Hello everybody and Hello November!
But before we can truly welcome November let us not first forget Halloween.
I must admit I wasn't prepared for this year's Halloween. As mentioned in my previous post, I had the week before with my hand's full on the DIY bedroom makeover. To make it even busier, I had to do the necessary catching up with my house chores and laundry (ironing as well) that piled up during the DIY days.
But of course, we just could not let Halloween go by just because of my DIY.
What Halloween wouldn't be complete without some pumpkins!
Carved the night before in a such a haste but was still a very surprising and pleasant turn out and made my Little Girl very happy and excited.
Which graced our front door along with my friend pretending to be the vampire!
Left with not much time to decorate but just to have a quick Halloween atmosphere in the house (apart from the front door decor) buntings helped achieved the easy trick.

Another thing about the Halloween excitement is the dressing up (which I just leave that part only to my little girl ). Every year I make it a point that she gets to dress in a new outfit different from the previous ones.
Here she is in her past Halloween outfits!

As my little girl is already old enough this year to understand Halloween I let her choose her outfit.
Her outfit choice didn't surprise me at all as she was into pirates lately.
Here is my very lovely, naughty pirate!

I mentioned in one of my recent posts about my plan of hosting an afternoon tea to my friends at my newly finished dining room before we do the trick or treating.
Here are a few pictures of our Halloween afternoon tea.

Small pumpkins and Halloween printed paper napkins as placemats set the tone for a Halloween table setting

Once full and ready to venture the cold outside we proceeded with the trick or treating part of the afternoon.
I'm glad we started it early and got back home just before the rain started pouring again and were able to marvel and enjoy the other trick or treaters who kept our door bell very busy that night.
My little trick or treater was more into the fun of going round different houses and knocking doors than the sweets she gets to have. Her friend was more than happy to take home her bucketful of Halloween treats.
Until next Halloween and a very good night everyone!
