Thank-you to everyone that came to our event. Throughout the night we probably had over 300 people from the community stop by our house. It was a great time. We handed out candy bags with scriptures, cute little stuffed bears, and for the first time we ran out of hot chocolate! It was chilly. We even saw a few snowflakes!

The flash on my camera is on the fritz so thanks to my friend Cheri, we actually have a few photos of the event.
It was hard to imagine that we won't be here next year, dancing with our neighbours and spreading a little light but our hope is that this event will inspire someone to be a light on their own street. You don't have to have a band, you could have a ghetto blaster and an ipod. Hand out coffee for parents if you don't like hot chocolate. Make the event your own and be creative. The important part is to be a light on your street and to engage with people around you.

Even though it is our last time hosting the event in Milton, we still think it is a fantastic way to meet the people in your neighbourhood. So who of our Milton friends is going to carry on the tradition?
I wonder if we should warn the people who buy our house? They may need a lot more candy......

Our new house in Hamilton will be a great place to host a Shine Your Light event next year........mmmm I guess I will have to start planning my costume.
