We are lazy about Halloween. Or maybe just lucky. It's not a big deal here outside of International schools and certain neighborhoods full of expatriates. Our boys have no expectations of dressing up and (if like the past two years) we don't get around to finding a costume, it's not a big deal.
That does mean we miss out on the extreme cuteness of babies dressed as bears and the silliness of dressing up with our friends.
Here's our first family Halloween post (click here). We dressed up as an Indonesian nanny, an Indonesian driver and an Indonesian baby. Trust me, it was really funny and not nearly as offensive as it might seem.
The next year we did actually celebrate Halloween while in Vancouver (click here). Asher went as Asher Bear and to this day I don't think I have ever seen anything sweeter.
Sorry Baby Jack, the second baby living in Bangkok doesn't really get to be a bear.
As for this year, well, umm....Mimi got them some new pajamas and that's good enough for me.

We went out for a nice drive around the city (it is possible!) and then stopped by our favorite park to let the boys burn off some energy. Asher ran sprints for about 10 minutes before he ran out of steam.
After his bath Jack gets dried off and thrown into the big bed for some play time with Daddy. After Asher joins him he gets crazy hair and then likes to lay down on Mommy and cuddle.
It rained. It flooded. Only one of the eight outbound lanes were open during the afternoon rush hour(s). It took us a long time to get home.
Taking this one grocery shopping just got a lot more fun. It was just the two of us, so we snagged one of these little car shopping carts. It's the first time we've seen them around here. I'm thinking America has had them for awhile? Either way, absolutely genius, but rather hard to maneuver.
Happy Birthday Asher Boy! We took cupcakes to school to celebrate our biggest boy turning 4. I love getting to be in his classroom. Those kids crack me up. I asked his teacher to take a picture with him and all of his friends came running up to get in the picture, too.
Jack spends hours trying to play this little instrument and then, when he finally figures it out, he scares himself with the loud noise and starts crying. Amazing.
Mimi sent new Halloween pajamas and Asher wanted me to take a picture so she could see how much he likes them. We asked Jack to join in, but he declined and started crying at the mere suggestion that he would like to pose for a photo. Asher tried to hug him and tell him it would be okay and I managed to snap this picture at just the right time.
