This and That

Well here we are in Idaho, where it's cold and dreary! We don't usually get snow so it's just cold and dead. But it sure makes it feel more like Christmas than back in AZ! I love scarves and sweaters so it's all good! Of course I want to buy every little winter accessory I see for my girls but I can't justify it since we will be back in AZ in a month.
Thanksgiving was awesome and I got to see old friends which was nice. The girls are getting way too spoiled of course and Lauren is developing the attitude to go along with it. I think I'm going to go crazy....maybe I'll just leave her here! We miss all of our friends in AZ. You guys need to blog more! Cory is back at school until he comes back Dec. 19th. We miss him a lot!

So now I'm going to rant about a little love of mine which may be really boring but I can't seem to load any of my pictures on this computer right now so this will be an impersonal post as far as pictures go!
I went to this awesome little boutique called Lilliput in Moscow, ID today. It is one of my favorite stops. I make a special 30 minute trip just to go there for cool baby things. I have a thing for boutiques even though I can hardly ever afford anything in them!

I have a bit of a shoe fetish. Not for my own feet though. (You try having size 11 feet and see the lack of cute shoes you find!) So therefore I have a kids shoe fetish!

My mom bought Lauren these cute little "see kai run" shoes. I LOVE this brand. Leather uppers with butter-soft flexible soles. I have purchased 3 pairs in this brand.

I also LOVE Robeez! I'm sure everyone has heard of these and if need to check them out. At first glance I thought "ugly". But then I bought some really cute green with pink flower ones for Lauren when she was a baby and have been in love since. She walked early and VERY balanced which I attributed to these shoes. They are the next best thing to bare feet. And Lauren wore one size for 6 months. They stretch to fit. Kristen already has 3 pair!
Plus, they are easy on/hard to get off. Do we see a trend here with brown/pink and polka dots?? LOVE THEM!
Okay, enough ranting and raving!

I didn't mean to give you such a hard time about not posting, but I'm glad you did.

How is it possible that I didn't know about this store when I lived up there? Perhaps I ignored it intentionally since I couldn't afford it. Hooray for grandmas and their money!!

Tell your parents hi for us and that we are definitely missing their Sunday afternoon meals. Oh, who am I kidding? We miss every meal we used to have at their house!

Sounds like you guys are having fun!! Definitely cute shoes, maybe one day I'll have the money...:) I like the cold and sweaters and all, but I am so glad it is only going to last 6 weeks! I miss warm AZ!!
