Last weekend we had a Fall party, complete with pumpkin carving, chili, cornbread, and a huuuuge slab apple pie.

We had a great time with cousins and brothers and sisters of all ages :) And not one person was hurt, not even when big, scary knives were brought out momentarily...yipes!
Last night we were surrounded by white faces. Our oldest two are involved in a mime (yes, you did read that correctly!) group called the Agape Mime Team. They act out songs in order to present the message of the gospel- the love, hope, forgiveness and freedom that Jesus brings. They had a presentation last night at a church carnival, and so we all got dressed and headed out for some fun...

I packed my little bug around in my arms for most of the night, so I didn't get that many shots. Also, so bummed- right as I was taking a picture with my grungey love, my phone died! :( But there were fun games to be played, candy to be won, and a bounce house that our little princess remembered from last year (and spent a good part of the night in). The mime team presented 4 songs, and this was a special night, as it was Sophia's first presentation, and Gabe had a lead in one of the songs and did well with all the signing. After it was over, a group of the mimes went around the neighborhood to trick-or-treat...can you imagine opening your door and seeing 15 mimes? Horrific! We headed home, and Mr. Bee took the kids around our neighborhood very quickly, as mostly it was shut down. We missed seeing neighbors, but we were happy to be part of the outreach, and we had a great time. We are looking forward to all the fun that November promises to bring! Hope you had a fun and safe Halloween! I'll leave you with this...
