Aaarrrgggh...I'm An Ogre!

I waited until today to tell the children that Halloween was coming. We hadn't decided if we were going to join in on anything 'Halloween' this year. We decided to participate, including some activities we haven't adopted in other years. Here's how our day played out...

We prayed throughout the day for our thoughts to turn towards Him today.

We prayed for the families in our community that would be participating.

We handed out candy.

We carved a pumpkin - from our garden.

We dressed up.



We went trick or treating with the children saying, "Aaarrrgh...I'm an ogre!" at every stop.

not a big Halloween fan myself... but at least when the boys were little-- I could dress them up and take some cute pictures.

Now that they're "too old"... at the ripe ages of 7 to 11, I couldn't get any of them to dress up.

We don't do halloween over here - I like the way you did it - turning the focus to Jesus. Great pumpkin carving! Dressing up looks like fun!

I LOVE your Jesus pumpkin! We don't usually carve pumpkins but if we ever do I want to do one like that.
