To combat my sad helpless feelings, I'll post a few pictures from recent days. I know it won't help my little family in the middle of the desert, but maybe it will help me. Here are some randoms I took at a clothing store while my teenager niece, Megan, tried on skinny Hudson jeans. Not to be outdone, Sophie and cousin Allie played dress up in their own dressing room, including handbags.
Last Saturday, we had NUTHIN to do (how often does that happen?). So we made a day of it, taking Grandpa Zede to breakfast, followed by a trip to the Natural History Museum. Sophie loved the dinosaurs (she's into them lately) and sang like Pocahontas in the Native American Replica Hut. In the evening, still antsy for activity, we made Mommy/Daughter chocolate cupcakes with sprinkles (and ate too many of them).
