We dressed up a lot this year. Preschool, "Boo at the Zoo", Crooked Creek Fall Festival, and then Friday night trick-or-treating.
While we don't celebrate evil and darkness that can be associated with Halloween, we are so thankful to celebrate life and children and fun. We love our neighbors and community. We love making memories and hearing kids shriek with laughter and excitement. We love glow-sticks from the dollar store and buckets of candy.
We love smiles.
We love silly faces.
We love long Rapunzel wigs that double as an Elsa wig with a wardrobe change.
We love LOTS of Elsa's. Everywhere.
We love our neighbors and friends.
We love each other. And that's what I want my children to know about Halloween. It's not about darkness. It's about being a LIGHT in our community. And loving others.
