Dress Up

The neighborhood Halloween Parade was Saturday morning.

Belle made an appearance.

As did the Sugar Plum Fairy.  It was really cold out, by the way.  The temps had gone from mid 80s a couple of days earlier to low 30s.  Hence the coats and gloves.

They helped wrangle other participants, including a tiger.

Saturday night and Sunday afternoon was a dance performance.  Annabeth was in the chorus of a presentation in the Book of Ruth in modern dance.  

Naomi, Orpah and Ruth expressed their sorrow at the deaths of their husbands by dancing with and into the silks dangling in the picture below, wrapping themselves in them and suspending themselves (too bad I didn't get a picture of that -- think "circus arts" and you'll have the idea).  It was very cool.  I love the choreography this dance teacher composes.

Thalia ran the light booth, and was appalled that I came up to take a picture. (They also helped build the sets, and Thalia sewed all the large, gauzy curtains.)

Sunday night was a Trunk-or-Treat.  They had planned to go as Disney Princesses to hand out candy, but were officially Wiped Out by all the running around all weekend, and skipped that Dress Up opportunity.  But that's okay -- tonight is another chance!
