Since Halloween isn't celebrated in France a few American families got together and had a party for the kids. It worked out well, because not only did the kids have a great time, but seeing as it was a four day weekend we all had the day off!
My mom had sent Nathan a Mickey Mouse costume last year, but he never got to wear it. Since the pants still fit, we decided to give it a go, rather than try to hunt down a costume in France. He had just woken up from nap time so it took him a while to get going. After the party got going though he was in heaven - the games, the kids, the candy! He loved bobbing for apples and looking for eyeballs inside the brain!
It was truly magical to see Nathan celebrate his first Halloween with some old friends and new friends even if we are in France! The joy in his face and his laughter was wonderful to be a part of!! I can't thank our friend Kris enough for hosting the party and putting so much work into making it special for all the kids!
But of course, it isn't a party without food! Check out my graveyard pudding...
I got the idea from my T.G.I Friday waitressing days when the kids would get a "cup o' dirt" which was essentially chocolate pudding covered with crushed oreos and some gummy worms. We went without the gummy worms and added skeletons instead - voila perfect Halloween dessert!
Check out some of the other yummy food...Witch fingers, mummy hotdogs, vampire apples, sugar cookies, etc! A pregnant woman's dream!
