When I had kids it became even more fun. I loved dressing them up. Every Halloween we visit a pumpkin patch. We trick or treat and trunk or treat and we often have a party. I used to decorate a lot more, I still do but now it's more subtle.

I really need to live nearer my grand kids so when Grace is gone I won't be an old lady wandering around a pumpkin patch by myself!

Kara Henderson and Dave Richardson went next (not together). They are our stake YW/YM presidents. They both did great. Dave started out talking about when he was a kid and he'd go to the grocery store with his mom and he'd see the toy that came in the cereal box and he'd really want the toy so he would beg for the cereal...even though he didn't necessarily love the cereal. Then at the exit there was a gum ball machine and he'd always always beg for the gum ball. After he got it the gumball would taste good for a minute but then the flavor would go away, the center was hollow and his jaw could hurt because it was so hard to chew. Even though he knew this he'd ask for it time after time. He made the analogy that it's easy to trade what is good for something that has a temporary appeal...like the gumball or the trix submarine (that never really floated).
