Weekend Recap

I have nothing clever to say. Just PRAISE GOD, HIDE THE CANDY, and GO CHIEFTAINS!!!!

We just had a 4-day wild and wooly weekend. I call it a 4-day weekend because the kids didn't have school on Thursday or Friday, which meant 2 extra days to sleep in, fight over the computer, and celebrate Halloween.

*Thursday & Friday morning we were busy setting up the church for Girls Night Out. Thursday afternoon we put together our treats for Trunk or Treat!

*Trunk or Treat was a new addition to the Halloween festivities in town this year. The school parent group sponsored this event where people decorate their vehicle trunks & pass out candy to parading trick-or-treaters. Ally did all of the Burb decorating herself. She did a fantastic job, rigging up lights and using the kids' school decorations!

Here we are getting ready to go trunk-or-treating!

Yes, I became one of those people who makes their dog dress up for Halloween. The pirate hat was a quarter at the thrift shop; I couldn't resist.

It was a pretty festive sight in the school parking lot that night. Too bad it was FREEZING cold and windy.

Astrid was super creative with her van!!

*Friday afternoon Dad led the pumpkin carving.

*Girls Night Out started with supper and the fashion show.

Then it was time to worship!

My girls looked so beautiful!

Paige was so excited to wear her new blouse (from Ally) and sport a new hairstyle! I just wish I would have taken a picture of my mom and Aunt Joyce, who were also there.

I led a break-out for the tweens (including Ally) on Proverbs 3. We made 4-strand necklaces (out of discarded t-shirts) for the 4 things the writer (King Solomon) advises us to wear like a necklace: loyalty, kindness, common sense, and discernment!

*Saturday afternoon we hosted Seneca for Playoff Level 2. The kids went out to join the pre-game tunnel!

Nothing like small town, small school football.

I can't take pictures during the game, watch kids, and watch the game at the same time. So this was taken post-game with Daddy after we WON!! Woo-hoo!!!!

*Sunday brought church, trick-or-treating, and the annual sorting of the candy.

But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.--Isaiah 40:31

Wow! What an awesome weekend! Trunk and Treat was a blast! I'm glad we went. Even though it was FREEZING!
