Weekend Adventures: Harvest Carnival and Child Heroes
Halloween is one of those “hot topics” that each year as Kai gets older I think of what will we do as a family? As a child I trick or treated until I was around seven or eight and there was a huge sweep of concern about candy being tampered with and then as my mom became involved in church it was deemed “Satan’s holiday.” I’m sure some of you can relate and it was really a damper on my day when I no longer could get candy by the pillow case load…
So now that we’re parents and I’ve had time to really come to my own conclusions about any and all holidays – Mike and I decided the best approach is the same way we do anything. Either we give it a purpose or we explain why we do something else…but we will always see it as an opportunity to serve and learn!
Our church hosts a Harvest Carnival each year and this year we helped out. Since we agreed no costumes I made our shirts! If you’ve been around long enough you know that Kai is obsessed with Yo Gabba Gabba! So He was beyond thrilled to be his favorite heroes in the whole world! Praise God for felt and it’s magical wonders ha.
Mike even loved his shirt and joined in on the fun! I had a blast making the shirts and am looking forward to doing something special each year. I hope you had a wonderful time with your families and had tons of candy!!
