As you can tell, my family is incredibly photogenic. :)
As for the wonderful tradition of dressing up, I decided to be an Arab! (said A-Rab, like in 'Huck Finn') :) After the most amazing trip to Egypt and Israel this summer, I had to show off a few of my purchases! I got the headress for "one dallah" at the pyramids of Giza and the sequined yellow shirt from the Suez Canal and I had on my Jerusalem Cruiser sandals. I've worn the yellow shirt a couple times and gotten everything from 'that's awesome' to 'that's retarded'. (I regret to say that I haven't worn the headress in public much...) :) And, of course, I went trick-or-treating. (You're only young once, but you can be immature forever!) I had five houses on my list and made it to four and had some great chats with some neighborhood friends. Then I waited in my sincere pumpkin patch for the Great Pumpkin to show up. :) "Three things you don't bring up in polite conversations: religion, politics, and the Great Pumpkin."
