For anyone else that might happen to be in Perth-here's the facebook link to the event.

Weekend Fun

Willow finished her halloween skirt just in time for  our afternoon out to see WASO Perform music from Harry Potter.  The performance was wonderful and doubly fun, as it was our first formal concert to take Irving to.  He did very well during the concert.

We had a rather hectic Halloween weekend out and about at various events around the city.  Saturday we went to a live performance of the radio show of "War of the Worlds" as well as a brief stint of rockabilly dancing, followed up by  watching "The Goonies".  Sunday we headed to the Harry Potter concert, stopped for a drink at Hula Bula bar after and in the evening watched the 1958 version of "Journey to the Centre of the Earth" in the city.

Willow has been very busy participating in NaNoWriMo again this time.  Arden has been inspired by the idea of writing, and is now also carrying a notebook with him everywhere. 

Gabriel spent a lot of Saturday at Games Workshop; painting for their Halloween competition.  He was *very* excited when we met up later in the day as he came equal first in the competition!

Finally today we received our new washing machine.  We haven't had a front loader in years.  Our two smallest people have been fascinated.
