Welcome....Here's a glimpse of our happenings!

The verses that have REALLY spoken to me (Sarah) lately....

"Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock." Matthew 7:24-25

Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings. I Peter 5:8-9

From one man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live. God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us. For in him we live and move and have our being. As some of your own poets have said, 'We are his offspring.' Acts 17:26-28

May the words of my mouth and the mediation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O Lord, my Rock, and my Redeemer. Psalm 19:14

So be careful to do what the Lord your God has commanded you; do not turn aside to the right or to the left. Walk in all the way that the Lord your God has commanded you, so that you may live and prosper and prolong your days in the land that you will possess. Deuteronomy 5:32-33

God, our God, will take care of the hidden things but the revealed things are our business. It's up to us and our children to attend to all the terms in this Revelation. Deuteronomy 29:29 (The Message)

Halloween Walk....

Last night (Saturday, the 30th), Marc and I took Luke to our city's downtown area for their annual Halloween Walk.

Now, I realize many of you locals who are reading this have probably been down to the annual Halloween Walk, but we hadn't. I knew ahead of time that A LOT of people went to this event, but neither Marc nor I truly realized that A LOT of people do indeed attend this event.

Wow -- what a Z.O.O....Don't get me wrong -- it's a great event, but oh my.

I attempted to take some photos to capture the lines of people, but I'm not sure my photography skills do it any justice.

(And yes, the downtown streets were closed for the event -- so, NO traffic).

Luke actually did very well for being a young 2 years old and NOT having a stroller or a wagon (we decided to make him walk which ultimately ended up in Marc having to hold him for a good portion of the event).

About 2/3 the way through, Luke was D.O.N.E....And, we were NOT one of those parents who keep going even though their child is clearly done. So, we left at that point.


But, the highlight of the evening was, of course, seeing Luke and his first "true" Trick-or-Treating experience.

Let's just say he was quite cute in his little train engineer costume. But hey -- I'm a bit biased, I know.

(And before I go any further, Luke REFUSED to wear his train engineer hat. He insisted on wearing Marc's Koch Industries hat -- which is where Marc used to work. If you want to see Luke in his full costume, check out my LAST POST. And, the good news is that, tonight, on actual Halloween night, Luke DID wear the appropriate head attire for his costume).

And, just to prove that I CAN indeed make this particular blog post about something other than Luke -- here are a couple of cute costumes we saw at this event.

First -- in the distance in this photo -- the "shower...." (It's the guy with the polka-dotted shower curtain around him).

And Second....The child in the John Deere combine costume....
