Finally, A Halloween Post or Two.

October just flew by! I can't believe it is November. Only 23 more days until Black Friday and I am already making my lists. I'll save that for another post!

Last weekend, we had our October Sunday School Social ~ A Pumpkin Carving Contest! It was a blast, and we had some really neat pumpkins. This one was fun because it involved the kids. They painted pumpkins while we carved 'em.

Cade & Christian were "TOO COOL" to paint pumpkins. Instead, they just broke the rules and climbed on the playhouse. But it did make for a cute picture!



SaraGrace did a mighty fine job painting her pumpkin. Surprisingly, she got more paint on her pumpkin than on her shirt. She had a blast.

I signed up to bring a dessert, so I thought I would try out these cute little spider cupcakes. The kids, especially Cade, loved them!


Finally, Rob and I were slap out of creativity when it came to our pumpkin. We just didn't have it in us. So, here is our pumpkin, in typical Vaughn fashion!



We are so blessed to have such a wonderful group of people in our SS class. It took us a long time to start going, but we are so glad we did. Some of our BEST friends came out of this class, and we keep gaining more and more as our church family grows. If you don't currently attend a small group, I encourage you to do so. They can become such an amazing support group, as well as some great Christian friends. For the first time in our married lives, Rob and I have an ABUNDANCE of fine, Christian friends that we can have a great time with, and they help keep us accountable. If you don't have any ideas where to start, let me do my job as the "Welcome Wagon " and invite you to ours. We meet at First Baptist Church Alachua, every Sunday morning at 9:30 am. By the way, I am the official welcome wagon for our class. It is a "real" job:) Also, if you are interested, Rob and I host a weekly Bible Study at our home on Thursday nights. You can come, bring your kids, enjoy some dinner and fellowship, as well as some great discussion. Email me if you are interested.

Your small group sounds awesome!! We're on a new series in Sunday School right now called "What if we REALLY cared?" ...it's about how small groups are supposed to be each others' strength, etc. great series!
