I. Love. Snow.

However, I think I'd be pretty disenchanted with it had I been living back home in DC.  Then again, a week off with Sean & the kids...sounds pretty nice.  Unless you don't have electricity and suffer from cabin fever and Sean & the kids start driving you crazy.  Thank goodness we live down here.  ;o)

Just kidding.

We did get to experience the white stuff last weekend and our snow-loving pooch was in heaven.  The roads were still a mess but I'm sure waaaaaaaaaay better than a week prior.  Case in point, almost missing our hair appointment because streets of Bethesda were being plowed so entire streets were blocked off due to snow removal...because there is so much of the white stuff there is also nowhere to put it.  So, the whole weekend I saw dump trucks from WV & NC that apparently were contracted to haul the snow away.

While in Bethesda...Kaia accomplished her goal of this past year.  Donating her hair.  Donations required at least 10 inches of hair.  She donated 14 and wanted to go longer...but A-yi and I were a little concerned what if she freaked having such short hair.  Danggit...we actually could've gone shorter. Anyhoo...

Oh yeah...A-yi & I also jumped on the bandwagon...with 12 inches & 10 inches respectively (my stylist didn't want to go shorter):

Pardon the fact that I look a wee bit sleepy or boracha (en espanol...look it up).  I promise it's just a bad photo.

The Lee Ladies donated 36 inches of hair. 

Also...some snow fun:

This little cutie stayed inside and tried on her V-day gift from the kids (although a certain overprotective uncle REALLY did not least it was a one piece!!):

Aw! Kaia beautiful hair cut! You all look great with your new hair-do s!

Our son (who is almost 20yrs old) grew his hair out over 10 inches in high school to donate to Locks of Love! There was even a little mini school assembly where faculty, staff and classmates cut one of the bazillion rubberbanded sections of hair along with his soccer team's donation collection presentation for Children's Miracle Network. In 2007, he was GA's ambassador for CMN. He is a cancer survivor. We are so thankful & blessed that he is strong and healthy!

Love your snow pictures and what a "cutie-patootie" in her little one piece! :o)

Blessings & Aloha!
