So I was asked a question the other day that caught me off guard...
Do you celebrate Halloween?

Umm.. I have never had to answer that. 
I guess I should have saw it coming (maybe)? My kids did just start attending a Christian School that does not recognize this "holiday".

Unable to answer this question seamlessly when asked I thought I would re-address here.

Do we celebrate Halloween???

I don't celebrate evil. Or darkness. Or Witches, Ghosts and Goblins.
But I DO CELEBRATE KIDS. And Princesses. And Fairies. And Ninja's. And Doctors. And Candy. And Neighbors. And Community.

If we are the LIGHT in the world why would we hide in our homes on this "dark day"?!?! What point are we proving by doing this?
Besides what other day of the year does your entire neighborhood show up on your door???
So I say welcome them and give them the best candy!

If you don't agree with me... that is okay. We still BOTH belong to Christ!

This year on Halloween we went candy collecting and visited with some special people!!!

 This was prior to Kendall getting into her costume for the night... I think Ry nailed it when she introduced her as a "runner"!

 These faces. Pure joy. How could we not Celebrate Kids on this day... Besides if you knock on my door any other day of the year they will more than likely be dressed similar (we dress up a lot).
 Kendall DOC McStuffins at your service!

Visiting with Great Grandpa

So bummed I did not take more pictures but we also interrupted Horsey G'ma card party, Visited with Grammie and Papa (My parents), spent time with Nana (my Mom) and ended the night at Grandma and Papas (Greg parents).
Like I mentioned earlier. We CELEBRATED community. 

What a fun night. 
Lastly. As a Mom I am THANKFUL for the great pumpkin who takes (most) of their hard earned candy away and leaves a toy!
(sugar and my kids don't get along)

I leave you with this sweet picture. 
Dressed up and ready to do a little gymnastics!

Loaded Diaper?!?!?

Today's post title comes to you from the one and only Greg Garka... Thanks for the idea babe!

As far as Mason is concernced today was another good day for our little man!
We made our goal and got up and went on a total of three walks. The last walk of the night he spotted the “playroom” and was interested so we stopped and visited with our neighbors while he played. It was the highlight of the day.

His appetite decreased today but that is to be expected since he hadn’t yet had a bowel movement (in 6 days)– however about 60 minutes ago things changed in that department and I am happy to report his bowels are working and back in action…

During his echo he was again a crowd pleaser and was on his best behavior. The technician said that he was the best 3 year old she has done. It is so funny; he gets upset when something is about to happen and he doesn’t understand what. He tells us he is scared and then after we explain to him what they are going to do and that it won’t hurt – he is…
