Happy Halloween!

For Halloween Sophia went trick or treating as Catty Noir from Monster High.
 


She really got into her character (she's a singer in the 13 Wishes movie).





The cats were her audience.




Then it was off to trick or treat. Russell took her around the neighborhood while I stayed home to pass out candy.

Sophia was done with pictures!


Off they went! After that, they went to a trunk or treat at our school put on by a local church.



The next day, we finally got around to decorating our pumpkins. Better late than never.



At the trunk or treat, Sophia got this rock with googly eyes as a prize. She decided on Saturday that she wanted to make a condo for him. She named him Rocky. So here's Rocky's condo.
There's Rocky with his friends, Nail Polish 1 and Nail Polish 2.

The blanket below covers the condo. Cupcake enjoyed Rocky's condo too.

UNT Game

We had been wanting to go to a UNT game for a while and it just so happens that Uncle Brice (who got his masters there) and Aunt Cynthia wanted to go too!
So we got there early to go eat at The Abbey Inn.
 

We did a little shopping at Barefoot athletics to get some Mean Green Gear!

We walked around the downtown area for a bit.




 


Then we headed to the stadium!
 





I think Sophia was more impressed with the snack foods (popcorn and ice cream) than the game.



 
 Sophia was ready to leave before halftime, so at half time we headed home.
It was a fun time! But I think Sophia will pass on anymore football games.

The Amazing River Run

Sophia ran her first Fun Run on Oct 1oth at her school. It was a fundraiser the school does to help promote fitness and to raise money.
 


At first she didn't want me to run it with her. Not sure why, but I think it's because everyone always says "Hello Mrs. Kaminski" when they see me and I know she doesn't like being the center of attention. At least, that's what I'm choosing to believe. It couldn't possibly be because I embarrass her. :)

Boy was she glad I was with her when it started....we almost got trampled by the people behind us.


She alternated between running and walking (it was a one mile race). She was excited to get a medal for finishing.
 
Way to go Sophia!

Super Citizen

The end of the 1st 6 weeks brought a special honor to Sophia. She was chosen as Super Citizen for her class (a boy was also chosen).
 
And yes, she chose to style her hair this way once she got to school. I had fixed it to her liking when we left for school but once I got to the ceremony at 9:15....it looked like this. :)

Girl Scouts Field Trip: Euless Police Station

A couple of weeks ago, Sophia brought home a flier from school about girl scouts and said she wanted to join. So I called up my friend Joanne to see if they had any spaces (I worked with her at Wilshire and knew she was active in it with her girls). Sure enough, they had a spot! Daisies is the name of what the kinder and 1st graders do.
 
 
 
On Monday night, we went on our first girl scout field trip to the Euless Police Station.
 
Our tour guide, Officer Burnett I believe was very nice.




The girls had TONS of questions.



We got to tour the entire facility including the jail and 911 call center.


 

This is their kitchen. This is their deep freeze that contains all of the food for the inmates. It's essentially a holding facility. Their max stay might be 3 days...so they just feed them Banquet tv dinners.

Hopefully this will be Sophia's only introduction to a jail!
