Halloween

I know a lot of people don't tend to like Halloween. Many think it is a commercialized thing, and many think it is worshiping the Devil. I don't necessarily believe that parts of Halloween are great, but I do explain to my children that it is just a Holiday. They are not allowed to eat much candy, so it last them up until Christmas most years. We go thru it before they are allowed to eat any of it, cause as we all know there are still crazy people out there. I also stress that our Halloween costumes are not to be to scary or violent. Most years, I try to test them to come up with more creative ones. :) This year, with us moving, and it being late when we decided to get our costumes, and not knowing if we were even going out this year. I wasn't sure if I wanted them to, not knowing the community, but my in laws felt our neighbor was safe enough, and we have since gotten to know our neighbors well, and they are great. Course my kids weren't very happy with my almost canceling Halloween. We started first by going to a Church function, where they had some games, and a safe house for trick or treating. They also had, hayrides, bounce houses, fire trucks, crime dogs, and music. It was pretty cool and only a few blocks from us. After we left there, we came back to go Trick or Treating in our neighborhood. The kids had fun, and get plenty of candy, rings, necklaces, and noise makers! :)

Hunter was a Transformer.




Sage was a Fairy.




and so was Rachel.





Before I leave you ...I want to leave you with some photo's from our fun evening. These are from our time at the church.



Hope you all had a great Halloween! :)
