* Fitbit challenges and averaging over 20,000 steps a day

* "Grandma, can you please entertain us?" - T
* "P and F are still not letting me play with them. They're only letting me be god and there's no god in their game." - T
* "Mom, we are a happy family, we're just not a happy family all the time. But we love each other, even when we fight." - P

P - gymnastics, my friends, my awesome secret handshake with P, school, my family

T - my family, a nice house to live in and food to eat, that we're safe and sound, Natalia, that it's almost Thanksgiving, my new iphone [my super old iphone, which he's already lost].
