First Snow








We got a lot of snow today ! The sky just opened up & within the hour that Vania & I were in Walmart grocery shopping about 2-3in. covered the ground. I could barely push the heavy cart through the snow covered parking lot. Vania thought the snow was funny at first, but was not fond of the cold wind taking her breathe away. Luckily Walmart had 3 pairs of boots left in her size. We picked the ones that actually had a price tag so we wouldn't get held up in the check out line. She wanted every pair of shoes we passed & every pretty dress she saw hanging :)It was fun grocery shopping with her. We passed the peanut butter section & I heard her squeal & point. She rode the rest of the time with a big jar of "mamba" on her lap.Every one seemed to be out stocking up due to the winter storm warning. Let me say that is a bonus having a cute little girl babbling in the cart when going to check out. A nice lady from the express check out came over to our line & asked if she could help us. Absolutely ! She must have known I was looking desperate after opening the bag of sweet hearts to try to keep Vania occupied in line.

After getting home from picking the kids up from school we put on the snow gear & headed outside. No one lasted too long. But we had some fun watching Vania experience the cold snow.She kept running back into the garage to keep the wind from blowing the cold snow in her face. Carson braved the cold & was able to make a quick snowman.

Team Hope has a blog page at www.hlahteamhope.blogspot.com . Check it out ! We were looking at it earlier today & Vania shouted out JEAN TONY as loud as she could. She loves seeing the pictures of her friends from the O. Last night she had all the baby dolls out naming them after all her friends. I think we have a Jessica, Abbie, Fabrice & Collin doll. It is very sweet. I know she misses them :)

OH MY WORD!! I love your daughter. How sweet is she??'

I love that she knows the kids and keeps her friends with her.

Little boys aren't that thoughtful, so no stories like that from Nathan. ;)

Poor Vania! The snow and wind probably makes her wonder"What are they doing to me?"Bambi-you are such a good Mommy! I'm looking forward to more Vania's big adventure stories.Of course Adam and the sibs are GREAT,too! I got such a tickle out of her naming her dolls after her friends! You know me and dolls! I have to name everything. And for those of you who haven't been to the Estep's house- there are translation books in practically every room !
