Happy Halloween!

Posted by November 4, 2014

Happy Halloween ya’ll! From the Grim Reaper and Deadpool. We made ghosts and vampire fang treats and went to a school dance and trick-or-treated and had an ultimate battle between Death and Deadpool. We got full-size candy bars like last year. AND…one house in our neighborhood handed out $20 bills. For reals. Sadly not to us, but I can confirm that this, in fact, did…

Happy Halloween from the Creeper and the Easter Bunny! And that creepy Goblin guy next to them. Know that fabled neighborhood where they give out full-sized candy bars? That was our neighborhood tonight. Okay, so it was just one guy, but the full-sized candy bar is like the unicorn of trick-or-treatdom. Have you ever seen it before? Me neither. This was our first “real” Halloween…

Better late than never, right? (Because Halloween was like 2 weeks ago.) Halloween seems to be slowly catching on here in Germany. There was a slightly bigger (still tiny) Halloween section in Real (aka the German Wal-Mart) this year and, word is, more German trick-or-treaters.

The walk thru the park was just over a kilometer (tho we we walked considerably further to get there since we somehow took the wrong bus).

And flying Ryanair with their crazy carry-on only size/weight restrictions. So any costumes had to function as real clothes the other days of the week. (We did go to a…

Jacob finally settled on skeleton after weeks of wanting to be The Lorax. Thank goodness—how the heck would I have made a Lorax suit? Nicholas loves to yell “jumpin bean” and jump up and down. So a rabbit would be a great costume, right? Nope. He wouldn’t hop at all in the rabbit suit. They don’t really celebrate Halloween much in Germany. It’s catching on,…

Here are some pics taken at the Trunk or Treat thing on Schinnen and then some taken a couple days later in the backyard. At the Trunk or Treat, Jacob wore his dino head for about 10 minutes then wouldn’t put it back on. I think the whole thing, with all the people, was a little overwhelming for him.
