Haha, I will master this computer yet. All I have to do is commit 2-3 hours per post. That is reasonable, right? (PS Yes, Jason I will be taking you up on your offer to fix this!)
Gavin had just had his hockey gear professionally cleaned. Sadly, Gavin has to hang up his hockey skates for the next while. His neurosurgeon says he will never be able to play again but I am hopeful that with time he will be able to play hockey safely. In the mean time, instead of leaving the gear stinking up the basement (which is what it has been doing since March 2012) Gavin had the gear professionally cleaned. I have never seen such shiny, new, good smelling gear in my life! Wow, that $80 was well worth it!
When Gavin brought his gear home the girls wanted to try it on. Zoe thought daddy's shoulder pads were hilarious. She was lying down on the floor and we tucked her head in and pretended she was a car driving around- and so the idea for the costume was born. Zoe loved the idea of wearing daddy's hockey gear and being able to bring her mustang walker to school. I don't think she really knows what Transformers are but she was excited.
Trying out the costume at home.
Zoe took being a transformer very seriously...
Ailsa carving her pumpkin with daddy. Ailsa helped Zoe pick out her gigantic pumpkin at the farm and then chose a small pumpkin for herself.
This is Zoe showing off her newest trick. She enjoys swiping her water cup off the table as she is walking around in her walker. She now has the coordination to grab it, drink from it and hold on to it. Pretty amazing!
