Aby-a-Day – August 9: Silly facetime selfies (Selfie Sunday)

Because Björn is in Sweden, and I’m in the States, we spend a lot of time communicating online via FaceTime.

Sometimes, this can lead to some amusing photos. Now, these aren’t exactly “selfies,” I know, but…

…Abys + FaceTime can lead to some pretty hilarious photos!

Aby-a-Day – May 22: Jake’s Finnish crown (Fashion Friday)

Because “Jacoby with a Finnish cat toy on his head” didn’t have nearly the same ring…

jakeSeacoast2015C00427

Ha ha, get it? RING? Because it’s one of the crocheted rings that Sanna sent us…oh, all right.

jakeSeacoast2015C00423

I put it on Jake’s head because I could, and because it was made of metallic gold thread, it looks like a little crown. Sort of.

jakeSeacoast2015C00422

Heavy is the head that wears the gold crocheted cat ring toy?

angelmysticalC00688

You see that all the time: Cats are mystical, mysterious, magical.

angelmysticalC00687

Oh, yeah.

angelmysticalC00683

Yeah they are.

angelmysticalC00685

They totally are. They’re absolutely other-worldly.

Aby-a-Day – April 5: Here comes Jacoby Cottontail!

I was in our local grocery store the other day and I happened upon a Lindt Gold Bunny gift set.

Well, once I saw those ears, I knew I had to buy it.

jakeeasterearsC07200

And you know what I had in store for those ears, too.

jakeeasterearsC07205

Well, seriously. Brown bunny ears? I’m surprised more Aby people didn’t snap these up!

jakeeasterearsC07209

jakeeasterearsC07219

jakeeasterearsC07220

jakeeasterearsC07235

We had a little trouble getting the ears to stay on properly at first, being that they headband wasn’t sized for a cat’s head.

jakeeasterearsC07213

But Jacoby’s a pro at wearing things on his head, so eventually we got it to work.

jakeeasterearsC07232

Oh, yeah, Jake got the ears to work, all right.

jakeeasterearsC07234

Work it, Jake.

angeleasterearsC07157

My husband commented that he though the ears were more Angel’s colour than Jake’s.

angeleasterearsC07155

All right, let’s find out.

angeleasterearsC07151

So…who wore it better?
