I haven't really done this before, but I remembered to pull out my camera a few times this week, so I thought I'd do a little week in review post.  

Monday we took a walk with our new stroller.  This is a gift from many of the women at church.   I'm very excited about it.  I haven't really experimented with some of the different things it does, but it was certainly nice for our walk.  And bonus, it was pretty easy to put together.  It even matches our infant seat. 

Once in a while, I'll put down a vinyl tablecloth and we'll have a picnic lunch or snack in the living room.  This obviously isn't with the tablecloth; it is just a banana snack (they all gobble bananas up!), but here are three blond-haired, blue eyed cuties.  

Wednesday and Thursday I subbed up at a couple of the schools.  We didn't have all morning to spend getting the right shot, but I thought Abe looked like such a little ball star with his hoops outfit, bball bag and after the pic he was carrying around his bball too.

And during a shopping trip to Goodwill earlier this week Abe got a new (to him) basketball and an I Spy book.  We've been having fun sitting down looking at the pictures picking out different things he knows.  Today, after looking at the book we made our own little "I Spy" type activity.  Zach and Charlie used to have these cool search and find shaker things, so we attempted to make our own.  I searched the house for small little things last night and we also made a trip to the Dollar Tree this morning.  Once we had all the items assembled, I laid them out on the sheet and took the picture of all the items to find.  We made four that are basically the same, so that Abe and his friends can look and play against each other even.  (I am hoping they will last for years to come, too).  I also plan to do a little checklist on the back side and then laminate them and tie them on with a ribbon, but since we've got  quite a while before they are readers, that got bumped down on my priority list.  After we had it recorded what was going to go in each bottle Abe had a fun time dropping the toys in and then filling them with rice.  As you can tell, my pan underneath didn't quite fulfill its whole purpose of collecting the spilled rice, but luckily it was pretty easy to clean up.  Also, after we switched to the little shovel rather than my stainless steel measuring spoon, Abe had more control over where the rice went.  Now, we'll hot glue them and then put some tape around the outside and hopefully beat boredom with these fun little search bottles.
