DAR Open House

The DAR Open House is a real treat. It was a cold and rainy night, and traffic was pretty bad. We finally made it about an hour after we had planned. On the way, Rebekah had fallen asleep. Looked like she was doing some dance move...

Our first stop was to visit Santa. There was no line. The girls were a little hesitant, mainly because they had just woken up. Santa invited them over and started talking to them about what they had been up to this year. He was great! They also got a large gift bag with coloring books, candy, and a slinky.
They had many beautifully decorated Christmas Trees. Free hot chocolate, hot cider, and cookies for everyone! They also had door prizes. Rebekah and I both won! We both got a Wedgwood ornament and some fun DAR logo items. I won last year too.
Upstairs they have a cool hands-on area for the kids filled with colonial era toys and things.
It is such a cool building. The girls love to go and sit in these "opera seats" and watch the people milling about the library or listening to the singers. It was a great evening.
