We also have 'Trunk or Treat' at our church. Some of the members go all out like you do. I don't anymore. Some of my earlier 'costumes' were too scary back in the day when they used to come to the door. I still try to have a carved pumpkin and some treats at home for those who don't make it to the church.
Guess I'd better get to bed. I thought I was having a bad time with RLS, but it turned out to be a really low blood sugar episode and I about shook myself to pieces before I figured out what was really going on. I gobbled down a bunch of stuff and drank some milk so it settled down. Yikers!
We do an outreach event at our church called, "Trunk or Treat." It is a safe and fun alternative to traditional trick or treating. We invite the entire community and all church members. Each person decorates the trunk of their vehicle with some sort of theme or prop(s). Children come by each vehicle and we hand out candy to them. Last year we made our trunk look like a pirate ship. My husband dressed as a pirate and I was his Pirate Mistress.
This year, we are going to do a Cowboy Western Theme having a jail, cowboy campfire using it to brew and serve hot apple cider (the rest is still in planning stage). I am dressing as the "New Sheriff in Town" and my husband is my Desperado. Should be fun!
Don't tell God how big your mountain is. Tell the mountain how big your God is!
