And, as usual, Molly Beth wasn't a fan of all the slime.
Suzannah had a fun idea to see what face we should put on it. She suggested we all draw a face and then we could vote. I'll let you know who won tomorrow.
And just for fun, I read this sweet little parallel to tell the kids as you carve your pumpkin:
Choose your pumpkin: This reminds us that God chose us.
Cut off the top: Just like when God reaches into our hearts and cleans out all of the yucky stuff inside - all the seeds of doubt, hate, greed, etc... we can clear out the inside of the pumpkin.
Carve: as when God carves a new smiling face in each of us. II Corinthians 5:17, "Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old is gone the new has come!"
Light: allow His light inside us to shine so that others can see Him!
