Happy Halloween

When thinking about costumes this year, we visited Gramma's pattern supply. Halee found a pattern of a mermaid and was set. We went to the fabric store and it had to look exactly like the picture. I think we did a pretty good job!

Hannah had several ideas in mind before she settled on a bunny. She recently lost the two teeth on each side of the front middle teeth (sorry I don't know the name!) So, she had bunny teeth! I was willing to sew the whole bunny outfit, but she just wanted a white sweat suit with a tummy and tail. Did you know that you cannot find white sweat pants in this town? Well, I ended up making them!

Actually all of us were in costume this year. (but guess who was behind the camera!) Ed dressed up as a sword belonging to the Holy Spirit.

Our church decided to hold a trunk or treat. One emphasis that they wanted to have was to give the community something more than candy. There were several biblical based games. Our was a pictionary game where someone drew something from the Bible and they had to guess what it was. Two from our YAC group helped run the game, but in the end Hannah ended up drawing most of the pictures! It was definately beneficial to her to be on the giving side.

Here is our trunk. Can you guess what it is?

Jonah and the Big Fish! Ed did a great job putting this one together.
