Paige and Olivia

We had an all-too short visit with my friend Kim on our way home from Kansas, and it wasn't just our girls who got along like they lived next door and saw each other every day. But they were the ones always ready to pose for a photo.
Kim mentioned that Olivia reminded her a lot of Paige at that age, and that couldn't have pleased me more. John especially was very impressed with this lovely young girl, who carries herself with such mature poise and graciousness that belies her young age. Although he inexplicably thought she reminded him of Meg Ryan. Aside from her apparent love for and talent on stage, I can't say I really saw a direct resemblance...

We arrived home safely and just on time. We mostly kept ahead of some precipitation and spent New Year's Day home, comfy and dry, with more snow flurries coating the Fam Van that sat untouched in our driveway after accumulating almost 2000 miles in 10 days.
We are tired and cranky and most of us have colds. School starts tomorrow and John goes back to work ... and then has a sleep test to look forward to tomorrow night! But that'll have to save for another post. Needless to say, it's a long time coming. In the meantime, we'll get started on our New Year and those pesky Resolutions we always feel compelled to make, to include, in no particular order, painting several rooms in the house and potty training Sean-Peter (mine), getting in shape and tiling several rooms in the house (John's)...

Just kidding on the tiling of several rooms. I think. While we were in Kansas John helped my uncle do some tile work on a rental house that he's renovating -- to learn the trade, so to speak, and see if it's something he thought he could do in areas of our own house. He came back and confidently declared, "No problem". Of course, I'll keep you posted...

*Update: John just read this and said that it wasn't Paige's looks that reminded him of Meg Ryan, but rather her speech and mannerisms and "facial expressions and whatnot". I stand corrected. Who knows, maybe someday you all will say You Saw Her Here. (!)

Paige is a gorgeous girl. And it's so nice when their demeanor is also impressive. The girl on her back is pretty gorgeous too! Glad you had such a good time there. Glad you made it home safely.

What cute girls! I bet Olivia was relieved to finally see her own kind!
