Busy Bees

Written by Zoya

I have been so busy lately. Mostly just trying my parents' patience and seeing if I can get away with things I've known I'm not allowed to do for a long time now! Like I know I'm not allowed to throw toys at the dog, but I just wanted to check and see if it will still land me in time out. It sure did (all three times I tried)! Then I thought it'd be fun to see how many times I can take my headphones off during my therapeutic listening therapy. Now keep in mind, I've done therapeutic listening for over four months, two times a day for 30 minutes each. I was a good girl the whole time, up until now! I want to keep taking my headphones off and then act like I'm traumatized when mom puts me in time out. Oh and I can't forget, I know I'm not allowed to stand up in the bathtub while mom steps 2 feet away to get my toothbrush, but I've been doing it anyways and cracking up because it's sooooo funny to see that look on Mom's face when I'm naughty.  Needless to say, Mom and Dad are worn out.

Mom and Dad dressed me like a bumble bee, I'm really not sure why.

This is my baby friend Lola. She was dressed like a pumpkin. She was confused as to why we were dressed up too.

Mom and Dad took me to the zoo for a Halloween event. Here I am walking with my Daddy.

There was lots of music. Daddy and I danced and I loved it.

We got to walk up to little windows and trade a ticket for a treat! I loved my cheese puffs!!

Here I am walking up to one of the windows. I walked up to a couple all by myself and traded my ticket in for a treat!

I really surprised myself here. Back when I was just a little kid, I was so afraid of mascots, especially the big cow at Chic Fil A. Tonight though, I thought these guys were pretty cool. I tried to grab this bear's glasses but mom stopped me before I got them. She's no fun sometimes!

I also wanted to get my picture taken with this cute penguin. I really wish Mom would have let me grab his beak but she didn't let me get close enough! I was gonna be nice, I swear! Sheesh Mom, I was just curious!

More treats. I was getting a little tired at this point. There were lots and lots of people. I've never seen that many people before!

In most of my pictures, my expression looks like this. I couldn't believe the craziness I saw. People all dressed up and dancing around like crazy people. Big fuzzy animals walking all around, lights, ghosts, a scary troll on the bridge...I mean give me a break....I never saw anything like this in Ukraine! I had a great time though!
