Fall Festival

We had a busy week preparing for the Fall Festival at our church. The festival was Wednesday night and proved to be a great success. Because of the rain (which we are very grateful for), the Trunk or Treat had to be moved inside which actually worked out quite well. Our trunk theme this year was "The Ladybug Picnic". The idea first came from Laura Anne's costume, then Chris thought of the song "Ladybug Picnic" from Sesame Street so we went with that idea. Chris actually found a recording of the original song from the show on YouTube so we had it playing for our "picnic". I made 12 ladybugs out of styrofoam and made a Chicken Not-Pie (made from pudding, fruit and candy instead of chicken and vegetables!). It was very cool, and of course, I used the opportunity to place a picture of Laura Anne in her costume on the table! :o)
One more thing, Laura Anne won the costume contest for her age group!! She got a little princess teddy bear for her prize. We were very proud! :o)

That is so cool!!! I wish I was there! Sounds like fun.

How was the Chicken-Not-Pie? You know, it could still be called a pie. Usually, pies are dessert. Maybe it should be Not-Chicken-Pie. I know, I know, then that would take away from the humor.
