Halloween PJ pants courtesy of Travis (fabric selection) & my mom (seamstress & shipper). They arrived the day before Halloween.
From one of the "scariest" places known to Americans, the Middle East. We hope everyone had a Happy Halloween. On Saturday, we didn't do much in the way of Halloween. Our compound didn't have any organized Trick or Treating. Instead we attended Travis' softball game, ate some candy at home, and sang Home Means Nevada (October 31st is Nevada Day, too).
Leoni and I attended a Halloween party earlier this week with some other mothers and kids from our ward. They did a really great job organizing it and providing a few fun activities for the toddlers, and it was fun to get dressed up festively more than once this week.
We decided to forgo the $40 pumpkins (no, I did not accidentally hit a zero). Instead, Travis bought a pumpkin pastry at our local bakery, Bateels. Surprisingly, they had something Halloween-ish, though small (about 3 inches in diameter). They have wisely started to catch on to the Americans.
