Halloween Who?

After a Trunk-or-Treat reprieve last year, the Smith Family was back in full force!  When we decide to do something, we're all in, and this Halloween was no different.  We decided to transform from the ordinary Smith Family (seriously, anything more ordinary than "Smith?") to the Whos from Whoville.

With the help of Kacey's awesome new convertible, some fake snow, the Grinch soundtrack playing in the background, and a little Who Magic (for the hair, because this kid of awesome hair is only possible with magic) we were a big hit at our ward trunk-or-treat. 

We got a few confused looks from little kids who thought maybe we were confused about which holiday we were celebrating.  It probably didn't help that Kacey handed out candy canes (thanks, Sam's club, for rushing into Christmas before we could even say "boo"), and that I said "Merry Christmas" instead of "Happy Halloween" to everyone.

When Jase posted this picture on facebook, he added the comment, "Looks like Mrs. Who has the hots for the Grinch!"  He's right :o)

I LOVE that Jason is such a good sport.  He makes a pretty great Grinch! Jase practiced "Grinch" phrases and did a great job of trying to steal children's candy.  In true Grinch fashion, Jase even taught one little Batman and Robin brother-due the words to "Jingle Bells, Batman Smells."  One little girl cried when she saw Jason the first time around.  The second time she came by our car she said, "Hurry, Mom, before the Dad comes back!"  The truth is, I was probably more grinch-like when I wouldn't let him put his green-grease-paint arm around my waist for this picture because my white shirt was new.

Happy Who-lloween!
