Easter Fun! And My Birthday!

 Cora got me some lenses for my Lensbaby!!  Chloe let me take a few practice shots with one of the new lenses.  A little photoshop and viola!  Cora got me a studio background and lighting!!  More pictures will follow!

 Chloe and her cousin had lots of fun at the Easter Egg hunt!

 Below are the results of the Easter Egg hunt at her Daycare!  What a blast!!

Strange Spring

It has been an odd spring this year.  Snow all over the place when we should be seeing flowers.  Fortunately, we haven't gotten any snow here, just the Midwest, the west side of Washington State, the Eastern know.  The temperature last night dipped down to 21!  It was up nearly seventy the other day...if the climate isn't changing just a smidge, then I am a Galapagos Turtle!

We've been remodeling our master's turning into a longer project than initially expected.

Today I should have the last remnant of the shower cleared out and we'll be able to sheetrock and paint.

Spring break is coming.  I imagine I will be busy keeping Chloe entertained AND working in the bathroom.  Should be fun, though.  I might even find some time to get some more photographs of that most adorable of girls.  Unfortunately, Cora will not be able to take any time off, since her work seems set on keeping her hopping!

I look forward to returning from spring break to a long term position teaching music at a local (and my favorite) elementary!  I should be there for a month.

Chloe continues to amuse and amaze.  She is terrifically smart and communicative.  So communicative that there are times when we wonder if she will ever be quiet!

Last Week Or So

 You can always tell Spring is here when you see the Daffodils coming up.  That may be why they are amongst my favorite flowers.  Last week we went out and took some pictures of Chloe.  A few turned out well.
 I cannot believe how much this beautiful little girl has grown up before our eyes.  She has so much life.  I love her for it.

 I often have my camera with me, because you never know when you're going to see something worthy of a picture.  Sometimes you have to get out of the truck to find it, though.  I've been busy working and yesterday we began a new project.  remodeling our master bathroom.  It keeps expanding in scope, though.  I think it will be good when we are done, though.

This last picture was taken just off the freeway.  I can't wait until all the plants come back from their winter rest, it will be beautiful!
