Trunk or Treat Gem Heights Style

So I don't think I've ever mentioned the massiveness of our ward. Well...it's MASSIVE! For example, we have two primaries. Not only are there two, they are both very full! I heard on Sunday that one of the two nurseries now has 20 kids in it, that's just ONE class. So that might give you an idea of the huge trunk or treat we had last night. In all the other wards we've been in, the cars line up on one side of the building. In this ward the cars line up on three sides of the building. So two rows of cars on three sides of the building = BIG TRUNK OR TREAT. Half way through Tate was tired and just wanted to stop, but we pressed on. By the time they had gone to every trunk they were all tired. There was still more candy to be had but my kids weren't haven it. Man, when I was a kid, I would have just kept on going! I was a die hard, candy loven kinda kid. I would trick or treat for hours. I guess we'll see how long they last on Halloween before I declare them sissies.

we have 34 nursery-aged kids (14 in one and 20 in the other), and 6 more coming in by the end of the year. To be exact. :)

and don't get me started on the 210-some odd primary kids.

Wow! That is crazy how ward your big is. I am suprised they haven't slip your ward. My kids did the same thing tonight trick or treating. Half way through they wanted to go home. Not like it was when I was a kid, that is for sure.
