The boys on the other hand have a better understanding. They are moving into that age when so many kids think the scary part of Halloween is cool. This is when haunted houses and gory costumes become a must. So rather than foster that attitude, Paul took them to Judgement House at the Baptist Church. For those of you that don't know what Judgement House is, it is a walk-through drama depicting the consequences of sin, both is this life and the next, and ending with an opportunity to commit your life to Christ. They thought it was great! A much better option for teens.
The girls are too young for that and wanted to go Trick-or-Treating. So, I let them rummage through their dress-up clothes and off we went. Just to a few houses of people we know. And, they were happy with that....mostly because I already bought them two big bags of candy anyway! They just needed to make sure they weren't missing out on anything. They weren't.
