Please take note of Maddie's writing on the wall in the background....ha!
Mario and I were even toying with the idea of being Super Mario (him, obviously), the Princess (me) and a mushroom (Maddie) next year...too cute, right?!? We also plan to attend Fall Festivals throughout the week leading up to Halloween and on the day of as we did this year but I honestly feel like we're still celebrating Halloween but just calling it something different. So I don't really know at this point!
I read a few articles about Christians celebrating Halloween and really liked what a particular article had to say:
“Ultimately, Christian participation in Halloween is a matter of conscience before God. Whatever level of Halloween participation you choose, you must honor God by keeping yourself separate from the world and by showing mercy to those who are perishing.” (Source: Grace to You)
So I'll be keeping that in mind, praying about it a bit more and seeing where our hearts lead us next year.
Here are a few pictures of our cute little lady ready to head to the Fall Festival:
People thought she was a bunny at first because of her ears but her tail clearly doesn't look like that of a bunny. She's a kitten, folks...sheesh! I guess I have to step up my costume making skills ;)...I'll get there!
And she got in this position all on her own...smart kitty!
We had tons of fun and laughter making up her face and she was cute either way...whether bunny or kitty!
...and when she just had to bring the mouse with her I thought "perfect"! A kitty and her mouse.
People still didn't get it, ha...smh!
What are your thoughts on Halloween?!?
