This year, our friend, Melissa, and her daughter, Cecily, joined us for some trick-or-treating. We usually just go to houses where we know the families, on our street and the one behind us. After that, we get in the car and head to a nearby church that hosts a, "trunk-or-treating" event we have gone to the past few years. Families from that church park several cars in a big circle with the trunks facing in, decorate their trunks, and hand out candy to little trick-or-treaters. After going to all the trunks, you can go inside where they have pizza and some carnival-type games that kids can play. Attendance at this event has really increased in the last couple of years and we heard of three other churches that hosted their own versions of trunk-or-treat this year. It is a safe way for kids to dress up, get lots of candy and have fun.
We also heard that Chipotle restaurants will give free burritos to anyone dressed in tin foil on Halloween night, so of course we had to check it out! When we got there, we saw a long line of people wearing tin foil hats, belts and other creations, waiting for their free burritos. So, we joined the line and started twisting and crimping foil into headbands, bracelets, hats and belts. And, yes, we all got free burritos! We took the burritos home and will enjoy them for dinner tonight. That was a fun way to end the evening, and how can you say no to a free meal? ;-)
