Getting What You Ask For

Megan has been desperate to lose a tooth for months, since her two best friends in Singapore, Faith and Abby, have been losing them. She doesn't care that they are older - she just wants to lose one. Well, yesterday she got a loose tooth and she is NOT happy about it. It hurts. She wants it out NOW.

The kids have also been desperate for snow. They couldn't get it into their minds that we were not returning to the U.S. during winter (although my grandma said once it snowed in Minnesota on Memorial Day so I guess it's possible). When they found out we could drive up to snow in Colorado they though their prayers had been answered! As you can see, they had a great time sledding down the hill on our makeshift sleds, but they both complained excessively about the cold. I don't know what they were expecting - warm snow? They're learning the hard way these days that sometimes what you think you want isn't all it's cracked up to be.

Erik may not look like it, but he is in complete control as he slides down the hill. All those years of being on the National Ski Patrol come back to him at places like this. I think it's sexy. I can say that because he's mine. :)

We went to Colorado two summer ago in hopes of finding snow. We finally did make it up Independence pass to the snow, but not much. When we did get in the snow, my kids also complained of it being cold. Haha...they got what they asked for!!
