Hey! Santa’s coming back to Rosemont. Yea, he likes us so much he’ll be here two evenings, and he’ll be collecting toys for less fortunate kids in the area. So mark your calendars for the evenings of December 5 and 6, from 6 to 8 pm, and come out to see him in the Rosemont Community Association annual Santa Parade and Toy Drive. We will have a route map posted here soon, but on the 5th he will be in the area south of Kiefer, and on the 6th he will be north of Kiefer. So gather ups some nice new toys and the kids of all ages, and come out to greet Santa as he goes by on a special sleigh.

Happy Thanksgiving

His face is one big “Ooh” expression, and his eyes are as big as saucers! This is one child who truly appreciates the magic of the holiday season.

And his enthusiasm only grows!

Hannah captured her little boy’s wonderment and uploaded the video to Twitter along with the caption, “Spreading some Christmas cheer...

Happy Fourth of July from our family towards yours.


History of USA Independence Day

On July 4, 1776, the United States of America proclaimed its independence from England by signing the Declaration of Independence.

While the signing of the Declaration itself was not completed until August, the Fourth of July holiday is seen as the official anniversary of U.S. independence.
