The kids at church today were quite wired. Most of them were excited about all the candy they got at Friday’s and Saturday’s Halloween parties, the rest because they knew it was waiting for them at home.
After Sacrament Meeting, for the 2nd week in a row, little Autumn came up and hugged me. I asked her mom if she could walk with me back to the Primary room. She held my hand and for the first time, she actually started talking to me. She told me all about going trunk-or-treating twice. It was precious.
Primary was its usual kick. The kids are always fun and I love to hear them sing. They sing because they love to sing. Why can’t we as adults be more carefree about singing? It really is good for the spirits to just sing because you are happy.
After church, after lunch, and after a nap, I made dinner and dessert. For dinner I made sausage, biscuits, mashed potatoes, and pepper gravy. We also had salad and cooked beet greens and swiss chard. For dessert I made gooey cake with apple slices in the cheese cake part.
The sisters stopped by, and I sent them on their way with some gooey cake.
Because Elizabethe and I do our best to honor the sabbath day, and keep it holy, we turned the porch light off, and went to bed hoping it would discourage trick-or-treaters from coming to the house. Normally, we welcome the trick-or-treaters, but when it falls on a Sunday, we prefer to participate in activities on Friday or Saturday.
Next year, however, watch out…. Brent’s going all out on Halloween!!!
