There has been a great debate in our home over whether or not we would dress up and/or participate in Halloween events and activities. Jon grew up in a family that didn't do anything for Halloween. In my family we dressed up every year. Even though we grew up with these differences Jon and I are responsible for what we do with our family.
So we decided to dress up Olivia and attend the Fall Festival at church. This festival is an outreach to kids around town and we were excited to be able to support this ministry. Unfortunately, I didn't have the time to come up with something for me and Jon to wear.
I don't know if we will dress up every year. There may come a day where the Lord convicts us and asks us not to do anything for Halloween. When that day comes I pray that we will listen to His leading, because honoring God is more important to us than a holiday.
Below, I posted some pictures of Olivia's first Halloween!!
