It's The Demon Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!

We've made some new friends here in Fuengirola. Kathleen and Pedro moved here recently with their adorable son Luke. After telling Kathleen how much I, and especially San Geraldo, dislike the fact that Halloween (not a Spanish holiday) keeps growing more and more popular here, Kathleen admitted to me that she couldn't wait to get Luke his first Halloween costume — if only because he would look so adorable. (I did mention that he's adorable, didn't I? Really adorable.)

We got together Sunday evening and they brought along what they needed for a Halloween photo shoot. Kathleen also shared photos of the first two Jack-O-Lanterns Pedro had ever carved. It was Halloween of last year, while Kathleen was still pregnant with Luke. Pedro has a natural gift for pumpkin carving.

(Click the images to see how adorable they all are.)

      Oh, everyone was out on the streets in costume. I find it creepy when the adults are dressed up and walking the streets. And I can't stand all the zombie make-up. But people had a good time.

  7. I absolutely love Halloween, but the true meaning of it. I also love to crave pumpkins. Those are amazing. And the family is adorable, but for some reason, I can't take my eyes off Pedro. I must be under a,spell of some sort.

      And to make it even better, Pedro cooks (and cleans). He cooked us a meal to take home Sunday.
