Hallowe'en with the Ladybugs

This was my 7th year at Greenfield Village's Hallowe'en (Evie's 5th).  We had both planned on being Smurfette - I was going to be the evil Smurfette, and Evie was going to be the good Smurfette.  But at the last minute I decided to have a different costume.  I settled for the witch costume we got from our babysitter, Hannah. 

Here are some of Mommy's favorite pictures!

Adventures with Zoo Tots and Abraham Lincoln

Here are some recent pictures with Zoo Tots and my field trip to the Plymouth Historical Museum to see an Abraham Lincoln exhibit.

Evie's class has now taken trips to Antarctica and the Arctic Circle - opposite sides of the Earth!

My class had a wonderful time viewing all the Civil War relics, the Lincoln Exhibit and the Plymouth Timeline.  I was not ready for the class trip to be over!

I loved sticking my head through for this pic.

October has been BUSY!

This has been a busy month.  School is in full swing, and our after-school activities are keeping us super busy.  Evie is still enjoying her Karate classes on Monday and Wednesday evenings.  She also started a class at the Detroit Zoo - Zoo Tots - on Thursday mornings.  Mommy and her have been having a blast.  They have visited North America, Australia and Africa so far!

I am still in Ballet and loving it.  Mommy cannot believe I fit right in with the 7-10 year old class, but I am learning so much.  Soccer is coming to a close, and I don't think I will sign up in the spring.  Daddy wishes I was more interested in it, but I'd rather be reading or dancing.

Evie and I had Thursday and Friday off of school last week, because our teachers were at a convention.  So on Friday we met Aunt Kelly and Emma at the Henry Ford Museum (Uncle Joe came by to say goodbye too because he went to Germany), and enjoyed the Wizard of Oz exhibit!

Here are some of Mommy's favorite pictures from the month thus far:
