Movie Night!  We saw "The Muppets".

Antz, our director, gave all the kids a one-of-a-kind tote bag

On our day off this week, we went to see the Muppet Movie.   It was really good and we all laughed a lot.  My favorite was the song "Am I a Man, or am I a Muppet".  If you haven't seen it yet, you should!  I love the Muppets and watching the movie really made me miss my dad because we always watch the Muppets together.  I will get to see him in just a few short weeks, I can't wait.
We were able to buy a small Christmas tree and some decorations for our apartment.  It looks very festive now.  We even got stockings to hang, but we don't have a chimney in our apartment, so we hung them on the wall.  Dakota and I also decorated our dressing room at the theatre.  We have a Christmas countdown line and everyday, we remove a ribbon. I also have an Advent calendar and everyday I get a piece of chocolate!
This week, we took a field trip to the Ontario Science Centre.  We explored an exhibit all about Leonardo DiVinci, did some hands on activities to learn about outer space, saw a show at the planetarium, explored a human body exhibit, and more.  Miss Kim bought us all catapult models that we later put together at the theatre.  I also bought some Lego figures from the gift shop.
On Sunday, during intermission, we celebrated Annie's birthday.  She had a giant mango cheesecake flavored cake. She got some awesome gifts and we all sang "Happy Birthday" to her. Annie also got some amazing news for her birthday.  In February, she will be joining the Broadway cast of Mary Poppins as Jane Banks.  She is very excited and we are all very happy for her!
Stay tuned for another blog post soon...
