Our compound doesn't have trick or treating since most people are not American, so Halloween was pretty low key this year. We did have matching Halloween pajamas, but, alas, not photographic proof. Just this cute picture with Burke's Halloween attire.

Downward Dog

Burke must like to stay limber because this has been going on for over a month. He is just hard to photograph like this.

Because this usually happens before I get a picture.

Buy Me Some Peanuts and Cracker Jacks

When Travis' softball games are early enough, we like to go to watch. Leoni mostly likes to eat snacks. She was cracking me up while mimicking the players from another team eating snacks on the grass.

Not this girl. She always manages to fit into small places.

Shout Hooray!

Travis turned 34!
It was a very low-key day, but we managed to at least decorate and have cake.

Halloween Carnival

To get in the Halloween spirit, we attended a Halloween carnival put on by the Doha Mums organization I belong to. There were bouncy houses, face painting, crafts, games, etc.

It is hard to get a picture with 4 people all looking good at the same time

Especially when two are kids

The carnival was at a new conference space in Katara. The black & silver chairs in the lobby were perfect for Halloween, though they are the norm here.

Leoni & her friend Sebastian

This is where Leoni spent the majority of her time.

Burke did a little bouncing of his own

Happy girl

Good morning

Burke helps me wake up Leoni in the morning. She is always glad to see him.

She likes to give him hugs.

And more hugs, even when he isn't very keen on it.

He retaliates with hair pulling.

In the end, they are both happy.

Burke pleased that he knocked over the playmat.

Lately, Leoni has not wanted me to take her picture. I have to try to sneak in a snapshot here and there. Well, here I wasn't sneaky enough.

Leoni loves helping with the dishes. Hopefully, this will still be true in 10 years.
