Catching up with Adria

Life has been crazed! Between Thad's surgery, all of my stuff going on and of course Adria well, I really haven't had time to write. That is not to say I haven't been taking mental notes but you'll have to forgive me if this is a bit all over the place.  I guess I will start off with Girl Scouts. I love the Girl Scout organization and I love that she loves it too. We work really hard especially right now to sell cookies so the girls can go and do some really cool stuff. But I will say this...I HATE cookie time. Why? Because I'm the one that ends up doing all of the work. And mostly I don't mind. However this year I decided to volunteer to work the cookie booth at Boscov's in Camp Hill. We sat in the atrium with no heat and by the time I left, I could hardly move. I never did get warm that day. The positive side of this is, I got this picture...

This really made me giggle. The best part was that she and the other girl there were trading off on the costume. When the other little girl was wearing the costume, she would dance in it. So this is how it went.

The door opens and a potential customer comes in. Adria would say "Girl Scout Cookies! Only $3.50 per box." And Alanna would say "And the sa-MO-as dance!" (dancing ensued). Well after about 20 minutes of this and many, MANY strange looks from people, I had tears of laughter running down my face. They did an awesome job!!!

Next up....decade day! Adria's school had a decade themed day and she chose the 80s. Well, that's not entirely accurate. She chose the 70s and wanted to be a disco queen with "a HUGE black afro". This of course further helps my friend Jeremy's argument that I in fact have a black child. If you don't know what I'm talking about see Adria and Black history month. Anyway, since her basic wardrobe is already 80s...that's what we went with. And this was the result.

Now, the hair was a little tough. We did the side pony however I wanted to give her mall bangs. And I did. And she cried.

She started to cry and said that she looked weird and didn't want to go to school like this was the compromise. I wish I had a pic of the big bangs, but I don't. But it was pretty epic, if I do say say myself.

Now onto the vampire teeth. Whenever my dad takes us out to Jojo's for dinner, Adria insists on getting more crap from the the vending machines. There are little Winnie the Pooh dolls and a whole bunch of other crap. THIS time, she got fake vampire teeth. Not just ANY fake vampire teeth...but what I like to refer to as Vampire Fronts. Now, if you are not schooled in the way of the hood, fronts are defined by Urban Dictionary as

1. fronts: (noun):
removable gold or platinum teeth that go over top your real teeth
When I go out, I always rock my chain and fronts.
I can't even. These things are so beyond bizarre to me...even for Adria. Later when we were at home, she comes up to me and says "I made my new vampire teeth, well, more Adria"

I asked her what she meant and she showed me. She had added glitter to the teeth. So now we have glittery, vampire fronts that are more Adria.

What else can I say?
