Halloween 2011

Well Halloween ended up being quite exciting this year. And I dont even have pictures of the best part. First me and the girls made pumpkin piñatas for a party with the Vaca family, and then we went "trick or treating" at a friends house. I was still a little bummed about the girls not getting to go "real" trick or treating. Well Halloween night I had totally forgotten about Halloween because we celebrated early. And we kept hearing some kids chanting something. For the longest time I couldn't figure out what it was. The finally I made it out they were saying "Quiermos Halloween" over and over. Then it dawned on me that they were prob trick or treating. I ran out of the house so fast it scared my girls and then I saw them....


I was at first excited then I realized they were a block past my house. I debated screaming, "Quiero Halloween" really loud and then I figured I would just prove everyone right that gringas are locas. So I went in and explained to my girls what happened. My 5 year old could tell I was really sad that we missed them and said, "Mom maybe they will come back, and if they do we can give them our candy from the party." So we put their candy on a plate and waited......

Then they came in at least three more groups. We gave out all our candy including what I had from before to give the girls as treats. But the girls loved it and were not even sad about giving away their candy. I told them that for sure next year we will be going through the neighborhood chanting right along with the other children. Im already so excited for next year I just cant even tell you. So here are some pics from the piñata and party.

Sorry I had to delete the pics off my blog, I have decided to keep my blog public no matter how many hateful comments I get. If I made my blog private it would defeat the purpose so instead I will just delete the pictures and refrain from using names in attempt to keep things safe for us. 


  1. Aww I want to make Pinatas. I love doing crafts. All the kids look like they had a blast at the party and love the first pix too cute.

  2. We got our first trick or treaters this year, too, and a lot of friends said the same thing. Trick or treating seems to have finally caught on in 2011!

  3. You have one beautiful family Mrs.Trick or treat in Mexico? I guess the whole world is a melting pot!

  4. Lisa they are so fun! The first pic is what the baby did while we made the piñatas. lol

    gringation-Im excited about it, I dont think we have to give up day of the dead or anything but why not have both.

    Anon-I came here from St.Louis which is considered the melting pot of the US, so I have a very open view to celebrating and learning all types of holidays and such. Not sure if your a new reader but if you keep reading you will see that when Christmas comes.;)Thanks for the comment about the fam. I think my girls are precious. lol
