This year for Halloween, and the first time for this holiday, I'll be working. We're doing a holiday party at the Embassy for the kids. There will be trick-or-treating from office to office, and then we'll finish up on the Consular Patio where the Marines will be grilling brats and serving pulled pork sandwiches. My supervisor will be out of town during that, so I'll be running the show.

It should be really easy since the parents will probably want to be there with the kids.

Malachi wants to be a ghost this year. I think we'll be doing the old fashioned kind of ghost - I'm sure it'll be awesome. I have no idea what we're going to do with Simon. It's going to have to be homemade because they don't celebrate Halloween in Costa Rica so they're not selling costumes. We're probably going to procrastinate until the last minute to plan it. Here's a gallery of the Halloween pictures that I could find. In 2007 he was a really cute cowboy.

What adorable costumes! Can't wait to see what you come up with this year, and hear how the Embassy event goes. I did it the easy way this year and shopped for one kid's costume, and lucked out with the other who wants to wear the same costume again! Thanks for the submission.

Your marines are doing brats??? Ours always do only burgers (not great ones...weird seasoning) and simple hot dogs...I wish they did brats!

You can probably still get halloween costumes if you order like tomorrow! Also, if you have an "american" grocery store...they might have costumes...ours does!
