Last Saturday, in the midst of our shopping trip, we discovered Spongebob Squarepants was visiting our local WalMart. Once upon a time YaYa was a big fan. She has since toned it down to 'casual fan', but Smiley has gladly taken up the baton. When the show comes on you can hear him trying to sing along to the theme song at the top of his voice, and for the longest time one of his only successful phrases was 'punge-ob', which even now he'll yell out with glee.
[note: wow. I guess, seeing the results above, that I'll now email my pics directly to Photobucket from my phone. They turn out much better.]

That day was also the end of the summer-like conditions that had lingered into November. The Lump is notorious for hating any and all hats/hoods/hair doodads/etc, and so we had to splurge and get a Lump-proof hat to keep her warm.
By the end of the day she'd discovered a way to pull it off. Serves us right for thinking we could outsmart a baby.
