Happy Trunk or Treat!

Last Saturday, our ward had a trunk-or-treat in the church parking lot. Most people thought Dawna was a boy because all her cute blond hair was up in a pumpkin hat...Bro. Taylor also dressed up as a pumpkin, so we got their picture together. Jon was a computer virus, which I thought was pretty amusing. I have to say that I was a bit skeptical about the merits of a trunk-or-treat... but now I'm a believer. We got better treats than I ever got on Halloween and I don't feel totally overloaded with junk candy... Dawna got glow stick bracelets, play dough, a licorice rope, Doritos, and FULL SIZE candy bars... none of this fun-size business... Plus there was a fortune teller (which told her that "he" would be a great prince and soldier (hmmm...)) plus a witch that made creepy crawlers with her. It was so much fun!

Jungle Queen; war chief

The above are two pictures of Dawna as, respectively, the war chief (ie, she painted her own belly and danced around) and the jungle queen. Ask any kid who grew up in this backyard: something happens when you go out take on this alter-ego, wild child persona that makes you do crazy things like swim in the ditch or climb trees or try to use a shopping cart as a canoe (don't ask).

Thanks Aunt Sarah!

Here are several pictures of Dawna that I think are really cute. When Emily and Adele returned from Chicago, Em gave Dawna this pink hat from Aunt Sarah! She hasn't really worn many hats in the past, but for some reason, she really goes for this one...

She plays with it almost every day that she finds it out lying around, but this is the first time I've gotten pictures of it! I love her funny expressions too!
