Oh my gracious! Can you believe Halloween is THIS Saturday!!! As behind as I am on so many other things, my grandkids and I have already enjoyed fun fall activities including picking out tasty Halloween candy treats to hand out to our new neighbors. I was so proud of my granddaughter this year! She reminded me that many children have peanut and other allergies, not to mention issues with braces. Thanks to her, we are primarily serving non-peanut and non-brace-destroying candies. Most are also milk-free. On top of that, we are making up little Halloween Christian treat packets with the candies, tiny cheap toys & games from the Dollar store (for those kids who can’t have any candy), and cute little cards and bookmarks telling the kids about Jesus and His love for them (a tradition I started doing over 20 years ago). I was pleased to find a great selection of Pass It On Bible verse cards this year at Lifeway Christian Store! I even have some special, hand-made ones courtesy of my sweet grandchild. (If all your grandchildren live far away and you don't want to do any drawing yourself, we have also used cute Happy Halloween and pumpkin clip art with Bible verses to make our own in the past. Trina has a great selection like this. I would add – Jesus loves you BEARY much – God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16 NLT)
My granddaughter has been busy putting the packets together for me as I type this post. I can’t believe I’m actually ready a few days early! I’ll put them by the door, and be all ready for the cute little boys and girls to come show off their costumes to me. I know they’ll all look adorable, with the absolute cutest being my very own grandkids – both here and on the other coast. I'm not predjudiced, am I?!?!?! 🙂 🙂 🙂 How about you? Are you ready for Halloween? 🙂 Don’t forget about the time change the day after!
