halloween

Growing up in Jamaica - we didn't have Halloween and even when we moved to The States my mom said I couldn't because it was "the devils day", lol. In high school I convinced her to let me do something with my friends one year and as an adult I've gotten dressed up and gone out my cousins maybe twice. I don't have many Halloween memories, lol. Oddly enough, in attempt to become a little more Americanized or for party promoters to make even more money - there are quiet a few Halloween parties in Jamaica now - costumes and all. It's definitely more for the adults than the kids though, lol
 
Thanks to assimilation, Lil Sis gets to dress up thanks to the function that they usually have at her school. Although she had already attended 2 Halloween parties (at her dance class and at school), we figured she would still want to trick or treat. Instead of going around the neighborhood, I came up with the idea of going to a local promenade so that she could trick or treat and we could grab dinner afterwards - win/win for everybody. There were tons of kids there all dressed up - some parents were dressed up as well. The cutest thing was a little Asian baby girl with one tooth who was dressed as a pumpkin - we couldn't get enough of her.
I had the Herb Chicken - so yummy!
Finally! I will be moving back to New York next week, celebrating my 1 year
anniversary and seeing my husband for the first time in 6 weeks.
I can't put into words how much I've missed him and I'm so excited that this time apart is finally coming to an end. I couldn't even bring myself to go to the airport when he was leaving and the first couple of days alone, I thought my world was going to fall apart - it was so dramatic - you would have thought I was never going to see him again, lol. But what can I say? I love the guy!
How was your Halloween?
