If you want to cut your own Christmas tree in Batavia, Geneva or St. Charles IL this year, then you should visit one of our local tree farms.

So my wife and I take our 9 year old out for her birthday party after Thanksgiving.  She's stoked.  Claire is my Steddy Eddie of the family.  They're all great in their own way, but she is Ms. Steady Eddie.  Needless to say, you would have thought that we purchased the entire Chuck E Cheese franchise.  After the older brothers got tired, she kept on keeping on.  Here is mom helping our four year old by acting as a pair of training wheels.  Life doesn't get much better now does it?

Tanglewood Hills Batavia IL Market Report November 1 2011 Tanglewood Hills is a subdivision of traditionally-styled custom homes set in the rolling hills on the southern edge of Batavia, IL.  (See more...) There have been 12 closed home sales in Tanglewood Hills in 2011. Closed prices range from $440,000 for a bank owned foreclosure to $1,650,000 for a truly stunning home on Alberosky Way.

FAMOUS CELEB CYCLES THROUGH TOWN! So have you heard who was spotted in town recently?  I can't remember the last Hollywood star to come through here since Tom Hanks back when they were filming in Geneva, IL. Well, again with a movie filming close by, it looks like one physically fit actor decided to take the opportunity to enjoy the numerous bike trails and beautiful scenery of the Fox Valley.  He was caught stopping for an oh so healthy lunch over at the Batavia Public Library. Check out the whole story of Russell Crowe and his visit to our fair city by checking out this awesome post at Patch! And hey, Russell, if you're looking to make the tri-cities your home away from home, you know who to call...
