Happy Halloween!

As I mentioned last year, Halloween is not a holiday here in Holland, but more people are starting to celebrate it. This year our neighborhood had a party and arranged trick-or-treating. They asked beforehand which people would have treats for the kids and then made a list of the house numbers so the kids knew where they could knock. There were 27 houses on the list...so the kids got plenty of candy!

Sybren helped Jimmy decorate his Halloween bag. When Jimmy found Sybren, he grabbed his hand and yelled to me, "Mom, look, I found my best friend!"

Both boys love Maurits.

The superheroes are ready to trick-or-treat!

And off they go...

The little pumpkin and I stayed home to pass out treats.

The boys returned and dumped out their treasures. I found it very interesting that some people gave out candy that was not wrapped. Jarom said one old man reached right in the bucket of gummies and pulled out a handful for each kid! Ha ha, people would be shocked if they saw someone do that in the states!

And we ended the fun day with a nice scrub in the tub!

We hope you all had a Wonderful Halloween!

and we leave you with 2 fun videos...
