Hooray for the Red White & Blue!

Fireworks and cookouts; parades and sparklers-it's always inspiring and fun. We hope that you will enjoy celebrating the 4th of July with this small bit of celebration too!




Bump N. D'Knight Farm

There are strange things happening at the D'Knight's Farm.  There are loud noises, moans, and scratching sounds coming from the barn! Where are all the farm animals?  Did you see the ghosts peeping out from the windows of the farmhouse?  And who is that looking out the window of the attic?  There is much mischief afoot at the farm tonight-come and see if you can make sense of everything.  But beware-there is still something or someone going bump in the night!



A Churchyard Christmas

It's the children's churchyard nativity and all is not well. Halos are crooked, crowns are bent and some of the camels have escaped! After all the years of helping with the children's Christmas programs, we decided to share some of our favorite memories with you in our design! We hope that you will enjoy our new chart. Remember all those wonderful, hectic days of Christmas when children were blessing us with their enthusiasm and antics! Watch out for those runaway camels!


 Memorial Park

This is the newest design in the Down The Lane series! It's spring and the whole town has turned out to cheer for their teams at the frist game of the seaon.  The wooden stands are full and there are children in wagons and on fences trying to get the best seat.  The dog is even in the outfield ready to catch one of the balls on the fly!  come get your peanuts, popcorn and hotdogs!  It's time to play ball!
