Trick or Treat

The past few years I have really enjoyed dressing up for Halloween, and this year was no different! :) Here is a little bit from my celebration(s)! Last weekend the teachers at school got together for a Halloween party and I went as a bag of jelly beans! I wanted a creative, fun costume that I could make from things available in Colombia, and this worked out great! I would definitely recommend it for people looking for a fun, simply costume. HOWEVER, I did not realize until I was in the costume that I would not be able to go to the bathroom...so be careful! :)
Jelly beans!
To help people understand my costume...although Jelly Beans does not really translate in Spanish.
Hana (grapes) & me
Kelsi (America (team in Cali) soccer player) & Steph (butterfly)
I am starting to really enjoy the rooftop party here in Colombia. :)

Then on Friday at school we celebrated Halloween at school with a costume context and assembly. All the 8th grade teachers dressed up as Snow White and the 7 dwarves (even though we really only had 6 dwarves!). I loved it and our students thought it was pretty funny too!

More!
I was Doc...thus the glasses.
Students on stage during assembly to vote for best costume.
Lots of costumes!

One of my students dressed as a "nerd".
7th grade math teacher Rob..actual nerd. :) Actually I loved this costume & was super jealous of his calculator costume making skills!

I hope your Halloween was filled with delicious treats, fun costumes and friends!

I was a bag of jelly beans for Halloween one year, too! I was pretty young and don't remember much of it, but I have never heard of anyone else doing it. So funny!!
