Halloween and Stake Conference

It's been a fun weekend!  Friday was Halloween.  We were invited to an amazing party in a nearby ward.  The kids had a ball getting dressed up, of course.  Kayanna was Rarity (from My Little Pony), Molly was a bat, Sarah was a clown, and the boys were both knights.  We were in a hurry to leave, so we forgot to get pictures of everyone before the party.  Molly did the face paint, of course, even on herself.  Kayanna had amazing purple hair extensions and cutie marks painted on her cheek.  She wore my high-heeled boots all evening.

This morning we piled into the car at 8:30 am to go to the 10 am session of stake conference in Brussels.  The kids were thrilled to learn that there would be headphones with an English translation.  The conference was wonderful, of course.  After the meeting, we had a great time connecting with other English-speaking expat families.  Last night at the adult meeting, a family that lives in Brussels invited us to lunch today.

They have 5 kids, too.  We all had a lovely afternoon talking in English and playing games.  Kayanna found that the older daughters love to read, and they lent her 4 books.  I'm sure she'll have them read by Super Saturday next week.  She's planning to return them and bring some of hers to lend.
