The kids had a great Halloween. We've been doing a lot of fun activities throughout the last week or two. They have completely been sugared up and worn out and so have I.
Beforehand, we went to the Christian bookstore to find our regular pumpkin prayer bracelets and bookmarks, but they no longer had them. However, while we were there, I found this book. In between the ghosts, boogers and blood, we always try to incorporate Jesus in Halloween.
Then after school, AJ came home with an invitation to join the National Beta Club. I was so proud of him! The club recognizes "outstanding qualities of academic achievement, character, leadership and service." What a great Halloween surprise!
They trick o treated around the park and then played a few games. We were trying to make sure we got home in time for Charlie Brown and pumpkin carving. Halloween really should have been on a Friday night.
Now if I hadn't have waited until the last minute to buy pumpkins, we would have had about 4. And got really creative with our pumpkin carving. However, I did and I think there was some pumpkin gauging going on. lol. We bought one giant pumpkin and did the pumpkin prayer.
