“It’s Spring time” they said but this week it snowed…again! Hopefully it won’t be around for long cause’ Summer and I have plans to hit the park a little more often… :)

Getting snowed in on Monday did however give me the chance to upload some pics of this past weekend with the parents! It was super lovely to have them here for a few days, Summer got plenty of Nana and Papa cuddles and we must have walked Michigan Avenue at least once a day, right Mum!? We even checked out the Garfield Park Conservatory just to get warmed up and see some Spring! It is nearly April you see and we can’t quite see you but you must almost be here. Come on Spring you can do it!!! Pretty please!!


12 Dates of Christmas 2012 Recap

Last year we started a special Christmas tradition called “12 Dates of Christmas”.  Basically you each write down six small dates, mix them up and seal them…it’s supposed to be a surprise but because we were so busy with events I wrote them on the calendar to make sure they happened!!:) They definitely helped us to enjoy our first Christmas far away from home and spend some quality time together amidst the chaotic schedule we both had….Thinking of traditions we would like to carry on until we’re old and wrinkled. This is one of them!

Here’s a little photo recap of last year…

Last week involved one jam packed tour across the river with some good company. We took hundreds of photos, but here are just a few that reflect a peaceful walk, some super talented children and lunch. It snowed the night before these were taken, making the mountains even more breath-takingly beautiful…

For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together.
