living in gratitude*

From the fullness of His grace we have all 
received one blessing after another.
~ John 1:16 ~

our hearts are conscious of our treasures." - Thornton Wilder

1st halloween ever*

Halloween is BIG here where we live... we decided to take part for the fun of dressing up and for the trick-or-treating.  Around the corner from where we live there was an arm and a leg sticking out from the postbox and kellen asked me every day for a week...mommy, please don't get an arm and a's scary'.  

We've made it a positive and sweet halloween... i introduce to you... 

Batman & Tinkerbell 

 can we please get going? Where are all the treats? 

 come bella, this way...

most of the people in our compound gathering at the swimming pool
before we go out trick-and-treating

there were quite a big number of children... 

 batman protected tinkerbell through the chaos

 there were some brilliant costumes, even the adults dressed up... 

enough now! where is all this treats you are speaking off? 

nobody is put off by the rain...

 made for brilliant puddle jumping... 
think bella enjoyed that the most... 

"ok, i'm tired. go home. sweets are done. 
no more treats. time for bed".
a very tired little tinker bell... and batman? 
he was off sharing all his treats with the kids
knocking on our door xx

*it was his idea to share his treats with the kids when ours was finish... 
i'm such a proud mama :-)
