The Bunny Trail

This year, we celbrating the begining of Spring at the Capen Hill Nature Sactuary in Oxford, Ma. They put on a wonderful Easter Egg Hunt with well over 5,000 hidden eggs and prizes all planted by local Boy Scout Troops! I smell a new family tradition in the making...

Mystical Aquarium

Lauren's Scout troop spent an amazing night camping out (inside) the Mystic Aquarium!

The girls had lots of "hands on" time!

The aquarium does a great job making science fun for little kids. The girls especially loved going outside at night and watching the Beluga Whale chase the glow stick through the glass and even dissecting squid!

Winter Wonderland

See the pretty snowflakes, falling from the sky
On the wall and housetops, soft and thick they lie

Trimming the Tree

Stockings are Fun,

and piles of presents are great,

but my favorite Christmas gift are those we place on our tree.
Whether it is a gift card, tickets or cash, it's always something that is for the "future", thus extending the joy of the season beyond Dec. 25th.

A Self Proclaimed Princess Turns Four

Barbies, Princesses, Crowns, Tiaras, Tippy Tap Shoes, Rings and Treasure Boxes...
that is what makes our youngest's world go 'round.
So innocent and easy to please.
So cuddly and loveable it will melt your heart.

Pumpkins in the cornfields
Gold among the brown
Leaves of rust and scarlet
Trembling slowly down
Birds that travel southward
Lovely time to play
Nothing is as pleasant
As an autumn day!

Weekends with Grammy

I've often felt cheated by being an only child, sad to have never had a sibling to grow up with. Now, as a parent of 3, I have no idea what I was thinking I can see the wisdom in my mother's choices. LOL!

The biggest benefit of being an only child is having my mother be an everyday part of my girl's lives.
