halloween 2010




and then there was halloween
which just sort of happened here and there
while we were in the middle
of everything else.
the costumes you just may recognize
from years past,
as our costume chest
as of now,
only consists of these two costumes.
thank goodness milla wanted to be the bride
that avi chose last year
(and after we took it in for her last year,
we just let it out to milla's size this year),
and the butterfly costume
just happened to fly for avi.
and with a kind sister
to send me a quick fix for andreas
we were set.

the trick-or-treat
at the expat community was last weekend,
and the actual halloween was spent
dressing up in costume
and carving that mr. potato head-shaped pumpkin
to fit milla's drawing
of a jack-o-lantern.
then we lit him up,
lit up the fireplace,
turned the lights down,
and kicked off the holiday season
with a little bit of nostalgia for home.
