The power of praying

Ok, so I found this on another friend's blog, and I loved the idea. I long to raise Stone to be a godly man. I want to help in laying the foundation of his faith. I love the idea of having specific prayers that I can pray over him when we are going throughout the day. I plan on writing these prayers/verses out and putting them all over the house, so that I can see them and pray them out loud for Stone.

I have seen prayer calendars, where you pray every day for a different quality for your children, and I love that idea. This is a different take on praying for your kiddos. I think the bottom line is that we just need to be praying. If you want to put the button on your blog, just click here.

Our little penguin

My mom, Stone, and I headed to Canton on Halloween to enjoy the beautiful weather and look at the fun things out there. Stone was such a trooper and enjoyed the day. He just rolled with the punches as we walked around. I am so thankful that he has such a laid back personality. He loves to be around people and see what is going on around him.

We spent the evening at home. Doug and I dressed Stone in his costume and headed outside to pass out candy. We had the best seat in the neighborhood as we sat on the driveway in beach chairs and watched the trick-or-treaters. Stone enjoyed himself for about 10 minutes and then he was ready to go inside. He was ready for his bath, bottle, and bed. We were able to snap a few pictures of him in his costume.

Our little guy was done! Can't you tell. :)
