Its kind of become a tradition for Jon and I to join Naomi and the kids for trick or treating on Halloween. Jon stayed home this year to ensure that at least a few kids got candy from our place, so I went solo on spending the evening with the kidlets. I didn't have my camera with me so I stole these pictures from Naomi's blog. Hope you don't mind Nome :) The kids' were as cute as they always are and their costumes added such a nice touch to their cuteness.
I could hardly control my laughter when I saw Calvin's chubby cheeks sticking out of his little hotdog head. Isn't that an awesome costume!? If I'm not mistaken, all of the kids' costumes were from Old Navy. They make great stuff!
We're co-leading a Care Group through our church this year with our friends Tim & Heidi and we had our first official get-together last night. It was encouraging to see how easily the group interacted and the great time of sharing that stemmed from our study. We're going through the Nooma series and watched a great DVD called "Rain." It worked through the fact that we all experience "storms" in our lives and that no matter how big the storm may be, and how alone we may feel, God never leaves us and wants nothing more than to hold us close and lead us through each storm. I think its going to be a great year and I look forward to growing closer with our group.
Other than that, not much to report. I'll be sure to write more as soon as life "picks up" again... which I'm sure will be sooner than later :)
