My Grandparents had bird feeders in their backyard and they had a wide variety of birds visit them. Mostly Cardinals and Swallows, but they did have a mean old Blue Jay that scared all the birds and even the squirrels away. I took a few pictures of the cardinals. I wanted one of the Jay, but it didn't want to be seen by us human folks so he hid on the opposite side of the feeder... the bum!

If you click on the pictures you can see the Cardinals much clearer. :)

Pictures from Grandma's Birthday

Here are a few pictures from my Grandma's 90th birthday. There would of been more, but as a parent of one of the high energy kids there, I was into wrangling. There were at least 200+ people there and it was a great thing for Grandma to see all the love.

New Post for a New Year

Okay... so I haven't posted anything in over two weeks... sorry. :) But here I am... The new year is already flying by (okay... not so much flying, but it is going rather swiftly). My Grandma Swanson is having her 90th birthday this weekend and her friends and my mom and uncle are throwing her a party at her church on Sunday. Arcadia and I have decided to attend also. We thought it might be a good idea to do so. Too bad it has to be in Northern Illinois in the middle of winter. Oh well... not that I'm not used to cold weather and snow, right?

Well... anyways... I'll post some pictures when we get back. I tried to upload some Christmas videos, but they aren't uploading for me well. I'll have to try again.
