Halloween was awesome!! We had a fun time. Grammy and Jonathan went trick-or-treating with us. It was Mari, Zyia and Kylen's first time. FYI: If you ever adopt a child from another country where they don't eat that much candy....Halloween is not the time to give them a bunch. Apparently 5 pieces was too much for Zyia, so she got sick afterwards. But we still had a great time. We also celebrated my brother-in-law, Marks birthday with a Halloween party where we played Wii Dance.
We love Halloween. Over the years we have researched "Halloween" and the meaning. As most anything you can find good and bad in it. As for our family, We love it. While there is clearly no place in the Christian home for the "darker side" of Halloween, we've concluded there is a place in our family for some innocent fun. Kids love to dress up and pretend. Over the years, we’ve allowed the kids to get costumes and go trick-or-treating, while supervised, around the community. We enjoy carving pumpkins, decorating cupcakes........Costumes though around our house are a year round thing.
