We took the kids to a Trunk or Treat party at our church last night. It was so much fun!
The car parked next to us had a life size skeleton with motion sensors. If someone walked close to it, the skeleton would play music and dance. To say my barely two year old was obsessed with it would be an understatement! He spent most of the night running to it and pointing, “Dance bad guy! Dance!” and then laughing and dancing with it. It was hysterical to watch and I am so sad that it was too dark out to get a good video of it.
After the trunk or treating part we all went inside for some cupcakes (as if we didn’t already have enough sugar) and some fun and games. The favorite game was Whack-A-Mole. The line to play this game wrapped far around the table! The wait was well worth it though!
You got the chance to WHACK some real moles (12 to 14 year old Deacons) with a water noodle! The Deacons would poke their heads out of the holes and the kids would nail them! I am not sure the kids will ever have so much fun again! Even my two year old got in on that action!
The youth also put on a haunted house as they do every year, but this year I actually thought it was pretty good. They some how found a way to turn off the emergency fire lights this year so the room was completely dark before the strobe lights started flashing! My hubby was helping work the spook ally so I felt pretty good about letting my almost three year old (yes, I have a 2yr old, 3yr old, and a 6yr old… all boys) go through it with me.
He loved it! Someone would jump out at us with a scary mask on and he would yell the fakest “AAAAHHHH” you have ever heard. It made everyone in the spoke alley laugh. Although, I was a bit embarrassed after we came out the exit when my three year exclaimed with glee, “I saw Daddy dead!” Maybe I shouldn’t desensitize him so soon!
Here’s to a fun Halloween!!!
