we will be running around the “sweets and treats sweet shoppe” selling concessions with our “youts”.. which, by the way, james has started calling our youth group high schoolers “youts,” and i actually don’t love it all that much, but it’s catching on and now even parents are calling them that! so..yes, we’ll be doing that.
i love that we make a safe (and un-scary) place for kids to come and get amazing candy and go through a whole wild world..this year the theme is candy factory! people are so creative and our building has been transformed (all for the period of a few hours on halloween)..i can’t wait to post some pictures. here’s a lookie at last year if you’re so inclined 🙂
although this isn’t my favorite holiday, i do love this time of year and i’m excited to ring it in with some candy and the appropriate dishes (which i plan on making soon): pumpkin stew, pumpkin seeds (already had a buncha those!), pumpkin muffins (tj’s from a box=so good!) and..pie!! cant wait for that either.
