Did you Halloween?

So, after all the debate on whether to Halloween or not Halloween,
we did it. 
We didn't focus at all on the yucky, scary aspect,
but we didn't have kids that missed out, either.

A few days ago, we carved pumpkins.
Lexi did a cross with Jesus carved into it, and Dylan did a pacman chasing a ghost guy.

The kids put costumes together of things they already had.
I did, though, make Lexi a cloak.
She'd been wanting one to go over her dress up dresses for a long time.

Dylan just wore his favorite mask.

We had a few families over
ate lots of good food
let the kiddos roam around the neighborhood
gave out glow bracelets and gospel tracts
the baby had so uch fun greeting everyone

It was nice and relaxing!

Here's what I made:

Paleo Pumpkin Chili

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Dip

We also had pizza, goodies contributed by others, and hot apple cider :)

Now on to Thanksgiving - and holiday truly worth the effort!
