This is the 202nd post of things we love for the week. We post each Thursday along with LeeAnna from Not Afraid of Color. Several additional friends also share on a weekly basis – be sure to check them out as you will surely find something to inspire you. “From the fullness of His grace, we have all received one blessing after another.” John 1:16
Tree lights reflection! This picture isn’t mine or even taken near me, but it is striking nevertheless. It is Christmas tree lights reflecting in a pond. A small, young boy is walking by and pointing at the pretty lights. It just touched my heart. I can easily see our Colty, who is now approaching two years old, pointing with wonder at the pretty lights. I’m also certain I would hear, Pretty! and, No, no, no! with a small shake of the head. He’s such a good boy!
Light Show! Speaking of lights, The Glencoe Botanic Garden has its light show again this year. Lightscape had to take a break in 2020, but it is back with a vengeance for 2021. Unfortunately or fortunately, it is sold out for this year and that doesn’t surprise me one bit. Even driving by is a treat because they adorn many of their huge trees with a light wrap. Gorgeous and stunning is what I think each morning as I drive by.
Racine (Wisconsin) Underground Railroad Freedom Heritage Trail. Ten markers have recently been installed in my hometown marking their involvement in the underground railroad. There is also a walking tour which takes you to each of the ten sites and explains the importance of their involvement. That is something I would love to walk this summer or even late-Spring.
Unexpected thanks! I received this wonderful tea assortment from one of the teachers in our district along with a sweet note. I had been helping her with finishing up some required paperwork and we had a few conversations clearly up the confusion. None of it was worthy of such a nice thank you surprise but I welcomed it nevertheless. I’m now sharing the wonderful assortment with everyone in the office. Doesn’t a nice warm cuppa tea sound good right about now?!
Our littles . . . celebrated a big birthday on Tuesday with Addison’s turning three. She was very excited, especially about the special BROWNIES with BLUE frosting. She had a hand in making the frosting – both her and Chase looked a bit like Smurfs after taste testing. Dominic took her for a chilly joy ride in the morning, followed by some present opening. She was so happy to see the Moana book! Later, it was time to blow out the candles and enjoy those brownies.
We had snow over the weekend, and Dominic was happy to display the slightly-too-large snowsuit he donned to go outside. He and Addison spent some time making Paw Patrol puppy tracks in the fresh snow. Finally, Addison told Chase he couldn’t come in her bedroom. As the second to last shot shows, Chase wasn’t too happy about it while Dominic just kept playing with his truck. I say get used to it boys! Finally, I had to share the cute dinosaur jammies Dominic picked out for himself and his brother. Don’t they look so darn cute in them?! We think so. ~smile~
