We have had a busy, Halloween themed day!
This afternoon, I took the girls to a kids' Halloween concert put on by our local symphony. They do this every year and it is great fun! The entire orchestra dresses up in costume and the conductor stays in character the whole concert. This year he was Cookie Monster and kept hollering "Me want cookie!" and inserting the word "cookie" into as many topics as possible. The symphony plays short, fun pieces. This year, they included songs from Star Wars and Phantom of the Opera. In between pieces the local children's librarian talks about the music and reads silly Halloween themed books. Katherine loved it all and Rachel managed to pay attention at least part of the concert.
Afterward, we went to our church's Trunk or Treat party. We started this a couple of years ago and the girls LOVE it - much more fun than trick-or-treating! Granny had a penguin car.
