Last night was Trunk or Treat at my daughter’s school and we had a blast! Games, prizes & tons of candy made for a super fun family night! I signed up to participate in the trunk contest a month in advance and I gathered a few ideas of what I wanted to do. My plan was to do something Flintstones inspired because I had some cute Fred & Wilma costumes from Shindigz for my husband and I to wear. I made a mental list of what I wanted to do and then put it on the back burner because I had a whole month ahead of me. Fast forward 3 weeks and 4 days later and I hadn’t done squat. 2 nights before the festivities I get into bed and told my husband that we had to nix the Flintstones and asked if he had any ideas. We both had a good laugh because well he is useless when it comes to this stuff so he basically just said Good luck babe! I decided I was just going to throw out some pumpkins & witch brooms and call it a day. I pulled up the email about the event to find out when set up time was and one line caught my eye…..One winner will be picked for each category. School Spirit, Halloween Spirit, Most Creative & Judge’s Choice.
Wait, What? This is a competition?
I am the most competitive person EVER!!
So without further adieu I bring to you the Halloween Sugar Shack. WINNER of the Most Creative trunk at the 2nd Annual Reilly Elementary Trunk or Treat. Very prestigious I know!
This is Carl but sometimes he likes to cross dress so for the night his name was Carla.
I whipped up the most ghetto shark costume there ever was. Seriously I used packaging tape and cardboard to attach the fin on his back, it was bad!! My hubbs was such a trooper though, doesn’t he look so thrilled!Carla has a kitty whose name is Charlotte and goes anywhere she does.
I set out buckets & coconut bowls full of different candies so the Trunk or Treaters could pick out their favorites.
My girls, don’t they look just as thrilled as their dad?
When sharks attack!!
I was super bummed to have gotten home and realized that I hadn’t gotten one photo of myself in the set up except for this very poor quality cell phone selfie so here it is. Every beach needs a Lifeguard!
