Houston....we have a problem!
Ok, not really. There is no problem, but we are here....in Houston. And because I have been unpacking boxes for the last 4 days (and lets be honest, there are still boxes and piles strewn about) I couldn't think of any other way to begin! I like Houston. Though, it still feels very dream like. (Am I really doing this...is this really my "home" now?) The only problem I am currently facing is a clothing issue with my kids. It is regularly 80 degrees here. People are swimming. People are tanning. People are wearing shorts and t-shirts. But the only thing in my children's drawers are sweaters with snowflakes, and cable-knit tights. I guess that is what happens when you move to a new climate. I think we sort of missed out on "spring" this year. So I just hope the neighbors haven't noticed that my son has worn the same pair of basketball shorts for the last few days, and my daughter is dressed in only a onesie. I'll get to the store eventually! And finally, the pictures. Before we left KC, my sister in law Tiffany asked me to take some pregnancy pictures. I'll admit that "super intimidated and nervous" doesn't adequately describe how I felt to say "sure". But honestly, it was SO much fun to hang out for an afternoon with her! And seriously, (much to my relief) can a picture of a cute pregnant gal EVER be bad?
