Just a quick note to tell you about our Halloween. Halloween isn't traditionally celebrated here, even though some groups do like to have parties. We weren't participating in any of those, which are kind of "witchy", and thought about having an American style Halloween party here at our house. But predictions of really bad weather, nixed that idea. Thankfully, Sascha and Jennifer Terry, our teammates invited the kids to trick or treat at their house. Carys went as a vampire girl, Anderson as Batman, and Garrett as an injured soccer player. Here are our trick or treat shots:

Everybody in costume.....

Running in capes is fun!

Trick or Treat!

I know what you must be thinking. "Those poor Blume kids! They only got to trick or treat at one house!" Well, let me put your mind at ease. The most exciting thing we did was two days after Halloween. We traveled to a city two hours away to eat at a really cool Halloween-themed pizza restaurant. This place is Halloween on steroids and is like this year-round. The pizza is great and we had a blast. We love pizza in Brazil, especially the dessert pizzas. Two interesting ones that you will see in the photos are a green one called Shrek pizza (really lime), and a chocolate one with nuts and m&m's called......um, Viagra. Ansley ate that one, but we didn't notice any strange mood swings afterward. We all did get a little crazy, as you will see. I'm sure this will be a family Halloween tradition from now on. Have fun looking at our pictures!

Is this place in Gramado? How cool! I must say, the Shrek pizza looks absolutely disgusting.
