Gray's First Halloween!

What a fun weekend we had! It actually started on Wednesday with our annual Harvest Festival at church.   I love watching the kids get hyped up on candy haha!

Oh Barry! 
Austin and I in our festive shirts

I thought this was a funny face ha

Gray during his first cakewalk with his BeBe

 Friday night we had a football game which we won.   We are un-defeated wahoo!!! We are actually first in the state (in our division). Saturday, Artie had to work, so Gray and I had a relaxing day at home. When Artie got home we carved pumpkins after Gray went to bed! It was nice to spend some time together working on something festive.  I would have pictures of our cute pumpkins but they shriveled up overnight and were ruined!  Ha!

Sunday Artie had to work and I loaded up Gray for church.  October 31st is a special day for the Lutheran church!  It is Reformation Day! It is the day 493 years ago that Martin Luther posted his 95 theses to the Wittenburg church door.  He wanted to reform the Roman Catholic church.  The Roman Catholic church had made people believe (at the time) that they were the gatekeepers (if you will) to salvation.  Luther understood that it is "by grace alone though faith alone in Christ alone".   Every Lutheran wears red on this day and it is a BIG celebration!  Here we are before church in our red.  I tried to take it myself and it turned out really fuzzy! 

We did not take Gray trick or treating because of all of the church festivities on Sunday but we did get some CUTE pictures!!  

I hope you had a fun and safe Halloween weekend!
