Mobile Moments, 10/13-10/19

I've been slacking off this week, it's true. However, there have been a lot of things going on to occupy my time, and my mind. Family-visiting, party planning, Halloween preparing, and deck-building have all taken precedence for my attention over blogging, and I suppose that's the way that it should be.

Bonding with Papa.
Where's Abby?
Staring out through our hideous sliding door accessory for one of the very last mornings because...
... On Wednesday, deck construction finally began!
Thursday was rained out, but on Friday came the footings. On Monday: the joists.
Aunt Lisa makes word puzzles twice as fun.

Overheard this week:


In response to compliments Tom received on the leg of lamb that he roasted: "The lamb is so tender because we caught it and killed it and cooked it." (Cue some amusement mixed with slight guilt and horror on my part at the casualness with which she stated it.)

Between Tom and Abby

Shopping at Trader Joe's
A: "We could get some fruit."
T: "What should we get?"
A: "We should get some red grapes. And we can get some green grapes."
T: "Well, which one should we get?"
A: "We can get them both."


"All done."
"Take bath."
"Pull pants down."
"Not me!"
"See bad guys!" (While watching Mulan, to which Abby responds, "Yes, Michael. Those are the bad guys!")


"Green, pink, purple"
"Bless you."
"I sorry."
"Party time!"
