Right about now...
If we were in the US, I'd probably be stressing out over Halloween costumes for the girls. Nadia would probably have wanted to be Dora the Explorer. Maya has already said that she wants to be Supergirl again. Nadia was a jailbird last year. They were both so adorable! Here are pictures of their outfits last year:

Maya - Halloween 2004 Nadia - Halloween 2004


There is a Halloween party here on Sunday thrown by the American Women's Club. But, the ticket prices are the equivalent of $40 a person (adults and kids). Ouch. Although, for that it is like a carnival and food is included in that price.

If I can get some costumes for the kids together, we might go...I really miss North Hollywood right now.

What I'm feeling: nostalgic nostalgic

Dude. I love Nadia's costume, that cracked me up.

If/when I have children, I'm going to dress them like that.

EVERY DAY.

Well, we lived in North Hollywood (near Oxnard and Laurel Canyon by the 170 freeway) since 1997. Before that, Chris and I lived over the hill near West Hollywood, around La Brea and Melrose, close to the big Farmer's Market. Chris and I went to college at USC (GO TROJANS!) and that's where we met. Funny thing is that the Valley was the only place in LA that we could afford a house at the time and we cringed at living in the Valley, but we've grown to love it there. And as Chris says, we're in the shallow end. LOL

I've been told that Maya has a total Valleygirl accent. Like totally. ;-)

I miss being there so much some days...

That jailbird outfit is so cute!

Halloween isn't such a big deal here in the UK - we're saving ourselves up for Nov.5th Bonfire Night...you'll no doubt hear more on that in my blog!

Thanks for inviting me here!

Can't wait to hear of Bonfire Night. I have never heard of it...

Glad you're around! :-)

A Halloween Tradition

We miss you, too!!!

If it makes you feel any better, I AM stressing (but, sshhh!, I'm not telling anyone!). Despite the fact that we have a committee for this, and I am the President -- and therfore, I am supposed to delegate -- I have somehow ended up in charge of the MOMS Club Halloween Party! Which is this Sunday!!! EEEEEEEKKK!!!!!!!

It will be lovely, I think. And, if not, it will be over by Sunday evening. Either way, I am looking forward to spending Sunday evening with a bottle (oh...um...excuse me! I mean, "glass") of wine. And maybe my husband. Hopefully, but he works all the freakin' time, so you never really know whether he'll be home or not.

I am going as...I don't know...a serving wench, I guess (think St. Pauli Girl). (Still laugh every time I remember Lauren showing up for the MOMS Club party dressed as Roller Girl! I'll never top that!)

Happy (almost) Halloween!

Sam.
