Halloween in Abu Dhabi was actually pretty fun.  We had our Fall Fest event at the school earlier in the week and then the day of Halloween we went to a party at the Embassy (I don’t have pictures from it, because you can’t take photos there) but they had a Haunted House, bouncy house, craft, food and trick or treating throughout the building.  The kids had a good time.  I made some cute “candy corn” rice krispie treats that I saw on that looked cute and tasted good even if the picture didn’t come out all that great.


They were perfect for my adorable “Candy Corn Witch” to carry!

Cameron also got to wear his costume to preschool that day so he was pretty excited.  After 6 hours of preschool and a Halloween Party he was exhausted and fell asleep at 6:30 on the way home.  Bella went home with a friend to trick-or-treat in our compound and I took Alexander up to a friend’s apartment building to trick or treat with him.  He had a blast running around the building with his buddy while I visited with my friends.  When it was all said and done we took a taxi back home (my first taxi ride here and I didn’t have a panic attack or anything!).  I was surprised how “normal” halloween was for us.  Granted we didn’t carve pumpkins since they cost about $40 a piece!!!!  Also – you can notice Bella in a short-sleeved costume and if it wasn’t so short she could’ve gone without the leggings too!  Hope everyone else had a safe and happy Halloween!!
