Of Strawberries and X-Men

It's over.  October.  My favorite month of the year.  The harbinger of Fall.  The great and wonderful month. It. is.  Over.  That being said, it was a pretty awesome end.  Our family doesn't celebrate Halloween. We do, however, allow our children to participate in the church's Harvest in the Trunk.  Harvest in the Trunk is similar to the Trick and Trunk activities done in countless churches and locations nationwide.  Our is done with a Christian theme.  This year was the first year our church participated and I have to say we enjoyed ourselves despite it being ridiculously cold and windy.

One of the trunks was absolutely amazing.  She is an events coordinator and caterer.  You could tell!  She had these amazing cake pops and gummy bears. The trunk was so well done.  Everyone stopped by her trunk and we actually hesitated taking the goodies. But we did and they were SO yummy!

After the Trunk and Treat was over, our family ventured to a sister in law's home for a costume party.  The costume party was a reward for the kids for doing well in school.  Everyone had to come dressed and it was a great time.

I did something rather unusual for the event.  I came out of my shell and dressed.  I donned a caramel wig, a 70's bodysuit with some platform stilettos and became #FoxyCleopatra.  It was great.  A very fun opportunity to do something new.

Our Honeybee won best Children's costume under 5.  That's really awesome for her though she won't realize lol.

Overall, Honeyebee's first Harvest in the Trunk went very well.
