Jarrod and I got engaged on Halloween weekend 3 years ago, right after our church Trunk-or-Treat celebration. Earlier that weekend we dressed up as a devil and angel - in theological irony. I don't know why he was so easy to convince to dress up that year - probably because he was still trying to woo me. It's been a struggle ever since.
Two years ago I said I wanted to do something themed, but then ended up working on Halloween and giving up. Last year I said I wanted to do something themed and Jarrod said no. I decided to go with our young adult group and
This year I said I wanted to do something themed. (Are you sensing a...theme?) and Jarrod wasn't interested. I even suggested that we go as skeletons:
Jarrod wasn't interested at all. So I made my own skeleton (more on that tomorrow!) and decided he was on his own.
You're probably wondering why I even care about dressing up. We don't have kids and obviously don't trick or treat in our neighborhood. We do have a festival at church where everyone dresses up and decorates their car trunks - Truck-or-Treat - a great place to have a theme, decorate our car, dress up, and have fun!
So this year I'm on my own again, but next year we'll have a 10 month old baby to decorate! I'm already thinking about themes!
