I think Allyson is pretty smart. For example a car commercial came on the other day with a unicorn, fairy, and minotaur in it. Allyson pointed and said "Minotaur." I told her that 1/2 of daddy's students didn't know that and she told Scott that he needed to tell his students about minotaurs.
Here are a few more Allysonisms:
Yesterday I came in the living room and Nola was crying. Allyson said, "Sorry, I ABSOLUTELY hit her in the head." I laughed
You "Take for a ride" in the car or on daddy's back
You have to be careful of the llamas (lava) when playing Zelda with daddy
Medicine, kisses and food "Feels me better"
Not to be outdone, Nola said "Pip, please." So I got out a chip. I asked her what it was called then I asked her her uncle's name. Her answers were "Pip" and "Pip" (Kip). I asked her what the difference was and she just stared at me, so I gave her the chip.

This is an old photo (from when we went to Pumpkinland). It's pretty full of Fall color, I think. I'm feeling pretty lazy so I decided to post an old photo, but since we have the rest of the week there's a chance I will become unlazy and take another picture for the theme. We'll see.

So Janae made a blanket for Nerin's baby-to-be and asked me to make a gift bag to put it in. Janae picked out the fabric (from my stash) and I made it today. I'm pretty proud of it since I didn't have a pattern. It actually has a lining and two pockets! She can use it as a bag for whatever after Janae gives it to her.

I made a dress today! I had this really ugly quilt top that I got from my aunt (stuff from her mother-in-law) and a pattern for a little girl dress that I bought on Etsy a while ago (from the 70s). I decided that the quilt was too ugly to be quilt, but cute enough to be a 70s-style dress for Allyson. So I made it today and aside from a few mistakes, I think I did an okay job. I have enough to make another one if anybody (Nola) wants one.

Well, I didn't go the typical route. Actually I took some pictures and then kinda forgot about it, but I figured I should get something in before the end of the week. So, I gave Allyson the freedom to get herself dressed. She chose one of our Cardinal's shirts and decided to wear it backwards. She had fun with it.
