Halloween in Okinawa is pretty eventful... I think I mentioned last year (which is weird to say- I still can't believe we have been here a year!) that the locals are allowed on base and the Japanese kids love trick or treating. Troy and I always say we would rather save our candy for them because they are much more polite and appreciative than the American kids. Although, I will give many of the young parents props who made their children come back and tell us thank you if they forgot!
We saw tons of cute costumes, and an entire family of Angry Birds. The standout participant of the night, in my completely
unbiased opinion, was a cute little girl posing as SharkBait....
|Officially meet the newest Walton: Coral.|
|She is only a little spoiled....|
We found her laying in the middle of the road after a snorkeling adventure while Momma K was visiting. We took her in, patched her up, took her to the vet, and planned on adopting her out. After a few weeks, there was no way we were letting this little lady out of our sight.
|Does that "W" mean I'm a real Walton?|
She has really began to fit into our family, Murphy and she have become BFF's, often ganging up on Chesty- it is much deserved after his years of torturing Murphy. I know it might sound like we are the crazy dog people now... but it doesn't phase us a bit. Like I always say: Rescues make ordinary people into extraordinary people!
Enjoy some more pictures from Halloween:
|You know I love my window clings!|
|Sugar Coma or Awkward Camera Blink? You be the judge.|
|We are ready for some trick or treater's! Coral has my philosophy... "I better try one to make sure they aren't poisoned."|
|So tired from all the lovin'!|
Stay tuned, Marine Corps Birthday blog coming your way very soon!!
