or Karneval! or Mardi Gras! or Fat Tuesday! or whatever you want to call it 🙂 Here in Germany, it’s a lot of fun for kids and adults and kind of rivals our Halloween except without the doom and gloom theme. This year, Olivia had a Fasching party in her school and Chris had one in his Kindergarten. Olivia wanted me to decorate the house so that Alex and I could have a party ourselves at home while they were at school, but I didn’t feel that to be really necessary. 😉 Thanks to Kristi and her “leftovers” from their move, we had about 7 cans of aerosal hair color at home which the kids had a lot of fun with. None of their costumes required colored hair, but they colored their hair anyway!
Here are some pics:
