Halloween 2018


Redo för Bus eller Godis!!

Ready for Trick or Treat!!



Här gick det undan :) Oliver som Dash i Incredibles och Eddie-Bo som Henry i Henry Danger.

Speedy :) Oliver as Dash from Incredibles and Eddie-Bo as Henry Danger





Dessa två sa imorse att Halloween är ännu bättre än jul. Jag ba -What??!!!

These two said in the morning that Halloween is even better than Christmas. I was like -What??!!


Vi har firat precis hela dagen. Det var Halloween party i både Eddie-Bos och Olivers klass, och på kvällen var vi bjudna till Helms där vi gick Bus eller Godis. Jo, vi hann också med en timme med skridskor. Eddie-Bo slutade tidigt idag så vi hyrde is. Det gjorde denna dag ännu mer speciell!

We have literally been celebrating ALL day. Halloween parties at both Eddie-Bo and Oliver’s classes, plus party at The Helm’s including Trick or Treat. Oh in between all celebration we skated for an hour. Eddie-Bo had half day in school so we rented ice, that made our day even extra special!

Halloween coming up


Färska bilder från vårat Amerikanska ‘spooky’ vardagsrum! Barnen har nu nedräkning till Halloween, som alltid firas 31 oktober i Usa. Dom började dekorera redan när jag var i Sverige gullisarna. Inne har jag flyttat runt liiite på grejorna, men ute har jag inte ändrat nåt iaf ;)

Fresh pictures from our American ‘spooky’ living room! The countdown for Halloween has begin for sure. The boys started to decorate when I was in Sweden, too cute. I’ve just moved around some things inside, but I’ve not touched any of the outdoor decoration ;)



När man ser magasinen på denna bild, kan man ju tro att vi bygger Willa Nordic (fick dessa kataloger av uncle Mats i somras som jobbar där. Så himla fina hus!!) Men så är inte fallet, vi bygger Lågenergihus!

By the look of the magazines you would think we build a Willa Nordic house in sweden (i got those magazines from uncle Mats, that works for that company. Amazing houses!) But we are building a ‘Lågenergihus’ – means ‘Low energy house’ 





Har ni dekorerat nåt än, eller hoppar ni över denna dag? Det är hög tid att skaffa Halloween kostymer! Eddie-Bo vill va clown i år och Oliver vill va precis allt. Han har ca tjugo olika karaktärer han velar mellan!

Hörrni, trevlig helg på er!

Did you decorate already? It’s also about time to get Halloween costumes. Eddie-Bo wants to be a clown and Oliver wants to be everything. I think he has about twenty options in his head!

I wish you a great weekend!! 

Halloween 2017

Pictures from our Halloween 2017! We’ve been having a really fun day, with Halloween party at both Eddie-Bo’s and Oliver’s school, followed by party at our house that ended with Trick or Treat, of course! My neighbor Julie’s house on the picture above is a favorite, and the boys call it the Halloween house all year round, because they think it’s so cool!

Time to Zzz after a busy day!


Countdown to Halloween


A big scary spider, lots of spiderweb and some skeletons in our ceiling light! Guess who thinks that is super cool?! Two more days until Halloween and Trick or Treating, that is always on October 31st. Everyone I’ve talked to in Sweden wonder what the ‘real’ day is. Now you know!

We’ve been having a cozy day, we all slept in till 9am (!), perfect for a momma that went out last night :) Then we’ve been playing boardgames, playing basketball in the basement, puzzle and right now the boys are watching a movie. For lunch I made a potatoes/leek soup, nom! And I think that will be my dinner too :)

A lovely family day with my boys ♥

The porch is decorated






The porch – decorated by me and the boys. Ok, mostly by me… but they are into this!! And today they got to pick out their costumes. Halloween, it’s lots of fun, especially when you have kids.

About Halloween

Last night’s party was a blast!!  I’ve been laughing so much today thinking back of all funny, great costumes! If I went for a sexy outfit? Of course.

So we are Mark and Dave, they are Redwings private parking guys.
They have been wearing these ugly suits for way too many winters and we are always making fun of them :) They are the best guys, always make me laugh! Plus they fuel up my car when needed, love it!!
So we went early to the team party and we stayed outside and welcomed everybody and showed them were to park. I think everybody at first really thought it was real Mark and Dave working. And yes, we won The Best Couple!!

Real Dave! I wish I had one picture of Mark,  he and Johan has the same colored beard, he really looked like him!


And today we’ve been Trick or Treating with the kids!





Me, today as a hungover cat :) Meow, or in Swedish, Mjau!

The boys are now sleeping in these ghost pjs (from Hanna Andersson). They were exhausted and fell asleep so fast after todays all fun!

Finally bedtime for me too, good night!!






Halloween coming up! I haven’t decorated so much in the house, but I thought it was fun to hang some skeletons and a cool card the boys got in the ceiling light! And the boys think the skull paper plates are super cool!
We have a Halloween party on Sunday night and we need to come up with costume ideas, like now! Please hit me with ideas. I mean it’s for me and hubby. The kids are doing Trick or Treat on Monday night, which is the real Halloween!

I’m so tired today. It’s been a busy schedule lately, plus I’ve been sleeping terrible… that new mattress, can’t stand it!! I’m looking forward to crash in the sofa soon and then I’ll check into the guest room I think :) Zzz…

Halloween fun has started


Halloween decoration, check! A light version compared to some other houses in the neighborhood. Love when people go all in!!

The owl Ovelette (not omelette that autocorrection suggested :) ) and the gekko Greg from the kids show Pj Masks. We had fun in the Halloween store picking out costumes and also got scared from all creepy stuff in there. For real, I’m so easy to scare. Check out my instagram @cissifranzen.

Group photo at Detroit Zoo Boo, not the easiest :) Eddie-Bo and Oliver’s best friends Lucas and Beau, are the catboy Connor from the same show. Great minds think alike! And Eddie-Bo, tight European style it is, haha.

Oliver ♥ Elle

This was our first Halloween celebration of the year. More to come, Halloween Birthday party, in school, Halloween team party for us and of course Trick or Treat on the real Halloween October 31st!
