It was a little hard as there was no snow, and well it just didn't feel like Christmas in Michigan. I mean the temps were in the 50s! But I forced myself to pull up those bootstraps, get things ready, and find joy in doing so.
I hope you enjoy the small things in life that made me smile this week.....
|Our tinsel pig is supposed to guard the tree, but Anna |
the cat had her way with chewing on pin needles. Bad pig. Silly cat!
|It is the holiday season.... you can never use too much butter when backing, right?!?!|
|Ms. Ester relaxing (or scared stiff? LOL) |
in the littlest country kids arms.
|Per a request from the oldest country kid, I whipped up a pumpkin pie for Christmas dinner.|
|The littlest country kid wanted a "shooting truck" aka tank for Christmas from Santa. |
Hubby about died when he saw how "Santa" had wrapped it. What?!?! Santa is creative!
|We might have made too many sweets, said no one ever at Christmas! LOL|
|Heidi the Homestead Hound celebrated Christmas with a new stuff cow. All we had |
to do was shake the package at her and she unwrapped it all by herself.
|All the critters got a special breakfast on Christmas morning. |
The chickens dug into the meal worms.....
|Until the ducks ran them off and took their share!|
|The littlest country kid was delighted to get his very own donkey! And I am |
delighted we don't have to feed it or clean up poo!
|Nate was on farm protection duty on Christmas. No cattle rustling while he is around!|
|We turned off the technology for a while and stepped back in time |
with my antique stereoscope and views. The oldest country kid had
a blast looking at 3D images from around the world.
Remember to take time out of your busy day to find your own things to make you smile
