’s Minister I get to totally go crazy with my costume. I’ve got to totally blow the kid’s minds. Well here are the last three years costumes.
1: Human Pumpkin (Had the smart idea of coloring my face with orange eye shadow. Guess what? It does not come off with soap and water. We had Church the next day and I had to go with an orange face.)
2: Hunter – That was fun. I dressed in my husband’s hunting clothes and I stayed warm all night.
3: Bouquet of Balloons – That was hilarious until someone located the pins inside the Church. I safety pinned blowed up balloons all over my black sweatshirt. I even had them on a headband on top of my head. I was colorful to say the least. My husband found my stash of straight pins in my Church office and when the night got a little slow, he decided to liven things up by busting my balloons when I wasn’t looking.
4: Country girl: This was not too much off the mark as I’m a country girl. But I added huge freckles and uneven ponytails.
Well, this year I decided to go a little different. I tried to think of something totally unusual. As if I’m not already totally unusual. I started thinking of different Bible characters that the kid’s would know. I finally got it! I will be Noah’s Ark, not Noah, but the Ark. Yes folks, I will be a boat (Well a cardboard simulation) and I even put animals standing all over the front. I will post a picture of myself tomorrow so you can see me.
Hope everyone has a wonderful Halloween and a safe one. Be a kid and go crazy. You only live once and hey, you gotta just go for it. It makes you feel young again.
As always, good writing and may God bless you!
