Halloween report

I hope you all had a great Halloween; ours went very well thanks to some good friends who came with us to celebrate it. One of Emma's friend stayed with us and she helped preparing the party. I had a total of 9 kids (one couldn't come). Unfortuntely, Halloween is less and less popular here but we decided to do it anyway because Pierre and Emma always celebrated it.



Of course, we decorated the house. Chuy put a bucket next to the bulb in order to have an orange atmosphere to the livivng room. I don't have lots of decorations to display but it was nice anyway.



We found the two garlands the morning of the party and Chuy put a giant spider web in the entrance .



A good friend greeted the guests:



We installed a new ring ( excuse the spider web - the maid had a week off! )


And we decorated the outside as well: I made the girls inflate the balloons . Our neighbors must have thought we are crazy but it was fun !!!


Then it was time to carve the pumpkin and I made my slaves the girls do it. As you can see on Emma's face: she enjoyed every minute of it !!! Her friend on the other end loved it !


Have you ever seen some bunny ears on a pumpkin?


Then I couldn't resist taking some pictures of my cuties outside:


And our guest arrived: we didn't mean to do it but all the costumes were a nice mix of black and orange. They were all very cute.


My friend did get a costume for herself and I took a picture of them on my stairs:


Then my neighbor ( you know the one who has a nice girlfriend ... ) was leaving and the kids rushed to his door to grab some candies:


Esteban did his own make-up: too cute !!!


We finally went trick or treating and the kids were very, I mean VERY excited !


I think I didn't feed those kids enough during snack time because they were so desesperate to have some candies ... We did get some odd stuffs: an old lady gave some coins (not enough for the 9 kids though) and a Hello kitty key chain ...


And a last picture with nine almost exhausted likds (why almost? because minutes later they were dancing in my living room ... )
And don't forget today is your last day to enter the giveaway !!!
