Halloween


I cheated this year. I have to say, I still feel a little guilty about it too.
This year was the first year their costumes weren't homemade.
After a lot of research, time and a few patterns,
I realized that we couldn't make what we wanted,
cheaper then what we could buy costumes for.
So our zoo crew enjoyed themselves and I didn't worry so much about
pinning or sewing or gathering or decorating.
Admittedly, it was a guilty pleasure. And so nice not to have to work so hard, or worry about getting it all done. ( I might go back to making them next year though. Not because of guilt, but the costumes just look so much cuter and more original.)

After a little Halloween party here, we called up our favorite couple in Belgium,
Mr. James and Miss Alina,
and asked if we could drop in to wish them "Happy Halloween" and 'trick or treat' them.
They were incredibly welcoming, and it was great to have a bit of a visit.
An amazing couple, James and Alina pulled out fine Neuhaus chocolates for the kid's treat bags
and then set them on the couch for a 3-D movie.
What other kids in the world are 'treated' on Halloween to such fine specialties?
Thanks James and Alina! You're the best!
