The first Monday of October we have our Halloween safety Family Home Evening lesson. We invite one family over to have the lesson with us and make haunted gingerbread houses. (Hochs if you are reading this we missed you!)
Tonight we had the Pratts over. They have been a huge help in helping us move in and get adjusted to our big change.
We made jumbalaya for dinner with Rita Gomez's recipe, YUMMY!. Cornbread (which is really cornbread with poundcake so it is so tasty) and apple crisp from the apples we picked on the farm today. My new little garage sale dishes were perfect.
We sat outside and were loving this east coast fall weather. The kids made their houses which surprisingly held together quite well. Caroline started sucking the black frosting out of the tube and now has black teeth.
We had our lesson and played the game we do every year. I love watching Annie Kate remember each of these traditions and say things "like oh this is my favorite part"
For traditions are truly a way to welcome each holiday and remind children and adults of great times they once had, so the bad times are harder to forget.
