A Halloween FHE!

For FHE, we created Satan's Web! Brett made the web and then we talked about how the adversary tries to break down families.

Camille and Gabe thought of things we shouldn't do, things Satan wants us to do, so our families will be weak, and then put up the sticky words on the web.
They made our spider, who waits for his prey to get caught in his web. He is too cute to represent Satan though, and is at a disadvantage, having only 4 legs. His job is going to be a little tough.

The other evening, Camille said "I have to go look on Satan's Web to see what I can't do."

We also made ghosts to decorate our window. They are French ghosts who have the added bonus of wearing berets. Camille just loved that.

Gabe's chose special eyes for his ghost. It reminds me of the clown in Steven King's "IT." We had lots of fun!

Fall(ing) Around!

Fall is such a bright and even hopeful time of the year despite the dying trees. They sure glow though in the process, an essential death that creates such beauty. Camille went with her Kindergarten Class on an outing to Schuh Farms. She is standing in front of the three baby pigs. They were such cute little grunters.

This is the Mama of all pumpkins.
The children were able to feed the chickens. They loved pecking from the corn cobs.
Camille was so delighted.

Who doesn't love an old truck? I am sure it is a classic and used to be a big help around the farm.

We wanted to capture some of the Fall colors because they are disappearing.

There are three huge Maples off of Ferry St. that I am so grateful to drive passed in awe of everyday. Most of the leaves are on the ground now. They still own their fiery spark.
Camille's fiesty personality matches these leaves.
Here comes a skipping Gabe.

Love that smile.
So sweet!

School Days. . .

First Tooth Lost! (in a chocolate covered rice krispy treat).
Smile Sunshine!

Camille designed a "What I am going to be for Halloween" doll that will be hung in the halls at school. She is going to be a Cowgirl!

The hat cracks me up a bit because it reminds me of the Beverly Hillbillies. Dad helped with that part. She did such a great job.

Okay, so I didn't take a picture of Gabe's first day of preschool. He does have two more years after this. I can just say this was his first day, right? I am taking it now because as we were walking through the playground area after school, I heard some kid say to his friends, "Look at that kid and his backpack. It is so huge!" I felt I should capture this monstrosity. It is rather large. Camille's is even smaller. He can handle it.
