I'm typing this while eating some leftover Halloween chocolate. At least this year we had the good sense of buying mostly dark chocolate and no nonsense peanut butter stuff.
A short report of our Day of The Pumpkins:
Here are the two little ones ready to go out to the city Halloween event in the public square. The weather had been nice until the day before, but it was now freezing.
There were many activities for kids and Kalena chose to go for face painting first. Appu followed, of course. The face paint artist asked Appu what he wanted. He said he wanted red. As I was trying to negotiate something sensible out of it, the painter inexplicably suggested a spiderman makeup. Appu jumped on board and my protests were useless. However, he didn't enjoy the process quite as much as he thought he would and he decided to end it half way though, before the black webs could be drawn. Here is the result:
As soon as it was done Rajiv said: "I have to wash my face". Right.
After the face painting we had enough of the cold wind and we moved indoor to the nearby food store. A quick snack and then we are on the way home.
So our Halloween celebrations were not a great success, but aren't our little pumpkins adorable?
At home the boys took a bath and Rajiv washed his face. He was supposed to go trick or trick with his friends on our street, but he was happy to just wear his Spiderman pj's (it seemed appropriate) and wait for his friends in the warmth of his home. He was excited when they rang the bell, but he doesn't quite get the spirit of the thing and he was a little disappointed when day didn't come in to play and moved on to the next house instead.
Rajiv and Rohan decided to relax playing the piano for a little while and then they went to sleep. Read: they deafened their parents until we could no longer take it and had to drag them to their beds. But again, aren't they cute?
