Reformation Day / Ho-Down / Halloween

We love our church. Our small OPC church plant in Saint Paul is filled with great people, of all different ages, who occasionally enjoy defying (or at least stretching) the Presbyterian and Minnesotan stereotypes. An example of this was seen on Friday night, as we held our second annual Reformation Day celebration. The event was commemorated with a dinner and square dance in the church basement. And, since Reformation Day coincides with Halloween, costumes were welcome. There was a lot of excitement out on the dance floor, demonstrating that we are not *always* the "frozen chosen." Our kids had a great time -- especially Corrie, who was a square dancing pro. She did experience one moment of terror when one of the men from the church entered the room dressed as Darth Vader, but she recovered when she realized that it was only "Henry's daddy."

Here are some pictures of our little barnyard critters, and one happy cowgirl.
