2014- Witches Walk and Trunk or Treat
This is our 2nd year that our church opened our parking lot up and decorated or vehicles and ourselves! My husband and I both picked a book character! Can you guess who we are?
I'm sure you all could guess my husband- "Where's Waldo!" But many of you might be struggling with me.... I'm not Rainbow Bright, or the Rainbow Fish!
Still confused about me? It is the character from the book, "A Bad Case of Stripes." I love the story and it was a delight when kids knew who I was! EAT your Lima Beans!
My two kiddos were the cutest around, we have an adorable Lady Bug and Hulk! Then I have a few of the other vehicles that came out! I think we had 17 total vehicles/trunks in our lot and next year I hope we have even more! We were also blessed with a 70 degree day for this so tons of families were out!! IT WAS A BLAST!
12 years ago I was 18 and still praying for a miracle as our family surround my mom to say our good byes. My mom might not have been healed here on Earth but she did have victory as she went to be with her savior on October 30th 2002. Her pain was gone and the stupid leukemia was no more!! Selfishly I was very angry the cancer took her life and it took a long time to understand Gods plans for me and my family. Now 12 years later I look and realize how my faith has become much stronger through this and amazed how often God has used my testimony to love on others as they go through tough times. I may have had her physically here on earth for 18 years but her prayers she prayed through out the years are still coming to light. I often still ask, what would my mom say or do or think of many different situations I face! I know I am her legacy and I pray God would bring me deeper and deeper in his love and understanding so I can be a light all of my days like my mom Bette Norden! I love you mom! I miss your smile and your laugh and your hugs! I hold on to the promise that I will see you again in heaven!
Please let me know if I can pray for you if you are going through a troubled time! Trust me, during those times God is truly closest to you!

It's National Red Ribbon Week and I am in love with my daughter's school theme for the day- "I 'mustache' you to say NO to drugs!"
I will be honest, I wish my school would have been as cool as my daughters and did this theme. :)
Back to the real topic- SAY NO TO DRUGS! At what age do you start to talk about drugs with your kids?

This year we took the easy route when it came to pumpkins. I am still thinking that we might carve them on Friday since we might not trick or treat for very long since its going to be very COLD!
Last year I found these Mr. Potato head pieces in a package for pumpkins on clearance so it was an easy buy. My kids had fun picking and changing their pieces for their pumpkin.
