December Advent Activities for 2014....
Illumination at the Morton Arboretum If you live in the Chicagoland area you need to visit the Morton Arboretum to see this light show! We were hugging trees to watch the colors change, turning cranks to change the lights of vignettes, enjoying music set to dancing lights through the pines....it was a feast for the eyes!
Santa Parade-Our town puts on an annual Christmas parade and this year my best pal and her family came along with us!
