The boys' school gets all dressed up for a Halloween Fun Fair. I helped for a few hours after school on Friday setting up the haunted house, and I made this Jack O' Lantern cake for them to use as well. I like feeling apart of the community and helping out when I can.
We also went to our Church's "Hallogiving" party. It was the Australian's way of combining two American holidays in one: Halloween and Thanksgiving. It was great! We had a great, big Turkey dinner, rolls, salad, mashed potatoes and gravy, green peas and so forth and even they had the traditional pumpkin pie and apple pies. I was so proud of their due diligence! In addition everyone was or at least the children were all dressed up and we had a DJ and a trunk or treat going on out back for the kids to get their plastic pumpkins full of candy, baked goods, and Halloween toys like pretend spiders and worms. It was a great night, and we all had a good time! We even squeezed in a beach trip Saturday morning to early afternoon. It was one of the best Halloween weekends I've ever had!
