Park Fun

Weekly Happenings: The weather this past week was rather mild, so we took full advantage. On Tuesday, I didn’t have piano students, so after school I took the kids to the park. We were there for almost two hours and the kids had a blast. Then, on Thursday morning, I took Abigail back for a scheduled play date with some friends. The funny thing about Thursday was that it had been misty all morning, so a big puddle had gathered at the base of the slide. I didn’t realize it was there until Abigail went down and got her bum soaked. Luckily, her diaper seemed to keep her from being uncomfortable at all and we stayed for two hours to play. It’s getting a smidge easier to handle Abigail at the park because she’s steadier on her feet and she’s beginning to show some restraint and caution (she still has moments where she completely throws caution to the wind, but we’re making progress).

The Weekly Weather: It’s been really nice. It’s been cold in the mornings and then nice and mild in the afternoons (low 70s range).

What Paul’s Been Up To: Aside from work and his calling at church keeping him busy, he helped out with Joseph’s Cub Scout group this week (he taught them how to tie a square knot and then he had them do a Christmas craft which had them using their new skill). Today he’s working on signs to put in yards for the winners of the neighborhood holiday decorating contest.

What Sarah’s Been Up To: I had a relatively fun week because I got to go to a Christmas party for Relief Society and I also got to go hang out with friends last night.

What Joseph’s Been Up To: It’s been a bit rough on him getting up for school after having a full week off last week, but he soldiered on. 😉 He enjoyed being back and getting to go to GT and see his school friends again.

What Abigail’s Been Up To: She’s found great entertainment in taking ornaments off the Christmas tree and putting them places I’d least expect to find them. She’s also picked up a new phrase. If she comes up and shows me something she has, I’ll say, “Oh! You have a (fill in the blank)!” Then she’ll say, “I sure do!!” It’s pretty cute.

This Week in Pictures:

She loves this snowman. If you press his hand, he skates along and sings “Let it Snow”.
She decided she needed the Christmas mat from the kitchen in order to get comfy on the floor…I’m not quite sure why she chose the floor over the couches, but to each their own, I suppose.
It’s unanimous: this is the best slide at the park.
The swings are pretty awesome, too, though. The look of pure joy on Abigail’s face makes my heart all mushy.
Just relaxing on a bench. I love our park.
Showing me his climbing skills.
Abigail’s Christmas dress came in the mail. 😀
Chef Abigail is ready to take your order!
Foggy cold mornings mean hats for everyone!
I decided to put new nail strips on…sparkly blue!
I love how they match my fun top.

Bonus Video: Abigail loves to sing along to the song “Baby Shark”. There are a ton of different versions. The version that’s playing here is the Halloween version.
