Trick or Treat!

Treat...

Yesterday, I was dressing Sonja in her costume and wishing that I had my camera. I left the house for a little bit to help move our office to our new location and when I returned there was a box sitting on my back step. Wishes do come true!! :) It was A camera! It wasn't our camera, but a new refurbished camera that Canon sent us. They were back logged so far in repairing cameras (there was a recent recall) that they decided to send out cameras that were done and needed an owner so that we could get a camera sooner! It is nice and it is very similar to the one we had the only bummer - they take totally different memory cards and so the cards that I have won't work in it! I'm going to clean them of pictures and try and sell them.

On to the Trick... So I don't spend a lot of time or energy on Halloween, but I do in preparing the candy. Our church supports us by offering candy stickers and postcards to pass out with our candy, that direct people to the church's website and invite parents and kids to our monthly program that we put on. So this year I went and got regular sized chocolate candy bars and taped the postcard to one side of it and the sticker to the other. I prayed that God would use them to reach families in hopes that they would be interested to find out what our church has to offer and more importantly what God has for them.

So my bars are ready and it's time to pass them out. Maybe 7 children show up before 7pm and then NOTHING for another hour and half! I was bummed, I have like 30 some bars to pass out! So I start to shut down for the evening it is after 8pm, my husband is on his way with Nicolai back home and just as I'm going to turn the light off, we get at least seven more that came to the door! So it wasn't 30 children, but at least 14 received a healthy sized bar and an invitation to a fun, zany event!

All who serve in our program do an amazing job. They give of themselves and serve those that do show up. I'm praying that this coming Sunday we pack the house!

I hope that you and your little Trick or Treater had a great night! Here's some photos of ours...
