Federated Fall Fun Night

Evan at the Fall Fun Night

On Friday, October 27, First Federated Church hosted another Fall Fun Night for preschool and elementary children.

There was free games, activities, candy and a whole lot of fun for everyone.

It took a huge team of volunteers to make the night possible. Jeni Baugher did a great job as the director of the event this year. She even joined in the fun by being part of the action in a horse costume.
Last I heard, we had over 850 guests plus a whole lot of volunteers. I know my kids had a lot of fun and I saw a lot of other happy faces too.

Fall Fun Night Giant SlideThe coolest thing at the Fall Fun Night this year was the giant slide. If the line wasn't so long throughout the night I might have given it a try myself.

Ean turns 3!

Ean 3rd Birthday-019

Ean turned three this month. He had a lot of fun at his birthday party opening presents, blowing out the candles on his cupcake, and being the center of attention.

This year the theme behind all the gifts were trains.

He got a pretty big train table, lots of track, more trains, and a bunch of things to unwrap. Ean is now old enough to get really excited about presents and his enthusiasm was contagious.
