Trunk or Treat 2016

This year's trick or treating was a little up in the air; John had to work (and go in early no less πŸ˜”), our usual place (church) wasn't doing anything and with Halloween on the weekend, not many places were doing anything, opting to hold their deals on the weekend. Call me old fashioned but I wanna go trick or treating ON Halloween.

Sassy Cop πŸ˜€

McKayla and I ended up meeting family (with John following behind so he could leave when done to go to work) and we headed out for an evening of fun.

First stop was what they called a Trunk or Treat but it really wasn't. They had a couple of their new vehicles on the show room floor with candy in the trunks but most of the candy was found in the offices at the back of the building. Kids didn't care WHERE they got their candy from tho haha.

Face Painting a MUST

Then we headed to a church that had a REAL trunk or treat. I won't bore you to death slow your computers down with the hundreds of pictures I took but instead just share my favorites from the night.

Look at that adorable "lion"!

This car was awesome! You REALLY had to work for that candy. LOL You had to toss the rings onto those cups.........

Then walk the plank........

And finally be brave enough to jump into the "water".

Gumball Machine!

Scooby and the Mystery Gang!

These guys were awesome!

My favorite!

So there goes another Halloween. McKayla racked up on candy like she normally does and we'll be eating candy until NEXT Halloween. LOL Hope you had a wonderful day full of fun and mischief!

1. GENERAL CONFORMATION (a) GENERAL APPEARANCE. The Great Dane combines in its distinguished appearance dignity, strength and elegance with great size and a powerful, well-formed, smoothly muscled body. He is one of the giant breeds, but is unique in that his general conformation must be so well balanced that he never appears clumsy and is always a unit--the Apollo of dogs. He must be spirited and courageous--never timid. He is friendly and dependable. This physical and mental combination is the characteristic which gives the Great Dane the majesty possessed by no other breed. It is particularly true of this breed that there is an impression of great masculinity in dogs as compared to an impression of great femininity in bitches. The male should appear more massive t…

(Typed for easy reading below each picture which has made this post EXTREMELY long. Also, you *should* be able to click on the pictures to enlarge, but sadly still not enough to read the charts.)
