Jack's sweet babysitter, Laura, made this autumn crown of leaves a few weeks ago and every once in a while he proudly wears it around the house. Last week he wanted to wear it with his cape...so he could "fly" throughout the house. He kept saying "Look mommy, I'm a prince!" I guess some princes fly:)
He even paused so tell Momo one last time that he loved her and that he was praying for her. I am so thankful the camera was within reach so I could capture this sweet, sweet memory. We miss you Momo, but we are thankful you are wearing your princess crown and flying around heaven!!!

Hahahah...meant to post this on the Livada blog, but I doubled up somehow...
so now you can read about it twice!
This year we had our annual Fall Party since folks don't celebrate Halloween in Romania. We played relay games outside, carved pumpkins, made caramel apples and watched a fun movie together.
Everyone had a great time!
Pumpkin Carving Competition:

Beautiful Transylvanian moutains!
We bribed him using a fruit snack to get this "cheese!"
Found these fun witches hats in one of the gift shops...Jeff and Jack were great sports about it.Happy Halloween from Transylvania!
Looking at the view...check out our pack mule Jeff...
poor guy, it was much warmer that we thought it would be!
Jack was walking on this bench and walked up to a lady whose was peacefully sitting there. He proceeded to sit down and tell her that he had cat poop on his shoes...lovely!
Too tired to walk down the hill. Playing with the rocks was much more fun!
This is until he discovered the leaves...that always gives you back some energy, especially when you can pour them on someone else's head!
Love the fall!
Only in Romania would you find this sign. Too bad I didn't see any of the Cullens:)
After our hike to see the Rasnov fortress, we drove to Brasov. I love this little town. They have a city square, a McDonald's and KFC (they had them here long before they had them in TM...it used to be such a treat!), a church called "Black Church" because the outside was blackened by fires, their "Hollywood" sign, street musicians, and a fun street market. Love Europe!
This made for a fun family day away from the normal everyday life.
Sweet little cafe
Happy Halloween from the McDonnells!
