We celebrated Halloween and trick-or-treating this past weekend (and we will again this weekend). We carved pumpkins, went trick-or-treating with our friends the Tiedtke's and had a grand old time:). We went in the evening and the weather was mild. Elsi was a trooper and walked for quite a few houses, peering in her pumpkin at all of the goodies she was accumulating. Steve and Drew were the life of the evening as many cars honked for their hilarious costumes:). We are so grateful for our wonderful friends, the Tiedtke's. They are a very special family to us.

This past Tuesday we had "Fall Family Fun Night" at Kinder Place, which is Elsiana's day care at our church. They had pumpkin ring toss, pumpkin bean bag toss, pumpkin cookies and a pumpkin patch! We had a great time that night. I was fortunate enough to be able to watch our new pastor's three children that night as well, so they were able to join in the festivities. We also were able to write on a contruction paper leaf what we are thankful for. Benjamin said that he is thankful for God. What a great witness he is:). I am so blessed to work at a church where I am daily surrounded by God's love. What a blessing!
