I went to the eye doctor today. 
Eyes look good and my astigmatism has gotten smaller. 
However, after my eye doctor asked me a bijillion questions of "does 1 or 2 look better?" "how about 3 or 4?" "does 5 look better or worse?" she states: 
"It seems that your eyes are working very hard when you are looking at things up close. I think a +1 would be helpful to you."
I am puzzled by this +1 thing and then I say "Is that like bifocals?" (in a disgusted voice)
Calmly, the doctor says "You could just pick up a pair of reading glasses and have them on hand when you are working on a computer for a long period of time or reading for a long period of time."
Great...I love getting older. 
I come home to tell my husband how my appointment went. I simply state that a pair of reading glasses would help my eyes from being so tired (I am trying to be positive). 
He laughs and says...so you need bifocals?
Thanks honey...

So I am going to embrace this and find a cute pair to carry around with me. I might even get a super cute, sassy case for them...heck I might even go with a chain! (Actually probably not a chain.)

Have a good night!

Princess Party

Each year Blue Springs puts on a Princess Party. The money goes to provide dental work for kids that don't have insurance. I had heard about the Princess Party but this year Sophia was old enough to go. I had no idea what this even was going to be like...and it was more than I could have ever imagined. It took up the most of the alternative high school building. They had a nail salon (it even smelled like it), cookie decorating, an Enchanted Mall, professional pictures, makeup, the tooth fairy, crafts, a Princess Concert, a Princess Dance Party and more. It was so much fun. What was even more fun was that Sophia dressed up like a princess. Take a look...

 Sophia was so excited for the Princess Party. She was dressed by 10:00 and the party didn't start until noon. 

There was a nail salon. This was our first stop and Sophia asked for white fingernail polish. She sat like a big girl and was so proud of herself. 

While decorating and eating her cookie, she kept looking at her fingernails. 

Asking Nana LeAnn if her face was clean. :) 

Looking in the mirror...

Getting makeup put on like a little lady

Here she is looking in the mirror checking out her makeup and sparkly hair. 

Dancing it up at the Princess Dance Party. She danced like no one was watching. 

The Bears Visit!

We have dear friends, the Beards and they came to visit it us! Our kiddos got to meet for the first time.  It was so sweet. 
Sarah and I are good friends from college. We married best friends, lived in the same town for a while, lived in the same house for a few months, then both lived in the KC area. Then the Lord took them somewhere else to serve and now we live about 8 hours apart. Sarah and Andrew are like family to us so for our kids to get to meet and play with each other was fantastic. 
Check out this little guy...LOVE his cheeks.
