|My gift to Ann today.|
It has made us wonder, though, about the logistics of just doing it while in mom or dad's arms. And now that colder weather is here, we have discovered that the little kids are all bundled up in very cute snow suits - with open bums flying in the breeze. They look cute and very chilly as they totter about outside. And of course, it begs the question if most people don't have clothes dryers, how do you deal with the accidents on both parents and kids.
We would love to post a picture, but we have never seen an opportune minute - and may not. So it came to me in a flash. Yesterday as we were riding on the bus, we observed the normal flow of women dressed more stylishly than you see walking around in Minnesota. Many in the style that I have labeled "Chinese Fou-Fou Flare." Just the shoes we see everywhere are so much fun. I would love to take some pictures to post and let you see what I mean. No drab Mao jackets like you might imagine. Just very high style Fou-Fou Flare.
So my great idea is for Ann to find a lapel camera with a hand clicker for me for Christmas. It would be so much fun! And for sure they would enliven these posts and give you an even better feel for China today. Lets see Santa.......
Do you like the flowers. Jumped on the bus this morning. Rode a couple of miles. Bargained hard and bought them, including the basket, for $11. Ann likes this as much as the purple of the Bachmans' truck. For me, two 18 cent bus trips were well worth it.
