Clara Turns Three

Clara was so excited for her birthday!

We went to church in the morning, and then we drove out of town for Scott's Grandmother's visitation and funeral.

We did get to enjoy some cupcakes in Nursery and again in the van later that night.

Scott decided to bring home an ice cream cake a few days later so that she could blow out her magic wand princess candles and open her cards and gifts.

Clara is such a joy to have in our family.

She loves to play dress up and play princesses.  She loves to sing and dance.  She loves to paint, colour, draw, and make crafts.

She adores her big sister Samantha.  One day during the first week of school, she saw Samantha come home after school.  She ran over to her and said, "Samantha!  You came back!  I'm so proud of you!".

She loves going to Nursery.

She loves her family, siblings, grandparents, uncles, aunts, and cousins.

She loves her special purple blanket.  She loves sucking her two fingers and snuggling her blanket at bedtime.

She likes to pretend to be a puppy, and will crawl around the house barking.  We try to avoid picking her up, as that will likely result in a slobbery "puppy kiss" on the cheek.

Clara will make friends with anyone who gives her attention, which is pretty much everyone she meets.

We love Clara so much and can't imagine life without her.
