Archive for December, 2015

Family fun is always something we look forward too and are looking for. Especially when we have little ones in our household.  I have grandchildren who are growing up so fast. At 19 and 12 there are many things they feel are way too young for them. But, a Christmas light display brings out the young at heart. Even when you are 19 and 12 years of age.

A great time is had by all at the Storybook Lane in the little community of Dilley, Oregon just outside of Forest Grove. It is a great place for the little ones to enjoy the story book characters they read about. It is also a great place for those who are a little older to revisit their childhood. You get to re-visit scenes of nursery rhymes that you knew of from your childhood.

The Storybook Lane is operated by a family and their friends. They have donated their time and money into bring some joy to everyone who visits. It takes them months to put it all together and it is free for you to visit. Donations are always welcomed. If you do visit donate what you can to keep this great tradition alive for all to enjoy.

We do have fun in Oregon!

We know during winter the weather can give us some ups and downs. The last few years our Oregon weather has been very mild when it comes to storms.  This last week we have been experiencing those wind and rainy storms that remind us of 1996/1997. Many of our small communities have had flooding from the rivers, streams and creeks that are within our beautiful state.

We know that we need the rain during the winter and spring months. It helps to bring snow into our mountain ranges. Those snow packs help us with our water supplies throughout the state. The snow packs also help to prevent forest fires during the summer months. Which is a very good thing. We here in Oregon are big for the outdoors. Spending time in our forests and enjoying outdoor sports are a life style for us. We need the snow in the mountains to have fun in the summer.

In the mean time we sometimes experience those creeks, rivers and streams to over flow their banks. We come together with neighbors to help out those who need help during these times. To help those small business owners who need us to be patrons as they rebuild their businesses after being flooded.

So, please remember those who are in your neighborhoods who need a helping hand during this time. They may not ask but reach out to see if there is something you can do. You may not have money to give but, you may be able to give some blankets, clothes or even some food from your cupboards that could help. You could even give an hour or two to pitch in and do some cleaning. We have many elderly folks in our neighborhoods who would love to see you stop by to help to rake some leaves.

Enjoy giving and helping those who need you!
