So the girls started asking in August what we were doing for Halloween .... Holidays have taken on new significance since moving to Singapore. The rhythm of our life has been extremely disrupted by the lack of weather markers or holidays. I assume that we will just have to create a different rhythm.
I half heartily told the them we could have a Halloween party... easy to say in August! Then when Oct. 1 rolled around they reminded me of my promise! I told them to make a guest list and I would do the rest.....
You would not believe HOW HARD it is to plan a party and find Halloween stuff in Singapore. Singapore does not celebrate Halloween, for the most part, except the really gory part.
Panicked, I placed a huge order to Oriental Trading Company (sucked up the shipping fees) and ordered helium... Problem solved!
We had a great time and were surrounded by our favorite people in Singapore. We have been blessed with a huge group of friends here!
|Our good friend Annie's sister has a really great food blog where I got this recipe. It was out of this world!|
Notice the really AWESOME silverware ;)
|Love this kid... He was a character out of Super Mario Brothers... don't ask me who! I stand in awe of mothers who come up with unique costumes for their kids.. Not my talent!|
|Another product of a mom who is amazing in the costume department!|
|And the grand finale... the pinata!!|
|G getting some of her anger out! She hit it harder than almost any other kid there.... hmmmmm.|
|We had such a wonderful time! Happy Halloween Friends... We wish you were here.|
