Sunday, 10/25 was filled with loads of fun, not to mention some pretty fabulous costumes! The kids came dressed as animals: Lions & Elephants; a couple of super cute pumpkins; Ninjas, of the teenage mutant ninja turtle variety AND a human ninja; we had some Harry Potter characters-Harry Potter & Hermione; a ladybug; some beautiful princesses & queens-one who was actually a Musketeer in disguise; a 50's inspired ensemble was a part of our beautiful mix; along with some firefighters & a S.W.A.T. member; a ghost; the best clown I've ever seen; and rounded out by a visit from none other than Lightning McQueen. Stay tuned this week for a sneak peak of the results from our voting. Categories included: Most Original, Funniest, Cutest, and Best all Around.
A special thanks to Paul & Sandy Thomae for making caramel corn for all our special kiddos!
During Chapel Time Libby Erb was kind enough to carve our pumpkin for us. Below is the prayer/poem we followed as we carved it-extra Bible Bucks were earned for those who could remember what everything stood for. Loads of fun was had, hope to see you next week!
Love & Blessings on your week,
A prayer to carve your pumpkin by:
Dear Jesus, as I carve my pumpkin help me pray this prayer:
U Open my mind so I can learn about You;
(Cut the top off the pumpkin)
U Take all my sin and forgive all the wrong that I do.(Clean out the inside).
U Open my eyes so Your love I will see;
(Cut eyes shaped like hearts)
U I’m sorry for times I’ve turned up my nose at what
you've given to me;
(Cut a nose in the shape of the cross).
U Open my ears so Your Word I will hear;
(Cut ears shaped like bibles).
U Open my mouth to tell others You’re near.
(Cut the mouth in the shape of a fish).
U Let Your light shine in all I say and do!
(Place a candle inside and light it).
