Z made a nest for Eden on the couch. I'm not sure she knew what to make of it, but it was a demonstration of brotherly love, especially evident since Z shared his stuffed animal Spot with her!

Sitting Up!

The Wisdom of Superman

I had the following conversations with Z today:

Z: Can I watch a superheroes movie on the computer?
Me: Yes, I think that would be ok.
Z: Ok, but just one episode.
Me (suprised): Really? Just one? Why?
Z: If I watch anymore it would ruin my appetite.

And later:

Z (looking at a picture): That man has brown skin.
Me: Yes, some people have brown skin and some have white skin and some have skin that's a color kind of in between.
Z: Yeah.
Me (this question may not have been well thought through): Which color skin do you like best?
Z: (no hesitation): Blue.

The Apple Orchard

A couple of weeks ago we went to the local apple orchard. It was a gorgeous day and everyone had a great time picking and eating the apples. After we got home we had so many apples I decided to cheat and use pre-made pie crust. It is the most wonderful thing in the grocery store! I can make a delicious apple pie in 15 minutes instead of 45, and the clean-up is half of what it is when I make my own crust.

Here are a few pictures of the day:
