Carnival Party

Saturday night we celebrated Carnival with a party for fun-loving children and crazy adults!

Here we have a boy-girl, a Russian soldier, a rapper and a very elegant pirate, accompanied by an Australian cowboy.

A gentleman and his lovely lady!


Three...three..your guess is as good as mine!???

My costume is a little bit more complicated to explain because it involves a play on words in Italian, but let me try.... The obvious bit is that I'm a pregnant nun. You've heard of the Sisters of the Immaculate Conception? Well, in Italian "immaculate" is "immacoloto" which sounds like "maculato" which means "spotted" and is used to describe animal print fabrics. So, I am a "suora della maculata concezione" or "sister of the animal print conception"...get it?

East meets West!

An Australian cowboy and his turtle woman.

Live music!

The belle of the ball!
