A Sneak Peak!!

Tonight is going to be a very busy night. Luke and I have a couple of projects going on tonight. We decided to make it fun and turn it into a date night!

First of all, we're going into town for a few things we need for our projects, and eating dinner somewhere.

Then we're going to carve our pumpkins! I went back and forth over and over about what I wanted to carve. I finally decided on something SOO simple that I don't think even I could screw it up. I think it will turn out nicely, though. I guess you'll just have to wait until my next post for the big reveal!

Tomorrow night is "Hallelujah Night" at our church. It is a Halloween alternative for the children in the community. There is a Chili supper, games, face painting, bounce houses, and Trunk-or Treat in the parking lot for the kids. Oh, and lots of candy for them too :-)

If you've never heard of Trunk-or-Treat, it's when you decorate the trunk of your car with a theme, and kids walk from car to car collecting candy and "oohing" and "awing" at the trunks. Usually the trunks have some sort of Bible story or church-related theme. 2 years ago, my mom and I decorated ours with the theme of "Queen Esther" (I got to dress up as her!) Here was our van...I think we did a pretty good job! Okay, so it was mostly MOM. She's the creative one!
(P.S. - I'm kind of missing my long hair right now!)
On Wednesday, Luke and I found out they needed more people to set up trunks this year, so we volunteered. That meant that we had two days to get everything together. We have a lot of it put together, but we still have a lot left to do! I hope we get it all put together in time, and it's not too lame! Here is a sneak peak...we are going with Psalm 119:103 as your theme: "How SWEET are your words to my taste; sweeter than honey to my mouth." Here is a sneak peak of our decorations...I think you can see what direction we're going with this :-)
Bubble gum, anyone ;-)
(My camera was set to the outdoor sunny setting. That's why the color's so off!)

Anyway, I think tonight AND tomorrow night are going to be super fun! Which is so great, because things at work are just going downhill quickly. I'm trying not to let it get to me! And I think a fun weekend + tonight is just what I need!

On a sidenote, what is everyone dress as for Halloween? A guy at work and his wife are going as Jon and Kate Gosselin. They are dressing like them (giant bling in both ears for "Jon" and all :-P) and they're just attaching a bunch of baby dolls to their shirts somehow. I feel bad for the Gosselins right now, but I couldn't help think that this was a HILARIOUS costume idea! Luke and I were invited to a party at his house (the guy from work, NOT Jon Gosselin's ;-)), but I'm not really sure what our plans are right now. If we do go, we'll have to think of a costume to wear QUICKLY!


  1. Aww, love the Esther picture! Great idea! I'm completely in love with the story of Esther anyway...she was pretty awesome.

    Have fun with Luke! It's always so much fun doing stuff like that together!

  2. I hope your weekend is just the cure for what you need! I've heard that the Jon and Kate thing is the "it," costume this year, kind of like Sarah Palin last year, and there is even a Kate wig. I think it's really sad though-nothing like kicking a person/family when they are down.

  3. I like the picture of you as Esther! The trunk or treat thing sounds cool - I don't have a problem with church-hosted Halloween alternatives like that - sounds like fun!


Thanks so much for taking the time to read and comment! I read and appreciate each and every one. Blessings to you!
