Last weekend our church had their annual Trunk Or Treat. It was a lot of fun being that we’re in a new place again, which means new people to hang out with, and we could really show our stuff. About a month ago we decided that this year we’d try for a family themed costume again, and went with Inside Out.

It’s the only movie we saw in theaters this year, and with our girls growing up into little adults, and dealing with all kind of emotions, it was the perfect one to see! We had one problem though – there are only 5 emotions, and there are 6 of us. Feeling a bit spunky, I volunteered myself to dress as Bing Bong – Riley’s imaginary friend for those who haven’t seen the movie yet.

Guess what! Turns out besides a chili cook off, cornbread contest, and dessert contest – they also had a costume contest. I bet you see where this is going right? Mark entered the chili contest – no win. I entered the dessert contest – no win. We were automatically entered in the costume contest, and we WON. The kids emotions were all JOY when our names were read.
