People always warned me that I would keep filling all free space on my iPhone with images and video of our daughter, Karah Elizabeth Ferron. Needless to say, there was no argument.

She uses all her strength months later to crawl for the first time September 13.

Nestled behind blocks of homes adorned with holiday lights in the Severn community, whistles and bells sound from a freight train as dusk settles in the land of Beaverton Cliffs. A boy lies on his back, making a snow angel while sledders race down a slope beneath the train trestle. Travelers ride a passenger train through a picturesque landscape, where the mountainside town’s residents never fail to wave at passers-by.
Excited children and adults watch the two trains pass each other in the holiday-themed, G scale train garden created in John and Kim Beverly’s front lawn at 7927 Stone Hearth Road. “People need a little shot of Christmas spirit,” laughs John Beverly, who has created the display for the past two years. “If you cant get a little bit of Christmas spirit from coming out here and walking down the sidewalk and listening to the music and watching the trains, then you’re just a Scrooge.”
