Posted by Jennifer under Just Life (No Respond)

Yes, I know it is February but I just needed to close off 2013. Bear with me! Chloe got glasses for the first time ever. She just needs to wear them for reading. She wasn’t delighted but her doll got a pair too and that seemed to help the situation a little bit.  John got […]

Joy to the World

Dominion of Canada

Posted by Jennifer under Just Life (No Respond)

Mulch for the Playground
