Macella & Kirstie made pumpkins with their grandma yesterday and really enjoyed it. Kirstie saved some of her pumpkin to carve with Gary. They carved it this morning. Maria had no idea what was going on, but she certainly enjoyed it.
Normally Gary works on the 31st because it lands on a weekday. Since it was a Saturday he was able to join us this year. Since we moved in 2006, we have always gone with our friends the Proper's. They were certainly a blessing the first year when we really didn't know anyone. Every year they have continued to be a blessing to us. We had nice weather, so that was nice. A guy dressed as Freddy Krueger jumped out at the kids and Maria laughed at him. The guy's family had a nice laugh over that. Between Katie, Susan, Gary, and myself Maria visited every house and picked out candy. Afterward we headed to Susan's parents for some pictures and rest. Then we headed to our house for pizza and cake.
We had a busy, but very enjoyable day. Susan's parents were able to hand out over 100tracts. Pray that they may have an impact on the children/parents who received them.
