{Our Moment(s)}

Two sisters, two pictures…(usually) from two different countries (but not this time!). A Friday ritual. One photo each – no words – capturing a moment from the week. An image, a memory, a moment we want to pause, savor, remember and share. (Inspired by Amanda Soule)

I just sent Rapunzel and Pippi Longstocking off to school.  Last year (due to a specific teacher’s rule) it was not permitted to dress up for Halloween and they waited until Fastelavn, in February, to show off their costumes.  Things are different this year, as both schools have allowed costumes.  We are also attending a ghoulish Halloween party tonight and Brett and I will be in costume too!  We haven’t done that in years!  Oh, how I love Halloween!

Pippi’s hari was made by braiding her own hair, plus 3 pipe-cleaners and orange yarn into each braid. 

Rapunzel’s hair is an entire skein of yarn, wrapped multiple times around my cutting mat and cut to make one long strand (see below). Then braided, with small ribbon and flowers woven and sewn in and tied to her ponytail.

A surefire way to get plenty of Halloween in Copenhagen, is to visit Tivoli.  Closed for most of the winter, Tivoli opens for a couple of weeks around Halloween and Christmas.  We missed going at this time last year because we were in Spain

This year we went on a very mild, autumn day and although we only planned to go for a short visit, the festive atmosphere, warm cider and sweet treats drew us in and we spent most of the day there.  Here are some images. (Keep an eye out for the albino peacock!)
