Our church has had "Trunks full of treats" for the past several years on Halloween. This year, besides the trick-or-treating in the parking lot, they had a bounce house, photos, games, horse-drawn wagon rides, and crafts. I opted out of passing out treats this year because while it normally starts out pleasant enough, the temperature quickly drops to about -15º and I freeze. Therefore, I'm taking all the credit for the balmy temps they enjoyed tonight. If I had been there, I'm certain it would have felt arctic. I went grocery shopping instead. Do I know how to have a good time or what?
Julianne was asked to help register the kids who had photos taken and Allison was asked to help out with crafts. Allison still wanted to trick or treat, though, so she decided on an easy costume that wouldn't hinder her from doing crafts.
She dressed as a waitress. That's what you're supposed to think when you look at the picture. One woman from our church, a staunch Democrat (like a certain aunt of mine who shall remain unnamed), saw her and asked if she was supposed to be Sarah Palin. Allison said "No, I'm a waitress."
She dropped some candy in Allison's bag and said "Oh, good thing, because if you were Sarah Palin, I wouldn't be able to give you any candy."
Her husband walked up and she told him "She's Sarah Palin!" Allison muttered "No, I'm a waitress."
I'm sorry Aunt Sharon. Please tell me you still love Allison, even if she does look a bit like a Republican.
