Catchin' some critters
Scary Spider
Such beautiful flowers!
The swamp of Cypress Gardens
Big Brother's class went of a field trip to Cypress Gardens that I chaperoned a while back. It was such a beautiful place and so undiscovered. I was shocked at how noncommercial it was-although they did have a gift shop. They took us on a 20 minute canoe ride thru the swamp, gave us a tour of the butterfly house, gave us a lesson on insects and pollination, pond poking and ate lunch at picnic tables. It was so much fun!

Elf's Visit

My boys will be greeted tomorrow morning by one of Santa's helpers-The Elf on the Shelf. This will be the first year a little mischievous elf has visited our home. I am sure the boys will have lots of fun with him. Hopefully they will watch their behavior at least for the month of December since the elf will be reporting to Santa each night. I have a feeling our elf is going to get into lots and lots of trouble.
