Encouraging Hearts and Home-- Happy Halloween!

This is the first year in over 15 years that we are not going Trick- or- Treating.  My boys all decided they're beyond those years and asked instead if we could do a movie night and allow them to pick their favorite treats and snacks.  We're showing Hocus Pocus tonight and I hope the boys like it.  What do you have planned? And Now, for This Week's Encouraging Hearts & Home Blog Hop!   The Encouraging Hearts & Home Bloggers Join your Encouraging Hearts & Home Co-Hosts each week for encouragement and support for your heart & your home . We hope to provide a space that builds each other up and lends a helping hand along the way. With all the negativity in the world, let's shine a positive light!

Iceburg --  Ian picked up on reading this book right where he left off at the end of last school year.  He's almost done and asked me to order him
