Happy Halloween

Today was sure a fun packed day!

This afternoon we went to Makenna's party at school. First we watched the costume parade of all the kids. Everyone looked great.
They got to play some games. Keaton was even allowed to play too. He thought he was BIG now!

They had goodies packed with sugar!!

After school we went to the church. The kids had fun at the Fall Festival. They made a few crafts.

Then they played a few games.

After that we hit the town for some good ole' fashion trick-or-treating. We ended the night going to Papaw and Nana's for supper. I think the kids lasted maybe two minutes after they hit their pillows tonight. They were really tired.

Pumpkins And More

Tonight the kids got to paint their pumpkins. They thought that was really fun. Then they opened their pumpkin cards from the family. We finished off the evening with homemade pumpkin pie (thanks Grandma). It was a good evening.

Trust And Believe

I read the following here:

When we choose to believe that ALL the events in our life are good for us, even the ones that seem frustrating and painful for now, we are agreeing with God! When we choose to believe and trust God that there will always be a good outcome, we are trusting Him! Only God knows why we are going through these circumstances. Our new dialogue with God will be, "God, this is going to be an interesting journey. I'm excited to see how you are going to bring good out of this one. I trust you will!"

...I needed to hear that today and am trying to trust Him. Just thought I would share.

Happy Birthday Papaw!

Sunday was a fun day. We took the kids to 1 Fun Farm to play after church and a good lunch that Nana had made. They had a good time. They played with the cousins and we all celebrated Papaw's birthday. They rode on the cow train. They played in the corn. They went down a big slide. They jumped on a giant air pillow. We all went on a hayride. Then it was back to Nana and Papaw's house for some cake. Happy Birthday Papaw!! We hope you had a good day. We sure did.

She Is Growing Up...

Makenna brought a paper home from school today that made me realize she is growing up. She had a pledge card that she signed and pledged to lead a drug-free life, stay happy and healthy, and stand up for what she knows is right. WOW! She is beyond the age where Stacey and I can protect her at all times. She is on the bus and at school without us around to make her decisions for her. All we can do is teach her best we know how to do what is right, put our trust in her, and pray that when a situation arises she will do what is right and then feel comfortable enough to talk with us about it. Where did the time go??

A Fun Evening

After a looong day at work, I met Stacey and the kids at church for a chicken noodle dinner. They played at the playground while waiting for me to get there. It was good food and good company.

Then it was on to the Fall Festival at the elementary school. They got their face painted. Keaton has a Colts sign and Makenna has a butterfly.

They jumped in the fun house.

And went for one very cold hayride. We had a good evening.

A Night Out

Tonight Stacey and I went to Muncie (without the kids). We were able to enjoy dinner AND conversation. It was nice to catch up. We haven't seen much of each other lately. Then it was on to the At least it is done though. Hope you all had a good week!

Evening Stroll

Tonight while I walked the kids rode along on their bikes. They stopped and posed for pictures on the way around town.
