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.
