Trunk or Treat

I had never even heard of Trunk or Treat until this year, but when I mentioned a local one to Steve he was all for it. He singlehandedly designed and planned our trunk around the Wugs--she was a caterpillar, as inspired by Eric Carle's The Very Hungry Caterpillar and our sweet way of swaddling her. He painted the posterboard like a forest, bought the extra fabric as the forest floor, got the 'caterpillar food'...so late Wednesday afternoon we headed over to the event. It's only about 20 minutes away from where we live but we still had to pull over so I could nurse M halfway there. What can I say, the girl can eat.

But when we got to the church we saw this sign.

 Apparently the newspaper published the wrong day. There we were, all dressed up and nowhere to go. This sort of thing happens to us all. the. time. 

Unfortunately Steve was working on the real day of Trunk or Treat but he got out a little early and we were able to catch the last 30 minutes. We had two trick-or-treaters = success.

I'll post more pictures of Mila in her costume tomorrow. Marmousch sewed up the whole thing in like 20 minutes. I want that kind of talent.
