My kids crack me up!!!

We got a dusting......


So now that I'm getting more mature (ha ha), I have taken a new-found interest in those adorable reading glasses you can find at those fun boutiques.

So I have a dumb question. If my contact prescription is 2.00 for both eyes, is that what I can get in those glasses? Is it really that easy?

It's Snowing!!
