Tag and Karen's Un-Spooky Halloween Show

Hubby and I put on a show at the library Thursday night for Halloween. I can't believe I actually did it! Hubby is the one who used to do library shows with his friend. I'm the one who is not used to performing in front of people.....especially in my own home town....AND on local television! Hubby had three original Halloween stories and four original Halloween songs. I performed three stories from my old preschool-teaching days. We had about a dozen kids...almost all boys! They were all responsive and fun. We kept the program moving pretty quickly and tried to keep the kids active and involved. We got thanks and praise from the parents when we left......so I guess we did okay! The local access TV station taped us, and the guy already gave us a copy of the DVD. We were kind of afraid to watch it last night. Who wants to see all their mistakes? But it wasn't bad! The few little mistakes we made weren't obvious to the audience, and our singing was actually pretty good. We had a good time, so did the kids and their parents, and the library lady already said we'd be welcomed back next year. Hurray!

Ooooooooh! I can now say "I knew her when..." A TV-Star! Does the paparazzi chase you now? Kidding aside, I think it's great. And I bet those kids really enjoyed themselves. Wish I'd been there!
