Last Friday, Mom had an Oktobefest at her school. I went in to "help," which really just meant I brought the coolers and some bags of ice, and then sat around, ate their food, and took various pictures. I think the kids had a good time.
Last night was Trick or Treating in Emmaus. I don't know why it's always on a Thursday, regardless of the actual date of Halloween; it's just the tradition around here. In any case, we took turns manning the door, and despite my secret fear of children younger than 14, there were some pretty cute kids, including the kid with the Darth Vader head gear that was bigger than the rest of him; the two year old with the pacifier in the Winnie the Pooh suit; and the preteen girl who told me proudly, after I admired her dress, that she was a butterfly princess.
