Down Jacket

I’m so worried about Anna being cold when she gets to Vermont.  She’s from a very southern province in China, where it seems to only get down to the 50’s in the dead of winter.  Vermont will be a complete shock to her little system.  I’ve been shopping for warm clothes for her, and recently got this adorable little down parka for her from Land’s End.  And check out the little “Kitty” fleece cap on the right.  I can actually get it on my head (although I can’t connect the chin flaps), so if she doesn’t like it, I can always wear it!

Now, I have to go on a mission for snow pants.  I keep thinking of new things we’ll need to have, and if it’s the middle of winter when she comes home (as we’re hoping) we’ll have to have those things waiting in the car at the airport for the ride home!

    Once you know for sure when you’re going to travel to get Anna, I plan on making a run to the mall here in Minne-SNOW-ta to get her a boxful of warm and toasty fleecey items. They are in abundance here (as I’m sure they are in Vermont too), but there’s one thing I’ve learned in my 10 years here – you can never have too much fleece!

    Yes, we do wear lots of fleece here, too. I pretty much live in long-sleeved T-shirts and fleece in the winter. Wouldn’t want to spend the extra money to actually heat my house!
