Halloween up here in Alaska is cold, wet, and actually kinda creepy! With the sun setting at 5:00 p.m and a constant breeze howling through the Sitka Spruce, it made a near perfect backdrop for the Trunk or Treat. Our Halloween adventure began with mom wrestling Kael into his Ninja costume, which he now likes very much... ...not so much when he was pleading with Mom to the camera down and wipe the silly makeup off of his face. He had a great time Trick or Treating it up and actually got to eat some of his candy before dad ate it all. If you look carefully at the mirror in the background you can see the kitchen from the living room in our 1 room studio apartment. Its teenie, but it only takes an hour to clean the entire house!
We took Kael to the Trunk or Treat at the local LDS church where they were also hosting a chili cook-off. We parked our Scion, all decked out in Halloweenish trunk decorations, right next to the cook-off tent for maximum chili access. A trip around the parking lot and a few hundred bowls of chili later we decided to get out of the rain and enjoy our loots!
