But our ward had their "trick or trunk" (not to be confused with everyone else who does a "trunk or treat". Pennsylvania has some weird quirks ;) on the Wednesday BEFORE the Thursday BEFORE Halloween (the 23). Since it was on a Wednesday evening I had just assumed Nate would be at work and unable to go like most ward activities, but luckily someone switched him a shift so he worked Monday instead which meant he got to participate! We had heard stories of families in the ward going all out and it being a big competition which we knew we weren't going to go that extreme. But we did have coordinating costumes and a few decorations that funny enough never even made it out of the car. But I thought we looked good. And Nate was a good sport and wore a dress...and carved a pretty awesome pumpkin freehand!
