Giddy Up..It's Time for Trunk or Treat

Mary Catherine and Benjamin's school principal instituted the first ever St. Paul School Trunk or Treat.

As we have never been to one, I had no idea what to expect and didn't get the memo that we should have decorated our car! I think some large white paper spots on my black mini van would have made the perfect cow!

Anyway, here's some pictures from last night's festivities. Can I just say that I LOVED the little priest...he posed for me all night long. Unfortunately, the lighting was bad and you can't see his cute little black biretta.


Introducing Cowboy Ben, Cowgirl Mary and Luke the Calf...

Mary's classmate, Ella, and her family went all out decorating their minivan.  The theme was "Boo at the Zoo".  I loved how even Dad got into the spirit wearing footie jammies!  :)

This poor student just can't seem to get herself graduated...

Here's the little priest...only he's not wearing his's in his candy bucket!

And another one of my favorites..."Lucia Santos, 1917) (for those not of the three shepherd children that the Blessed Mother, Our Lady of Fatima, appeared before in Fatima, Portugal).  Her siblings were Lucia's two cousins, but I couldn't get a group picture as those three little ones were all about the candy!

And finally, Mary with her classmates.  She loved every minute of the evening.  Next year, I am so decorating the car!!!

Mary's new BFF, Caroline, adopted from China.  My girl is now obsessed with all thing Chinese! 

Happy Saturday!  Enjoy the weekend with all your little spooks! 


  1. Trunk or treats are the best. Cute costumes. We finally just figured out what we are doing for costumes this year.

    Happy Halloween!
