Everyone knows that this past weekend was Halloween. Although many Christians disagree with even acknowledging Halloween, we don’t agree. We look at this day as being a family day for us and a fun time for our children to enjoy getting candy for free. More than that though, we enjoy fellowship with many others, Christians included.
Our children chose to dress up as Star Wars characters this year, with the exception of our seven year old daughter. Winston wanted to be Darth Vader, Emmalee chose to be a Fairy Princess with pink wings, Justain chose Obi Wan Kenobi and little Laycie was an adorable Ewok.
We began our weekend with a trip to Front Street to visit the town’s many vendors and stores which provided candy. This allowed us to fellowship with many of the town folk, friends and family. It also allowed my stepson to spend family time with both my children and his Mom’s children. It’s a great way for him to bond with both sides and see us getting along just for him. The children truly enjoyed this first night of Halloween weekend.
