We have enjoyed the different resources that are available from Vision Forum. They have everything from toys, homeschool material to Christian books. They are fast becoming a favorite at our house. Anna has had her eye on the child harp for a while now. Vision Forum also has interesting conferences that we hope to attend some day.

Halloween is definitely NOT my favorite holiday. To be sure, I liked it when I was a kid, but as an adult... nope, don't like it at all. However, my kids (like all kids) love candy!! And they really get into the creative side of what to be for Halloween and how to use most of what we have around the house to put it together. We are not big on purchasing costumes. All day they were so anxious to dress up and go trick-or-treating. Finally, after an early dinner of something healthy to off-set the inevitable sugar rush, they dressed and we snapped some pictures before heading out.

They also had fun watching Dad carve their pumpkins for them. :) They designed it or told Dad what they wanted and he made it happen!
|Kate's pumpkin (love the glasses!)|
|Anna's pumpkin (a horse)|
|Will's pumpkin (good old scary face)|
|Dan's pumpkin (cute, just like him!!)|
Nate didn't do a pumpkin this year. I don't think he noticed. :)
