Halloween is upon us, and it makes for a super fun Family Night! We had Curious George, Mickey Mouse, Sir “Candy”-A-Lot and Dash present. The mommies were witches (imagine that:) and the daddies were Frankensteins.
We had a spider web full of little surprises and each little fellow had a chance to crawl through and pick some treats. Then we had an obstacle course of witches hats and pumpkins that involved going in circles and lots of jumping:)
Then we moved inside and the boys colored fun monster posters while Mark cooked up some yummy grilled cheese pumpkins and bats.
We ate brain soup, pumpkin and bat grilled cheese sandwiches, and witch finger cheetos. For dessert Vanessa made yummy spider cupcakes and a surprise witches brew (sorbet with ginger ale and gummi worms crawling out.) They were a hit!
We ended the evening with a flashlight game. We talked about the importance of following The Light. We looked at Psalm 119:105 that shows us God’s Word is our light. That is how we know which “way to go.” And then in Matthew 5 Jesus explains how He calls US to be a light to the world and the only way we can do that is when we are filled with Him. We also talked about how important and helpful it is to have someone else helping us when we are following the Light. Having friends and other families encourage us and help us make good choices is super important.
We did decide that the adults are far more tired at the end of Family Nights then the kids:) Such fun though! And hopefully many memories are made…
