Hope everyone had a very fun Halloween. Here are a few photos from our celebrations.
Brian’s Middle School had 3 days of dress up. One day was Wacky Day – he wore a nice serving spoon on a lanyard. Why go all out when you can go with one really great accessory? For 80’s day, I managed to convince that he could really rock the rock look, and he did too.
On Halloween, both kids got to dress up. Brian went as a knight and Honor went as a zombie pirate.
The embassy hosted a big party for the kids after Halloween and both kids were very helpful with set up and running carnival games. Honor and a friend helped with a bean bag and ring toss game. Brian helped with a fishing game, and I helped run a ‘Monster Hunter’ game, where we had a good spirited volunteer dress up, act ‘monsterous’, and allowed little kids assault him with wet sponges. Good man!
Here is the bean bag target that we made for the carnival. Honor helped me paint it… and I painted Honor. That’ll teach her to dare me…
Rather than plain ol’ square bean bags, we made fancy ones…
Minecraft bags – Zombie, Ghast and Creeper
And we also had a bat bag, witchy bag and mummy bag
Before heading for the games, I painted my death monk hubby.
And Honor and I decided to be pirates together. We had thought about being zombie pirates, but decided to be ‘regular’ pirates instead.
Honor got to be the Captain…
