For the first time ever we are going out on Halloween. Only because it’s a great arrangement at Lara’s school for all the kids in town.

Halloween is not an old holiday in Norway, and to me its only been a night where adults can go out partying in funny costumes :P But the last couple of years Lara has been invited to go out with friends in the neighborhood in Oslo to do trick and treat.

But here in our new town they have made a twist on the Halloween fun, they call it HalloFRIEND (friend in Norwegian is VENN) so it a fun wordplay!

And the rule is that no kids can have masks and there are plenty of fun activities and candy to everyone, and no scary stuff for the kids to get nightmares from…

Halloween Party

I decided to throw this fun pre-Halloween party for my kids (and adults), because for the first time ever my kids decided they wanted to go trick or treating with their friends instead of Mom and Dad.

I thought bringing the whole family together, along with some neighborhood friends would somehow change their minds. But, they still decided to ditch Mom and Dad for their own peer group. How did this happen so quickly? It was a tough realization that they are indeed growing up, and getting older.

A day before the party my daughter and I started planning. She came up with a clever idea, she wanted to make a Witches Potion for finding your youth.

We then spent an afternoon shopping for the ingredients, preparing the food/drinks, arranging the decorations, sifting through to find the right music, and laughing at our silly creations. I discovered something, my fountain…

Trick or Treat?!?

Our ‘Lil Pumpkin’ has enjoyed her first Halloween!Halloween-6

I love everything about fall and have many great memories of Halloween growing up. I hope that my daughter can also have the same great memories. Since it doesn’t really feel very fall like in Singapore, we’ve tried our best to create a festive atmosphere by buying pumpkins and baking fall treats.

Pumpkin Donuts
Halloween-2

We started our celebration on Monday at our first Halloween party. Addy and I attend a party hosted by a group from the American Women’s Association here in Singapore. We made some delicious pumpkin pie rice krispy treats(here’s the recipe) to take and joined other mothers and babies born in 2014. It was great to get out and about and talk to other moms!

Heading to our PartyHalloween-1

We purchased pumpkins. Check out this price I paid for this pumpkin! Yes, I’m crazy, but…

DSCN3044I ♥ this day!  Can you believe it’s on a Friday this year! Eek, I can hardly contain myself.

One of my favorite childhood memories was being in our local Halloween parade every year.  I remember donning the plastic suit and masks that used to be our Halloween costumes growing up in the 80’s!  My have costumes come a long way!  I have a Maleficent, a pirate and a Darth Vader in my house this year.  Here is a sneak peek of my youngest.  He already had the fun of trick or treating at my husbands office!

When asked what his favorite super hero was, he responded with “All the bad guys!” He went all the way this year and is very excited about his “bad guy” costume.

We are hosting a Trick or Treat gathering tonight at our home, so I am planning on spending my…

Halloween

Originally posted on A Trivial Mind At Work:

I remember the Halloweens of my childhood as a time of pillaging the neighborhood and bringing home a grocery bag full of the spoils. Growing up in a large and fairly new neighborhood in the west side of Indianapolis offered a plethora of opportunity every year for the diligent trick-or-treater. Likewise, my kids have grown up in a fairly new neighborhood that attracts many Halloween celebrants. Once they bring their candy home, we (the parents and guardians of what is best for our kids) carefully inspect the candy and then take what we like! Our kids no longer go out on Halloween; they say they are too old for that kid stuff. I think they were just tired of me taking all the Peanut Butter Cups and Dark Chocolate bars.
