The world through pink colored lenses...or eyelids

Abby's new favorite color is PINK! She has started pointing the color out everywhere. Clothing, toys, food, lips, gums, toes...if its pink, she will notice. The other day we were driving home late in the afternoon and we were sitting at a stoplight. Abby started yelling "Mommy! Pink! Pink!" I turned around to see what she was pointing at but she had her eyes closed. I realized that the sun was shining in her face and when she closed her eyes she could see PINK!

We recently discovered that REI has free rock climbing on Saturdays. The first time we went, Marah made it to the top but Ethan did not. The second time both Marah and Ethan climbed to the top where they rang a little bell. Ethan was so proud of himself.

Abby didn't climb any rocks but if the prize is for "injury received while climbing" Abby won hands down. She was playing around in the van after church while everyone else was carrying in armloads of stuff. She was swinging between the two front seats, slipped and hit her eye on something hard. She has a raspberry colored looks like she is wearing funky eyeshadow.

Happy Halloween!

Here we have a black cat, a shadow ninja, and A-bee. Abby loved going trick-or-treating. Guess what she wanted for breakfast this morning...CANDY! Time to find a good hiding spot for that sugary loot!
