And . . . actually as we look around . . . it's not much different from
Summer . . .
Just a few differetnt flowers in bloom, maybe a little more rain, or maybe a little less . . .
Here's a few of our recent photos of San Pedro Sula Honduras . . .
(Ever time I see this photo . . . I want to sing the Pioneer Children Sang . . . song :)
We didn't think we would be celebrating Halloween this year. Most of the missionaries and people shared that they didn't really celebrate Halloween here. And the Christmas decorations started to go up in the shopping areas and grocery stores about the beginning of October. Every once in a while we saw some fun cookies or baked goods with a Fall / Autumn / Halloween colors or theme.
So we were actually delighted to get a little note on our front door saying trick or treaters would be gathering at a certain home. Nevertheless we didn't know what to expect. Fortunately we were prepared in the candy department since we regularly stock candy to share with missionaries, members, neighbors, friends etc.
Suddenly our home was bombarded with a melee of costumed little ones with many of their parents, and our neighbors in tow. Norm wasted no time in inviting them ALL into the house . . . before you knew it, he was pulling out family photos, explaining our purpose in Honduras for the next three years, and sharing a message of the Temple. Since many of them are aware of the new LDS Honduras Temple in Tegucigalpa, but don't really know what it is.
So that is what Halloween looked like in Honduras for us!
And now . . .
a little Halloween
from here to there.
Cory and Sara and our Jonny Cakes!
The Team Donovan

And a little glimpse of
Kelsie and her future family to be . . .
She looks like she fits right in :)
And to Dustin and Cami -
Hope you had a wonderful spooky Halloween.

Loves to you all!!
