I figured it was time to upload some pictures - I've been such a slacker about that lately. We've been busy around here, just doing stuff, nothing terribly important. Yesterday we cleaned house for awhile, then packed up and went to the dinosaur museum for a couple of hours. Chloe loves it there so much. :o) She got this egg thing from the gift shop, it's made of plaster and inside it is a toy dinosaur. You have to use a little wooden chisel and brush that come with it to chip away at the plaster to get the dino out. It entertained her for a long time yesterday, and then she brought it with us when we went to visit the in-laws and had one of her aunts help her. There's still plenty of plaster left. Cute project though.

There's a video of her here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kohFI516wcY

The other night, we were talking about what she wants to be when she grows up. She'd like to be a zoo-keeper, paleontologist, ballerina, cheerleader, surfer, and a teacher. Ambitious little thing, isn't she? :o)

Today we just have more cleaning to do (I'm sort of in spring cleaning mode) and I'd like to go buy some plants at the store, but that may not happen til tomorrow. We'll see. When Andrew gets home from turkey hunting we're going to go find the geocache we started to find the other day but never did. We're very close to finding it, I'm excited.


Cora playing with the cat's toy. (I'm working on uploading a video of this too.)

I can't convince my computer to turn these few images. I'm irritated with it, so you'll just have to deal with it. :-) This is the apron top I knitted the other week.

Our tie dye hanging out to dry.

Another un-turned pic - my bulbs. Aren't they pretty? :o)

The dino egg

Planting peas. :o) She's quite a helper!

Her favorite display at the museum. Ew!

Happy baby in the bath

This is what we do nearly every evening now. It's wonderful.

thanks for the link, Apryl! This spring we did our worm thing, I was thinking the butterflies might happen next spring. I can only handle so many bugs in a given period of time. :-P hehe

Nice to hear from you!
