Be Halloweening

I am sure if I looked into the history of Halloween or asked one of my non-Halloween-going friends, we may not participate in October 31st activities. But we do and we do it well! IMG_6818.JPGIMG_6819.JPG

God gets all our praise for this night and the people who surrounded us this Halloween!

Be Creating A Circus With Cousins

We were extremely grateful to see all four of the ‘big city’ cousins all in one day on Thanksgiving weekend.

One of the set of cousins love getting the costumes out and creating when we visit together. This visit brought out the laughter in all of us.

Just imagine a pint-sized announcer, a green puppy-shirt wearing cutie, a preschooler in a laundry basket, a riding clown and a climbing monkey. Add in the tire swing in our front yard and viola you have a circus.

Enjoy the show:
