Happy Adoption Day (and Claire the stylist)



One year ago today (I think, but I am not big on celebrations) we adopted Benjamin. I attempted to take a Happy Adoption Day photo - but I could not get him away from his new Wii Lego Star Wars game - He still had time on his 45 minute daily allotment and could not be disturbed. He obviously looks like a typical American kid now - which is exactly what he is! Jessie and Claire went outside to cut some flowers this afternoon - unfortunately Claire thought she was supposed to cut her hair also - I thought that was her 3 year old phase - but apparently it continues for another year. I wouldn't care if she cut her own hair if she was actually good at it (everyone knows I like to save a buck when I can) but as you can see from the photo she better keep saving for college as I don't think she will pass beauty school. This is her most devastating hair cut as of date (I think it is hair cut number 3 or 4, but I am starting to lose count.). The house update as of now is - no we have not moved in - our very nice cabinet man is also very slow - I am sure that the cabinets will be awesome if they are ever finished. Today Claire and I mulched some of the fruit trees we have planted and after supper I am going to put some wildflower seed on the side of our driveway hill.

Another House Update






You know if my house was finished - I wouldn't have to give you house updates - I could give you landscaping updates - which is what really gets me excited. The house was supposed to be done on March first. As you can tell from the photos it is not. The good news is that someday the house will be done - I am just not sure when. The cabinet man was there yesterday and said that they had templated the kitchen counters. That is great - except that then he mentioned that it takes about 2 weeks to get the counters back. That is a long time - especially since gardening season is upon us - I am ready to get started with my yearly hole digging, vegetable planting and then killing ritual! Oh well!
