My Funny Girl

Image
She likes to tell knock knock jokes. She does not quite get them. She stops at "Orange who?" and starts laughing hysterically. Whenever she has a cup, she puts it up her face and talks in to it saying "Luke, I am your father". That one is all husband's doing.  She is currently obsessed with Winnie the Pooh and will come up to us and say "Hello Rabbit!". We respond by saying "Hello Pooh. How about lunch and help yourself". She then replies "thank you Rabbit". It's a lot of fun. As you can see in the photo she has a "carrot" nose we made out of play-doh. She was pretending to be Olaf from Frozen. I helped her put it on and we laughed cause she thought it was funny. I am really liking this age. She does have her moments but they are pretty fleeting. Two has been a terrific age!

Here is little video I captured of her one night singing a new song she learned at story time. Her little personality is shining in full force in this…

Sunday Afternoon in Toulouse

Image
We first visited St. Etienne Cathedral. This cathedral was one of the more beautiful cathedrals we have visited. Different parts of the cathedral were completed at different times. 


Toulouse is another Roman settlement and thus is a center of Romanesque art. One reason is that it is on the route to Santiago de Compostela (a route that many Christians in the middle ages took through France to get to Santiago de Compostela in Spain to visit the shrine of St. James). We visited the Musee des Augustins which because it was the first Sunday of the month was free (all museums in France are free on the first Sunday of the month). It has a 14th century cloisters which we enjoyed running around in. There was a flowering tree that was blooming. It made us all so happy to see the signs of spring. We are so sick of winter.
