I sure did a lot of these collages during this year's photo project. A little over 2 weeks and I will be done with this photo project! Looking forward to less editing time. I have learned a lot about my camera and editing, but ready to move on to other goals.
Hopefully the start of an annual tradition. After Christmas, will plant it in our yard, hope for it's survival, and watch it grow through the years. We got our tree from Hager Tree Farm in Ashmore. We had lots of fun going to the tree farm. It was our first time getting a live tree. Let's hope it does well. :)

left on the porch overnight to adjust, then brought inside this afternoon after temps warmed up. We decorated it early this evening.
Saturday morning, Brian and the boys ran from our house (out in the country) to Nana's house (in town). From our driveway to her driveway is exactly 3.1 miles = 5K. Iris and I drove into town a little while later. Iris finished the last several blocks with Gareth. Good job, guys!
Hello from Brian, Carla, Gareth, Zane, and Iris. We live in rural east central, IL on 10 acres. Brian works as a web programmer and Carla currently is a SAHM, used to do social work type stuff.
We have 2 sons, Gareth and Zane and 1 daughter, Iris. We have 4 cats and chickens, ducks, and guinea fowl.
This blog is mostly for friends and family to see what is happening in our lives and to serve as an online scrapbook. Come share in our adventures of raising 3 kids that were born within 2.5 years of each other and moving to the country as of June 2009 to live on 10 acres. Our plan is to fix up the old farm house, live in it a few years, and start building a new home further back on the property.
We are interested in gardening, beekeeping, sustainable living, attachment parenting, and secular humanism.
