It's that time of year again!

Time for Halloween! This year we had two Halloween parties, one in the early afternoon for the kids, and one in the evening for the adults. The attendance at the kids party was great! We had about 15 kids come, along with 3 or 4 parents. And here they are:

Unfortunately many of my adult students were busy, so the turn out was a little low, but we still had a great time. We did bobbing for apples at both parties and it was a huge success! Everyone really got into the spirit and was cheering each other on. Here's my student Masako's daughter Airi with her hard-won prize:

We also did face-painting with the kids and the adults. I was surprised how many of the adults were willing to get their faces painted, but almost everyone was a good sport and joined in the fun. I think my best effort was Chihiro the bunny, her teeth really came out well:

As for our costumes, we were a bit late of the gate on planning this year and ended up going with the old stand-bys: witch and pirate. I think Sho-chan looks awfully cute as a pirate though, don't you agree?
