Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween folks :)

How did you celebrate? Did you dress up and go trick-or-treating? Did you carve a pumpkin? Or did you cook something related to Halloween? 


In the past, it was common for children to dress up as something "scary" (think:witch, monsters, skeletons) but nowadays anything goes as long as it's different from one's self. In the spirit of Halloween, Baby C dressed up in her pretty ladybug dress AND pulled off some "scary faces". We certainly had fun making fun faces in the afternoon. 

Am I scary???? Rawr!!

I'm coming to get youuuuuuu!

In the evening, we partook in a popular game called apple bobbing or dooking for apples. Hubby used to play this game as a child during Halloween and thought it would be fun for us to try it too. And what fun it was! We giggled, we laughed at each other... apple bobbing is a game whereby you fill a bucket full of water, place apples in the bucket and then try to remove the floating apples using only your mouth/teeth. No hands allowed. It's not that easy -- noone managed to get any apples out except for Hubby. Well done ;)


Dooking (or ducking) for apples

Hubby getting ready for the challenge!

Success!


Mummy, apples are for eating, not for playing.. 

 Yum! When I grow up, I wanna play dooking for apples too. 

I didn't manage to make any Halloween food this year, but if you're interested, check out the recipe for homemade pumpkin and sweetcorn soup I made last year.

  1. gosh, i didn't do anything for halloween this year, even though various restaurants had promotional menus with pumpkins & stuff like that. anyways, i guess maybe in about 4-5 years, both your kids could go out trick-or-treating together :D
