This was a special Halloween for us....Sam's first and our first in Bolivia. We had a Halloween packed with events. Friday was the Book Character Parade at Luka's School. His class dressed up as the the Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed. Luka was jumping and dancing as they called his class for the parade.
Then Friday afternoon his classmate Simon invited him to his first Halloween Party. Luka was Captain Hook and the rest of the family were his crew of pirates. Evelin (nanny) and her little brother joined us in the costume theme. Then after Simon's party we were off to the "scary" celebration at school. It was a little late for little ones, but Evelin's little brother had a blast!
Saturday we rested and on Halloween (Sunday) we dressed up again and went to an awesome Halloween party two blocks from our house. The party started at one house then we went all around the neighborhood in a group of about 40 people Trick or Treating from house to house. Luka would say, "Trick or Treat Candy Please." I have never seen him so excited about candy. He really got into the spirit of the holiday.
As you can see he was Peter Pan, but he was supposed to join Sam and I with our Superhero theme (I had a "Robin" outfit for him), but he really wanted to be Peter Pan...so Peter Pan he was. He is really into Peter Pan (book & movie) these days so he was really happy he could dress up as the two main characters for this Halloween. As for me I was being nostalgic and tried to recreate my all time FAVORITE halloween costume from kindergarten or 1st grade - my mom made me the best Wonder Woman costume EVER! I need to find that photo and post it...
