Halloween typically isn't celebrated here in Bolivia, but Elena & I decided we missed costumes and candy...so the older kids became our excuse to eat a lot of extra sugar this weekend! :)
We took our older bunch from House 1 over to play with House 2. First, we dressed everyone up in whatever costumes we could find around the house, which was pretty awesome. We couldn't exactly send the kids door-to-door trick-or-treating, considering that not a single one of our neighbors would have a clue how to react if a child dressed in a tye-dye cape showed up at the door asking for candy. So, this is where Halloween got interesting. We got a little creative combining Easter Egg Hunts and Trick-or-Treating, which lead to just a big ol candy hunt outside. Fun.
These two are quite the pair - both are just about the same age and live at the Baby Home. Both also had a hard time keeping their noses on.

...and they're off!
This 3-year-old princess was a little bit confused by the whole event. We were, too.
Apparently the Village People were here, too.
The bug finally wanted to play, too!!! Haaa - is he not precious?
"We have a pirate on the team??"
Finding the good spots
The best part of the day?
Maybe my favorite picture of all time?This is our little lazy-eye triplet...who gets to wear an eye patch...so obviously that called for a little fun to be had. Shout out to Page Otey for so generously donating her parrot beanie baby for our little matey. Great accent to her diaper-dorag.
But our Pirata isn't the only baby who wanted to participate in the costume contest...
With hair like this, an Elvis Presley costume was calling her name.
