We started the day out getting our kids all costumed up for our church's Candy Carnival. Our little girl was a hula girl & our little boy was a pirate. I got the hula stuff at Dollarama. Most of the pirate costume came from thrift stores (ladies slouchy boots, too-big black pants, & a ladies ruffled blouse). We got the pirate hat, stick-on moustache, eye patch & sword from Dollarama. The parrot came from Wal-mart. The coat is mine. :)
The kids partied in the gym while we were having church. After church, everyone headed into the gym for a yummy meal of fried chicken, rolls, & salads with home made pies for dessert. Delish!
There was live entertainment, fun fall decorations, caramel apples, carnival games, popcorn, sno cones, tons of candy for the kids, & of course the booths which were run by different people in our church.
Our booth was well received & MJ & I both sold about half of what we brought. I'd call that pretty successful.

I didn't get a lot of photos as we were kept pretty busy with our customers, but here's a few:
A great time was had by all! I, for one, hope it becomes an annual event. A huge thank you to everyone who helped pull it off!!
Enjoy your Monday!
