Thanksgiving Songs

At Costas' school the kids sang some Thanksgiving songs. Here is video of one song.

Metropolitan Museum


We went to the re-opening of The Metropolitan Museum of Art. There were some nice exhibits, but it was a little small to me. I snagged a picture of Costas in front of this cool feathered dinosaur before being told that there were no pictures allowed in the museum. I can take pictures at the Louvre, but not at our local art museum. Umm, OK.

Trick or Treat



We had a great time trick-or-treating. Costas was a king, and then he changed his mind and became a knight (the costume was reversible). He did a good job saying "trick-or-treat" and "thank you," although one time he said, "I don't like this candy" to the people who gave it to him. We quickly had a lesson in saying thank you even if you don't like what was given to you. After that, he did fine. Actaeos enjoyed looking at the decorations and later fell asleep in his stroller.

New Background

I was so tired of the purple background but I didn't want to change it because it is a hassle to save all the settings. I found this the website The Cutest Blog On The Block and it was so easy to change the layout. Now I change it for holidays too!
