A Week of Homestead Photos October 4th - 11th

What an amazingly busy week we have had here on our little homestead. The oldest country kid is now a full fledged 4Her. I was super busy making headstones, candy, costumes, and curtains for our annual Halloween camping trip. And of course we still had to tend critters and homeschool. While this is my favorite time of the year, it is also the most exhausting! But no matter how tired I am, I can always find small moments that make me smile.....

The oldest country kid graduated the clover
bud program and is now a full fledged 4Her

I made homemade headstones for Halloween. I think they turned out great.

Bob the Bobwhite quail loves a good dust bath.

Homemade chocolates for our camping trip. 

I love the smell and feel of a campfire.

The country kids doing a three legged race. This is amazing as they don't really get along, like ever!

Hay ride selfie! LOL He had a great time.

Beware the Grim Reaper.

Someone loves his squirrel costume I made him. 

Alas, it did not come with super powers and he was unable to climb trees. LOL

Remember to take time out of your busy day to find your own things to make you smile!


  1. I love the squirrel costume. He looks like an Ewok from Star Wars. It must be so warm. Great pics!

    1. It is warm and we are so chilly at Halloween, so that is a great thing :)

  2. That's adorable! I still love the costume you made. And the headstones are great, my hubby would love those!

    1. The headstones were pretty easy o pull off. I will have a tutorial up today (I hope... sick kiddo)

  3. I LOVE the squirrel costume, nice work!
