My daughter Abi organized a birthday party for grandson Dani and his cousin Valeria for Halloween. The decorations were great and it was also a fancy dress party. Dani went for Harry Potter, while Valeria dressed up as Hermione (she really has the hair for it!).

Not to be outdone, my other grandson, Max, dressed up as Voldemort.

Left to right: Daughter Beth dressed up as Madonna/Cindy Lauper. I had just arrived back from a week-long trip and had no time to prepare for the party.  Charlotte wore Marilyn Monroe’s famous white dress, while Abi dressed up as a superannuated hippie. Hmmmm… I wonder if she had anyone in particular in mind.
