The holidays are over. Gosh darn it, we had fun. A post later. Maybe. But in the meantime, some photos of the Halloween festivities. For the first time we celebrated Halloween properly this year at a fête organised by the local school in my belle-soeur Steph's village. To me, it felt slightly weird trick or treating in broad, 25° daylight, but sweets are sweets and the kids had a whale of a time.
So did we! I am meant to be Sally from The Nightmare before Christmas, and I'll have you know I sewed that dress myself. It took me hours... days!! At last, a sewing project perfect for my unique lack of skills. To the left, our friends Bernard and Olivia, to the right, my belle-maman, who I thought was rather brilliantly disguised as Cruella de Vil.
And this is Pascal in his amazing home-made mask. His was the most chic Halloween costume I have ever seen.
Not so practical when it came to supping the much-appreciated beer at the end of the afternoon though...
In the evening we ate tartiflette and danced under a giant orange tent. Not entirely complimentary activities but a great time was had by all :)
p.s. I should mention, Owen was not simply a red-nosed ghost, he is Zero, Jack's ghost dog, also from The Nightmare before Christmas. He really got into his role, and eventually we had to calmly but firmly ask him to cease his overenthusiastic yipping.
