Ward Halloween party

We had a Halloween party at our church building last night that turned out well.  I had the opportunity to work on the committee (in the end, there were only two of us) that put it together.  Since there are two wards (congregations) and a Chinese branch (smaller congregation), we combined for one big activity.  What's funny is that even though there were three congregations, the number of people there was still less than our one ward back in North Carolina.

This lovely witch and her family have been part of the reason our transition here has gone as well as it has.
 They've been great  to us and for us.

 Bekah with her new friends plus Esther are waiting in line for the YM haunted house.  Matthew's not in any of the pictures because he was busy scaring people in the spook house (I don't do scary anymore).  When it was all over, I was amazed at the mess the spook house made.  They had  big styrofoam blocks as part of their structures that shed all over the place.  I couldn't help but think of Brother Williamson who was responsible for all the buildings in North Carolina.  He would have had a heart attack at the mess.

 Our Elders that we share with the Chinese branch.

Even though Halloween isn't my favorite holiday, I had a good time and was able to meet some more people.  We were even able to bring our neighbors from across the street.  All in all, it was a good night.
