We celebrate a couple of birthdays in March. The first one is this little peanut Avery. She is my niece's daughter. Somehow she just turned 5, I think she was just born a couple of years ago, so I don't know how that happened. So fun to have a little one to celebrate birthdays with!
Not too much happened in between her birthday and Billy's, but I'll share the photos that I took on those days. First, a decoration that resides in my Christmas cactus. A little color for the days that are pretty bleak outside.
Blue skies and bare trees, sometimes that's all you got.
Brian and I took a trip over to the Como Park conservatory, just to see a little color. I love this fern that was just opening up. There is something about a fern unrolling that makes me think of prehistoric days.
The only thing prehistoric about this guy is his facial hair. I think he wears it well!
You know it's a slow day when all I have is a picture of the cat.
Another slow day...
Some grocery store lilies to brighten things up.
The ice on the creek at the farm. Or is it crick? I just know that it's not big enough to be a stream!
Who cares, bring me food.
The flowers opened up quickly.
I usually pull the pollen things off as soon as the flowers open up, but I like how they look in pictures.
Pulling them prevents the mess when they fall, and it helps the blossoms to last longer....but they look cool. I went for looking cool this time around.
And finally, the 2nd March birthday. My littlest boy turned 20. At 6'5" he isn't little, and at 20 I guess he isn't a boy.
But in my mind and heart, the boys are just 2 and 4 years old...and besides, it's the only way I can get by with saying I'm still 29! Denial is a powerful thing. :-)
