Our Five Ring Circus: TOT Trial Run

TOT Trial Run

Every year, our local high school holds a Trick or Treat night at the school.  It's a great event!  Each classroom is decorated with a different theme, and the students dress up according to that theme. Also, it's warm, dry, fun, and the kids get a ton of candy!

Yesterday, we picked up Amber and Jack and drove to the school. When we walked in, we ran into our friend, Josh, and his son, Alex, so we joined them! We got there before it started, so we weren't too far back in line.

The kids waited impatiently for trick or treating to begin!


Amber happily took baby duty, so I could help Lily trick or treat.  This was the first year that she understood what to do!


We quickly made our rounds through all the classrooms.


The kids were mesmerized by all the fun themes and costumed students. There was just so much to see! 

Lily was a pro before we were finished.  If she got a piece of candy she really liked, she immediately opened it.  At the last room, one of the students dropped a piece of candy as she was handing it to Lily.  Lily bent over to pick it up, and saw candy all over the floor.  She insisted on picking up each piece and handing it back to the students.  When she finished, the girls ended up dumping it all into her bag for being so helpful!


Liam slept the entire time.  He woke up briefly to flash a sleepy smile at Amber!


After we finished, we headed to the cafeteria for a drink and a snack, and then headed home.  We were in and out within 45 minutes!

Trick or Treating is a lot more fun with friends!


It was a fun night, and somehow, I always end up with extra kids!
