Falling for Fall

I love fall.  It means cool, crisp days; glorious displays of outdoor color; and cozy sweaters.

Around here, it also means Reformation Celebration and pumpkin carving!

Every year, our church hosts a Reformation Celebration to remember the day Martin Luther posted his 95 Theses on the Wittenberg church door. 

Above, Sam tries his luck at the candy fish pond.

Below, everyone awaits the announcement of winners for the costume contest, handed out by our very own "Justin Beaver."

We also had some dancing to celebrate!  We had a caller/instructor who had us dancing Russian, French, Celtic and American folk dances.  Everyone seemed to have a great time!

The next day, it was time to carve the pumpkins!

The kids were not happy about the slime factor involved in removing the seeds, but their efforts paid off in a couple of very fine looking jack-o-lanterns.  

This scary fellow (below) showed up at the Reformation Celebration!  Anyone know who he is?
