Then we went to the Haunted Library! For this one night, the library had blacked out part of the main room and filled it with scary stuff. Plus free candy.
After we got back to our house, they tried to apply makeup for the first time. This was from the packet they had bought at Target. I hid my hilarity well.
Then we settled down for fall crafts.
And they wrote messages on a letter board.
By now it was almost 10:00 P.M. and they were tired. After a bit of roughhousing that ended up with Dara falling on my foot, it was time to take them home and call it a night. I slept most of the next day!!
