Halloween Party at City Park

Today after school we rushed over to City Park(the tall towers we see out our living room windows at the end of the base) for a spooky fun Halloween party. It was hosted by Charlotte's family. Charlotte is the little girl from Madi's class who walks with each day to the nurse's office for her blood sugar checks and insulin shots. I love Charlotte for being such a nice friend to Madi.
Now I really love Halloween but I think I have met my match...Charlotte's mother. She threw a great Halloween bash and their Korean apartment was all decked out. Would you look at this killer kitchen...everytime I go to another Korean home I am amazed at how beautiful they are. I must say I think the apartment Charlotte lives in is the most beautiful home I have ever been in...why would anyone want to live on base in Korea? I think Korea is the best kept secret the military has. You want to know the craziest thing. We only live 45 miles from North Korea....that is so strange to me how wonderful South Korea is but we are less than an hour from such a dreary place.

The kids had fun bobbing for apples.

The food was great. Nathalia is from France and she made the yummiest madelines (french cookies).

These girls were all giggles in the elevator. We headed downstairs to the parking garage for more fun.

A pinata! Look at Madi hit that ghost.

Ben went as himself. A Bulldog football player. As soon as the party was over we raced back on base for Ben's game...Friday night lights at Yongsan.

Happy Halloween!
