Snow and shopping

Right now I should be writing about what a great weekend we had in Tulsa at our annual Guatemala weekend hosted by my adoption agency. The car was packed and we were ready to hit the road, but with the snow getting closer and closer I decided not to risk it. Although we ended up only getting about an inch here, they got 7 inches in Tulsa. We had fun just hanging out at home, but Kristen insisted on going out and playing in the snow. She didn't last long...the wind was blowing and she said it was like a blizzard. It was completely crazy to have snow at the end of March.


Today was more like it...in the 70's. I think I even heard a lawnmower going at a neighbor's house. We hit the mall for a little while and actually had a little success. We found an Easter dress for Kristen that we both like. Shoes are pretty difficult, because she really wants higher heels than I'm going to let her wear. We finally agreed on a pair, but they didn't have them in her size. So more shoe shopping to come in the next couple of weeks.

Yesterday afternoon I caught Kristen in the bathroom doing this....


She is like me in so many ways, yet so different in so many others. She takes ballet and loves makeup...by the time I was in Kindergarten I had already wrecked a car and jumped off a house...but not in the same day :)

I thought you were a little crazy when you first canceled your trip. Hah! What did I know. It was crazy. Oh well. There's always next time.
