Our family enjoyed this video. If you want to start your Christmas season praising God, watch this video and smell the fragrance of Heaven.
The busy-ness of life has kept us from updating in a while. We are so sorry! Let me try to get you up-to-date with all that’s going on at Sunny Patch.
Our new buck, Balto, is doing well. T.J. and Tom have experienced his strength on a number of occasions! The does seem to like him, to put it delicately. The bees are prepared for the winter, and so we won’t be checking on them anymore until the spring. That’s kinda sad, because they’re the most awesome thing we’re doing out here right now. Our friends the Blouins came over to see how we slaughter chickens. They were real troopers and got their hands really dirty, too!
We’ve been working on homemade Christmas presents with our friends, the Kemps. They’ve come here several times, and we’ve been working fast and furious. But we can’t tell you what the presents are, because of the chance that grandparents might visit this website!
We’ll post more pictures of these projects after Christmas.
Our 300 strawberry plants came in and are now planted. That was a pretty big job. All hands were on deck. Paw-Paw guided us through the process and later went back and corrected any mistakes we made.
And after three weeks, you have…
We thank God for the rain and the sunshine that are helping our strawberries grow.
Since August, we’ve had a birthday each month. Joy had her first birthday. T.J. turned seventeen, Katie eight, and Emily fourteen. Ben will be six in December. It’s been great fun celebrating each child’s big day. But I must admit, as a mom, it’s a little bittersweet. They seem to be growing up so fast.
We’re looking forward to Thanksgiving this week and we’ve had fun studying about the first Thanksgiving. Everyone has put in their special orders for Thursday’s meal. We hope everyone has a very happy holiday!
