This morning I took Clara to get her photo taken for her passport application. In most of the pictures she was scrunching up her eyes and making a cheesy smile so we went with the more serious approach instead since I think it serves better for identification purposes. I also measured her this morning and found that she is 33" tall.
To satisfy my wanderlust, I made crepes the other day and dreamed of wandering around Paris.
The weather has been lovely (in the 70's this week even) and so the other weekend we picnicked in the backyard while Paul was home to join us. You can see the empty planter boxes Paul made for me for Christmas. Aren't they lovely? We still have to get the dirt for them and get our garden planted.
Paul also spent a couple of days installing crown molding through the main living areas of our home. He did a great job and it looks beautiful, although, like our baseboards and trim, it still needs to be sanded and painted to be finished. Clara is really into "helping" these days. Whatever we are doing, she comes and holds on (to the broom, to the molding, to the quilt I am sewing, to the spoon I am stirring with, etc.) and chirps "helping!" in a bright little voice. I tell you, sometimes I just die she is so cute.
