Halloween 2012

Another Halloween. This one is a little different. The kids are out and I am home! Wha?! Yep. Kind of cool. Though I feel a little too young for this. 🙂

Madeline (the dragon) is out with her friend (the dragon trainer) and is driving around the countryside with her friend’s parents. Luke is out with his best friend; Olivia is with them. Marc tagged along with Luke’s friend’s dad to keep him company (the Dutch need to stick together). Which leaves me at home on a quiet night. Looks like not a lot of people are driving around the countryside on this cold, cold night. Oooo… wait. I see headlights.

Here are the pictures of Halloween 2012:

Pose and attack!

I was just putting our summer jackets away this afternoon when I was hit with some inspiration. And voila! Marc the bearded pumpkin.

So, the kids left and I get to enjoy a quiet, candelit house tonight!

Just me and my slouch socks over here. (I said on Facebook tonight that I didn’t feel like showering today, so I threw my hair up in a side ponytail, put on some teal green eye makeup, pink blush, leggings and over-sized sweatshirt, and I instantly became “fun 1980s college chick” rather than “lazy mom who doesn’t want to shower.”)

Happy freezing cold Halloween!

  1. Dear Friends, I am so happy your first ministry experience is on staff and in the country, this is the perfect step for your education to sink in. Someday you will be back in a large population area and really ready to use what you have learned and experienced.

    Great kids and a happy evening for them. Glad you got to stay warm.

    How far from stores and groceries are you? Post more pics of the church folks and worship please.
