“Toto, I’ve got a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore”

***It is Post Card Update Time ***

Each time we receive a post card or two ~

I will post an update on The Post Card Project

To Thank Those of you who are sending them in for us!!

We couldn’t do it without you!!  =)

I am shamefully behind in sending out our Hand Written Thank you’s!

** Today ~ or my name is mud **  =)

For those of you who might be new to the fun ~

we are  begging you for hoping to collect Post Cards from the 50 United States

We would LOVE YOUR help ~ We Need you! =)

We started Our Postcard Project after reading an article in Family Fun Magazine ~

I happened upon in it January ~ just as the kids started learning about the 50 States.

Since my kiddos daddy is Canadian ~ which makes them 1/2 Canadian =) naturally!

We are collecting all Canadian Provinces too!!

We have 16 States and 3 Provinces so far ~

and about 10 from overseas as well!

A few friends were traveling out of country and offered to send us the overseas ones ~

So we added a Continent Map ~ we still need to label this one!

The kids find the State, Province, Country or Continent where the post cards arrive from and then we study fun facts about each one ~ we are all having a wonderful time with this project and will continue with it through the summer!!


Have I mentioned I have a head cold ??

just in case you think I am out of it today ~

the truth is ~ I am!!  =)



Mr. Mailman has brought us a few more Post Cards recently ~ Yippie !!!

These two little monkeys LOVE getting them in the mail!

A Special Thanks to Abby @ Sugar and Spice … or something like that =)

Abby sent us fun Horse postcards from Kentucky ~ My daughter Abby was especially  thrilled b/c it came from an Abby and she loves horses!!  We enjoyed the fun facts she listed on the back!

Abby is pregnant with her first baby ~ Congratulations Abby!!  I am enjoying following along in your blissful journey of expecting a baby! =)

Julie M.  from The Little Red Shop is currently on a fabulous road trip with her mom I believe =)  When she was in Montana ~ she sent us a postcard!  Bless You Julie!  Julie has a passion for all things vintage and all things lovely like flowers, old houses and beautiful mountains! She is far ahead of me on vintage Savvy~ness and I love visiting her at The Little Red Shop!  She also loves kittys!  =)   Thank You Julie M.!!

Kendra  at All & Nothing~ from Montana visits me here in Seizing My Day!  She sent us a Montana postcard too!  Bless You Kendra!  I don’t know much about her ~b/c   I just found Kendra’s blog today!!  Yay!  =)  Thank You for the postcard from Montana!  =)

Last but not least ~ we found a Post Card some dear friends of ours sent us last summer

from Kansas!!  They visited the Little House on the Prairie cabin ~ fun fun!  Oh the memories of Laura and all her mischief from the show and the books!!  This location is on my “one day I will visit” list !   I tried to introduce my little girl to Little House a while back and she just wasn’t that into it ~ maybe this year she will have a heart for Laura?!!

Special thanks to our friends Emma, Annie and Ellie for contributing to our Map!!

Did you know there is a Wizard of Oz Museum in Wamego KS??

I just learned that ~ I guess we will have to stop there when we go visit Laura’s cabin!

“one day”

That’s all folks!!  Here is another picture of our updated Map ~

Please Please Please take a look and if there is not a post card on YOUR state ~

or if you are planning a vacation in one of our open states ~

We would be Eternally Grateful if you would send us one!!  =)

Just leave me a comment and I will send you our snail mail address!

Thankful, blissful, thrilled, delighted, happy….

feelings one gets when they receive postcards from lovely blog friends!!  =)

Do you see the Giant Tree to the left of the map?  That is a Giant Tree from the Red Wood Forest!  lol!  Did you know that they are as tall as the USA?  No, Me either?!!  =)

Apparently I need to work on Scale measurement!  =)

We might ~ maybe ~ drive there this summer and camp in the Red Wood Forest!

Have you ever been?

We are learning about Landmarks all over the USA ~ =)

What National Landmarks have you visited??

Have a great weekend!

Don’t forget we are willing to bribe you ~ no shame!   =)

    I love that your kids are learning so much about the states as they come in from the mail. We too are doing this very thing but the response hasn’t been as well received as yours but we are grateful for what we have gotten so far.

    Which is your favorite?

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat

    Thanks for the shout out:) I’m so glad the kids like the cards! I could barely decide between all of the beautiful horse post cards. (The college I attended here actually had a horseback riding class for a PE credit! I sure did take it!) Thanks also for the kind words! I’m so glad we “met” in this blogland! You really do get to feel like you become friends with bloggy people!

    Hee hee. 🙂 I had no idea there was a little house on the prairie cabin in real life, that is something I’d love to see too.
