Freaking Selfie Friday | week 30

Freaking selfie Friday | THE DOOR IN THE WALL

BE LIKE A TREE AND LET THE DEAD LEAVES DROP.

Oh, wait, no….

SOMETIMES I THINK I’M CRAZY BECAUSE I SEE THINGS DIFFERENTLY THAN EVERYONE ELSE.

And there you have it. One year of perfect communication, despite the different continents, or time zones. No problem for us. We owned it. Until now. Call it pregnancy brain, call it chaos, maybe it is still in one of those million unpacked boxes. Doesn’t matter. We have our first communication fail!

We like to wait with shooting until that very last second and then surprise each other with our entry. So the fact we both used a different quote was noticed very last minute, like right before we scheduled this post. We thought about not posting, redoing one of these, but thank heavens our magic quickly re appeared.

We’re going for another battle! With all of you! How much fun is that? To make it easier, you can pick one of the two quotes above. Have fun, be creative, play! Oh, and tag your photo with #freakingselfiefridaythebattlereturns while you’re at it.

Yes? Winner will be picked next week. So. Go!

Our Halloween

Our Halloween | THE DOOR IN THE WALL

As I noticed last year, Halloween is quite big here in the US. And this here probably wins the price of understatement of the century.

But this year we came prepared.

Their costumes, picked out by themselves of course, hang in their closets for days (not weeks, it is still us…), songs were practiced, pumpkin baskets were dusted off. They were ready.

Luckily this time Mr .Husband could join us, and as you can tell on most photos he got into the Halloween spirit pretty fast! Don’t tell him, but next year I might give him that suit in his size. If he behaves well of course.

For me this Halloween was an eye opener to what a year can do to people. I was less overwhelmed by all the decoration (still impressed!), so maybe you do get used to this American ” bigger than life” way of celebrating. But more importantly the children understood what people asked them and even better: they knew what candy to pick! Last time they had no clue and went just for lollipops and M&M’s.

Well, enough talking, here are some photos of this year.
