There Be Dragons

This year was the first time we were able to create a little community Michaelmas festival for the kids. There are loads of blogs and web sites out there that can explain all about this festival of dragons (this one being one of my favorites and of course I stole lots of ideas from my pal Joy)... so I'll just let the photos do the talking. It was a beautiful evening of dragon slaying and strength and music and stories and food and fun.
