Halloween 2012

Ana’s favorite holiday is Halloween.  Why?  I have no idea.  Though Halloween has increasingly gotten more and more popular throughout the four years we have lived in Peru, it is nothing like it is in the states.  So when I heard that Cedar Lane was hosting their annual “Trunk-or-Treat” the last weekend we were home, I was so thrilled.  Ana and Maggie had no clue what was coming.

My mom participated with her trunk, and she helped me get the kids ready in their costumes.  It was so much fun, and I have to give a big shout-out to my sis-in-law, Marci, for handing down Abigail and Emily’s costumes to AG and MK, and to Andrea Abrahams for letting me borrow one of Liam’s costumes.  The kids had a blast.  They have now experienced true “trick-or-treating” (I guess to an extent).  And there were no melt-downs when we left the candy behind.  It was a great experience all-around…

A fun memory I have of Halloween is that my mom always let me wear make-up to match my costume. I thought it would be special for Ana and Maggie to have Gram “paint their faces.”
her skin is “the fairest in the land”
Snow White
I love how she chooses to pose her mouth because of the red lipstick. Ha!
the cutest little ladybug I have ever seen
No. Those are not fake eyelashes!
Our little kangaroo
He was so hard to get a picture of!

We ended the night with a picture with Aunt Katy. My kids love her.
