Some Halloween photos

At school last week, we had a pumpkin decorating competition amongst the 7th period classes. So we made a Robo-Pumpkin, which I have to say, turned out quite nicely. I used a lot of scraps I had laying around in storage. Hooray for never throwing anything away. :)

Oh, and I should probably mention that WE WON BEST OVERALL DESIGN!!! Woohoo!
On Saturday, we did Trunk-Or-Treat in our church's parking lot. Our theme was "Jesus is the Light of the World". We were really happy with the way it turned out...even if we only placed 2nd. The judges gave 1st place to the Wizard of Oz theme that included an 8-week-old St. Bernard puppy. Almost expected us to sing "We're Off to See the Wizard" during services the next morning. That's okay, because Jesus has first place in our hearts.
We were full of little jabs at the Wizard for the rest of the night. I'll spare you any more of them. :)
My friend Jenny was dressed as St. Patrick for her "Jesus Loves the Wee Ones" Ireland-themed vehicle. Because Jenny = slightly obsessed with all things Irish. In a good way.
So for two hours, we gave out candy...
And the guys compared budget. For most of those two hours.
A photo of our trunk at night.
Oh, and we may have borrowed the 1st place ribbon. Without permission. Twice.
It was all in good fun, I promise!
