Caleb had been looking forward to this day for a while. I LOVE traditions and that this is a time he looks forward to spending as a family!
Joseph, intense about his pumpkin!
And we wonder where Caleb gets his intensity from!
Our pumpkins on Halloween night!
This year we did something a little different. I found this poem and prayer that we read as we carved pumpkins and it opened up some really great dialogue about God and sin.
