With all the negativity in the world, I thought I'd dedicate a page to positive stuff - stuff that makes me smile laugh or just feel good inside.  If you have something you want to add to this page just let me know. After all, there's no such thing as too much of a good thing!

Most Smiles are started by another smile so here's some smiley links:-D

Charming Child
by Emily Dickinson
Know what it is to be a child?... It is to believe in love, to believe in loveliness, to believe in belief; it is to be so little that the elves can reach to whisper in your ear; it is to turn pumpkins into coaches, and mice into horses, lowness into loftiness, and nothing into everything, for each child has its fairy godmother in its soul.

Babies smiles are bits of heaven.  This pic reminds me of when our kids were small.  They've certainly grown but I'm still just as addicted to their smiles as ever!    (Dustin says, "Thanks Mom." )

A couple of really cool things about living in the country
We have a tobogganing hill TO DIE FOR in our front yard.
We got to watch a baby cow be born right beside our house.  The boys were totally impressed.
We have a nest of Starling eggs in our mailbox which has made mail retrieval a little more challenging but it's been exciting to go out and count the eggs from time to time with the kids.
We got our new dog, Pookie.
I don't have to walk the kids to school in the rain anymore or push a stroller through wet snow because they take the bus.  Ironically, they leave the house about ten minutes later than they did when we were in the city which also means we get to spend a little more time easing into the day.
The kids have a huge yard to play in and trees to climb.
We have a lake down the street(which I look forward to swimming in this summer).
No one cares if you BLARE your music.
Fewer restrictions on pets.
Woodpeckers are just WAY too cool.

A couple of really cool things about living in the city
Being able to walk to the store in under an hour.  Heck being able to walk ANYWHERE in under an hour!(lol)
There's almost always a park nearby
Shopping Malls
