Spring has sprung in northern Illinois. The birds are singing and the flowers are starting to bloom. To celebrate, I have a new freebie to download! It’s called “Hello again, Spring” and features a lovely photo of a bouquet of tulips.Continue reading Hello again, Spring
Our Christmas this year was a bit hectic with multiple family gatherings to attend. Overall, it was very nice though. Good to see our family and visit with them. And it was great seeing the excitement on our boys’ faces as they opened their presents. 🙂
Up here in the northern states of the U.S., it is cold. And we’ve had snow already. Not surprising since winter officially started last Friday. For some this is a favorite time of year. If you’re one of these people, then I have a free download for you!
Here is the US, we’re celebrating Thanksgiving today. 🙂 A day off of work, and a reason to get to together with the extended family for good food and good conversation.
Here’ my second free printable! Just in time for Thanksgiving here in the USA. 🙂
A collection of words of things I’m (and hopefully you are too!) thankful for. I hope you like it! And I hope you and your family have a Happy Thanksgiving!
I decided a few weeks ago to do some seasonal prints — you know, Welcome Autumn, Hello Winter, etc. So, I put together the first one, showed it to Angie, and she tells me that the interwebs are just crawling with this type of thing…. for free no less! I was abashed.
Every year we grow some vegetables and herbs in a small garden out back. This year we had tomatoes and parsley. (I know, pretty pitiful for a garden, but we don’t have that much space!) A few weeks ago, Angie noticed some little itty bitty worms on the parsley. We thought these were just some pests that needed to be eradicated. After doing some Googling, she discovered we actually had baby swallowtail butterflies!
Yesterday Angie and I took the boys to Go Ape in Western Springs. We all had a blast! James complained a bit about having to go on the Junior course, but after we started on it, he stopped complaining. 🙂 Quinn seemed OK with going, even though in the past he has mentioned a fear of heights. Asher was very excited. He kept mentioning how he’s a big parkour fan, and this was perfect for him…
We went to the zoo yesterday. Brookfield Zoo just outside of Chicago to be exact. It’s almost an hours drive from our house, but it’s worth it. Brookfield has a huge variety of animals to look at. Unfortunately, no one wanted to look at any. :/
