I’ve never been a real fan of Halloween and was hoping that living in Tanzania would mean I could just ignore it altogether. But I had vowed to be better about getting out more as a family so the Halloween party hosted by a nearby restaurant seemed like a good opportunity to do that.
I waited until the very last minute put together costumers for Max and Elly and, in hindsight, I’m kicking myself for going with such gender stereotypical choices: Max as a basketball player and Elly as a ballerina. (Note to self for next year: start earlier.)
Elly was a little unsure of what was going on when they herded all the kids together for a costume parade. She and Max were the youngest there so they got to be first in line.
Neither of them was very cooperative in letting me get a good picture of them in their costumes.Despite not liking Halloween myself, I will say Max and Elly make it much more fun. So now the goal is to plan well ahead for costumes next year.
