Seems like I’m there a lot, but I’m not. I just try to get as many pictures as possible when I am there.
This one’s definitely one of my favorites. Ever!
A few days ago I had a little note card giveaway on this blog, and out of the 30-something people who qualified, only six entered. I was hoping for a few more, but I’m sure those six were happy about their chances of winning 😉
I had my daughter Sara help me pick the winner, which she was more than happy to do. She even provided her sun hat to put the names in, and I thought I’d take a little video of the drawing. I apologize for the sudden ending…seems that I’ve trimmed a couple of frames too many off the video (oops!)…. but I think you can still see the name of he winner if you don’t blink at the very end 😉
But before we get to the video, here is an image of one of the note cards included in the set.
CONGRATULATIONS!! Your set of note cards will be on their way to you by the end of the week! 🙂
** I’ve added a still shot of the video in the comments, where you can see the name of the winner more clearly.
At the Rosine Smith Sammons Butterfly House (part of Texas Discovery Gardens) in Dallas.
I know this picture has nothing to do with a snow day, but I have been slacking lately, forgetting to schedule posts in advance and not realizing until the morning that nothing published. Some of you may have noticed 😉
Well today the kids got a snow day, after yesterday’s freezing rain and sleet (but no snow), and with the roads a sheet of ice, I’m going to put everything else aside and dedicate this day to scheduling some posts for the next couple of weeks.
This photo was taken at the Rosine Smith Sammons Butterfly House in Dallas.
On our last visit to the Rosine Smith Sammons Butterfly House at Texas Discovery Gardens, Sara got a butterfly to climb onto her hand so she could rescue it from the walkway.
(It’s such a shame to see some parents let their kids run wild in there to chase the butterflies and try to catch them, and not remind them to watch where they step!)
Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls
to arrive at its destination full of hope.

Found these two wandering around the Butterfly House on one of our visits there. Kind of cute, don’t you think? I want a pet snail 🙂
…it’s a Turnsole!
(Thank you to Sarah, who commented to tell me the name of this beautiful flower)
