Kids! You never know when they are going to outgrow something. Recently Amara’s Mommy mentioned that Amara was starting to outgrow her American Girl Dolls. Although she did dress them in costumes for Halloween, she plays with them less and less. She surprised us all when she brought Lilly to spend the night 2 weekends ago. She hasn’t done that in a long time and granted she didn’t play with her she simply tucked her into bed in her room. Still she brought her.
That same weekend I told Amara that her friend Fred and his parents were coming to visit the Sunday after Christmas. We were discussing what to have for dinner when I casually mentioned that I hadn’t ordered any instant snow this year. You should have seen her face drop and her bottom lip start to quiver as she explained that she was really looking forward to it. “But Grandma, I saw a video on YouTube. They added food color to the snow and I really wanted to try it.” Is there anything she doesn’t want to add food color to? We immediately went to the office and found it on Amazon. An easy Christmas wish to grant. Fred’s parents said he was really looking forward to the snow, too.
It was a chilly Sunday afternoon – only 62 degrees but they didn’t even notice. They had so much fun chasing one another and dumping snow on one another’s head. The pictures really say it all!

P.S. According to Jenna and Justin Amara had a real challenge getting all of the snow out of her hair and off of her scalp! It just kept growing!
