We went to a Halloween fair - and of course it's not a real visit to a fair without

 getting your face painted


And of course Mom has to take a "few" pictures


Just a few pictures, mom

It's supposed to be Mom's hat, but it looks great on Anika too


Time to go trick or treating

Oma is here!

on one of her first days here, we get to visit Anika in her Kindergarten class and get to have lunch with the whole class. First, some instructions from Anika's teacher.

then, lunch time with the class

After lunch it's recess time. Jonas was with us and was a rather big attraction in the recess yard - everyone likes to chase him around, but judging by his smiles he didn't mind all that much.


Anika is quite protective of her little brother
