Fun Times
We have been relaxing, skating, hanging out, trying to find our messy house

We have quite a bit of snow, we warmed up to -1 this afternoon. That made for a nice break.
I am hoping to try snowshoeing tomorrow.
 I will let you know how it goes.

Merry Christmas
A busy time here at the farm. Our kids are all home they have been skating, tobogganing, laughing, playing joking it has been fun.
School was out late this year so it made it a bit more of a whirl wind but now they have a lot of playing time.
We have quite a bit of snow, it is very bright out. With the sun shining we need sunglasses on today.
My house looks like a bomb has gone off a really bad mess.
Enjoy your Christmas Holiday

The Sheep are quite happy it is funny how they always walk in a line. This is the first time I have had sheep who want to sleep in the shelters. I guess it is because they have less wool. They seem to be in really nice shape. The coyotes have been right along the fence line though which is a little nerve wracking.

The skating rink is having a hard time this is the second time I have started in our weather is really jumping around. All I need is it to be around for Christmas holidays for the kids.

Salem is growing so big he is really lovely. A very happy cat as soon as he gets near someone or picked up he purrs so loud. Oh and guess what he has learned to catch himself a bird :( I wish he would take a liking to mice.

Rain, rain and rain
Wow if this rain had been snow we would be digging out for days.
Christmas Spirit has found us, our tree is up and  a bit of Christmas cheer in decorations around the house.
Our two older boys went out and found the tree, it is perfect.
 It looks really lovely.

The Lavender house is decorated it is cozy and nice.
Our ice rink is gone only puddles.

Good Sunday Morning raining so much rain! if it would be snow you would not see us for a year.
The good part of the no snow it is way safer for my kids for driving. Today’s agenda after the usual coffee, farm chores I think it should be pictures of the Christmas tree in the Lavender House.
 Bring our Christmas tree in and set it up this part worries me, it is usually my husband’s job but he is off on a road trip.
So I will need supplies of a tree, stand, hammer, wood to level, binder twine string in case I need to tie it up, nails and lots and lots of lavender for calming when it leans too far and topples...
I dream every year how wonderful the tree will look and every year well it kind of looks like someone threw up the ornaments on it.
And, plus it does not help when my children hang half eaten cookies by string or a tooth brush off it :)
I hope you have the most wonderful, pleasant, stress-free Sunday EVER!!
