A diary of the day to day happenings on our homestead.The good days, the bad days and those bordering on total chaos...

I hope everyone had a joyful and blessed Christmas! I know we here on the homestead did. The month of December has once again flown by. Thanksgiving was no sooner over than the plans for the annual "Turkey Cookin" and Christmas party started. Planning, decorating and cooking have consumed us. By the time it was over, Christmas was just a few short days away. It was filled with family and friends, for which I am truly thankful. My boys were both here, unlike Thanksgiving and I felt my circle complete.
One of my favorite gifts was this Christmas tree platter made and given to me by my niece. She is a budding young artist that will graduate in the spring and head off to art school in the Fall. Thank you Crystal!
Of course, Christmas isn't only for kids. The dogs enjoyed their gifts as well!

Yes, a good time was had by all.
