Ellie came upstairs with two balls and Lucy took them. I could tell from the expression on her face that she was going to try once again so I grabbed the camera.
Watch this, Mom. I'm gonna do it this time!
Lucy gets one of the balls in her mouth without much difficulty.
OK I got one of them. Now for the other one.
This is the tricky one but I think I can do it.
Take the picture quickly, Mom. I'm already about to drop one of them! Hurry!
As soon as I took the photograph, Lucy dropped one of the balls. She held the two of them for no longer than 10 seconds. But by golly, she did indeed hold two at one time.
That wasn't too bad, Lucy. But you really need to work on your form. The balls should be held so that both of them are centered. Like this!
Here we are near the end of October. Sixty-four days remain in 2011 and then it will be gone. But there is a lot of fun to be had before then.
We love Halloween around our house and we have plenty of tacky decorations. One of my favorites is a fiber-optic scarecrow. We've had it for years and each October we wonder if the filaments will light up for another year. So far so good.
From ghoulies and ghosties and long leggety beasties and things that go bump in the night,
GOOD LORD DELIVER US!!!
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND, EVERYONE!!!
