After our week abroad we came back home to Geneva. Here are some pictures of Beth and Reece's cute apartment in the city. Bethy has done a wonderful job with the decorations, and making it feel like a nice place to call home. She made paper mache deer antlers and a faux chalkboard wall right next to the curtains that is just fabulous, she is a creative genius!
This is their cozy little kitchen. When you don't need it, it conveniently folds up to look like a wall of cabinets which you can see in the picture above. I thought that was pretty niffty!
The night we got back from Annecy, Zurich and Bern was the night of the biggest halloween party in all of Switerland. It's a pretty well known event and people from all over come to celebrate the holiday. Bethy and I had to get pretty creative with our costumes since we didn't have too much to work with, but in the end we looked pretty cool even if you couldn't really tell what we were. I wanted to be something the resembled a peacock in some way. So Bethy did my awesome make up in purple, blue and green, I wore a peacock green shirt and we tied green ribbons in my hair. Bethy wanted to be a butterfly so she did her make up in pretty pastel sherbet colors and we cut out paper butterflies, colored them in all different color combinations and she pinned them in her hair.
I have a very beautiful sister!
Bethy's butterflies glowed in the black lights, a very cool feature of her costume that we hadn't planned on!
Right when we got in they were having the costume contest. Each contestant had to dance for 30 seconds to show off their costume. In the end the third place winner was a girl who had an amazing Shiva costume, sponge bob square pants came in second and a group of crazy doctors took home the grand prize.
This is kinda of a bad picture but one of the contestants had a very good Edward Scisser hands costumes, I wanted him to be in the final three, he really looked exactly like him!
Blurry but fun! Probably the best halloween dance party I have ever been to
The next morning we slept in, big time! We were exhausted from all our travels as well as from dancing the night away. When we finally did wake up Bethy made us the most delicious monte cristo sandwhiches ever! She actually used freshly made french toast for the bread! I basically ate my entire sandwhich in two bites, it was that good! Such a great way to start the day.
After a relaxing morning and afternoon chilling at the apartment and taking our time to get ready, we packed a cute little pic nic and lots of swan food and headed down to the lake front of Lake Geneva to see the famous jet and to feed some ginormous swans. We went at such a beautiful time of day.
After our picnic we walked home to bundle up and watch a fun halloween movie! Leading up to halloween we watched Arsnic and Old Lace, The Corpse Bride, Young Frankenstein and Hocus Pocus to get into the Halloween spirit!
