This year I've done something a little different. For years our family really hasn't celebrated Halloween.I just kinda felt it was a little weird celebrating ghools and goblins. Instead choosing to celebrate the goodness and beauty that God created. We have always done lots in the way of "fall festivals"......going over and beyond with decorating and celebrating everything autumn. I didn't think bad of people celebrating Halloween...just thought we were different, and that's OK. This year Anna wanted to craft some Halloween something or another. So.....In the October issue of Country Living they had these super cute ghosts.
There are really good instructions and we had alot of fun spending the afternoon together. We hung them in our dining room on the chandelier and we call them Anna's friendly ghosts. I would truly still rather just celebrate fall and harvest, but I also know that Anna will only be a child a short while. So for now....these little fellows join us at meal time, and school time. Then, before you know it, Halloween will be gone and a little girl will be a little older.
I am a very happy wife of 32 years. A mother to three awesome sons and one beautiful daughter. I have homeschooled for 24+ years. I have a deep love for all things old. People, art, material things, lost crafts. I am a crazy lover of The Lord, always seeking to draw closer to Him.
My blog title came from my husband who started calling me Sunshine the day we met. Over the years the name was shortened to Shine and sometimes I wonder if he really even knows my given name!!! I am not an eloquent writer, not gifted that way as so many bloggers are....I just have a heart to share things with my friends and family that are far away yet so very dear to my heart<3.
