"And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall."

Why teenagers shouldn't be allowed to trick or treat ;)



My youngest teenager still likes to go out trick or treating. He is on that fence between wanting to be a kid and wanting to be grown up. His costume was a bedraggled-hair wig...period. He carried a small cooler with the strap around his neck. Rather than say, "Trick or Treat." His plan was to say, "donations!!?, donations!!?"

We let him go out anyway because he was taking a couple of the younger boys with him.

...at least he didn't come back with a pillow case full of candy like some of our other kids.

ours are 15 and 16 and gave up halloween eight years ago due to reasons of faith - no, we're not jehova witlesses!

i still buy several bags of assorted candy and put it in a large bowl on the counter for all to have throughout the month.

Nanc, I can understand your reason for abstaining from Halloween.

It isn't exactly a very HOLY holiday. I don't like my kids to dress up in bloody and gorey costumes. For them it is just a fun day to dress up and get candy.

ON a side note to this: we don't give out Easter baskets ON Easter. WE do the eggs and baskets the day before so that we can focus on the real meaning of that day ON Easter.

I'm disappointed that you don't have ANY Bon Jovi on your playlist. :(

Starla, the choices for it were limited...in fact I didn't add a LOT of songs that I like...as I said, it was a sample.

It is still a work in progress.

I always hand out something like a single dum-dum or smarty to an un-costumed teen, and I make sure to give something really good to the little ones right in front of 'em.

My hubby says I'm mean. >:)
