We don't celebrate Halloween at our house but, we do celebrate "Harvest-time". We even attend a harvest party where the kids get dressed up and have fun. It's a nice alternative to halloween. Growing up, I always enjoyed carving pumpkins and I wanted my kids to share in the fun. My sister-in-law told me about a devotion that she did with her family that shares about Christ while you carve the pumpkin. I looked online and I found one called The Jesus-O-Lantern. Instead of explaining it all to you here, see the link at the bottom of this post to check it out for yourself. Here are some pictures of our pumpkin carving experience. Of course, daddy did most of the carving and Kole and I scooped all of the goop out of the pumpkin, and roasted the seeds (see yesterday's blog). Here our some pics of our fun night!
with the finished pumpkin. The pumpkin. A eating cheerios while watching us!
