Halloween. A touchy topic in 2018. Not everyone wants to celebrate or participate. It’s easy to lock the doors and turn off the lights. It’s also easy to run with the spooky and scary stuff too. For us, we fall somewhere in the middle. But not close to the spooky stuff. Mostly because I’d like my kids to sleep for the foreseeable future.
For the last few years, Halloween has looked like us hanging out with friends. We’re so blessed to have friends that live in an awesome neighborhood with great neighbors. She always opens her home and cooks some chili (or something similar) making dinner easy. There’s kids running around and we all walk through the street saying hi and kids get to collect candy.
We also generally check out Fall Fest at our church. Costumes, games, and dinner. Safe and easy fun. Then we all sleep.
I’m sure there will come a time when our boys are setting up scary things to get me to squeal, but at this point they are 2 & 4 so we’re just keeping things light. Someone asked me if my kids thought the bats in our decorations last year were scary. The answer is no because there’s bats flying in our yard every evening. They aren’t thinking of them as creepy, they have heard their mama thank God for the mosquito eaters enough.
