It is a good spring here.  We are enjoying having Jeff and Kim living close by.  He has a new job working at the Cleveland Browns stadium.  Now all my kids have left Spencer. V__5027 We added a new gazebo to our back patio and lots of new shrubs, a patio peach tree and other perennials.  It’s my favorite time of year.  Earlier I sewed Jenn window awnings and a visor for her T@B trailer.

Enjoying Christmas

What a fun day with the kids yesterday!  First we went to Severance Hall to hear brass musicians from the Cleveland Orchestra give a Christmas concert, then to Botanical Gardens where we enjoyed so many beautiful Christmas decorations, flowers and gingerbread houses.  Then there was the train ride out in the gardens, plus a walk in the woodlands where we saw other outside decorations.  We topped the night off with a Star Wars movie with Will.  Needless to say, we were ready for bed when midnight rolled around.

VIOLET’S VISIT

Sam and Mike came for a visit and brought the girls.  We had a nice visit, even though Violet was cutting her first tooth, she was a happy girl.  Liberty got to swim in lake Erie.  We enjoyed the lake and a picnic supper with Eric, Bethany and kiddos.  One of Sam’s childhood friends came to see her from Akron while she was here as well.  Fun times!!
